Here is the exchange with the live chat help:

Chat helper:  Thank you for contacting CoffeeForLess Live Chat. My name is
XXX. How may I help you today?

 Me:  I just signed up for email alerts because the offer said I
would get $5 off my order and free shipping. Now it says I must spend $45. I am
.03 away - really? Can you help?

 Chat Helper: I'll be glad to help.
Yes that is correct. The order should be at least $45.

 Me:  So - even though the "ad" that popped up to get me
to sign up was not clear - your company will do nothing about bypassing the
$.03 that I am missing to get the $5 off and the free shipping?

 Chat helper:  You can add an item to reach the minimum amount to avail the
discount and get the free shipping.

Me:  So - your answer is no. I'll be sure this is reported on the
web and I will have to order from another company.

 Chat helper:  We apologize for the confusion.

 Me: For $.03 you lost a customer and
gained a negative review on line. Says a lot about Coffee for less.
