well this time it actually worked out better
since that 40% off was for only 1 item...
and 1 tie would have been less than $50 so no free shipping...
right now the silk/wool ties are on sale (4 out of 6 colors)
for $35 each
so grabbed two ties for free shipping
if i had gotten 40% off 1 but another 1 at full price... the total would have been higher than buying the 2 ties at $35 each
