    Default Where do you buy your supplements?

    Hey peeps,

    I've been buying my supplements from bodybuilding.com for a couple years now. I've only really compared prices with GNC and Popeyes. GNC is usually much more expensive and Popeyes usually a little more. Anyone have better websites and/or store fronts in cgy?

    I usually buy:
    Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protien
    C4 Pre Workout
    BPI Sports Amino Acids or Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy
    (Have creatine but think I'll stop using after this bottle)

    I used to buy from bodybuilding but the stupid exchange rate makes me not want to buy from there. So I go to samson's supplements. They do a big sale on the first tuesday of every month and the prices are actually pretty good. I've been buying Ultimate Nutrition Iso Sensation which goes for $85 on svn supplement but is $70 there.

    2.2kg/5lb tub of Optimum

    84.99 at BB
    89.99 @ Canada Supplements

    Site I use:
    84.99 @ Vitamart.ca, buy 2 get $10 off. Also ships stupid fast because I think it's Edmonton. There's also ridiculous amounts of coupons that happen once a while if you are subscribed to their email. Think there's also a first time subscriber discount. There's also plenty of freebies (i think I have 4 of their shakers lol)

    I used to go to Popeyes several years back. I bought my last round of supplements from Supplement King in Beacon Hill.

    I normally weight till bodybuilding.com has a sale and buy 3-4 at a time to make it worth it. then just reorder at the next sale. tends to work out well.

    Protein I just grab the combat powder at Costco and wait till the $10 coupon comes out. again every 3-4 months and buy a bunch at a time.

    I always go to Samsons monthly sales and grab what I need, if I forget or run out of something before their sale then I check bodybuilding.
    Also, can't go wrong with Combat Powder from Costco if you're running low on protein.. although I still prefer iso-sensation and try to stock up when Samsons has their sale.

    Muscle Pharm is junk protein powder... look it up

    I use a combination of bb.com, Popeyes and a new place I discovered called Reflex Supplements, they carry some items that I haven't found other places here

    Amazon, but I only bother with creatine, and whey. For pre-workout I just pop a caffine tablet, which I also buy off amazon.

    I find svncanada.com has good prices if you wait for the sales and deals that you get emailed to you. Otherwise their regular prices can be a little pricey.

    Onnit.com for althetic/cognitive performance. Not alot there for bulking/body building, but great for vitamins and supplements. And their hemp protein is delicious.

    A little pricey at times, but they're stuff is very high quality IMO.

    I plan on going to Samson's today for their "First Tuesday of the Month Sale".

    I don't get off work until 6 PM so probably be there around 6:30-6:45. When do they close? And if they're open is the good stuff usually gone by the evening? Or do they have a shit ton of stock?

    +1 for Reflex Supplements, owner is a cool guy and their prices are pretty fair.

    I don't find this sale to be all that its hyped up to be. Its maybe comparative from a local seller, but not compared to online alternatives.

    I'm about the same in that I wait for a sale from Costco/Bodybuilding.com, but lately my protein go to has been Canadian Protein. I'm convinced. Great pricing, and excellent flavorings.

    Is that protein reduced lactose? Their description doesn't mention about the lactose content.

    I usually go to fitshop.ca as they have 20% off sales now and then, typically around big holidays, like this weekend. The prices can be cheaper than most anything local, some things are cheaper than bodybuilding.com.

    But based on this thread, my go-to protein is now going to be Canadian Protein. Ordered three protein samples and some other supplements. The proteins were great tasting--original chocolate, cappuccino, and chocolate milkshake--and mixed really well. At $80 for 11 lbs of whey concentrate (24g protein per 30g serving), I'm sold.

    Next time you are Samson's, look at the expiration date of the product you plan on purchasing. More then likely it has expired or will expire in the next month. On a few occasions I found that they would try an wipe the date clean. I know that this was the case for ON Whey, can't comment about any of their other products.
