(Synephrine, 180 Capsules at DPS Nutrition)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.
Comment: 30mg straight synephrine for under 2 cents per capsule?! That's an insane steal and great to add to any weight loss or workout stack that doesn't already have it!

Most readers know we're huge SNS fans, especially for single-ingredient supplements that most companies don't sell.
Larabar Lara Bar Discount
(Gluten Free Bar, 16 Bars – Only Blueberry Muffin, Cherry Pie at AllStarHealth)

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

(BCAA Powder, 90 Servings – Only Fruit Smash, Grape Bubblegum, Green Apple, Sour Batch Kids at Muscle and Strength)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
Comment: YES! These candy-flavored aminos are simple yet ridiculously delicious! MAN is taking over the industry with these flavors.

Our favorite is Fruittles (Skittles), but if you're a sour fan, you must try Sour Batch (Sour Patch Kids). Heck, try one of each, these are THAT good.

No artificial colors so you can sip on em all day without staining your teeth. They hit the deals page at $0.30/serving.
Muscle Maxx MuscleMaxx Protein Bar Discount
(Junk Food, 12 Bars at i-Supplements.com)
Go to Store
Comment: Stats: 308 calories; 25g carbs, 15g protein, 16g fat! We haven't tried these, but if you're bulking, you can't beat a bar under $1.00/each!
Gatorade Whey Protein Recover Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Mint Chocolate Crunch, Peanut Butter Chocolate at Amazon)
Go to Store
Comment: Gatorade isn't known for protein bars, but these are reviewing pretty well. Under a dollar a bar, you know it's time to hit the page.

20g protein and a ridiculous 41g carbs (29g sugar!) and 13g fat yields a massive 360 calories. If you're on a sugar-friendly bulk, step on up.
EVLution Nutrition 100% Isolate Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 2 Lbs. at Bodybuilding.com)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!

CytoSport Muscle Milk RTD Discount
(RTD Protein Shake, 12 11 Oz. Cartons at Amazon)
Go to Store
Comment: We get excited anytime you can get $1.00/bottle. The Black Friday / Cyber Monday price we're seeing here is downright ridiculous!

Stock up alongside the other GNC-based deals we've found today.
AllMax Nutrition IsoFlex Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. – Only Birthday Cake with Sprinkles at Muscle and Strength)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
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.
Nutrition 53 Lean1 Zero Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 1 Lb. – Only Chocolate at AllStarHealth)
Go to Store
Comment: The 53 in Nutrition53 stands for the number of Bill Romanowski, 4-time sportsball champion. This is an ultra-clean whey protein isolate at an ultra-low price, but make sure the expiration date is OK!
ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 5 Bars – Only Chocolate Almond Raisin at AllStarHealth)
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!
Ultimate Nutrition IsoCool Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. – Only Juicy Apple at AllStarHealth)
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.
Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion Discount
(Pre Workout Supplement, 30 Servings – Only Pink Lemonade at Amazon)
Go to Store
Comment: This is a two-scooper (135mg caffeine and 1.5g creatine per scoop, for instance), but at this price you have yourself a cheap little energy drink with some extras that can plug a few supplemental gaps.
Vega Protein Bar Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Salted Caramel at Supplement Hunt)
Go to Store
Comment: Vegans need *way* more protein than they can get in naturally, and Vega is one of the OG vegan companies to help with that. Each of these has 20g protein led by Pea Protein and later followed by brown rice protein.
Think Thin Bars Discount
(Soy Protein Bar, 10 Bars – Only Chocolate Fudge at AllStarHealth)
Go to Store
Comment: If you're cool with soy protein (followed by dairy proteins), then soya up to this one with 20g protein per bar! There's 8g fat and 24g carbs (with 12g sugar alcohol), so this one's probably best for a dirtier bulk and not necessarily those who are "thinking thin".
PR Nutrition PR Bar Discount
(Weight Loss Bar, 12 Bars – Only Chocolate Peanut at AllStarHealth)
Go to Store
Comment: This has some soy protein in it, but for less than $1/bar, you get 15g protein, 22g carbs, and 6g fat (200 calories total).
Ultimate Nutrition Prostar 100% Whey Protein Discount
(Whey Protein, 10 Lbs. at AllStarHealth)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
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.
Ultimate Nutrition Iso-Sensation 93 Discount
(Whey Protein Isolate, 5 Lbs. at AllStarHealth)
(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!!

*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!

(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
Comment: This is a straight-up 2:1:1 BCAA powder with 6g per serving and nothing else. If we see it for under a quarter per serving, then it's a great buy! Sip on it throughout the day anytime you're between high-protein meals, as well as during your workout.

(Pre Workout Drink, 12 Bottles – Only Blackberry Lemonade, Fruit Punch at Supplement Hunt)
Go to Store A coupon is available! Click to see the coupon code.
Comment: This is a seriously well-dosed, legitimate pre workout supplement all in a single bottle. Possibly the first one we'd seen dosed *this* well. Snag some up, beats energy drinks any day!
ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars Discount
(Protein Bar, 12 Bars – Only Double Dark Chocolate at AllStarHealth)
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!

Lactose intolerant users who are looking for a new protein, this is the deal!
Pro Supps DNPX Discount
(Fat Burner, 45 Capsules at Muscle and Strength)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
Comment: Strong fat burner, but the proprietary blend is a bit annoying since we have no clue what's going on inside.
Cellucor CN3 Discount
(Creatine Nitrate, 50 Servings at Muscle and Strength)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
Comment: CN3 is nothing but 3g of high-powered creatine nitrate for incredible pumps to add to nearly *any* pre workout (so long as it doesn't already have any nitrates!!

We're big fans of nitrate pumps around here, and if you agree and you can get it for around $0.33/serving or less, we strongly recommend giving this a shot.
Pro Supps MyShake Discount
(Protein Powder, 4 Lbs. – Only Graham Cracker, Snickerdoodle, Triple Chocolate Fudge at Muscle and Strength)
(Buy 1 Get 1 FREE)
Go to Store This is a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE offer!
Comment: Another supplement in the popular ProSupps "My" series that's a bit looser on the macros, this one has 5g carbs and 5g fat in each scoop, so huge flavor is expected.

At $7.50/lb you'll get 40g protein per dollar, and at $6.80/lb we fire up the email press since it's 45g protein per dollar there.
ANSI Pro-Series Whey 25 Discount
(Whey Protein, 5 Lbs. – Only Cookies & Cream, Rich Chocolate at DPS Nutrition)
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.

BODYSTRONG 100% Whey Protein - Natural Discount
(Natural Protein Powder, 5 Lbs. – Only Strawberry at AllStarHealth)
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 $30, you get more than 40g protein per dollar. Under $27.50 and the deal starts looking really good, as it's going to expire in a few months.

(Natural Protein Powder, 10 Lbs. at AllStarHealth)
Go to Store
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.
