It's funny... I ordered a LOT from Amazon this year... Tons of gifts for XMas, bday's, and when the final wave hit I ordered multiple extras off them as the prices kept going down down down, and extras of the early army builders taht obviously didn't get price drops.
Free shipping was more than enough to entice me multiple times. I just ordered something off them for my shop actually since I always wanted a snake cam.
I've NEVER gotten anything bad from them... Ever. It's all always arrived packed great. We have a shipping place from them in PA. Maybe that helps? I dunno.
I've gotten TRU orders with stickers on them (not that I cared), and same with Target.
Wal-mart I usually do ship to store and never had a problem, but they rarely have anything to order anyway. K-Mart, on rare occassion I order anything, has always shipped really first class packing. Go figure right?
Amazon though, not always packed with a lot of padding but I never even got a crease on a card.
