This review is from: SanDisk 4GB SDHC Secure Digital Card (Personal Computers)
I have found SanDisk cards to be the most reliable, and have been very happy with this particular card.
However, this product does not come in a cubic box, with sides measuring half a metre each. Nor does it weigh half a kilo.
Given that postage costs are partly calculated based on weight and dimensions, this data needs urgent correction.

yes I think the postage should be looked into as these items are so small and almost weightless. the cost of a first class stamp should be enough.

Well at next to nothing for the card what do you want ......blood?
If you're unhappy with a few quid for postage, go into Argos and pay £30 for it. That way you will avoid postage costs all together.

Bumping up the cost of postage in order to cover for making a worse margin on your actual product is pretty bad business.

It may be bad business but it still means the customer saves a large amount of money. Even paying £5 postage for it you still save £20+ rather than buying it in the shop. So what is the problem if you still get a huge saving?
Failing that, shop around. Try Play......you don't have to buy from Amazon. I get my regular SD cards from them for a few quid and there are no postage charges. I'm not sure if they have the SDHC cards though. But shop around a bit or don't complain........!

At least in this instance the Postage cost is correctly stated on the product page, so it's hard to blame the seller - if you don't like his postage charge, don't buy the item!
What's more worrying is the way Amazon have started allowing sellers to pretend to sell items at bargain prices, then suddenly bump the postage WAY up only when you get to the *checkout* stage. Recently I (almost!)) bought two tiny cables. They were priced at 51p each (which I KNEW was too good to be true), but on the product page the postage and packing was clearly listed as £3.99 per item. Fair enough - that made the price a bit more realistic.
At the checkout stage, I found that this had mysteriously increased to **£15** per item. So the two little leads, advertised at £2.02 with total postage of about £8, would actually have cost me more than £30. We need to start complaining vigorously to Amazon about this sort of thing, because it's happening more and more often. In this instance, they replied to me saying that basically the seller is free to charge whatever postage they like, regardless of what it says on the product page. Uh... sorry for the digression, but I'm still angry about it!!
Like I say, in this case the seller is being 100% above board and honest, correctly stating the costs in advance.
