Gateway: Free Shipping! With A $20 Handling Fee!

Reader Holland asks:

Gateway is advertising “free shipping,” but you have to pay a $20 “handling charge.” At least they’re upfront that the free shipping isn’t really free, but how can they get away with calling it free when it still costs $20?

Well, Holland, we guess they were just hoping that their potential customers weren’t too bright. Ya know?
