Default Found cheap Better Bottles

I don't know who may be interested, but I found really cheap better bottles
(I love them, everyone may not)
5 Gallon 14.29
6 Gallon 16.79
they have ported and all the attachments and other pieces you may want. they don't do free shipping and I emailed them to see what shipping prices may be. the thing is they have a note above the product list that the company they buy from ships to them very slow and in return you may get your order pretty late. but at these prices I wouldn't mind if it took 3-4 weeks, as long as shipping is reasonable. the company is www.leisure-time.com. let me know if anyone has used them before. thanks

I think that is in the top 10 worst websites I've ever seen.

Thanks for the info and link.

yeah, I thought so too. that's why I was asking if any one has used them. I hadn't heard back on the shipping yet.

Wow, it's rarely that I say anything like this, but their website is bad enough that I would be very hesitant to order from them, especially because of how low their price on them is.

I would expect either their shipping to be almost as much as the bottle, OR perhaps an indefinite ship date. It just sets off HUGE warning bells to me - and I've been eyeing B-B's for some time now!

Edit: The part that REALLY worries me is "Last edited: October 24, 2006"

Edit x2: Look at their Hop prices! Can't be serious! http://www.leisure-time.com/ahpp.htm

Well, perhaps they keep their prices low by not spending money on good web design? For what it is worth that price is only a little above what my LHBS would pay from a third party wholesaler (so from High-Q, Inc. to wholesaler to LHBS) so if he is getting a good deal direct from High-Q, Inc. and not doing a full markup that would explain the low price.

If you end up ordering from them let us know how the transaction goes.

I like their shipping information.

We ship only to locations within the United States. Rare exceptions may be made to this rule BUT, payment must be wired to our bank in advance. In addition, extra charges will be incurred based on how much paperwork is required. Also, foreign shipments will be shipped by UPS only unless you arrange your own shipper to pick up product at our dock. We are a UPS shipper. E-mail for more details.

Uh, what?

I ordered some kits and equipment from them back in June. Shipping was pretty reasonable, but did take a LONG time. It's definitely a small operation, I'm guessing just one guy.
