Me again.

I went back to the Meluna shop and, in case this is not common knowledge here, their prices are phenomenal in comparison to what I paid on amazon.com, because shipping to a non-EU address automatically takes off the 19% sales tax Germans have to pay (all prices you see on the site are including the sales tax) during the check-out process.
I had no idea until I actually started the check-out process! And I only did it to see how much shipping would be on a special offer. Ha!

Needless to say, I wanted to see how much I can add to my cart without raising the shipping, and for 6 cups, shipping was still only EURO 5,71.
Their starter sets are EURO 17.65 the equivalent of $23 for two cups at today's rate, the single cups EURO 11.77 or $15. To put it all in perspective, I paid $27 with free shipping on amazon for the one I bought here!

I kind of went overboard once I did the math, but now I am hopeful some of those will work for my purposes, and some may be great back-ups.

Just thought I'd share this with you, as I see there are some ordering coops for this. Not sure if the price is better with volume purchasing?
This may be interesting for complete noobs like myself, who are still trying to figure out sizing. I am so excited!!

Also, they have more special offers than the other sites I have seen!! I bought two of their SOs.

It used to be that you had to send them an e-mail before checking out so they'd set your account tax-free... Good thing that they've improved that. Meluna has always been one of the cheapest brands, and they do have a lot of variety to choose from.

My beef with their special offers is that they NEVER include soft cups, which are my favorite. And WTF? they've really gone crazy with their size recommendation, so now if you're overweight that means you need a bigger cup ? PLEASE. It's also a big mistake to suggest all virgins need tiny short cups and that your vag WILL grow over time. Good luck fishing for your Mini Meluna if you happen to have a high cervix. But that has to do with the way Meluna cups are designed, i.e., every size up is both wider and longer than the next, can't blame them for trying to push their products.

I like that they offer tiny cups and choices in stiffness and stems, which makes them quite unique, but totally agree that it would be great if they offered various depths at the same widths.

I think you mean...
"Meluna EU shop super cheap if you're not in the EU!!"

;-)

Fleurcups are pretty cheap, too. They seem to have special offers all the time lately, and the flat rate shipping is great.

Good point! I changed the title.

Very considerate :-)
I was mostly joking, but it's still more accurate this way.

Yeah, I know ;) ...., but then I realized that there are EU users on here!

they are between $10 and $11 before shipping depending on how many you order for coop accounts.

Thanks. So they are a bit cheaper through coop after shipping, unless you go overboard and buy way too many, like I did. EURO 6 for shipping on one cup hurts a lot more than for six cups. :)

If you buy 10 you get a volume discount of 20% off. But you don't get the discount on their sets. Also have to get them to set you up for bulk discounts.

Not bad! That's almost 40% savings over their regular price for EU buyers. Too bad, I ordered 6, and was contemplating 3 more, but decided to wait and give the first ones a try... 4 more would have made me my own co-op.
Oh well.
