It all started in 2002, when founder Mike Roberto was a water polo player at the Ohio State University. Looking to gain some lean muscle mass, Mike went online to find some whey protein.
Being the poor college student that he was, Mike scoured the search listings, trying to save a buck on his protein. Rather than finding any savings, he instead found himself in what we call "Google hell". Pages and pages of nonsense, scams, and shady sites... yet no savings.
"There's got to be a better way to do this."
All of the other price comparison sites out there -- which are great for things like refrigerators and electronics -- simply didn't cut it when it came to nutrition products. Just more unorganized clutter, with different product sizes and flavors strewn all over the place.
November 24, 2008 - PricePlow 1.0
7 years later, Mike finally began working on his dream - a better price comparison site for supplements. On November 24, 2008, the first version of PricePlow was launched.
There's got to be a better way to do this.
Although the original site didn't function as well as Mike had intended, it led to some other incredible ventures in the supplement industry.
Yet, as the other ventures flourished, PricePlow languished. On April 24, 2012, Mike decided that it was time to make PricePlow into everything it was meant to be - an ethical, honest, and functional site where you can find great deals on legitimate health and nutritional products.
December 9, 2013 - PricePlow 2.0
After a few mishaps, Mike finally got things going with the next version of PricePlow. On December 9, 2013, he quietly pushed the new version live, and the team has been improving it ever since.
