If you can do that I would appreciate it.

I will look into it. The shipping being more than the item just seems wrong to me.

I am going to skip the Amazon offer because I have no way to test the components before assembly. I have to ensure the parts are original even if I pay inflated prices. It just bugs me that shipping and handling for a pair of opamps costs as much as the opamps. I could only imagine how upsetting it would be if I were ordering 5520's or something cheap and were charged 4-8x the price on shipping and handling.

When you make parts by the millions, and stock them in boxes of a thousand, there really is not much material or labor involved.

When you ask a messenger to bring it to your door/box, that really can be more fuel and labor than getting a chip to a distributor.

(When you order from China with "free shipping", you are really making the US Post Office make the trip for free. Old postal agreements between major countries required the destination country to carry for free, because in 2-way postal exchange it always balanced-out. Another agreement from before China was a major export economy assigned the postal cost to the larger economy, the US. Since we no longer send orders by postal mail, the US gets no balancing postal fee.)
