Thanks Biotest!!

Just got my recent order in and to my pleasant surprise, I got a Metabolic Drive water bottle.

Thanks a lot for the complimentary bottle!

Btw, are these available for purchase? Because if they are, I’d love to buy some more.

Thanks.

Water bottles? I don’t believe it!

I got a free Metabolic Drive protein bar with my order, and i loved it, thanks also.

How come they never throw anything free in with my orders?

Do only new customers get freebies?

I get freebies all the time. One time they sent me a free set of keys to a brand new Viper. I hadn’t even ordered anything!

Most of the time, my freebies come with a note that says “Don’t tell that bastard Nate about this… what an asshole.”

But I feel good about telling you about it now.

I was new once; didn’t get anything then, either. Maybe they’re trying to get makers of small orders hooked. Maybe there’s just one rogue packer who’s trying to destroy the company from within by bleeding away their inventory? This could be a subtle plot to bring Biotest down from within.

I’d hate to see that, so I’m offering to start the investigation for them. I’ll start collecting the evidence of a saboteur at the warehouse; people receiving supposed “freebies” should send them to me for processing.

I’ll figure out the pattern and then work up a profile of the “mole.” I swear I’ll get to the bottom of this, if it takes years!

Those bastards. They told me I was the only one!

On the upside they actually send me Nate’s stuff, you should see the shit that guy was supposed to get!

Nah. I got a Spike Shooter – though I had noted that they were giving them out at the Olympia and should throw the regulars a bone, so maybe someone in customer service saw that. :wink:

Also got a mini bottle of HOT-ROX. Basically, a small HRX bottle with 4 caps in it.

I’d like a shaker bottle with my next order, please. :wink:

Was it a water bottle or shaker bottle? We’ve been bitching for years about the unavailability of nifty Biotest/T-Nation shaker bottles. Maybe someone listened?

Ok I just got my order for the Velocity Diet, 10 Metabolic Drive and a bottle of HRX…much to my dismay, no freebies…

I’d kill for a Biotest water bottle or shaker…hint hint…

I got a Metabolic Drive water bottle with my last purchase also. At first I thought it was shaker, and was happy. But then I got it out of the box and felt so depressed.

Is it like the Nalgene that they gave away a while back? Or just a straight up water bottle?

WTF is a water bottle? Seriously, I am not able to picture this. Post a link to Flickr or something.

yeah i’ve ordered 3x now, and i only got it my first ordered, so i figured it was a 1 time thing

It’s probably a Nalgene. I won a HOT-ROX water bottle in a contest years back and it was a Nalgene.

Picture a 20oz bottle with a pull-top lid (the kind where you pull with your teeth).

It’s not quite a shaker, as there is not much room/volume for shaking after its full or liquid and powder. However, I did blend up some Surge, then put it in the bottle and that worked fine.

Yes, I agree with above posts that Biotest and/or T-Nation need to produce a shaker. Until then, these durable water-bottles are pretty cool and I’d buy one at a reasonable price.

As far as the free stuff, I’m not a newbie, I’ve been ordering on a consistent basis for about 3 years and this is my first freebie. But, I do recall my brother, who orders much less frequently than myself, receiving a mini-HOT-ROX freebie a year ago. So, I guess it’s just a lottery. Who knows.

How cool would it be if Biotest made there own branded Nalgene’s available in Red with a yellow lid. Those would fly off the shelves, I would also be the envy of all my fellow gym members when I roll in with one filled with iceblocks and Surge :slight_smile:

SHadoW

What is a Nalgene?

I Googled it and found that Nalgene makes a variety of bottles, so which one is everybody referring to when they just say “Nalgene?”

The Metabolic Drive bottle looks similar to this:
