Muscle Pharm Amino 1 Discount
Comment: We love intra workouts / BCAA sports drinks for under $0.33 per serving. The only Amino1 flavor we've reviewed was Cherry Limeade, and it was strong but delicious.
Core Nutritionals BCAA Discount
Comment: This is 60 servings of unflavored BCAAs in a 2:1:1 Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine ratio. If you're dieting and work out on an empty stomach, adding this to your pre workout or energy drink is a great idea.
CNP ProPeptide Discount
Comment: CNP's ProPeptide has been around for ages, but now we're a bit wiser to the "glutamine peptides" inside which may constitute a slight form of protein spiking. Under $7.00/lb and we're at 45g protein per dollar, but some of that protein may be just glutamine.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer Discount
Comment: Weight gainer time! We like this one because it's isolate-first, then has a real carbohydrate Blend from oat flour and then Carb10 pea starch and potato starch (only after that blend comes the matlodextrin).

At this price you're looking at deal territory on the protein *alone*, let alone all the carbs. Bulkers stock up!
Nutrex Lipo-6 RX Discount
Comment: This is one of the more aggressive fat burners in the Lipo-6 series with a hit of rauwolscine (alpha-yohimbine) at the end. Expect about 175mg caffeine per capsule plus another 100mg Theacrine. No joke at this price!
Controlled Labs Purple Wraath Discount
Comment: Purple Wraath is a BCAA/EAA/Sports Drink that's been around for quite a while - it has a 7g mix of EAAs (led by the 3 BCAAs), but to top that off, there's also a 2.7g endurance-boosting blend led by beta alanine!

This was the cool BCAA drink before BCAAs were cool.
Optimum Nutrition Opti-Bar Discount
Comment: Optimum Nutrition's late-to-the-party "me-too" IMO-based protein bar, reviews are meh but this hits your inbox when we find it under $0.90/bar for a cheap snack.

20g protein / 24g carbs / 7g fat. We blogged about it here.
PrimaForce Choline Bitartrate Discount
Comment: This is the stuff that gives you a boost of mental focus and clarity in a ton of popular supplements. Normally it's about 3x this price!

iForce Maximize Intense Discount
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! You'll need to check the store's label or ask them to see what they have here.

Atkins Advantage Ready-To-Drink Shakes Discount
Comment: The powders on this page are a better deal, but a convenient RTD shake under $1.00 each is worthy of consideration - this one has 15g protein, 5g carbs (1g sugar), and 9g fat.

Protein sources are Milk Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, and Whey Protein Concentrate.
ALR Chain'd Out Discount
Comment: Chain'd Out is a BCAA powder that comes in a 10g serving size, with 7g being malate-bonded BCAAs, and another 1.8g coming from Alanine, L-Theanine, and some herbals.

The malate bonds throw off our price calculations (it's not 7 full grams of straight BCAAs), so we'll give this a shot when it hits $0.35/serving.
Cellucor COR-Performance Whey Discount
Comment: Anytime you can get Cellucor's top-rated protein here for under $7.25/lb, it's worth a look!

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!
Optimum Nutrition Opti-Men Discount
Comment: Nearly everyone who buys Opti-Men is happy with it - this is a standard athlete's multivitamin that's passed the test of time.
MAN Sports Blockbuster Discount
Comment: It's a Blockbuster! With ~175mg caffeine per scoop and good doses of taurine and choline, this is solid "mainstream-friendly" pre workout available at a great price.
Dymatize Elite 100% Whey Discount
Comment: This is Dymatize's flagship protein powder. When you can get 5lbs of the good stuff here for under $32.50, it's into hot deal territory and nearly everybody loves it.
Balance Bar Balance Bars Discount
Comment: The original Balance Bar, popular for years and years, is still going strong with 14-15g protein (mostly from soy protein isolate) and plenty of vitamins and minerals in each bar.

When under $0.75/bar, this hits hot deal status every time.
Optimum Nutrition Protein Cake Bites Discount
Comment: These things are the real deal! Each "bar" has three little cake bites that are soft and delicious -- we were way impressed by these.

In the era of "me too" bars, these stand out for sure!
PEScience Select Protein Bar Discount
Comment: Some of the best and most underrated protein bars on the market, Select Protein Bars bring "THICC" taste that you can only expect from the incredible protein blend PEScience uses. This price doesn't come too often, so now's a good time to give them a shot.
CytoSport Muscle Milk Bars Discount
Comment: Muscle Milk Bars come in two series: "Red" and "Blue". They're similar so we put them all on the same page, but the Red Label bars are higher in calories.

If $0.95/bar, it's time for bulking season!
Clif Luna Bar Discount
Comment: At 9-12g protein per bar (coming from soy protein isolate), these go into hot deal mode when they're under $0.75/bar.
ANSI Pro-Series Whey 25 Discount
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. Lots of protein here.
Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard Discount
Comment: This is an extremely solid price on one of the best selling and most highly trusted protein on the market!

Seeing that it's so popular and well-respected, we are a touch more lenient about putting it on the deals page, shooting for $7.50 per pound or less. If you see it here, then it's time to think about buying.
BODYSTRONG 100% Casein Protein Discount
Comment: This is a house brand casein protein. Under about $41, it's 40g of protein per dollar.

If you're new to pure casein, it's THICK. Like 10oz per one scoop, great before bed.
Universal Ultra Whey Pro Discount
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!
Universal Ultra Whey Pro Discount
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!
Oh Yeah! Isolate Power Discount
Comment: Isolate Power is OhYeah's pure isolate, and if you see it at under $9.00/lb, you really have to consider it, especially if you're lactose sensitive!

OhYeah's protein powders are NSF Certified for Sport, so they are trusted for drug-tested athletes.

Don't forget to check out Oh Yeah! ONE Bars while you're at it - these are going to give Quest Bars a run for their money, and have a far better texture!
SportPharma Gain Max Discount
Comment: This is a weight gainer with 50g protein and 102g carbs per serving. It doesn't have added free form amino acids, so at this price, we're in hot deal territory based on the protein content alone. Worth risking if shipping's free!
ANSI Pro-Series Whey 25 Discount
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. Lots of protein here.

MuscleTech Mission 1 Bar Discount
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!
MuscleTech Protein Cookie Discount
Comment: This protein cookie is short-dated and has 18g protein yet 49g carbs and 9g fat, so it's far from a clean ratio... but if you're big on carbs, you can get in on the fun very cheap here!
BODYSTRONG 100% Whey Protein Isolate - Natural Discount
Comment: Any time a pure whey protein isolate can be found for less than $8.50/lb, we're excited.

Since this is naturally flavored, it might not taste as good as the normal stuff. The unflavored version is cool for fruit smoothies.

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.
