solgar sub~linguals update

Hi everyone. Re recent concerns about sourcing & escalating cost of Solgar Meth 5000mcg sub~lingual tablets. Someone (sorry cant remember who) said they had ordered 2X60 tablet bottles for £26 via Amazon (as opposed average £19 + per bottle).

I found the company, based in USA, 'Green Spot Vitamins' but was wary as someone else mentioned being stung with import charges.

Anyway, I ordered two bottles on September 6th..£26.95+ FREE delivery! Estimated date of arrival October 6th.

They arrived TODAY, handed over by my friendly postie..no mention of extra cost. They were safely packed, look the real thing, bottles, labels & well within date 12/2018 .

Both on these bottles & the current bottle I'm using (bought in UK) it states the tablets are manufactured 'carefully' in Leonia New Jersey.Don't know why but I always thought Solgar was a German company (prob because most everything else we need comes from there?).Maybe that's why they were much cheaper, not sure?

Hope this helps anyone worrying about ordering sub~linguals (i.e most of us most of the time!)

    It's luck of the draw whether or not goods costing £15+ are assessed for 20% VAT. If you order goods <£15 VAT isn't levied.

  • I ordered from the 2 x60 for £26 with free delivery off Amazon from an American company (can't remember which now) I had a royal mail card for an international parcel waiting for me when I got home today so I guess that'll be the solgar (fingers crossed) No mention of charges on the card either so quick delivery and no duty. BONUS 😊

  • It is the luck of the draw whether you get landed with customs charges or not when getting a US delivery. I have been stung and it adds a postal admin fee as well as custom so that can make it very expensive. Wish I'd bought more solgar when they were 2 for £20 a few months ago!

  • Have thrown the envelope away but there was a declaration form on the front that Green Spot Vitamins had filled in..don't know if that's the difference in being charged or not? i.e what they declare as the contents/value. Hope you slip through the net Singoutloud! (am sure its the same company as I went through Amazon & saw no other 2 bottle offers)
