Save BIG on Natural Care Products at

How to Save Money by Shopping at -

Since we’re talking about saving money on groceries this week, I couldn’t resist telling you about my favorite online store to purchase natural products at rock-bottom prices–

I discovered Vitacost sometime over the past year, and I quickly discovered how much money my family could save by getting all our vitamins and supplements there instead of at our local health food store.

Now, I do believe the bulk of our nutrition should come from whole foods. BUT…especially since my children cannot eat what seems to be three major food groups (gluten, dairy and egg), I do feel like we need to use supplements to cover all of our bases. There are also times when life just gets crazy and I don’t know if I am feeding us all quite as properly as normal (like when I’m pregnant or postpartum).

But supplements can get very, very pricey! So I’m so thankful to have discovered that I can get them at Vitacost for anywhere from 20-70% off retail value! 

The products we’ve purchased at Vitacost have included:

  • probiotics (for both adults and children)
  • Animal Parade vitamins for the girls
  • fish oil for both us and the girls
  • 42 Fruits and Veggies for me (the Vitacost version of Juice Plus…which is way, way too pricey for our budget!)
  • red rice yeast for my husband
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • prenatal vitamins
  • Floradix liquid iron
  • red raspberry leaf loose tea and capsules
  • elderberry syrup and capsules
  • echinacea capsules
  • garlic capsules
  • grapeseed oil extract
  • Calcium-Magnesium powder
  • whole grain millet (to grind in my WonderMill)
  • natural shampoo and bar soap–as well as toothpaste for the girls
  • Ecos dishwasher detergent
  • 7th Generation liquid dish soap
  • and more!

(We don’t order ALL that every month–but that’s just an example of some of the items we have ordered from there!)

When ordering from Vitacost, it will tell you how much you are saving from retail price. BUT, if you keep a price book like Anne Simplon suggests in her eBook, Your Grocery Budget Toolbox, then you will be able to quickly compare whatever the Vitacost price is against whatever you pay at the store (or Amazon, etc.). 

Now here’s the BEST part! When you sign up with a Vitacost account using someone else’s referral code, they will send you a $10 coupon to use on your first order (of $30 or more)! 

And it gets even better, every time YOU refer a friend, your friend gets a $10 coupon AND you get a $10 coupon!

You can save your coupons for up to a certain length of time and use up to $100 worth at the same time! And you can use the codes as long as the order is $30 or more.

So, say for instance that you refer 3 friends (and you can refer friends in a very low-pressure way, such as updating a Facebook post), you will get $30 worth of coupons! If you place a $30 order, you can get the order for free! 

You cannot use the codes toward taxes or shipping, but Vitacost has a flat rate shipping of only $4.99–regardless of the order size. You can sometimes get free shipping if you spend $25 or more on Vitacost brand products (which are typically cheaper), and you can always get free shipping on orders over $49. (Note: You still cannot apply the coupon codes to shipping.)

I am JUST now starting to check out some of Vitacost’s food selection, but they have just about every natural brand you could imagine for shelf-stable foods and personal care products. The only thing I don’t think they carry is produce and meat! 

Want to get started? You can sign up for a Vitacost account here. You do NOT have to place an order to sign up, but I do think your code will expire in something like 60 days if you don’t order. 

And then….sign up for the referral program and tell your friends about how they can start saving money at Vitacost as well!

Have you ever bought groceries, supplements, etc. online? What is your favorite online store?

    Oooh, interesting about the fruits and veggies. I hadn’t heard about that…we are vitacost users, too. Does it bother you that they’re not organic?

    While trying to build better eating habits and routines that work for our family we tend to run out of groceries before week. I have recently found 2 options: ships to home in. Approx 48 hours/ free shipping over$90 no member fees but like Costco/samsclub feel free to share my referral code 9WBX2 for $5 off shop from smart phone or tablet. Next is referral code code GVUAYX will get you $20 off 1st order: fresh meals propped & shipped to your home weekly or order one off just to try it out. No obligation just cancel within 7 days of shipping, I need to lose weight & we have a busy life this could be the answer for some of your readers :).

    I’ve been using for about 6 months. Their price on organic pressed coconut oil–we use the 56 oz. size–is best I have found. I find many gluten free products there–like pastas–that I cannot find anywhere else. Specifically, I found tagliatelli–an egg noodle that is a good replacement for real noodles in chicken noodle soup and other noodle dishes where macaroni or spaghetti just doesn’t cut it. I have found that they carry Lundberg’s rice and a lot of different ways–Lundbergs is one that checks for arsenic–a big problem with rice products now and gluten intolerant people who end up using a lot of gluten free products. I use for nutritional supplements that are more brand specific–a big savings over buying them from the doctor’s office.

    Swanson health products at is cheaper! Yeah and they always have awesome promotions the email a lot but you can just chat someone for the promo code so you don’t have to sign up for emails.

    I would love to know what brand of products you use from Vita Cost! It’s so overwhelming to look at all the options and not know which ones are good/ higher recommendations.
