We all know that nothing in life is free, so, just how much does 'free shipping' cost?  In order to offer 'free shipping', retailers must inflate prices to cover the shipping cost.  We searched out a few hot sauce retailers who offer 'free shipping', and compared the prices on a variety of orders.  The results are listed below.  To keep the comparisons as accurate as possible, we calculated shipping costs between the same zip codes, using the same shipping method.  Of the comparisons that we did, we found no 'free shipping' offers with lower final prices.

 

It is important to note that we did not run a large number of samples and just pick the 'best'.  In fact, after running these four comparisons, we felt that it was a sufficient sampling.
