I recently ran out of a supplement I took and needed a new bottle. I had purchase more on the internet but they had not arrived yet, so I figured I can go to a local Hi-Health store to purchase them. When I checked prices on the Hi-Health website, it listed the product for $8.99.
However, when I arrived at the store, I was surprised to find that the store itself was selling the product for much higher, something like $17.99. This is a huge difference and one of the main reasons I don’t buy supplements at brick-and-mortar health or supplement stores.
I did complain about this, and the store honored the website’s price. However, I don’t want to do this each time I buy from a local store, especially if I am buying a number of products.
Online, there are no such hassles and moreover, as this experience shows, you can always expect lower prices when you buy supplements on the Internet.
On top of that, I find that when I purchase vitamins online, I can also take advantage of online coupons. For example, one store I used frequently is Pureformulas. And there are many websites such as http://www.referralbusinessbuilders.com/pureformulas-discount-coupon.php that offer Pureformulas coupons that can save you up to 50% on your order.
The one downside about buying online, however, is shipping costs. For this reason, I recommend buying sufficient quantities to qualify for free shipping. At Pureformulas, however shipping on all items is free all the time. This isn’t the case at most stores, which will require you to order a certain amount before they throw in free shipping.
