ADA Amazonia 9L Online

Anyone know where to buy ADA Amazonia online for a decent price (< $40 per 9L bag)?

Most places I've found charge a lot more.

The stores around here do not have any in stock until the end of the month.

Thanks!

I've never seen it anywhere cheaper from an online store.

The extra $7.95 from adgshop.com is stopping you?

Their shipping puts it at the same price as adgshop.com, who has it in stock.

Oh man I had no idea the shipping from AFA was so high! (I usually just go to the store )

Guess I'll just work on an emersed setup for my plants while I wait for them to get stock. An extra $17 a bag is a lot, that's another small bag :P

Thanks for the replies.

Since the shipping is based on weight, you can't really beat the prices any of the retailers have.

If you're in CA or on the west coast, AFA is obviously going to be cheaper. Though, in some weird fluke, AFA is cheaper for me in Kentucky than ADG - which is way closer. Think it's because ADG weirdly builds shipping into the price, which ends up costing more.

If you go to AFA, a 9L bag will cost ~$41 total. If you buy from AFA's website, total shipping cost is ~$42.

If you want to drop in, make a call to them. They were out of stock of Amazonia online, I called them and they had three 9L bags in store.

When I checked for MN when both had it in stock, price was within a penny if I recall correctly. Go figure.

$47.95 but that includes shipping. The $30 AFA price does not so the cheaper would depend on destination. Amazonia is out of stock at AFA but I checked shipping on another 9l bag and the total would have been $53 to NJ.

OP where do you live in Cali? Just FYI $30 at AFA is only online price. I took a trip to AFA From Los Angeles and found out the price is $42 from the shelf. The owner said they put $30 online to encourage online buyers.
