Poll: More Price Drops?


#1

Quick summary: It's impossible to sell a super high quality protein supplement or post-workout drink and still make a profit without 1) taking out the expensive, high end ingredients, 2) charging a lot for it or 3) dropping the middleman and selling it directly.

Biotest chose #3, sell Grow! and Surge only through this site. Sales are through the roof so that seems to be working. (Thanks!)

Poll: Would you buy directly from T-mag if we did that with a few other supps? Examples:

Power Drive: $17 instead of $40
M: $17 instead of $40
ZMA: $9 instead of $25

If the answer is yes, then these items can be pulled from the middlemen and sold directly through this site at prices cheaper than the cheapest online discounter - plus it would be the freshest stuff with the latest formula improvements and you'd get free overnight shipping on larger orders.

Poll II: Would you be interested in supercharged versions and exclusive blends of favorite Biotest goodies?

Example: A jacked up version of HOT-ROX with as much active ingredient as can be crammed in there, then packed into the same liquid nano-dispersion capsules used in MAG-10? (Which would mean it would be almost scary at burning fat.)

Or how about we take that nano-dispersion technology and do a maxed-out blend of Tribex and Red Kat in one capsule and pack as many of the caps as possible into a 250cc bottle?

The price would be $100 if we use a middleman (GNC, online retailers etc), but if we sell them only at T-mag? 49 bucks everyday.

What do you think? Would you buy the Power Drive and other supps at a direct sales price? Would you be interested in the special blends and jacked up formulations?


#2

Oh hell yeah.

(That was my unemotional response.)


#3

I'm definetly for it!
Hopefully i'm gonna make a trip to new york in summer, so I can pack on the supplements.I live in germany, the customs won?t let anything be sent to me.


#4

yes, yes, yes....and yes.


#5

Oh yeah! My only prob is the shipping to Canada. I don't mind waiting a few days if I can save on freight.

#6

Yes to everything. The price drop would be great, and the super charged formulas even better.


#7

im only interested in grow/surge/powerdrive.. so if powerdrive went down i probably would buy it a little more often. but i definitly am buying grow/surge from you guys every time with those prices(& quality!)

peace


#8

1) Yes drop the ZMA and Power drive prices and i will be buying all my supps besides mutlis and the occasional creatine from you guys. Not because i care for you or anything, its just because you made it so affordable not taking advantage of the offer would be like missing a workout.

2) Hell Yeah, please super charge the surge.


#9

Personally, I'd have to say yes. And here's why:

I live in Iceland (you know, tiny island in the atlantic..) and out here, supplements cost a lot. And by ordering from uk/usa I usually end up paying more for those with import taxes and more then I do here.

But not any more...with the new price cut on grow and surge, I can order those and have them sent to me and pay the import fees and they still cost less then with a local retailer, not to mention the vast quality difference!

So a similar price cut on other biotest products has the effect of putting them in competition with the locals.


#10

I'm down for ordering direct at those prices and I'd also like to see the jacked up supplements.


#11

I am all for it, my only concern is the shipping to Canada too. I also would not mind waiting a few more days if it meant a cut in shipping rates.


#12

Definatly intrested. I am getting ready to put together an order of grow and surge but will wait for this so I can order more and save the shipping. Keep this up and you guys will make GNC obselete.


#13

I
probably

II
hell yes


#14

ZMA $9? Yes!

Power Drive $17 YES!

Super Sup Hot Rox? As long as I don't get any wrong side effects just as I'm not getting and side effects from it now.

Tribex? I have done two months of full dosage 5 on two off of it and hasn't given me the "benefits" that a low T-Level person is supposed to experience. So I guess I have high T-Levels at 28.


#15

I just got a hard on and Im not even on any supplements right now.


#16

Who wouldn't want cheaper prices and jacked up products :stuck_out_tongue: Hell it's even cheaper than the on-line guys now.

Oh and bring back Mag-10 for one more cycle pleeeeeaaaaaaasssssssssseeeeeeee

I was on a couple 24 hour shifts and missed the mega bottle :frowning:
But you guys kick ass either way :slight_smile:

#17

f$ck the middleman....im gonna be poor this summer haha..go for it


#18

That's definatly a HELL YES on everything from me and the rest of the Devildogs that I place bulk orders for. We've already dropped the cheap whey we used and now use Grow and Surge exclusively all the time instead of rationing it. Supercharged HOT-ROX, HOLY BATSHIT, is that even posssible?


#19

Unquestionably yes. I'd have to rent a storage space for all the stuff I would buy.


#20

No... please don't do this to me!!

Just kidding. Hell yes. Middlemen suck--- good supps for less is awesome.

As for the supercharged supplements: that sounds pretty damn good, too.
