A question about knitpicks
I saw somewhere that you can get free shipping instead of paying for shipping. How long does it usually take to get the package?

i think we have all had different experiences. i have had it take forever....others have had their packages right away. i usually pay the extra bit over the free shipping to get 3 day select because i get irritated waiting. if you qualify for free shipping the extra is usually about $8 or so.

If you order something that is on back order, they wait for it, then mail everything. I ordered options needles and a back ordered item on the 25th. They shipped my order this morning.

You get free shipping if you spend over $40. I've heard stories where it took a long time, but so far it hasn't been too bad for me. Anytime you are waiting for something it seems to take forever...kind of like watching a pot boil! I just got a package from them today. I ordered on 6/23 and they shipped it on 6/27 and it arrived 7/1. I was kind of irritated that it took them 4 days to ship, but am impressed it got here so quickly. The prices make it worth it for me.

I'm going to make this bag!

I never received my first KP order; whether it had to do with the free shipping and the shipping method they use, I don't know. Then they reshipped it, still with the free shipping, and it took two weeks. The next time I qualified for free shipping, I paid the extra for expedited shipping and the order came fairly quickly. I have mixed feelings about KP.

My orders have always come very quickly, whether I've paid for shipping or not. I always get the cheapest shipping if I have to pay...last Friday morning I ordered my Denises and they were here Tuesday morning.

My orders have always been quick with KP. The Options set I just got I ordered on 06/24 and I got them on the 30th, even though they advised a 7-14 day wait...

I've never gotten anything more than the basic shipping option.

My orders always come quick whether my orders qualify for free shipping or not. But if even if it did take a long time I would still order from them. Their prices are too good to pass up. I consider KP to be my LYS.
