I do quite a bit of my shopping online. I like the rush of placing the order, waiting in anticipation, and the excitement when the plain brown box finally arrives. I love ripping through the packing tape and tissue paper to finally touch the coveted item.
And I absolutely refuse to pay shipping and handling charges.
This kept Anthropologie off my online shopping radar because of their exorbitant rates. Until now. If you sign up for an Anthro Card (no worries, it's not a credit card) and link it to your online account, you'll get free shipping on all orders now through September 7, 2009. You can sign up for an Anthro card here. You should receive your card number via e-mail within 48 hours and they will send you a card in the mail within the next week or so.
