Gift for Geeks more expensive second-class

Hello all. I was just on Gift for Geeks ordering a replacement for my Grey Knights codex that I accidentally spilled some coke on () and I figured that since I'm not too fussed about how soon it gets here, I'll grab it second-class. It came to 16.80 and so out of curiousity I decided to see how much it would cost first class, just to see how close to the GW store price it worked out at.

Surprisingly it came to 16.40, which makes no sense whatsoever as far as I can see, as first class post, is as you'd imagine, a little more expensive. So if you've been tempted to save money on your Gift for Geeks orders by going second-class, don't. It costs more ().

I don't order from GfG anyway, so yeah - I've never been tempted. .

Although that does seem rather stupid.

I believe it is due to them using Parcel Force or Royal Mail depending on which speed you choose: as Royal Mail use size as well as weight to determine costs a single light item often has a different price depending on its dimensions.
