Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based JDS Industries, a supplier of components to the awards, gifts and promotion and sublimation markets, announces its “$500 Free Freight special,” offering customers in the 48 contiguous U.S. states free shipping on orders over $500.
The company had started the program in September as a holiday promotion.
“We wanted to give everybody a little something extra when money is tight around the holidays and help them out so that they could help their own customers out,” says marketing specialist Brenna Walsh. “We had such great results that we basically just decided to keep it through the whole year of 2017.”
She says it’s an incentive for customers to not only buy more product to save on shipping, but also make sure they’re well-stocked. The offer includes most JDS products, including trophy marble, but does not extend to some heat presses, heat press-related accessories, sandcarving equipment and some sandcarving supplies.
“Mainly anything we have to drop ship is not qualified for free freight,” Walsh says.
The offer is good only on published prices, and special quotes do not qualify for free freight unless otherwise noted. Customers outside the 48 contiguous states receive a 5 percent discount in lieu of free freight or free freight to their forwarder if within the 48 states.
