This company advertises on TV & the internet that if you buy one birdhouse you get the second one free, just pay s&h of $7.95.

So I wanted 4 birdhouses, which is two at $19.95 each plus $7.95 for each birdhouse shipped. I did the math and without taxes, it should be as follows:

$19.95 x 2= $39.90

$7.95 x 4=31.80

Okay, so the total, again without taxes is $71.70.

I also agreed to buy a feeder for $9.95 with FREE s&h.

So, as any 4th grader would agree, the new total should be $81.65.

Imagine my surprise with their total, which comes up ONLY AFTER you hit "Proceed with the Order" button.

All of a sudden, their invoice total is a total of $155.00

WHAT!!!!! What kind of math is this company using?!?!?

Their invoice is broken down as follows:

CM8 Great American Peek-A-Boo Birdhouse

2 $39.90

CM9 Discounted Great American

Peek-A-Boo Birdhouse

2 $29.90

CMA Great American Bird Feeders

1 $9.95

Sub Total $79.75

Shipping $63.60

Tax $11.65

Order Total $155.00

Where exactly did the $63.60 for shipping come from?!? According to their own advertisements, it should ONLY be

$7.95 x 4 = $31.80

AND the taxes are only supposed to apply to the subtotal WITHOUT s&h, even using their numbers, it is NOT correct.

$79.95 x 8% = $6.40

The total I come up with, $71.90, is even less than their numbers $79.75.

EVEN ADDING THE TAXES, which is $4.74, the REAL TOTAL SHOULD BE ONLY $77.44 AND NOT $155.00!!!!!
