Vitacost





I first discovered Vitacost December 2011. Amazon was my go to store for discounts and fast shipping. Amazon prices are no longer competitive for the products I love and they no longer offer 2 day free shipping with subscribe and save. With Vitacost Set & Save you get 10% off your locked in lowest price when you order. Yes lock in guarantee lowest price for a product during your ordering cycle.

Gluten free and allergy free foods are hard to find in my local stores. We don't have the convenience of an All Natural Store. Now that Vitacost offers Set & Save I don't see myself shopping around for the best price. I know Vitacost offers what is best for my family.

You can select 2 free samples with each order. Stock up and save for a gift basket or try a new product.

Vitacost offers a referral program. If you sign up with my link, we both earn $10. Once you are familiar with Vitacost, share your love and $10 with your family/friends.

So what are some of my favorite products?

I found a wonderful recipe for homemade foam soap. You can purchase all the ingredients at Vitacost. No more expensive Bath n Body works when you can mix your own for less. It's Vegan too!
