it's cause they ship FedEx. I got an email from them for my Thursday LP.
Though Shipping is usually displeasing from anywhere 4-6$ consistently, some charge more sometimes, like merch now. the only thing SRC has going for them Is the $2.99 "pre order" shipping. Which is BS, I don't get when the world will realize it takes $3 to ship an LP. But we all pay it! Even me.
