Feeling like you need a little more protein in your diet? Adding protein powder to smoothies is one of the easiest ways to add this essential nutrient to your diet. Right now, Bodybuilding.com has a phenomenal deal on the 5lb bottle of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% whey powder in the natural vanilla. Regularly $54.96, it is on sale for $32.01. Once you add it to your cart, it will discount by another 20% for all gold standard 100% whey, down to $25.61. Then, add the coupon code
Rmnbbcm10 (now expired but there are other potential coupon codes here) to get an even further discount and bring your total down to $23.05.
Just to let you know how great of a deal this is, I shopped around to see what other stores sold this exact brand of whey powder for. Here it is on sale at Amazon for $80.97! And here it is at SVN Canada also on sale for $79.95. Finally, here it is on sale at Supplements Canada for $79.99.
Now, you may know that Bodybuilding.com is a U.S. site, but all prices are in Canadian dollars. Also, the shipping is not light, but it includes all duties and this deal is still far better than buying it on any of those Canadian sites I mentioned. For one bottle of protein powder, you’ll pay $9.37 in shipping and duties, which I think is very reasonable.
If you use protein powder on a regular basis, you might be smart to stock up, although I’d think about how much you actually need as this stuff does expire. Don’t buy 20 bottles for the heck of it and hope to use then within the year, unless you actually will.
While the 5lb gold standard bottle was the best deal I found in terms of prices elsewhere, all of the gold standard 100% whey bottles in both 5 and 2lbs sizes are an extra 20% off and you can use that coupon to even further your discount. You might want to play around with the ones you like and see what sort of discount you get. Let me know in the comments below what you ordered!
