Iherb or vitacost?

Postby smurf » Wed Jul 06, 2011 9:57 am

Where do you normally buy your kids supplement such as vitamins, fish oil, probiotics, etc?

I used iherb, but find that their prices are higher than vitacost for a lot of items even though their shipping charge is only $4.99. Vitacost shipping is $6.99. They ship to you direct so no com gateway, etc charges.

What do you think of their service?

I join spree. Iherb seems cheaper for shipping and cost reasonable.

Iherb shipping is lower but items priced are higher. Actually, iherb and vitacost shipping differ by $2 only, but sometimes, their products prices differ by few dollars. So end up, can save more if order from vitacost.

I have bought from iHerb a couple of times now. Their shipping is very fast - 4 days to Singapore, which leads me to suspect that their warehouse is somewhere in Asia. How much shipping time does Vitacost take?

iHerb's customer service is not that good, though. I called one time for some info (not a recommendation of any product) and they assumed I was asking about specific product recoommendations. They just replied that they cannot advise customers. That was not very friendly, imo.

You have some super ideas! Perhaps I would take into account trying this myself. Thanks

I am not sure about the lower prices. After reading this thread, I checked out the prices of some of my regular products on Vitacost. The prices were exactly the same as what I had paid on iHerb.
