I was in and thanks for the link. Their website pissed me off. I know it distinctly stated there was a 2 pack limit for the Z series, so a dozen of each. So I selected 12 of each (6 dozen of each, hey it let me add to the cart!) and it went into the next phase of purchase. Thought I was good.  I buy in bulk and refuse to pay shipping so when it stated that there was free shipping for 50.00 or more, I had to do something. Every time I tried to pay for my order it was adding shipping and and saying I needed to add 50.00 to my cart to avoid it. I went so far as adding 2 packs each of the Z's and the Q star tour in case they trashed my order due to getting too many. Almost 60.00 should have qualified. Nope.

I lost patience. Then I saw a coupon code for 150.00 off of R15 Drivers. My favorite. Do you know how many of these are on their site? Zero.

So I left with nada. Oh well. My golf ball closet is full anyways and my garage is out of room for clubs too. I've got 9 drivers (8 older ones and my Rogue!) I haven't hit yet and a set of RazrX Forged 3-GW that haven't seen a ball either. I haven't even had the time to transfer them into the garage so my backseat is unusable due to all the clubs. Don't worry guys, they're buckled up!

Thanks for posting, OP. Iím not to the levels of many in accumulating balls, but I still snagged three dozen. I love the TP5x, but after all the great reviews for the XV I had to give these a shot.

I’m not sure which site you were on, but the linked site says $5.95 flat rate shipping on all orders.

I ordered 10 dozen XV’s.  $5.95 shipping, no tax.

There must be some confusion.  You can’t possibly  think $5.95 to ship 12 dozen golf balls is a deal breaker.   That’s .50 cents a dozen.

I wondered the same thing. Nowhere on golfballs.com does it state free shipping with a $50 purchase. Same with the alleged $150 coupon code for an R15 driver. Sounds like expired coupon codes may have been used.

When the website you're on specifically states 50.00 and over is shipped free, it's a deal breaker for me. At least this time. My outrage would have been far more limited if the golf ball closet wasn't already full. I certainly don't need anymore golf balls. Even letting my kids play premium balls sometimes, we won't run out any time soon. Something was all wonky with it anyways since pricing kept changing, free shipping was shown and then could never be used, etc. 5.95 shipping isn't much I'll grant. But when the link provided by the OP advertised free shipping for orders over 50.00 and then it always charged me shipping, it was a deal breaker. Mainly because I was cherry picking for something I certainly don't need.

I like the idea of buying in bulk and getting things shipped free. Some mediums don't support this all the time such as person to person deals on eBay. I'm ok with paying for it then. Otherwise I'd rather get the thing I need and three things I could use for 60.00 shipped free than only getting the thing I need for 20.00 and paying 6.00 shipping.

The coupon code for the R15 was admittedly from another site. The 50.00 shipped free was on the site that was linked.  Let me see if I can find that again, I'll grab a few screenshots.

Ok I might be a little crazy but I wasn't here. I only looked for a coupon code after the website itself advertised free shipping on orders of 50.00 or more. Luke straightened me out, this is considered a promo and doesn't count for free shipping. No biggie but there wasn't any fine print stating that. It's probably in the terms somewhere but when I'm looking at golf balls and you flash "free shipping" on my screen, I'd then expect free shipping. This coupon code was applied after I looked for it when I was charged shipping after they stated it would be free. Oh well.

Ok I'm resigned to paying shipping. Bleck. I'm seeing some large orders. I'm going to attempt one of them even though the rules state that you're limited to 2 of each type.

We'll see on that and how far down I can drive that shipping cost per unit. That's the only way I can feel good about getting hosed for shipping. Luke better have his calculator ready.... Wish me luck, I'll report back.

Pretty easy to get shipping close to $0.02/ball.

Bought 2 dz of the XV.  Tried them in the summer but thought they were too firm (currently play B33s).  Anyways, made a HIO from 187yds with the XV.  You have to like those results.....

I agree. Flip side... Don't offer free shipping to someone if you don't plan to honor it. I could care less about the 6 bucks. Hell I might have even paid it had they not had a big "SPEND 50.00 GET FREE SHIPPING" banner flying. At one point I had about 300.00 in my cart and there was still no free shipping as per advertised. There's no fine print.

I'm not losing any sleep over 6.00. But those thinking I am are kind of making me crack up. Lol! I don't need more golf balls, both my Urethane covered ball and my Surlyn covered ball closets are fully stocked.

I didn't like their free shipping that wasn't (because I tried to take advantage of a regular price they advertised). When I tried to checkout, I was charged shipping. Ok. There was fine print that wasn't attached to their free shipping offer. I don't really care. This is still an amazing deal, provided you get enough to offset the shipping charges. I was mildly perturbed when the "FREE SHIPPING FOR $50.00 PURCHASE " didn't apply. Oh well. Mildly perturbed means I didn't buy any of their golf balls. I simply stated such.

Is this really a crime? I'm the reverse of worked up over it. I stated why I didn't buy after admitting I was initially confused. Jake sorted that out for me and I moved on. That's all someone can do when they aren't happy with a company. Their shipping policy is crap in my opinion. We can disagree without it hurting my fragile ego, lol.  Most responses say "Its only 6 bucks" or "its xx a ball, dozen, etc". They're right.

I hate shipping charges. I try to buy enough when ordering things to skip it. According to their "free shipping" terms that came with their offer,  I'd done that. When it became apparent they didn't want my business, I moved on. No worries here. I posted that line of thought and have been met with differing opinions. That's ok. I'm a big boy and I get that not everyone feels the same way.

My only other argument, how many would walk away from an eBay deal where the seller and you had agreed on a price of 59.99 only to later have them ask for 6.00 more? Unless it was the deal of a lifetime, you'd tell them to stick it where the sun don't shine. Am I wrong there??

Not everything has to become an argument. I didn't like their shipping terms and stated such. I felt I'd been mislead. Oh well. It's still a great deal it just wasn't for me due to the reasons stated.  It wasn't Jakes fault so don't go blaming him, lol.

Amazing.... :stink:
There is always one drama queen in the bunch.

Lol. There's always someone that's upset that you didn't acquiescence to them in another thread in every bunch.

Come on man, I'm still offering a friendly handshake. I'm in the friend making business, not the reverse.

I'm a little high strung possibly. I blabber on about things for sure. But drama queen? Lol. Come on. I didn't want to pay shipping when it was offered to me seemingly with one string attached, spend 50.00. I tried to do that. I tried to do that x3. X6. Jake (ha?) informed me that they don't do free shipping for orders that they randomly determine to be promotional. Ok. No worries. I just won't order them. I don't need them. I'm set on balls til 2030 at least anyways.

Drama queen? I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever been called that. If I send you a golf glove can you personalize the autograph? Lol.

Dude (or Lady, you're user name is very ambiguous and I just don't know based on your responses), how did I wrong you? I've apparently stepped on your putt line at some point. If you'll point out where I did so, I'll apologize if appropriate.

Call me zany. Call me long winded. Question my ability to play golf. I'm ok with all of that because it's true. Drama queen? Ha. Here's how much drama I'd like. Please respond to me via PM only explaining exactly how I've wronged you. If I have I'd like a chance to understand how and why and a chance to turn this around and (following my mission statement) make a friend.

Continuing to follow me around and make snide remarks isn't cutting it for me. I really don't care, but a further denigrating reply in the public forum speaks miles more about you than it does me. If you have an issue with me, be it whatever, please respond only via PM. The rest of the board doesn't need to see that. Thank you. If I've wronged you than I am sorry. If you don't like reading my long winded replies, feel free to block my content. You have the power to make me disappear. If you don't want to sort this out via PM, please utilize that feature.

Have a great night.

Dale,

I am going to cherry pick some of your comments here, and my intention is friendly feedback.

I have learned that there is a certain decorum on this site to gain credibility and friendly conversation.  For the most part, everyone is friendly and willing to help.  I am guilty of making off-based comments occasionally, and have rolled a few eyes I am sure.  I have learned to edit, and think before posting.  There have been many threads that I avoid posting on, and multiple times that I type something out just to delete it after walking away for a minute.  I may be a hypocrite this time, though I hope you can see there is a reason you are receiving comments like "Amazing".  There are times when I post something stupid, and no one responds.  That is also a lesson that I have learned -- well thought out posts will receive well thought out responses.

So yes, you love to post here, and it may be “long winded” (your words).  The screenshot from your mobile device is a targeted marketing ad for free shipping, and fine print would have helped this entire situation – you are not wrong here.

It sounds like you are expecting an Amazon Prime level of service, and not everyone has the market share and economies of scale to provide free shipping in bulk.  Especially for a promotion of $20 a dozen balls that typically retail for $30 or more.  The fact that we are able to order more than a dozen (besides the print that states otherwise), means that we have to pick our Deals or No Deals accordingly.  As a consumer, you have a right to purchase what you want.

TLDR of your initial comments:

“Their website pissed me off.”
I lost patience.”
My outrage would have been far more limited if the golf ball closet wasn't already full.”
“I was cherry picking for something I certainly don't need.”
“I like the idea of buying in bulk and getting things shipped free.”

When you then type the below, it exasperates the issue.

“I'm not losing any sleep over 6.00. But those thinking I am are kind of making me crack up. Lol! I don't need more golf balls, both my Urethane covered ball and my Surlyn covered ball closets are fully stocked.”  
(No one thinks you are losing sleep.  This is accusatory.)
I'm the reverse of worked up over it.
“No worries here.”
“Not everything has to become an argument.”
“I'm set on balls til 2030 at least anyways.”

We get and understand that the “offer” of free shipping was misleading to you.  Most of us did not even see the "free shipping" offer, and directly saw the $5.99 shipping on the page, and at check-out.  Your long posts on $5.99 shipping, and humble bragging about having two closets full of balls which will last you until 2030, will definitely roll some eyes.

Hope everyone enjoys their Srixon balls!  I know I will.

Got mine in. Looked for, and could not find a free shipping code, when I started the thread, and days later. Never saw one.

However, at $6 shipping for 5 dozen balls...20.50 or so a dozen for a no compromise tour ball that I love... I'm am very happy and well stocked. One of the few times in life I receive an e-mail offer from a company that I was thankful for.

To the people that got these, are they the newest version? It says version 5 on the items web page which I believe is the most current?

Ok I'm resigned to paying shipping. Bleck. I'm seeing some large orders. I'm going to attempt one of them even though the rules state that you're limited to 2 of each type.

We'll see on that and how far down I can drive that shipping cost per unit. That's the only way I can feel good about getting hosed for shipping. Luke better have his calculator ready.... Wish me luck, I'll report back.

Getting ďhosedĒ for shipping? It costs money to ship something.  How is it ďhosingĒ anyone.  Shipping is never actually ďfreeĒ.  Even if it says its free, Itís rolled into the price in some way.    Amazonís ďfreeĒ prime shipping is rolled into both the price and the yearly membership fee. Itís a sales gimmick.

Anyway, thatís sort of irrelevant I guess.  What many of us are confused about is WHERE you saw ďfree shipping over $50Ē in the first place.

This is the page I get when I click on the link from the first post.  $5.95 flat rate:

The only free shipping I can find on their site is a code for a qualifying order of $75 or more, but it does specify it “cannot be combined with other promotions or discounts.”

And when buying the six ball packs, that code does say to add $75 to qualify for the promotion code. But it did specify earlier that it can’t be used on top of other promotions or discounts.
