I do not mind paying alittle more for the logo as well. If it means something to you then it is no big deal but the shipping and handling is a different story altogether.

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.

Thanks for the feedback, we will pass it along to the company that runs the store.

That has come up several times... but the shipping remains high.

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
