one thing I don't understand, all these ship to store orders were shipped using FedEx. Does it really save them by shipping to store?
They're Shipping to one location instead of multiple ones.

Much cheaper for FedEx and if
They have a deal with FedEx
Fedex would likely charge them less.

They did the FedEx method

They ship it with FedEx on a few pallets.
Much cheaper than shipping individually.

If they have a deal with FedEx, those rates would work to any location.
It's shipping pallets that makes it real cheap.

And how does anyone explain Amazon shipping 4 oversized boxes to my house? Do they not get charged based on dimensional weight? Label seems to say 25lbs. for a 2 or 3 lbs. item.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
