I know they used to ship some funky looking five bottle arrangements before... I got one. It was the standard four pack with a single sleeve taped heavily to the outside... it worked, i don't know how but it worked...

Everything's normal.
I think they do it like that only for practical packaging reasons.

I did make the order through SC.
I order Four Dive and 2 Serpis.
Will be ordering other next month.

They arrived in two packages.
The Deva arrived in one package and the Serpis arrived in another.

I placed the order online all at the same time.
It is my belief that SC seperated them before shipping. Then they took the to the Post.
How marvelous.

Six bottle shipment from where? I'm assuming you mean SC. But I just had a long discussion with Cristina over there about large orders. She said bottles have to be shipped in 4 bottle packages. If from SC how did you make your order?

Mr.Doo,

Where is this money tree that you obviously have found. Tell us, I say!

Damn, are you filling your bunker in case of a nuclear attack ? ;-)

So I know everyone seems to say that 5 bottles is the limit...

But we have seen constantly that they ship orders of 3 or more in separate packages.

So if you were to say order 20, wouldn't they just ship them in 8 different packages??

I think someone did the price breakdown on ordering a bunch of Deva's and it came out to basically the same price per bottle when you get over 5 bottles...something like 28.40 per bottle versus 29.30 per bottle. Not a huge difference that matters too much in the long run.

I will probably just make a few orders of 5 bottles once a week so it won't draw attention
