This post is not sponsored, I just wanted to share my thoughts on Thrive Market after placing a few orders. If you don’t know what Thrive Market is, it is a online market/grocery store that has lots of organic, GMO free foods and allows you to shop by your dietary needs whether you are keto, gluten free, vegan, etc. They have filtered by 70+ dietary and lifestyle needs.
The annual membership costs $59.95 (or $5/month) and is billed once yearly. If you opt to do a monthly membership instead, you’ll pay $9.95 per month. You’ll get free shipping on your first order over $25, plus all orders $49 or more.
If you use my link here, you can save 25% off your first order and sometimes get a free item. I will get a credit to my account if you join, so a win win.
They claim that their members save an average of $32 on every order. Plus, if you have an annual membership and you don’t make back your annual membership fee in savings, they will give you store credit. I am going to say that in my experience so far, they have the lowest prices I have seen on many of the items they offer, or the same price as some stores. The thing for me, is that most of these brands are very hard to find in stores around my house. We have a Whole Foods, but it is about a 35-40 minute drive from me, and I just am not going to make that trip on a regular basis. This is much more convenient!!!
My initial impression is that the items come packaged very well. I was impressed by how everything was separated and wrapped. I didn’t have crushed bags of chips or broken glass bottles, which was nice. None of the canned items had dents in them…which is more than I can say for my grocery deliveries from local stores.
Above are some of my recent hauls. As you can see, there are plenty of repeat items…and a few new each time. Some of my must haves are the organic coffee, the brown rice thin stackers, Whisps (which are $2 cheaper on Thrive than at Publix), plantain chips, chomps, Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers and Mary’s Gone Crackers Real Thins. The only thing I have not loved, was the HU pizza crackers. Maybe I was spoiled by pizza Goldfish? I don’t know. Not a fan of those, but it is literally the only thing I have ordered out of all my orders that I did not absolutely love.
It has been a great resource for me to find healthier alternatives for things that Zoe likes to snack on. She is obsessed with this Pipcorn. I feel much better about giving her this, than the orange cheese balls from Target! We have really liked the Alaffia shampoo and body wash for her as well. It smells like delicious strawberries and we haven’t seen any bad reactions on her very sensitive skin. That hazelnut butter HU bar was YUMMMMM.
I have also loved their selection of the harder to find items like cacao nibs, cacao powder and some flour substitutes. They have a lot of healthier candy options as well.
The Thrive brand has been great for basic pantry staples like like olive oil, almond milk, organic canned beans, coffee, etc. On my next order, I plan to try their collagen and some other vitamins and supplements and I will report back. Chris really liked box of Ultima hydrate that I got on our last order. He said it was perfect for a day he wasn’t feeling his best after consuming a few adult beverages the night before.
Also, for every paid Thrive Market membership, they match it with a free one for a low-income family, student, teacher, veteran, or first responder. Which I think is awesome.
Have you thought about trying Thrive Market? If you are a member, let me know some of your favorites to order! Drop me any questions you might have, I am no expert….but I may be able to help.
