I am not a saleswoman. I hate trying to sell things. I was never good at it in school. I was terrible selling Girl Scout cookies…I could never sell any candy bars. Why? Because I’ve been cheap since birth. It’s really hard selling $1 candy bar when you wouldn’t DARE pay that yourself. “Excuse me, would you be interested in buying this overpriced candy bar that you could get cheaper at Family Dollar?” That just doesn’t work.

Also, I worry that I’ll tell someone to buy something they will end up hating it and in turn will also end up hating me. It’s a natural circle. You can rest assured that if I tell you about a product on here that I like, it’s something that I use and that I really like. I won’t try to ever sell you something that I don’t use or don’t like…the natural circle of hate, remember?

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’m ready to tell you about something that I’ve been using and LOVING. Recently, I’ve been ordering several things from a website called Vitacost. They offer products that are 30-70% below retail price…I don’t know how they do it, but they do it. What do they sell? Vitamins, foods, oils, medications, etc. If you’re buying it online at Amazon or from a natural foods store, you should try checking Vitacost to see how much cheaper they are.  Since I use this store and I KNOW it’s cheaper on most things, I felt like I should also pass that information along to you. It’s how I’ve been able to buy a lot of the herbs and essential oils that we’re using now.

They are a great company and they have fabulous customer service. I’m tickled pink every time I get my order from them…plus, they use this sticky bubble wrap that keeps Annie occupied for a long time. Thank you, Vitacost!

Something that usually bothers me about buying things online is the OUTRAGEOUS shipping costs that some companies charge. No thanks, dude. But, at Vitacost you pay $4.99 for shipping in the US and if your order is over $49, you get FREE shipping. Free makes me happy – very happy.

I placed my first order via a friend’s referral link. That meant I got $10 in free products! I felt like a kid in a candy store – I bought liquid vitamin C for Annie and orange essential oil. So, here’s the exciting thing. If you sign up using my referral link, then you’ll also get a $10 credit and when you use it, I’ll get another $10 credit. (You should receive an email with a $10 code credit.)

Here’s the best part, the fun doesn’t stop there. If you send your referral link to a friend or family member and they order, then YOU’LLL get $10 free again! How’s that for a great referral program?

If you sign up through my link, I would be very grateful.  I love sharing places with you guys to find good prices on top quality products. I have to share places to find good deals – that’s my job.  😉

  1. I bought some stuff from them a while back and still get their catalogs, and have intended to buy more recently, but keep forgetting. I’ll have to see if there’s anything on their site that is also on my list.

  2. Maybe you could share your list …

    Signed up by the way. I thought I had an account, but it’s been YEARS. I’m glad you sold this to me. hehe!

  3. How do I know I signed up under you?

  4. Thanks for this Stacy! My coupon code came right away, and I was able to order my hubby’s protein powder super cheap (Vega Whole Food, Berry flavor in case anyone is interested .. no dairy). It costs me $69 in Canada, but I live near the border so can ship stuff there, and with the $10 coupon code, it came to $49!!! How’s that for a huge savings!?! Thanks so much for this great referral! I will be shopping there again! Susan

  5. Another friend recommend Vitacost to me, too. I’m definitely going to check it out. Our budget is so tight…and anything to make it go farther is always welcomed. I think the shipping costs are fair. I’m going to take a look at this later today or tomorrow…gotta clean house :( :( Thanks for the info. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    • I really like the company and the prices they offer….the shipping is a BIG plus!

      • I went to their website to create an account…and something happened with the server…but I don’t see a log on page. So I tried to create another account, but it said that my email address was already in use :) :) so I;m hoping it will work itself out, because I”d really love to see what they have to offer, that I can use at home!! Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

        • Heather, just let me know if you don’t get your code. :-) I think they have online support during the day if you need to chat with someone.

  6. I already have an account. I could use the extra $10! Oh well, thanks for the reminder that I need to place an order!

    Git yer syrup on!!!

    I KNOW I just rocked your face off, huh?


    • Hmmmmm. I think you might read my blog. Ha, ha! :-) I just ordered 4 quarts from Amazon last week…and I don’t like to keep too much so it doesn’t turn to sugar on the bottom. That’s a GREAT buy!

  8. Oh my goodness, how I wish I found this post yesterday. I went to my local grocery co-op seeing (and buying) essential oils and such. Glad I know about Vitacost going forward! Thank you!

    I just ordered thru your link and got my coupon!! Thanks! It was a big help. Let me know if it worked on your end.

  13. I just made my first order using your link! My son is has celiac, so buying here should be helpful, as opposed to driving to Wholefoods or Trader Joes.

  14. Just signed up through you. :) I just made an order through them as a guest, glad I waited to sign up! 😀

    • I get so excited!!! I even want to know what people ordered. LOL I’m weird like that….so, what did you order? 😉
