biggest real food deals at thrive market

So, I feel like I’m late to the party when it comes to Thrive Market.  Amazon has changed my life when it comes to shopping and, well, I just didn’t want to learn another site and, yeah, just pure laziness.

However, when it comes to saving money, I can make exceptions.  

When I got my rebate from Costco and saw that I had essentially had not used the store enough to warrent the  $100  membership fee, I decided it was time to look into Thrive Market.

Yes, Thrive Market is a membership site, just like Costco, but there are some key diifferenes.

  1. You order online and get these items shipped to your home.  No driving and fighting your kids in the store!
  2. There are so many more organic, GMO-free Paleo and  Gluten-free food items (not to mention a plethora of home goods, kids and baby products, beauty  products and health stuff)
  3. The savings compared to Amazon are staggering.  It’s shocking how much money you can save on real food from Thrive Market.  Yes, I am a Amazon Prime member ($99 per year)  and a huge fan who is not going anywhere but wow.
  4. The membership cost is $59.95 a year but you can start with a 30 Day Free Trial here.   When you purchase a membership, Thrive also sponsors a low-income family.

I looked at a lot of products to create this list and 7 times out of 10 the price was at least $3 to $4 cheaper on Thrive when compared to Amazon.  If it wasn’t cheaper, it was the same cost, not more expensive.  To give you the best bang for you buck this round up only shares food items that are at least 40% off the price you would pay at Amazon. Most of the products are up to 75% Off.

If you went on a shopping spree and bought all of the items in this post these are the price tags you would see.

Total Cost:

Thrive Market: $276.30   Amazon: $722.25

Over a 60% Savings!

*Please note that the pricing on Amazon can fluxate due to the stock of the item in the store.  Prices were compared on 9/26/15 and are subject to change.

    • September 27, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      I”m not sure Gladys. You can take your phone to the store and compare the costs. I’m pretty sure you will see a savings with Thrive Market hun.

    Wow! Thanks for doing that legwork for me, cuz you did basically what I’ve been thinking for a while;”I should check this out, but I got a good thing going with Amazon & I’m kinda lazy, so….” I will now seriously look into Thrive. Wonder if they have free shipping like we enjoy with Amazon tho?
    Thanks again for the price comp! Makes a huge difference!!

    I just went to Amazon on just one of the items you have listed above, the very last one: 16 0z Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Powdered Sugar it shows the 16 oz being $8.74 and the 4.5 lb pag being $17.99. not sure where you got the cost of the 16 oz bag being over $40. While the cost at Thrive seems to be less I will have to go and check on their prices as well.

      Thanks for sharing Kathy. When I did this post there was only 1 bag of powdered sugar in the marketplace so the price was high. Prices do fluxate on Amazon so I’ll make sure to pput a note at the top of the post sharing prices compared on 9/27/2015 and are subject to change.

      Hi Kathy! As prices fluctuate elsewhere, ours stay consistently low! We hope you’ll check us out soon!

    I shop all three as well and love Thrive and was very impressed when I realized how much I could save through them. The only issue I have with Thrive is that they don’t sell items in bulk. That is why I use Costco or Azure. For items like sliced almonds, you can’t beat Costco prices.

    • October 2, 2015 at 12:19 pm

      Oooh, I didn’t think of that Juanita! Thanks for sharing hun.

      Thanks Juanita for the support! We have received feedback that bulk items are of interest to our customers. I’ll definitely pass your feedback along as well! Thrive on!

    Thanks so much Kelly…I will check out Thrive. Been wanting to do it for a while, but just didn’t feel like putting the time in. Thanks for the push 🙂

    • October 4, 2015 at 6:58 pm

      You are welcome! The savings is so worth it 🙂

    I just subscribed to A Girl Worth Saving. First I tried one of your recipes and then checked out Thrive Market. I just compared prices on one item I bought on Amazon last week. $21 on Amazon compared to $15 on Thrive Market. I do all my non-perishable food shopping on Amazon. This will make a huge difference! Thanks!

    I use Vitacost.com — The prices are very comparable with Thrive, without the membership fee and free shipping over $50. (I don’t know what Thrive’s shipping is). I have looked at Thrive, but stick with Vitacost. I usually get my order in 2 days with great packaging.
    Just another resource!

    Agree with Janet about VitaCost. Have ordered from them many times as prices, range of products & customer service are top notch. Orders well packed & receive in good time as well. Plus no fee/membership required. Being retired & on limited fixed income, all factors work well for us buying from VitaCost. vs. Thrive or Amazon.
