May 6 Updates:

  • All orders now shipping within 1 day.
  • Our customer service team is about 2 days behind on emails and are doing their best to catch up (all are doing overtime and we have just hired more people too).
  • Thank you EVERYONE for your patience and overwhelming support while we have been scrambling to get these orders out.

Deal Notes:

In case you're unfamiliar with Amino Z, we're a supplement manufacturer/retailer. And now we're making hand sanitiser in our facility (who'd have guessed). All the obvious reasons why with the gyms being closed.

We are again doing this completely in-house. There's no importing of product and everything is local (ingredients, labour and packaging). Frankly we're just making basic, no-frills hand sanitiser. This is the TGA COVID-19 formulation.

Here's the rundown:

  • It's in an ugly plastic jerry container (We found these after literally days of hunting down containers)
  • I personally created the sticker in Photoshop (Hence why no-frills as this represents the extent of my graphics design skills. As a side note, I am still very jealous of the artwork skills of some of the distilleries.)
  • It's 80% ethyl alcohol (ethanol) with distilled water and propylene glycol (1.45% v/v) and hydrogen peroxide (0.125% v/v). This has been updated as per the TGA guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic here. This is a slightly viscous liquid formula and is not a gel.
  • It's 100% Australian: We make it in Sydney. Ingredients are all Australian sourced. The bottles are manufactured in Victoria. The labels are printed in Queensland.

The deal is $19.95 each (that's for 1 Litre). Order 4 or more and get free shipping, otherwise shipping is $9.99 Australia Wide (or you can pickup for free).

Plus you'll get $5 back as store-credit per unit. It will be credited to your email once the order ships out and can be used as a discount on any future purchase. Perhaps some added motivation to get back to the gym when they reopen? :)

Orders will now ship within 1 day.

As compared to when we initially launched the deal on April 14th, our cost prices have gone up as I've had to scramble to find more ingredients. However since there will be a slightly longer lead time than last time, I figure it's only fair to keep the deal identical. Plus the previous experience was terrible for some people who spent hours trying to purchase, I cannot in good faith increase this price for all of those who missed out. Instead the only change is that we're accepting credit card (MC/VISA/AMEX) payment directly (using eWay) as to avoid the higher fees of other payment processors (ie. cut out the middle man so we can still make this feasible).

I am aware there have been a number of hand sanitiser deals on Ozbargain lately. I'm hoping that this represents good value given the costs of the components we had to source. Happy to answer any questions!

  • Can I not pay by paypal anymore?

    • You can now if you prefer, go to this link and apply code OZBARGAIN-AHS in your cart. Same deal. The link we updated above was just to make the whole process easier considering the problems so many people had with our servers overloading when we launched the deal.

      • Thanks! ordered placed for 2 1L

        • Great thanks for the order!

    Received dispatch notification and was sooooo happy until i saw "shipped via FASTWAY". Hope they truly live upto their company's name instead of their reputation….
    I am not going to chase them to their warehouse if they leave any "missed you" cards in this lockdown period.

    • If you run into any issues please let us know ASAP desparito and we'll sort it out from our end. I believe all deliveries are left if no one is home at this time (both Australia Post and Fastway have changed their policies to no signature recently).

      • Jay
      • What are the pro/con of using either AP or Fastway? I'm assuming FW must be cheaper or more convenient for the business/seller, as every end-user experience i hear about (including my own) is that FW is a complete piece of ****. Now my fingers are crossed that my order is in the AP lot!

        • Australia Post can be slower than Fastway by 1-2 days typically (under normal circumstances), particularly to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and other key area's on the Eastern side. Costs do vary, but it depends upon destination - Australia Post can be cheaper for some areas whereas Fastway is cheaper to other areas. Australia Post only delivers to PO Boxes/Locked bags/parcel lockers etc.

          We use both carriers, and well over 99% of our orders are delivered on-time via both carriers. To be completely transparent, we do of course run into issues with both carriers unfortunately. However we're more than happy to step in and take a hit when this occurs (eg. send another parcel, chase them up for you etc).

            @aminozcomau: Thanks Aminoz, received mine.. Fastway were truly fast.
            I am happy the way you handled regular updates over email and sms. Good Job

            • +1

              @desparito: Oh great, thanks for the update. They are fast most of the time. And thanks I appreciate the feedback!

      • +1

        @aminozcomau trust me AP are equally bad… had a delivery from MACPAC and specifically replied to AP's sms that i will be at home. Still they left a card to collect from PO.

  • unfortunately I got a message yesterday my delivery will be delayed because out of stock, both in in the sanitizer and the spray bottle, because of out of stock.
    Do you have any idea of possible delivery date?

    • Please ignore this message, and I am sorry for the confusion as this is an automated email. The order will not be delayed extensively. We are currently manufacturing the product and for all new orders we're expecting a lead time within a week.

      • Jay
      • Jay Thank you.

        Do you now have a expected date of delivery?

        • It should say on your order invoice your ETA, stating within x days from dispatch. So you should get the dispatch email shortly and then it will be within this many days after your order has shipped out.

          • Jay
  • Has anyone got one - can it be used as a surface sanitiser? (i.e. fast drying and non-sticky)

    • +1

      The formula and comments from Jay suggests to me that would be perfectly fine in most cases. Some comments from lab workers in this deal suggest they use similar formulations for cleaning. You might want to do a small test first if the surface is plastic. Daughter's workplace was cleaning down surfaces with metho at one point. It certainly can affect plastics. Hope he doesn't mind but you could ask member assailantsky for a more-informed opinion.

    • You may wish to check that there is no issue with the hydrogen peroxide, ethanol and propylene glycol on the surfaces that you are cleaning. This will sanitise surfaces though and this is not a sticky formula. However I am not an expert in this area and the suggestion above by Possumbly is great.

      • Jay
    • +1

      Just got it. It's not very viscous/sticky and is fine to use in a spray.

    Just got pickup notification

    • +1

      Same here so off to collect it this Saturday. I actually received an email the week I placed the order saying it was going to be cancelled as I hadnt paid even though I did so I sent them a screenshot of my statement. Turns out the first time I tried to order via Afterpay, it failed but still generated an order number and the second time I tried when I finally got in is the correct order and is now ready.

      • Just an FYI, we are closed on Saturday due to the public holiday. Open all other days though.

        • Jay
        • Ohh yeah forgot about that! I'll swing by Sunday then, cheers!

          • @stigsphilocousin: Phew lucky you saw the comment. I tried to PM you, but it was disabled on your account. All good!

  • Still getting OOS texts and emails, will it ever be shipped? 😷

    • +1

      Plenty of orders being shipped and we've been putting on additional people this week and will continue to do so today/Sunday/Monday to get these orders out. Sorry for the OOS texts/emails, but the bulk of the ordered product has been manufactured we're now in the process of fulfilling orders.

    I’m a bit confused as to what is happening with my order. I ordered early on the 15th and like others have received a few emails saying out of stock etc.
    Has anyone who ordered on 15th or later received an update?

    • Hi Chichi - please shoot us over a PM with your order number and email and we can look into your order for you if you like.

    For those that have received, what does it smell like? Ok or bad?

    • +1

      It’s a very very mild alcohol smell. If you remember using Aqium hand sanitiser, it’s a lot milder and doesn’t have that burning alcohol smell when you sniff it.

      It’s pretty good.

  • +1

    Thanks Jay/Amino Z, received the shipping notice last Thursday, my order arrived today. (Ordered during original deal -14th April)

    All nicely packed, no frills bottle sealed tight, no frills black and white sticker, label is a bit big but fancy packaging isn’t the reason we all bought one.

    The hand sanitiser is very liquid like, I’d say in between water and Aqium hand sanitiser but a lot closer to water in terms of consistency.

    The smell is very mild compared to Aqium and Purell.

    The 1L bottles are small and compact, makes it very easy to store.

    Filled up an empty Purell hand sanitiser pump bottle and it works well. No issues.

    • +1

      Fantastic! Thanks for the feedback emoticon (and your support too) really appreciated!!

      • Jay
  • +1

    Got mine today. Unfortunately it looks like the sanitiser has leaked out of the containers during shipment, as I could feel the liquid when pulling them out and seeing the different levels in the containers. I've sent them an email so hopefully it'll be sorted.

    • Oh darn, I believe you 100%!! Hope they are able to sort it out for you.

      I just opened my second package/shipping bag because of what you said and mines exactly the same. Noticeable difference in the amount of liquid still inside the bottles, in my case a bit less than 1cm’s worth.

      The two bottles inside my second shipping bag are wet, especially around the sides of the bottle and round the rim next to the bottle cap. The sticker label soaked and darkened.

      I’ve tightened the lid/cap to make sure it wasn’t loose and it was loose a tiny bit. Liquid did pour out when I angled the bottle . There’s no puncture or other sort of damage.

      I’m fairly confident it leaked during shipping because the lids weren’t tightened properly before shipping, ordered 4 in total and my first package of two were fine.

      @Jay/Amino Z, is there any recourse for people who experience this leaking issue?

      For comparison: my first package I opened: https://imgur.com/a/9anu5WI

      • +2

        Oh of course. If you're experienced any loss of product we can sort it out so I'd suggest just sending through an email to us and we can rectify the situation. We're certainly not going to leave you dissatisfied if there's been a problem in shipping.

        Also - I'll onforward this feedback to the warehouse as we're packing these like crazy, they may just need to double check the lids are properly secured as they are being packed.

        • Jay
        • Oh wow! That’s fantastic customer service. I didn’t lose much at all, especially compared to Yuun from the sound of things so I’m fine and don’t need a replacement. Just posted as a general comment/feedback.

          But this is great for others to know; if something goes wrong you’ll look after them.

          Yeah no worries, that’s understandable, there’s 25000 clicks on this deal so I’m guessing you guys have a lot of orders to go through. No harm done, stuff happens.

          Keep up the good work.

          • +1

            @emoticon: Absolutely, if there's an issue that's how we handle things, nothing worse than being dissatisfied. So yep just shoot through a message if you're unhappy though! Thanks again for the feedback!

            • -2

              @aminozcomau: Thank you! Nah I’m not too fussed over a small amount.

              But glad to see you’re helping out FunkDemon and Yuun.

              P.S. one of my bottles was filled with slightly more hand sanitiser than the others, so that already made up for the small loss.

              • @emoticon: Oh ok cool, thanks for letting me know. Okay all good!

                • Jay
      • +1

        Mine arrived today and I had pretty much the same issue as you described except it affected all four bottles. I've emailed support about it and waiting to here back (Ticket ID 573043)

        • No worries.

          Only one of my bottles had the cap loose and I luckily didn’t lose much (6-7mm estimate eyeballing the side window) otherwise I’d ask for a replacement as well.

          Hopefully you get your free replacements soon.

        • +1

          Okay thanks for getting in touch and I'll ensure the team looks after you. I spoke with the warehouse today and they did advise that they noticed some of the earlier shipments had loose caps and so now they are being diligent in tightening them as they are shipping out.

      Hi Yuun, I'm sorry to hear about that. Not a problem at all - we'll sort this out for you. Just so you're aware, CS is a few days behind on emails. They will definitely get back to you (I will make sure of it) and we'll send over a replacement. Could you let me know your order so I can keep an eye on it? Thanks!

          Thanks Yuun. Let me know how it goes. As mentioned the team is a bit behind on emails by a matter of days, they are doing their best to catch up and will get back to you ASAP.

          • @aminozcomau: I sent an email on 22/4 and only got a response today.
            It was to cancel my order after receiving the email update saying to reply to change the order but then I recieved the order yesterday before I even got a reply.

            • @8azinga: Sorry for the delay on this, the customer service team is quite behind (obviously). If you still didn't want the product can you let me know your order number so I can get Vanessa to reach out to you? Thanks!

              • Jay
          • @aminozcomau: Vanessa replied back to me today! They've arranged for a replacement to be sent out. Was expecting at least a couple of days till hearing something based on your previous comment. Really pleased with the service!

            • @Yuun Yii: Oh great, glad Vanessa could get onto that. We're scrambling at the moment! Thanks again for reaching out so we could fix things up for you.

  • Hello,

    My order arrived but it leaked and the package packaging has disappeared after ink dissolved in the Alcohol.

    Can we have a link to the Packaging as its required for my workplace (healthcare) and I will print it again.

    I'm a bit disappointed it leaked but still happy as long as I can get Logo soon.

    Regards

      Hi Haxxa, sorry about that, this was the first batch where we printed them in-house to get the product out due to a supply delay on the labels. If you like we can post you a label? Alternatively you can download it here:

      https://www.aminoz.com.au/media/wysiwyg/amino-z-hand-sanitis...

      If it leaked much just shoot through a message to our team with your order number so we can fix things up if needed.

      • Jay
  • I just received it mate, all good here!
    Thanks for the news papers too :D

    • Ah great! Sounds like the warehouse ran out of packing paper…happy reading! Thanks again for the order!

      • Jay
  • Received the package today with newspapers :) It has slightly leaked.
    Any tips in pouring the product into a small container without wasting? Quite challenging as it's very much like a liquid.

    Thank you.

    • +3

      Use a funnel.

    • Was there much product loss or is the leaking only minor? Please let me know if there was much loss so we can fix things up.

      Funnel is probably your best bet as xoom mentioned, especially if you purchased the spray bottles as they will have a narrower opening.

      • Jay
      • +1

        Thanks both!
        It was a minor leak so won't bother you with that, thank you. Lost more by not using a funnel :)
        For those who don't have a funnel like me, I found this: https://spoonuniversity.com/how-to/diy-this-makeshift-funnel...

        • Oh great! Thanks again Rosace and what a great idea using some foil! Wouldn't have thought of that. Thanks for sharing!

          • Jay
  • I canceled my order as the time frame was too long and i needed it urgently, so i obtained some locally.

    I've been in contact via email and sms multiple times requesting a refund but not having any luck so i thought maybe airing my grievance here out in the open might get some results.

    My order number is 109533747 paid via paypal.

    I'd be relieved if this could be resolved.
    Thank you

    • Thanks for the note and sorry our team is about 4 days behind on email, but thanks for making me aware of this. I've just made Vanessa aware of this so she can ensure action is taken here for you. Apologies about the poor experience here, we'll get this sorted for you.

      • Jay
    • Hi D33bz - received an update from Vanessa saying that they already replied back and are processing the refund. Did you not receive their reply? Just want to check that our email/sms system is working correctly and emails aren't landing in your junk folder?

      Anyway the PayPal refund is going to be processed for you shortly.

      • Jay
      • All good now thanks Jay.

        Cheers!

        • Great thanks for letting me know!

          • Jay
  • Received this morning also but leaking in the parcel sachet. Need to improve the packaging so it's more secure.

    • Thanks for the note and also the feedback. Did you want us to fix this up for you? If so please let us me know your order number and I'll ensure this is taken care of.

      • Jay
      • Hi Jay, it's 109534476 thanks

                @aminozcomau: Weird question, but do you know what the total weight of the product including bottle is? I just received mine and have also had some leakage. I thought I'd use my kitchen scales to try and gauge how much liquid was lost, but without knowing the weight of the bottle can't really get an accurate measure.

                • @40YearOldSturgeon: Let me check with the warehouse on the weight (as I'm not physically there right now) and I'll get back to you by tomorrow at the latest.

                  • Jay
                • @40YearOldSturgeon: So the total weight should be about 1.06kg or thereabouts. Please let me know if there's an issue and we'll be happy to fix things up.

                  • Jay
              • @aminozcomau: Edit: Double post

  • Requested a refund about 5 days ago to no reply and received product today. Meh.

    • Sorry for the delay on this FlopHunter. I'm in constant communication with our team because they have been slammed and we've hired now 3 additional people to catch up on all the enquiries. A delay of 5 days I agree is unacceptable - what's your order number? I'd like to see what we can do here.

  • Hello,

    I got a shipping notice last Friday for order #109534086. But the tracking on Fastway still shows no result.

    I'm wondering if there's an update with the shipping?

    Thanks!

    • -1

      Yeah my Fastway tracking showed no results at all until after it was delivered.

      • +1

        Not unusual with Fastway contractors ime. I had one SCA order which had only about a 25km distance to be covered and it wasn't logged at any time. SCA was eventually able to trace the order to a depot a few days later. The driver had failed to log the pickup, failed to deliver to me, failed to log that he'd dropped it off at the depot. Another of their contractors dropped an expensive Amazon order off at a neighbour's - half a dozen houses up the street on the other side of the road - despite the address being clear and correct. They have a bad reputation for good reason.

    • +1

      Fastway seems to be delayed in their system and so will be deliveries. It has definitely been sent. I'd expect this no later than tomorrow to arrive given current delays with delivery services, but please let me know if it isn't received by then and we will just ship off another. Thanks!

      • Jay
  • Hey Amino Store,

    I ordered on 14 April. Kept getting emails saying no stock. Waited patiently and finally received an email 10 days later on 24 April saying order dispatched. Now, I received an email saying that Fastway can't deliver my order as it is damaged and that there is no stock (ETA minimum 2-3 weeks). I'm not happy to wait another 2-3 weeks for stock to arrive and then more time for you to dispatch. Please kindly refund. Order number is 109533585. Thanks.

    • Hi nminl, thanks for reaching out. I looked at your order and I see you were incorrectly informed by our customer service team it would be another 2-3 week wait. We can send a replacement order for you tomorrow. Would you prefer this? If not let me know and we can do the refund instead.
