It's sad how much the prices went up on shipping...I used to order 9L bags of AS with around $10 shipping parcel post from adgshop(I don't mind waiting longer if it's cheaper)

Yeah, when I order stuff I shop around looking for who has best price + shipping. Most places don't offer Priority Mail or Parcel Post, they either overcharge for UPS/FedEx ground or force you to use 2nd day or Next day.

funny, i recently tried buying a 5# aluminum co2 tank from amazon and all attempts were rejected/cancelled because they don't ship to hawaii or they need special pricing. one of the vendors sent an email apologizing and i bitched about the shipping issue. he offered to ship parcel post and just gave me an additional invoice for the difference in shipping from their flat rate ground. i agreed and it should be on it's way here.

we should all start complaining about this to the better business bureau. but then again, i don't know how to go about it. try finding out if they'll go out of their way to ship in a different method. i know some of them are not flexible with it (too lazy to run to the post office, extra work etc)

Another funny thing is that a bunch of vendors are exactly like you say, but amazon.com themselves shipped me my computer case for free (Free Super Saver Shipping) and it got here in less than a week! I think places that ship alot prolly get discounts from the shipping companies, or they ask for discounts, and the others just pass the ridiculous shipping charges on to their customers or refuse to ship outside the continental US.

You should've bought a 2.5lb tank instead because I got mine shipped for around $10 i think
