FinaFlex Clear Protein Discount
(Protein Powder, 5.1 Lbs. – Only Double Chocolate Brownie)
Go to Store

Comment: CLEAR Protein?! This is actually a protein powder that's great for baking, mixing into smoothies, or getting crazy with your own unique creations. There are a few flavors, but even the unflavored one *is sweetened* (with sucralose and ace-k) and thickened for you already.

Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: We have THREE deals going on from PurAthlete thanks to a 67% off coupon!

Scivation Quake 10.0 Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 20 Servings)
Go to Store

Comment: This might be a glitch, so if you want a *fully-loaded* pre workout and then some for under $1.00 / true serving, get in on this ASAP! Scivation did not joke around when they formulated Quake 10.0!

Shout-out to AfroPope in our forum for the huge find - join the forum and thank the Pope!

Ultimate Nutrition Protein Isolate Discount
(Wheat Protein, 3 Lbs. – Only Vanilla Creme)
Go to Store

Comment: Note: This is a WHEAT protein isolate product, not a whey protein (despite what some labels say). This is vegan-friendly stuff, but is not for gluten sensitive people.

We're hot dealing it at $7/lb or less -- buy it for your vegan buddy so he stops falling into sewer grates!

CytoSport Monster Whey Discount
(Whey Protein Concentrate, 4.4 Lbs. – Only Chocolate)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: From the company that brought you Muscle Milk, Monster Whey is a pure whey concentrate formula, so this is only for those who can handle lactose well.

When it's under $6.50 per pound, you're getting over 45g protein per dollar - solid steal!

Cellucor C4 Original Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 90 Servings)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: The original C4 is insanely popular, and now you can get it at a nearly all-time low price - well under 50 cents per scoop and then some!

Optimum Nutrition BCAA 5000 Discount
(BCAA Powder, 60 Servings)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: The flavored version of ON's BCAA powder. Rumor is that the flavor's not so great though.

Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard Discount
(Whey Protein, 10 Lbs. – Only Double Rich Chocolate)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: This is an extremely solid price on the #1 selling and most 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 $8.25 per pound or less. If you see it here, then it's time to think about buying.

PurAthlete Power+ Discount
(Creatine Magnesium Chelate, 99 Grams)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: The second of three deals from PurAthlete using our 67% off coupon!

Power+ is a naturally-sweetened magnesium creatine chelate supplement that provides creatine and plenty of high-absorption magnesium. If you're magnesium-deficient, taking this before bed is a great way to get some improved sleep and reduce anxiety.

For whatever reason, there isn't much solo MCC on the market right night, so here it is.

Optimum Nutrition Protein Cake Bites Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Chocolate Frosted Donut, Red Velvet, Chocolate Dipped Cherry)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: These things are the real deal! Each "bar" has three little cake bites that are soft and delicious -- Mike and Robert reviewed ON's Cake Bites and were way impressed.

In the era of "me too" bars, these stand out for sure!

(Buy 1 Get 4 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 4 FREE offer!

Comment: This natural test booster hasn't done so well, but it could be useful to some at this price. Could be good for beginners to the category.

Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: Clean Protein has an open protein label (9g whey concentrate, 8g whey isolate, 6g casein, 6g milk protein isolate), which should bring a very smooth texture.. and their flavors here are wildly interesting!

(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Cookies & Cream, Chocolate Coconut)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: Combat Crunch Bars have evolved over time (see old review here and new review here) and occasionally you find a great deal on a site like Amazon. 20g protein and about 210 calories.

MuscleTech Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite Discount
(Fat Burner, 30 Servings – Only Fruit Fusion)
Go to Store

Comment: MuscleTech's popular fat burning powder drink has been in price-plummet mode - we're not sure why, but at this deal, it's well worth a try for dieters.

Note that each scoop has 270mg caffeine, so this stuff is no joke. We'd 3/4-scoop it to get 40 servings out of this.

Pure Protein Plus Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 6 Bars – Only Cookies & Cream)
Go to Store

Comment: Another protein bar deal! These have 20g protein and 24g carbs (much from IMO - not a true fiber, but some soluble corn fiber too)... and no sucralose but stevia instead!

ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 5 Bars – Only Chocolate Almond Raisin)
Go to Store

Comment: We love protein bars that are under $1.00/bar and over 15g protein. This one has 14g protein, so it's worth seeing if the price is under $10 for 12 bars - which this one is!

Update: We've now tried these, and WOW the cinnamon roll flavor is INCREDIBLE. This deal is very underrated!

Dymatize ISO-100 Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 1.6 Lbs. – Only Smooth Banana)
Go to Store

Comment: ISO-100 is Dymatize's pure whey protein isolate that's won numerous awards left and right lately. It's especially great for dieters and lactose intolerant users.

If we find it under $10.00/lb, it'll end up on this page. The sales are often for the pina colada flavor, which is like a high-end coconut flavor that our Facebook followers rate highly.

CytoSport Muscle Milk Discount
(Protein Powder, 2.47 Lbs. – Only Vanilla Creme)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Muscle Pharm BCAA 3:1:2 Discount
(BCAA, 30 Servings – Only Blue Raspberry, Watermelon)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: When popular BCAA powders / intraworkouts / sports drinks are available at $0.30/serving, it's worth a look.

MusclePharm has had BCAA 3:1:2 capsules out for a while, but the powder is new, and so far reviewing well.

Ultimate Nutrition IsoCool Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. – Only Juicy Apple, Chocolate Creme, Cherry Berry, Peach Parfait)
Go to Store

Comment: IsoCool is an extremely clean whey isolate (23g protein in a 26g scoop), and has been one of the most trusted isolates for over a decade. This one's known for its fruit flavors, which keep it on the lighter side.

AllMax Nutrition IsoFlex Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. – Only Chocolate Mint Supreme)
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!

The older tubs had some amino acid spiking going on, but looking at the amino acid profile, it was still a pretty high quality protein isolate, especially given this price.

MAN Sports Game Day Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 30 Servings – Only Blue Bombsicle)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: It's GAME DAY! Now discontinued, this is one of the first DMHA pre workout supplements... and the only one that actually passed a lab test for the real-deal ingredient when six "DMHA" supplements were put to the test.

This is your last chance to get your game on, don't miss out!

Iron Addicts Sleeve Buster Discount
(Stimulant-Free Pre Workout Supplement, 30 Servings – Only Watermelon)
Go to Store

Comment: We're sad that CT's Iron Addicts Brand is going away, but you can jump on this stim-free pump product at quite a nice deal while it's around!

BSN Endorush Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 12 Cans – Only Citrus, Blue Raz, Fruit Punch)
Go to Store

Comment: One of BSN's most unappreciated products, Endorush cans bring a serious 350mg caffeine, 25mg teacrine, 1.5g beta alanine, and 0g sugar!

SNS Creatine Monohydrate Discount
(Creatine Monohydrate, 1200 Grams)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

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

Iron Addicts Goliath Discount
(BCAA Powder, 30 Servings – Only Blue Raspberry)
Go to Store

Comment: Goliath is CT Fletcher's intra workout / BCAA supplement. We like that it goes after hydration and has some 'natural' stuff in pomegranate and tart cherry.

...but we don't like that the brand didn't work out and it's going to be gone once these are all sold out!

AI Sports Nutrition Magic Matcha Discount
(Green Tea, 28 Servings)
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!

Premier Nutrition Premier Protein Bar Discount
(Protein Bar, 5 Bars – Only Chocolate Peanut Butter)
Go to Store

Comment: At 30g protein and 270 calories per bar, these pack a punch. The issue is that the primary source of protein is soy protein isolate (followed by whey isolate then concentrate), which we're cool with, but not in *too* heavy of doses. One bar per day is fine.

Your carb/binding sources are Glycerin, Sugar, Hydrolyzed Gelatin, and later down, inulin.

Watch Mike and CJ's Premier Protein Bar Review -- long story short, chocolate mint is phenomenal, peanut butter is pretty good, and salted caramel is almost... tasteless!

NLA for Her Whey Lean Protein Bar Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Maple Cinnamon Roll)
Go to Store

Comment: More protein bars! These have 20g protein (nearly all from whey/dairy) and use a mix of fiber and sugar alcohols to balance out the binding agent carbs

Scivation Xtend Perform Discount
(BCAA Powder, 44 Servings – Only Mango)
Go to Store

Comment: Xtend Perform is the version with the PeakO2 Cordyceps, all discussed in better detail here.

We did a review of Xtend Perform and while the cordyceps brings the taste down a bit, Mike notices lower heart rate when using it consistently - pretty crazy!

Pure Protein Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 50g Bars – Only Dark Chocolate Coconut)
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, $0.95/bar qualifies for this page.

Update: We finally reviewed Pure Protein Bars and they TOTALLY passed the test!

Pro Supps PS Isolate Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 4 Lbs. – Only Vanilla)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: ProSupps' pure isolate keeps it super simple here - 20g protein from whey isolate in a 25g scoop with basically no fat and no carbs. Clean Isolate fans may want to stock up here!

New Whey Multi Pro Whey Discount
(Protein Powder, 5 Lbs. – Only Vanilla Cream)
Go to Store

Comment: Well here's a BIG bucket of protein for a small price! Note that we have a little bit of amino acid spiking going on with the added glycine, but at this price, we're willing to deal with it. Make it a heaping scoop to compensate.

Primarily whey concentrate, so not for the lactose-sensitive.

NoGii Super Protein Bars Discount
(Soy Protein Bar, 48 Bars)
Go to Store

Comment: These soy-powered bars are Elisabeth Hasselbeck's high-protein, gluten-free line. They taste good, but we wouldn't eat more than one per day to avoid consuming too much soy.

BODYSTRONG 100% Whey Protein Isolate Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 10 Lbs.)
Go to Store

Comment: AllStarHealth's store brand protein isolate. It reviews well and is a good deal when under $9/lb for the lactose intolerant out there.

ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Fudge Graham, Cinnamon Roll)
Go to Store

Comment: We love protein bars that are under $1.00/bar and over 15g protein. This one has 14g protein, so it's worth seeing if the price is under $10 for 12 bars - which this one is!

Update: We've now tried these, and WOW the cinnamon roll flavor is INCREDIBLE. This deal is very underrated!

BPI Sports PUMP-HD Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 50 Servings)
Go to Store

Comment: Are you ready for HIGH-DEFINITION pumps! Then if you grab enough of this extraordinarily unique stimulant-free pump pre workout supplement, you just might get them! With this deal, you're near or under $0.30/serving!

Gaspari Nutrition IsoFusion Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 1.6 Lbs. – Only Milk Chocolate)
Go to Store

Comment: Pure whey protein isolate (and we're big fans of this one) at under $9.50/lb? IN!

BPI Sports Best Protein Discount
(Whey Protein, 3 Lbs.)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

Comment: When we can get this at $6.50/lb, we're in hot deal territory. We haven't tried this, but were big fans of Whey-HD, and this has a few flavors getting even better reviews!!

Note: Not to be confused with our Best Protein Powder Buyer's Guide!

Premier Nutrition Premier Protein Bar Discount
(Protein Bar, 6 Bars – Only Yogurt Peanut Crunch)
Go to Store

Comment: At 30g protein and 270 calories per bar, these pack a punch. The issue is that the primary source of protein is soy protein isolate (followed by whey isolate then concentrate), which we're cool with, but not in *too* heavy of doses. One bar per day is fine.

Your carb/binding sources are Glycerin, Sugar, Hydrolyzed Gelatin, and later down, inulin.

Watch Mike and CJ's Premier Protein Bar Review -- long story short, chocolate mint is phenomenal, peanut butter is pretty good, and salted caramel is almost... tasteless!

Cellucor C4 Sport Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 30 Servings – Only Blue Raspberry)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code. This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

Comment: C4 Sport is the lower-cost C4 pre workout that you'll find in grocery stores and Walmart and the like... but we actually like it for the intended demographic because it comes with a solid dose of creatine!

At this price you're getting a good number of workouts for the money.

ANSI Pro-Series Whey 25 Discount
(Whey Protein, 5 Lbs. – Only Rich Chocolate)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.

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.

(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

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

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.

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.
