Health Foods at Wholesale Prices: Thrive Market Review

Health Foods at Wholesale Prices: Thrive Market Review

Thrive MarketThrive Market offers a plethora of healthy, organic, vegan and gluten free food options.  From main food ingredients, oils and dressings, snacks and baking, Thrive has the majority of your kitchen covered.  They also have beauty products, vitamins and supplements, household supplies and pet food (to name a few).

So, this could save me a trip to the grocery store, but the real question is “Will it save me money?”  A Thrive Market membership is $59.95 per year (less than $5 per month), the first 30 days are free to give it a try and you can cancel anytime. Since I pay $110 per year for my Costco membership (Sam’s Club comparable membership cost is $100/yr, Amazon Prime $99/yr) I think this is a nice price point to consider for members-only shopping.

Overall, Thrive Market beat the online and in-store prices on the items I ordered.  Prices do fluctuate and will be reduced when sales happen, but this is a snapshot of my experience on this particular day.

 

Thrive Market offers free shipping.

Thrive offers free shipping on orders $49 and over.  Thrive matches each paid membership with a free membership for a low-income American family.

Overall, I like the Thrive Market concept and products they carry and I will continue to use it for much of my non-perishable health food shopping.
