What's ironic is that NB ended their flat rate shipping, explaining that they did it because they were just building the shipping price into their product prices. Now, they've done exactly the opposite. When they did this deal in October, the price was $35 for two 6 gallon Better Bottles shipped to my house. Now it's $42. This is still a decent deal, but it's off-putting to see shipping prices magically double in the last 3 months.

I'm quite certain that nobody complaining about it is shopping there. And by now if there's a thread about Northern Brewer, invariably the topic of the inflated prices and outrageous shipping comes up. So you might want to avoid any NB threads because this is the outcome.

Anybody else order at this time? It's been a while and my order is still "pending fulfillment." I imagine there was a large amount of orders, but this seems unreasonable.

I jumped on this deal, and I received mine within 5-6 days (including the weekend). Shipping to MS wasn't that bad, although, I don't remember the exact price.
