    You can get it off Amazon.com for like $57-$61 shipped. That's the cheapest I've found it for anways.

    Plus, if you sign up for their credit card they knock $30 off your initial purchase.

    prices of milk and fuel have gone up. You will likely see also increase in shipping costs from most companies as flat rate, for those that use it, starts to really impact their bottom line.

    Pay it off? Unless you have 11ty open lines of credit I don't think it detracts at all.

    get used to it. The price of milk & beef will be going up for a while.

    With ethanol demand up, corn prices having been going up, which means higher costs to raise cows, which gets passed on to us.

    have you shipped anything priority mail lately? the price increase has been staggering. all shipping companies have raised their rates, though percentwise usps seems the highest. think that more and more companies will be moving to the private carriers for shipping, usps is just not the deal it once was for small items-

    note- this is not particularly relevant to the protein shipping, because of weight (at least the previously cheap priority mail avenue). just thought it was relevant.

    shipping costs will likely results in across the board increases in online retail pricing and shipping.

    Ours finally started reflecting as well. I think you'll find a few companies trying to absorb it, but it's going to be hard since it was such a large increase.
