Just an FYI - Penn Mac has a 1/2 price on shipping now
« on: April 27, 2017, 03:42:12 PM »
Their shipping is normally rather expensive if you get perishables as they pack in a thick Styrofoam box with bags of frozen ice inside.
Great packing though, everything I have ever ordered was still cold when it  arrived.

the site does not mention any stipulations on 6 pound cans of sauce or flour.  Which is correct?

I hadn't noticed that when I placed my order.
I did have a #10 can of tomatoes in the order and did get the discount.

about a year ago i had tried to get my first order from penn mac but the excessive shipping cost and lack of coupon made me cancel.  Here about a year later I just now ordered over $200 - some perishable (cheeses) , some sauce , some olive oil, some flour.  I will update here to see if they take 1/2 off the $90 ship cost!  If not I will have to cancel.

When I was billed the full amount, I questioned and and sent email to PennMac.

Here is the response:

"Your credit card will show an "AUTH" on your on-line account, which is an authorization for Penn Mac to put a hold on your invoice amount until we ship your order.
 Once your order is shipped, Penn Mac will actually charge your card, and minus out any "OUT OF STOCK" items.
If you have any requests or problems please contact us at

[email protected] or by phone at (412)471-8330, ask for the Internet Dept."


I guess their Web software doesn't know how to discount shipping and put a hold on the discounted amount.

z06 , right that corresponds with what the site mentions (they will manually adjust the cost and charge the adjusted price when it is ready to ship).  So I will keep a close eye on my bank to make sure that I am in fact saving almost $50 on shipping costs.

placed order tuesday around 11am but they haven't done anything yet.  I guess I missed cut-off of the 3 day ship window so they'll ship next monday.

In case anyone is following this or is interested there was a "mix up" with the order.  I am working with Penn mac now to see if they're going to make it right.  Things didn't go smoothly at all.  I  will post here with an update if Penn Mac is able to make it right with a satisfactory fix.
