CytoSport Monster Isolate Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 2.2 Lbs. – Only Vanilla, Chocolate)
Go to Store

Comment: Attention isolate fans! We've spotted about 7 tubs of this left on Amazon Prime, and it's a crazy good deal!

There's some additives in this powder, so it's not the 'cleanest', but you'll still get 25g of whey isolate vs. 4g carbs and 1.5g fat.

MuscleTech Anarchy Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 30 Servings – Only Watermelon)
Go to Store

Comment: Anarchy is one of the brand's *several* pre workout supplements - this one has a few ingredients in nice doses, but only if you can handle two scoops, which would bring a serious 380mg caffeine and 2.4mg yohimbine!

So this deal's best for the high-energy crew out there, the pumps are a touch less balanced but still not bad with the 750mg Nitrosigine / scoop.

MuscleTech Anarchy Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 60 Servings – Only Blue Raspberry, Pink Lemonade, Watermelon, Fruit Punch)
Go to Store

Comment: Anarchy is one of the brand's *several* pre workout supplements - this one has a few ingredients in nice doses, but only if you can handle two scoops, which would bring a serious 380mg caffeine and 2.4mg yohimbine!

So this deal's best for the high-energy crew out there, the pumps are a touch less balanced but still not bad with the 750mg Nitrosigine / scoop.

AllMax Nutrition IsoFlex Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. – Only Chocolate)
Go to Store

Comment: IsoFlex is one of the best-mixing whey protein isolates we've ever had. A long while ago, CJ and Mike reviewed the chocolate mint flavor and downright loved it!

It may have some amino acid spiking going on, but looking at the amino acid profile, this is a pretty high quality protein isolate, especially given this price.

iSatori MX-LS7 Discount
(Fat Burner, 120 Capsules)
Go to Store

Comment: MX-LS7 has been replaced by a second version (MX-LS7 V2), so you'll find incredible deals like this one.

Looking at the label, it's clear that iSatori was way ahead of their time with some ingredients like Forskolin (just recently becoming very popular).

Unfortunately, it's in a proprietary blend and we're not sure how much caffeine's in there, so start light and assess.

Cellucor Alpha Amino Discount
(BCAA Powder, 15 Servings – Only Icy Blue Razz, Fruit Punch)
Go to Store

Comment: Alpha Amino is Cellucor's super loaded and delicious amino acid supplement that has 5g BCAAs, 3g hydration formula, and 2.5g additional aminos (such as glutamine, citrulline, and more).

Very popular product, and we've never seen a per-unit price anywhere near this one!

Pure Protein Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 6 Small Bars – Only Chocolate Peanut Butter)
Go to Store

Comment: These are the popular protein bars you see at grocery stores. Note that the small bars here have 21g protein each and the large ones have 32g. For the small bars, $1.00/bar qualifies for this page.

Ultimate Nutrition Iso-Sensation 93 Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. – Only Chocolate Fudge, Vanilla Bean, Banana Ice Cream, Natural, Strawberry)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: A pure* whey protein isolate at an insane price!!

*Note that it's amino acid spiked with some glutamine, so we're setting a tighter deal threshold for this one. If you see it here, it's worth investigating!

Dymatize Elite Whey Protein Discount
(Whey Protein, 2 Lbs. – Only Gourmet Vanilla)
Go to Store

Comment: This is Dymatize's flagship protein powder. When you can get 5lbs of the good stuff here for under $37.50, it's into hot deal territory and nearly everybody loves it.

SAN 100% Pure Titanium Whey Discount
(Protein Powder, 1 Lb. – Only Cookies & Cream, Tropical Berry)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a whey concentrate first protein powder with a few interesting exotic flavors. We'll occasionally catch it under $7/lb (sometimes due to BOGO mode) which puts it deep into hot deal territory!

Jay Cutler Total Protein Discount
(Protein Powder, 4.65 Lbs.)
Go to Store

Comment: Cutler's Total Protein is owned by BPI Sports, a company that's working hard to prove that their protein is of high quality.

This protein was reformulated mid-2015, with more maltodextrin and less protein. We adjusted the hot deal threshold so it's more strict. If you see it on this page, it's over 42g protein per dollar.

MuscleTech Mission 1 Bar Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Chocolate Brownie)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: This is MuscleTech's attack on Quest Bars, with 20g protein (from isolate sources), 24g carbs (20g from IMO-based fiber and soluble corn fiber), and just 6g fat.

Reviews have been decent, but this price makes it worthy to stash in the house for a low protein day!

ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Protein Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Chocolate Peanut Butter)
Go to Store

Comment: These are Quest Bar competitors - not as good, but when they're half the price of Quest, that changes things...

SNS Creatine Monohydrate Discount
(Creatine Monohydrate, 1200 Grams)
Go to Store

Comment: Bulk creatine monohydrate for under $0.01 per gram! You cannot beat this - scientifically backed gains for literally 3 cents per day!

Scivation Xtend Free Discount
(BCAA Powder, 30 Servings – Only Crisp Apple)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: Want to try *all natural* BCAAs with no artificial sweeteners like sucralose / ace-k, no artificial colors, and no artificial flavors? Then this is your chance to do it without breaking the bank!

Xtend Free is sweetened with stevia (very hard to do with BCAAs which are bitter), but Scivation does a pretty good job of it!

ANSI Pro-Series Whey 25 Discount
(Whey Protein, 5 Lbs.)
Go to Store

Comment: Pro-Series Whey 25 is an isolate-first whey protein with 25g protein per scoop - a profile we can easily recommend to most users. If you see this under $7.50/lb, you're getting a great deal at over 45g protein per dollar!

We haven't tried this specific protein, but were very impressed with ANSI's Flurry protein series, so that bodes well.

ABB Speed Stack Discount
(Energy Drink, 1 Bottle – Only Grape)
Go to Store

Comment: They usually sell these for $2.50/ea at the gym.

Get a solid on-the-go workout in for under $1.00!

Scivation Xtend Discount
(BCAA Powder, 90 Servings – Only Blood Orange)
Go to Store

Comment: This is the BCAA supplement that started it all. It's delicious and insanely popular. We rarely see the price drop below $0.45/serving, but when it does, we're all over it.

Watermelon and Raspberry Blue are our two favorite flavors, but you basically can't go wrong with any of them.

Universal Ultra Whey Pro Discount
(Whey Protein, 5 Lbs. – Only Double Chocolate Chip, Strawberry Ice Cream, Cookies & Cream, Mocha Cappuccino, Strawberry Banana)
Go to Store

Comment: A popular whey protein with the "Animal" crowd, discounts have been coming since since Animal Whey was released.

When we find it at about $7.00/lb or less, we're getting over 45g protein per dollar, a massive steal!

BPI Sports ISO-HD Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 1.6 Lbs. – Only Vanilla Cookie, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Brownie)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: ISO-HD is a pure isolate with just Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Hydrolysate as its protein sources - great for lactose sensitive/intolerant users.

If you can get it for under $10/lb, you're in deal mode, but sometimes it takes a BOGO or a B2G1 to get to that point. So it might only be worth it if you've already sampled it!

Muscle Pharm Combat Powder Discount
(Protein Powder, 2 Lbs. – Only Mint Chocolate Chip)
Go to Store

Comment: Combat Powder is MusclePharm's flagship protein powder. Although we've had our differences with them, we love how you can look up each batch of protein on their MPSSI lab test website and see that it is a legit 25g protein with *added* free form amino acids - not amino acid spiked.

So when it's at $7.75/lb or less, you'll see it here on the hot deals page!

BPI Sports Whey-HD Discount
(Protein Powder, 4.6 Lbs. – Only Banana Marshmallow Pie, Chocolate Cookie, Granola Crunch)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: When it was released, Whey-HD was *always* on sale and got some incredible reviews in the chocolate department but even more with strawberry!

It's been a while since it's been on sale, so if you need to stock up, this deal can carry you for a while.

BPI Sports Whey-HD Discount
(Protein Powder, 2 Lbs. – Only Strawberry Cake, Milk & Cookies, Granola Crunch)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: When it was released, Whey-HD was *always* on sale and got some incredible reviews in the chocolate department but even more with strawberry!

It's been a while since it's been on sale, so if you need to stock up, this deal can carry you for a while.

Optimum Nutrition AmiNO Energy Discount
(Energy Amino, 75 Chewables)
Go to Store

Comment: We haven't tried the chewables, but this seems like a fun way to get a bit of energy in for your workout or snack in between meals. This price is when it'd be worth trying.

BSN EVOTEST Discount
(Natural Testosterone Booster, 100 Tablets)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a D-Aspartic Acid based natural testosterone booster, which means you'll get about 2-3 great weeks, and then you'll head back to baseline test levels. A good deal if you want a few fun weeks!

The tablets aren't as powerful as the powder, but at this price... we're not complaining

BPI Sports A-HD Discount
(Natural Testosterone Booster, 28 Servings – Only Fruit Punch)
Go to Store

Comment: A-HD is a natural testosterone booster from BPI. Reviews were never all that great (no side effects, just that many didn't feel anything), but some users did get enhanced energy and libido from it.

This is so cheap you can consider it if looking for an introductory test/libido booster just to get your feet wet.

FitJoy Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Pumpkin Pie)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: FitJoy Bars are made by the same company that owns Cellucor, and were one of the biggest and best product launches of 2016!
This BOGO offer on December 6, 2016 is *one day only* and it's on the most popular flavor - Homemade Pumpkin Pie - so jump in on it ASAP if you want to try!

PowerBar Protein Plus Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 15 Small Bars – Only Chocolate Peanut Butter)
Go to Store

Comment: At 20g protein per bar, this hits our $1.00/bar deal and then some. PowerBar is the *original* protein bar. It may not be the most popular, but we still love them and grab them when the price is right.

Throw a box if you have some other stuff to order.

NOW Sprouted Brown Rice Protein Discount
(Brown Rice Protein, 2 Lbs. – Only Vanilla)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a *ridiculous* amount of protein for the price, but it's unflavored and will NOT taste good alone. If you're into smoothies or have a vegetarian friend / family member, this is a great option for them.

Brown rice protein has a very good amino acid profile, especially given this price. We like milk-based protein better, but this is a great alternative for vegetarians and vegans who are low in daily protein intake (most are).

Cellucor COR-Performance Whey Discount
(Whey Protein, 4 Lbs. – Only Peanut Butter Marshmallow)
Go to Store

Comment: If you're seeing this deal, then you need to click on it and check it out ASAP!

Anytime you can get Cellucor's top-rated protein here for under $8.25/lb, there's no time to wait!

Nearly all of the flavors are fantastic, but we just can't stop raving about the specialty flavors in cinnamon swirl, red velvet cake, and s'mores!

BSN Hyper FX Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 30 Servings – Only Blue Raspberry, Grape)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a high-energy pre workout supplement, at 270mg caffeine per serving and plenty of beta alanine and other focus ingredients.

At under $13 per tub, you're getting well under 50 cents per workout. But if you want to get pumped up, you'll need to stack it with something else.

AI Sports Nutrition Magic Matcha Discount
(Green Tea, 28 Servings – Only Unsweetened)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a green tea powder that is extremely popular because of its high antioxidant content. It's over half off here!

MuscleTech Platinum 100% Whey Discount
(Whey Protein, 5 Lbs. – Only Milk Chocolate Supreme)
(Buy 1 Get 1 50% OFF)
Go to Store

Comment: This is MuscleTech's answer to ON's 100% Whey Protein (and Dymatize Elite Whey) where you have whey isolate first followed by whey concentrate. The good quality stuff.

We're huge fans of the chocolate peanut butter flavor on this one. As protein prices keep dropping, we're looking for $7.00/lb before we hit everyone up with email alerts on this one.

Jay Cutler Total Isolate Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 4.1 Lbs. – Only Cookies and Cream)
Go to Store

Comment: This is exactly what it says - a pure whey protein isolate from Jay Cutler (brought to you by BPI Sports) - Normally it's a pretty good price, but when it's on BOGO, it's an insane offering!!

Controlled Labs STIMino Discount
(Energy Amino, 60 Servings)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: Need a light pre workout or some cheap energy aminos for a late-night workout? Then this deal is for you!

STIMino has 125mg caffeine and 2.5g leucine per scoop, alongside 1.5g betaine and 1g taurine.

Muscle Pharm Combat Powder Discount
(Protein Powder, 10 Lbs. – Only Vanilla)
Go to Store

Comment: Combat Powder is MusclePharm's flagship protein powder. Although we've had our differences with them, we love how you can look up each batch of protein on their MPSSI lab test website and see that it is a legit 25g protein with *added* free form amino acids - not amino acid spiked.

So when it's at $7.75/lb or less, you'll see it here on the hot deals page!

Controlled Labs Venture Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: Controlled Labs Venture Bars are 100% all natural -- no artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors -- so given that there's no sugar or sucralose, they're not too bad! You can watch Sandy's Venture Bar Review on YouTube - microwaving them definitely does the trick!

This deal brings them to close to $1.00/bar, and each one has 20g protein, so check them out for a quick naturally-sweetened snack

MuscleTech Platinum 100% Iso Whey Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 1.78 Lbs. – Only Gourmet Milk Chocolate, Peanut Butter Chocolate Twist, Vanilla Ice Cream, Strawberry Shortcake)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store

Comment: Pure isolate under $10/lb? YES. But when you can get the *unbelievable* Peanut Butter Chocolate Twist flavor for that cheap?! YES!!

Lactose intolerant users who are looking for a new protein, this is the deal!

BPI Sports ISO-HD Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 4.9 Lbs. – Only Peanut Butter Candy Bar, Cookies & Cream, Vanilla Cookie, Chocolate Brownie, S'Mores)
(Buy 1 Get 1 50% OFF)
Go to Store

Comment: ISO-HD is a pure isolate with just Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Hydrolysate as its protein sources - great for lactose sensitive/intolerant users.

If you can get it for under $10/lb, you're in deal mode, but sometimes it takes a BOGO or a B2G1 to get to that point. So it might only be worth it if you've already sampled it!

MRI Black Powder Ultra Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 20 Servings – Only Watermelon)
Go to Store

Comment: Black Powder Ultra is a fairly "standard" pre workout energy supplement for users who are looking for a good deal and nothing over the top or ridiculous stimulants.

Its label lists forty "1/2 scoop" servings, but we show it as 20 true servings. So if it's under $10, it hits the deals page at under $0.50/workout. More energy and focus than pumps here.

BODYSTRONG 100% Whey Protein Isolate - Natural Discount
(Natural Protein Powder, 5 Lbs. – Only Vanilla)
Go to Store

Comment: Any time a pure whey protein isolate can be found for less than $10/lb, we're excited.

Since this is naturally flavored, it might not taste as good as the normal stuff.

Ultimate Nutrition Prostar 100% Whey Protein Discount
(Whey Protein, 10 Lbs. – Only Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Cream)
Go to Store

Comment: Now here's a protein deal! Good news: this deal gets you a TON of protein -- at least 50g per dollar -- and the quality looks high with whey isolate is the first ingredient and no spiking.

The bad news: the taste gets mixed reviews - chocolate seems to do well, but Cookies & Cream rates awfully.

Neogenix Velocity 3.0 Discount
(Fat Burner, 60 Capsules)
Go to Store

Comment: A price war has broken out on the simple yet effective Velocity 3.0. Two capsules will get you 250mg caffeine and 500mg ALCAR (Acetyl L-Carnitine), the carnitine for focus and endurance!

Muscle Warfare Napalm Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 45 Servings – Only Watermelon)
Go to Store

Comment: We're not going to lie, this formula is basically total proprietary nonsense. But if you want a cheap energy drink with at least some aminos inside, this deal isn't too bad. Just don't expect next-level workouts.

Dymatize Elite XT Discount
(Protein Powder, 4 Lbs. – Only Banana Nut, Rich Vanilla, Rich Chocolate, Fudge Brownie)
Go to Store

Comment: With Elite XT, you get 40g protein per dollar once it drops a bit under $28. With MCTs (which are more stable), it won't go bad as soon as other products with fats added.

Who wants to try the banana nut flavor?

BODYSTRONG 100% Whey Protein - Natural Discount
(Natural Protein Powder, 5 Lbs.)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a naturally flavored protein, so there's no artificial sweeteners and might taste a touch bitter if the stevia isn't done right.

But once it's under $40, you get more than 40g protein per dollar. Under $35 and the deal starts looking really good, as it's going to expire in a few months.

(Whey Protein, 4.4 Lbs.)
Go to Store

If you like fruity flavored protein, then check it out because this is the brand that ruled that market for years.

iForce Maximize Intense Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 45 Servings)
Go to Store

Comment: This is a very strong stimulant-based product, but some of the stores might also have the DMAA version which would be even stronger!

What Makes a Hot Deal?

We're picky about our hot deals. Here's how we decide:

Some General Rules

  • Good products only

    The product must be at least decent. It might not be our favorite, or have the cleanest profile, but it can't be a bad product, or one from a brand we don't trust.

  • Exceptions: Highly trusted, national brands

    Those of you who know us from our YouTube channel know that we're pretty stubborn. But there are exceptions to the list below...

    For instance, if a brand like Optimum Nutrition, a major leader in protein, has a deal that's close to our thresholds, we'll probably put it up there. We trust them, and you typically don't see much variation on their prices.

Rules based upon product category:

  1. Protein: $7.50/lb of decent quality protein

    Right now, the going retail rate is almost always over $10/lb of protein. So when we find it for less than $7.50, it's a hot deal.

    However, a pound of protein isn't always a pound of protein. If we see that there's a ton of sugar or other carbs added to the mix, we'll either ignore the product or increase our scrutiny.

    If you learn just one thing from this page, it is this: NEVER pay retail for protein!! These deals come up more often than you'd think, so be patient!

    What about amino acid spiking?

    Furthermore, some brands engage in a practice known as "amino acid spiking". This means that you might not be getting as much actual dietary protein as you think, since they are adding extra cheap amino acids (usually taurine, glycine, glutamine, and creatine) but adding those to the protein number.

    If we see this, we'll warn you, and if it looks bad, it won't end up on this page (nor will it end up anywhere on the top of our protein powder category lists).

  2. Unflavored Creatine: 5 cents a day ($0.01 per gram of creatine)

    Creatine is crazy cheap anymore. When it comes to our dealspotting, 5 cents per day ($10 for 1000g) is where we get interested.

    If it's a product that has flavoring and extra goodies, we'll raise this threshold, but since creatine is so cheap, we're definitely not into the creatines that cost you in the upwards of $0.50/day. That's wasted money for anyone on a budget.

  3. Pre Workouts: $0.50 per solid workout

    Pre workout supplements are all over the map when it comes to pricing. For some products, 1 scoop is really all you need. For others, you need "3 servings" to feel anything.

    We don't believe in ever spending more than a dollar to get you going for a workout. So when it comes to the hot deals page, it's got to be a strong workout at half that cost, on sale from its regular deal.

  4. Protein Bars: $1.00/bar

    Most protein bars are glorified crap, so keep that in mind. You're typically going to see bars from $2-3.

    To make it onto this page, it needs to have at least 15g protein (but preferably over 20g), and cost under a dollar per bar. Even then you should look at the ingredients and macros and decide if it makes sense.

  5. RTD Protein Shakes: $1.00/shake

    Much like protein bars, these are typically tubs of junk, but they're handy to have around when you get them cheap enough. $1.00 each will start to get our attention.

  6. Multivitamins: Case by Case Basis

    It's too hard to say what will make it as a hot deal for a multivitamin, mainly because they differ so much from each other, and so many of them are weak and underdosed.

    In this case, we'll just be looking out for a crazy price drop where one store has a far lesser price than its competitors. We'll then look at the ingredient profile and determine if it looks like anything special.

    We'd like to keep it under $0.20/day or so to be a hot deal here.

  7. Intra-Workout Supplements / BCAA Powders: $0.50/workout

    We love intra workouts, and we review them frequently on our YouTube channel. That said, we're the first to admit that they're not first-tier supplements, and they're not worth buying if you're on a budget. They're also not necessary for most typical weightlifters.

    So we are pricing these at roughly $0.50/serving for a flavored BCAA supplement. After checking deals for a few weeks, we have not had many of these deals come by, but we're sticking to the price for now. You shouldn't have to pay $1.00 to stay "hydrated" during a workout. $0.67-$0.75/workout is normal... so $0.50/workout is our hot deal threshold.

  8. Glutamine: $Joke

    Glutamine is next to useless. 1000g at $2.00 might capture our attention.

  9. Fat Burners and Thermogenics: $0.25/capsule / $0.50/serving

    Like pre workouts, this one is tough because the strengths and dosages required varies.

    In general, when we see a 60 capsules for $15, that's starting to look like a good deal. But it depends on the serving size and what's inside, so we'll explain ourselves when we add one of these.

  10. Fish Oil Softgels and other Essential Fatty Acids: ~$0.33/g DHA

    This is a tough one, but when it comes to fish oil, we're most interested in the DHA content, followed by the EPA content.

    At around $0.33 per gram of DHA, you'll start getting our attention. This may go up or down depending on the rest of the formula, such as a product with a lot of EPA in it as well.

  11. Liquid Essential Fatty Acids: $1.00/oz

    When it comes to the liquid fish oils and other EFAs, $1/oz seems to be the best cutoff.

    We're not major fans of these oils because they typically taste awful, and if you find a hot deal, there's a good chance it's expiring soon, which means it might go rancid sooner than you like.

  12. Snacks and other such nonsense: ~$1.00

    As we write this, there is a $0.95 bag of trail mix available at a store right now. We're not going to tell you to go get it all on its own, but if you're already buying from that store, you might as well toss a few of these in.
