Purchasing Flameout In Australia?

Decided to get some Flameout and just went to:

http://www.biotestaustralia.com/

and the bulk pack cost is:
3 x Flameout, 90 capsules 1 AUD $194.85

That is bloody expensive! Other Aussie sites have 1 bottle for AUD$90!

The cost on this site is USD $26.99 per bottle or USD $80.97 for 3 which would be about AUD$90.

Does this site post to Australia?
What’s the postage for say 3 bottles of Flameout?
For 6 bottles?

I’ll get it from here if the product+postage comes out cheaper.

Where do other Aussies get their Biotest supps from?

Anyone?

Do a mockup order to see the shipping charges, I’m sure they do post to Australia.

Yes, they do - that’s why im level 2 =)
Got an order of some Metabolic Drive a while back and it was most definitely worth it.

See if any of your mates want some stuff - shipping is exorbitant for the first lb or two, then lowers dramatically, so the more you order the more it all gets shared around.

I just ordered 6 bottles.

With postage it came out to AUD$39 per bottle which is pretty good.

Shitty supermarket fish oil is about AUD$25 for a 90 tab bottle so I’m very pleased with the value of this site!

That sounds a lot better. the other price was crazy.

With the current strength of the Aussie Dollar it is definitely cheaper to order from this site. Even when the dollar was a lot lower it was still cheaper as long as you ordered enough to reduce the impact of postage. Just remember not to order anything that is banned in Australia (Spike and HOT-ROX Extreme)

Yep, just fish oil - should be no problems.

Hi Spry,

How did you go with getting the fish oil in? No problems from customs? Wanting to order some with the 2 for 1 deal but thought I should check it gets in ok.

Those bastards took my TRIBEX a while back! No problems with Metabolic Drive, Surge, BCAA’s, ZMA, or Spike though.

I had no problem buying USPLabs products - got orders of P-Slin and Anabolic Pump for a quarter of the price through a buy 3 get 1 free deal - shipping was only 20 bucks too

Especially cheaper once you work it all out to combined EPA/DHA and compare to the regular 30% conc stuff.

I havnt ordered mine yet (im broke). =(

I’ve had only 1 problem ordering from the US - Customs held my Flameout for a couple of weeks because they say it had no paperwork or something. They rang me and I directed the guy to the website whilst he was on the phone. He was interested in buying some for himself too.

It was delivered a week or so later.

I order as much as I can to spread the shipping costs and yes, the Aus site is EXTREMELY expensive - a complete rip off!

I’ve also ordered HOT-ROX Extreme, Spike, etc etc - all without incident and every package has been inspected by customs (opened).

Just waiting on my latest shipment of Superfood which was meant to come with my Flameout order - but I got screwed over and it was shipped seperately.

I had no problems. I had 6 bottles come through 6 weeks ago.

Oh and it was a lot cheaper to but from T-Nation.

And with the Aussie dollar worth about US$0.95 now it will be even better!

Yea this stuff is so freakin cheap. I’m about to place my first order, but I couldn’t believe the aussie suppliers charge around 300% more than what they are listed on here. Sorry but I’m not paying $90 for 1kg of protein no matter how good it is.

I’ve been getting alot of my stuff at wholesale price through my mum, but stumbled on this site a few weeks ago and couldn’t believe how cheap it was.

Remember hearing about savings getting passed on to consumers with the better exchange rate…fat fucking chance.

The other thing to note is: when ordering from Australian Biotest, it has no effect on your buyers level with T-Nation.
You have to use the US site to raise your level.
May be of no consequence but if I spend $1,000 on supps, it might as well show somewhere.

My level never updated after my order.

Like I give a shit if people know that I bought some stuff from someone?

Too each their own I suppose.

Bottom line. This site is good value. Just put a decent size order in to save on shipping costs.

For reference my order came to AUD$39 per bottle of Flameout (exchange rate of around $0.80 - its now $0.95).

Its AUD$64.95 from the Aussie Biotest site right now if you buy in the same quantities…

I am looking at ordering some Alpha Male, HOT-ROX Extreme, Flameout, Superfood and Metabolic Drive. was just wondering how it goes coming through customs in australia.

I don’t know if Aussie Biotest is even owned by Biotest. There are actually a couple of different Aussie Biotest websites (at least 2 I have seen). I think they are just some company that orders in from Biotest and pumps up the price because they know some people will pay it.

Also you can’t legall get HOT-ROX Extreme in Australia. The former non-extreme version was legal, but it sold for some rediculous price at most supp stores
