GNC sucks!

They're gold membership now costs money and you only get a 20% discount at the beginning of the month? It's been a few years since I was a member, but in 2006 the membership was free and it was a 50% discount for your first purchase every month.

I blame Obama.

If you buy shit at GNC, you must be a baller. They have the most ridiculous markup of anywhere. Go to a vitamin shoppe if you have to go to a walk in store, or 24 hr fitness even.

I can't understand how that company is even moderately successful. Proof there are too many suckers in this world.

The only reason they are successful is that they stock the crap I USE, i haTe going to vitamin shoppe or vitamin world and they dont have what i need when i need it, im willing to pay that markup just to get what i need.

If you wanted to actually plan ahead, you'd save 50%+ by ordering it online. Dunno what your supplement consumption is, but that's a good deal of money to me.

If GNC is the only place carring your supps you may want to research some other options.

It used to not be that bad. Like I said, in 2006 I'd get 50% off my first purchase of the month. I've never been a big supplement guy, but I'd go in there and buy a big ass thing of protein that would last me a month for like $25.

Anyone know where I can get the 42g myoplex protein shakes for cheap, online? I prefer the chocolate fudge, but I'm sure the vanilla is fine. Not sure about the strawberry.

Sams has a pretty good deal, but I think they only have the 17g per serving mix. I could be wrong, and maybe just missed it.

$25 for 12 of them at Sam's. I have yet to beat that online.

They got the 42g, those are all I buy. They have the 23g low fat ones too. And the big 1 lb. bag of mix, which I hate.

They can be sporadic on the 42g ones though, sometimes they have a whole pallet of them, sometimes they got none.

Yeah, sams is your best bet. They arent that cheap online because shipping is a bitch on RTD's.
