Default Hookah shipping prices

Im looking to get a couple 50g to sample but I don't want to pay $8+ on shipping. Does anyone know any online vendors that don't overcharge for shipping small items?

Many vendors have deals with shippers so that they can charge a flat rate for larger items or orders. Shoot 'em an email and see if they'll work with you on what you want.

Try and shop local but if not then go online. Like UglyBiker said many vendors are more than willing to help out their customer, Just be polite ask for a flat rate box. The worst that can happen is they say no...

As a former retail manager who did a lot of shipping out of his shop, let me tell you this:

UPS charges a lot for shipping small items. I had to explain to a lot of my customers that it was difficult to get out a package for under $6. In fact, the corporate policy (Which I chose to ignore) was that all shipping was to be charged a minimum of $7.50.

I further broke the rules and would offer to send small packages through regular post, which was often cheaper for the smaller stuff. But, there's reasons I don't work there anymore.
