    Default Looking for a PBA free alternative sippy or straw cup?

    Just letting those of you who missed my post in Frugal Finds that there is a Foogo (by Thermos) coop being run in Yahoo. If anyone is interested, the coop closes tomorrow. We still need fills of 2 pink sippies with handles and 2 blue straw cups.

    I am not the host of the coop but I do know the host from another (US based) chatboard.

    You can see my post here.

    I know one girl who ended up paying about $25 for one cup recently. Her review was so good that I have placed an order via the coop (as has she). The cups and straw sippies are $9 USD each and the food jars are $11 USD. There is also a $2 coop fee and shipping from the states to Canada.

    I would love some but I have no idea what to expect in terms of shipping which is why I haven't responded yet? Any idea??

    As far as I can figure as long the total package is no greater than 4 lbs then it should be about $12 something (or less) for shipping.

    Just for a rough idea, shipping to Canada via USPS using First Class International:

    1 lb - $4.66
    2 lb - $8.26
    3 lb - $11.86
    4 lb - $15.46

    If you exceed the 4 lbs then you are looking at $29.95 for a flat rate box.

    Don't quote me but that's what I figured it out to be. There could be potential duty/taxes to be paid but with small packages it's unlikely IME.

    I am splitting shipping and coop costs with another LM (our order is just under 4 lbs with 4 items total) so that makes it a bit less pricey. If you only want 1 or 2 items, perhaps another LM would join you too.

    YK Leslie, depending on what you are planning on ordering (if you are looking at waiting for the straw sippies as we are) I might be able to combine my orders with yours and we could all split the shipping. LMK what you are planning to order and I'll let you know if it will work out
