I don't mind paying a little extra for the logo...because I like it and is meaningful to me...almost like supporting my favorite sport teams...but I do mind the S&H and feel that's just taking advantage of the consumer. However, I also feel that if I were in charge of marketing at SP I would be upset as well as the SP product cannot be moving like it should or what SP would want...
Some of the prices are high also. I just bought 16-ounce insulated tumblers at my local CVS - price $5.99 each or 2 for $10. The same item with the Sparkpeople logo is $10 each. As far as I'm concerned, there's no reason to buy SP products just for the logo. After all, that's free advertising for SP, so the prices should be low to encourage members to buy them.
I bought the cookbook & the Spark book at Amazon.com - NO SHIPPING if the total order is over $25.
I really wanted to buy some SP products...added them to my cart as I felt they were reasonably priced...BUT then the shipping and handling came....wow...my wife works for the post office and she said that was ridiculous...I had maybe $10 in cart 2 small items and they wanted to charge like $30 for S&H....that's really a shame...I looked at the shipping price guide and the more you spend the higher the S&H....they need to take a look at that
