I was hearing a lot about Thrive Market, and decided to go ahead and put them to the test. Is it really a good deal?
I had put together a shopping cart full of groceries on Amazon, and my total came up to about $160. I put the same amount in my cart plus a few other things on Thrive Market, and my total came to right around $100.
Plus, they were throwing in a discount, a free thing of Orgain Organic Protein, and a few of the items were actually the bigger quantities.
So I definitely decided to sign up and placed my order.
They have this handy savings tracker, and it’s about spot on. It’s pretty cool to also see my projected savings.
Wanna see my order and how much I got for $100? Watch my Unboxing video below:
HOW IT WORKS:
1. You first sign up for a free 30 day trial, and get 15% off your first order by visiting this link HERE.
2. Browse products and place your first order.
3. All orders over $49 ship for free, so it’s a good idea to just place a bulk grocery order once a month.
4. Once the trial is over, you can join as a member for $59.95. Considering that I already saved as much as I did JUST on the first order, the membership seems worth it. The nice thing about this is that they donate a membership to a family in need from every membership that is purchased. #GoodCausesRock
All in all this is definitely cheaper than Amazon or even my regular local grocery store. The only real drawback is that Thrive Market takes longer to ship than Amazon.
So after shooting the first video I decided to make a second one to discuss how it compares to Vitacost.
Vitacost is pretty comparable in pricing, and can be cheaper depending on what’s on sale. Vitacost doesn’t have a membership fee, either. Some items were a better deal on Thrive Market, while others are a better deal on Vitacost.
The lesson? Do some price comparing and see if it works for the types of foods that you buy each month.
So now it’s time to hear from you. Do you use Thrive Market? Do you feel that a membership is worth it? Or would you rather shop on a site like Vitacost and avoid the membership fee altogether? Share your thoughts and comments down below!
