NB did dump flat rate, but on the good side, they also don't have an exclusive shipping contract that locks them into fed-ex.
Dry yeast went from 3.50 to 3.25
rahr 2-row dropped about 10 cents
a carboy cost $12 to ship UPS
a carboy and 12-15lbs of general stuff costs $16 ups
NB is still in the game, not the best but better than midwest, not as good as Williams(similar select-item flat rate program as NB's old system), lagging way behind AHS
morebeer is still select-item free shipping over $49 or$59 but not the great selection
