I wasn't being facetious. I actually did buy 2 saturn hats, 1 roll up blanket, 2 t shirts, 1 rolling cooler, 2 window shades, set of 4 glasses, a bear with a Saturn shirt, and several other items.

Not really going to have a chance to buy any of this ever again or get any stuff thrown in by buying a new Saturn car.

The site link has already crashed too and returns an error.

Hey, $10 for a nice polo shirt is a great deal, official Saturn product or not. Hard to pass that up!

Yep. I've sort of always wanted a Saturn hat, the sun shades, I just broke my small cooler and needed another one and $5 Tshirts are a good deal.

Was surprised they didn't have key chains and some other items, but I did get quite a few things already.

Ordered on 10/7, arrived today. Really hits home that it's over.

The Akwa dress shirt is fairly lightweight, I'd say summer wear. No logo on the front, subtle "SATURN" non-contrast stitch under the collar on the rear.

The golf polo is a good grade. Runs slightly smaller than department store sizes, so it fits me perfectly.

The Astra t-shirt is quite a beautiful work of art. I should have ordered another... still might.

The mugs are shallow, but fit my hand well. Very flat bottomed, but I don't see the emblem lasting 30 cycles in a dishwasher.

The calculator biz card case is double the thickness of most biz card holders. I may try to pick up the stainless steel one from my Saturn dealer this weekend.

Thanks Charlie! I was going to pick up a few things from the local Saturn dealer before then "convert" at the end of the year, but these prices are just too good not to take a chance on.

Figured it was too good to be true. Just got this email from their accounting department. My shipping charges have now more than tripled! Order canceled.

Dear xxxxx,

Thank you for your order at the Saturn Collection online store. Due to a continually changing customs environment, we ask that you assume responsibility for all customs related charges (taxes, duties, tariffs, etc.).

We will need to adjust your initial shipping charge in accordance with FedEx/UPS International rates which for this package will be an additional $18.78 USD. We must have written confirmation of acceptance of these charges. We will be unable to process refunds or exchanges at our expense.

Taxes, duties and tariffs will be due as a separate fee once your order enters your country and are not part of this shipping quote.

To confirm acceptance of these charges or should you have any questions, please reply to this e-mail and they will be answered as soon as possible.

If we do not hear from you in five business days, the order will be cancelled and your credit card credited.

Regards,

Liz Castro

$20 for shipping? They must be nuts.

My order arrived as expected with the original shipping charges. I did not get the notice of changed shipping charges and if I did, I'd cancel the order as well.

No surprises here. In the US international shipping fees are usually much higher than domestic shipping fees.

Just ordered a backpack, T-Shirt, and two hats (one for me and one for my Saturn loving friend.)

Great deal going on, and a great way to show your support for Saturn, even though they're going away.
