OP Please - Shipped price always in TITLE

Op do you really think this mug cost $8 to ship ?

Please, When posting a "FREE" item in HOT DEALS and there is a SHIPPING PRICE, Please add the true SHIPPING PRICE to the TITLE.

I always want to know how much that "FREE" Item is going to Cost Me.

This.
Free means does not cost money. To acquire this mug, you must pay money. $8 in money. $8 > $0

Well by that logic.. Winning a free vacation means getting a 1099, means pay money in taxes. Paying Taxes > 0.

The mug it self is technically free.

You are technically correct, the best kind of correct.

Using my logic, it would be more like having to pay a transaction fee to the entity giving you the free vacation. In fact, it would be like having to pay a transaction fee which is roughly equal to the value of the vacation.
What if the mug was $8 with free shipping? Would anyone consider this to be a free mug? I would consider this price to be roughly the actual value of the mug... which is what is being paid here in this deal.
