I too have been using the STSI website a long time. My first website auto order was on 3-24-12.
I made no adjustment in my ordering pattern when the tablet count was changed to 300 from 200. ( Some people did but I didn't.)
If my memory is serving me correct, the purpose of increasing the tablet count to 300 vs. 200 was to allow for the recommended daily dosage increase. My monthly recommended dosage level now is 10 tablets per day for my weight. On the 200 count bottles, I believe the recommended daily usage for me was 6 or 7 tablets per day.
I also seem to remember that the dosage level adjustments resulted from the Co.'s work in/with the Flint studies.
Now, as to 300 ct availability. Yes, began to FIRST show up week 3 Jan on web site. Was MID FEB before there was much report of availability in GNC stores, and my son (Dallas at the time) was STILL refusing 200 ct bottles in GNC stores there in mid April (as they tried to sell out their old stock first, something I think they should not have been allowed to do for full price).
I THINK THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT THAT MARCH 1 OR SO IS AN EXCELLENT MID POINT on which to balance, as "the beginning", the rollout of the 300ct bottles. YOUR version, tivomoron, IS PURE FICTION.
Don't you wish that anything you said here made an iota of difference? Don't you wish that, by constantly completely ignoring the overall long term business plan for the supplements, you could get people to do anything but look down on you?
Your wishes and needs show so plainly in your desperate posts (with desperate "sentiment"). Never occurs to you how those facts alert people to suspect your motives? STILL? Guess not : )
