Monthly codes can be funky when looking at those posted on the sheet. If any confusion, you just call. They almost always go out of their way to make it right.

Agreed. Hell, give me some Protek stickers instead or some free heat shrink tubing lol.

Other than that, everything has always been done in a timely matter.

I've had good experience with Amain, although I usually buy from my local shop.

I just placed an order for some TC6.2 parts that qualified for the $1.99 shipping, but when I did the checkout I was charged $2.29 for some reason. What happened?

I believe the $1.99 shipping is for domestic shipping only.

I have been getting the $1.99 USPS First-Class Mail International shipping charge from as far back as 2014 so that statement doesn't hold true.

I would not turn down a packet of yeast so I can just make my own wine.

APC shipping is the best I've ever experienced. For two dollars you get tracking, week or less delivery time plus here in Finland they are delivered to my door!

Ok so id like to share this and i hope it reaches a ton of people. I am always looking for a good deal. I already ordered a yz4 (from amain) and when I woke up this morning... looky looky they have yz2's marked way down too! Long story short i had some trouble ordering online so I called the 800 number. I spoke with a great guy named James. He got me all straightened out and totally hooked me up! I even got some extra wheels to go with it. Thank you so much amain!!

Dealt with Shane tonight, had a part I ordered be defective. Guy went above and beyond for me and was a pleasure to deal with. Unparalleled customer service. Amain will absolutely be my source for everything RC from now on.
