10 Days of Gluten-Free, Shopping Day 4

Buying store bought gluten-free products can be very expensive. Fortunately, if you know the best places to shop at, they don’t have to be this way! Although I try to buy locally whenever possible, I have found the best prices on many gluten-free staples I purchase and stock up on regularly are online. Many retailers online offer competitive prices and even greater discounts if you buy in bulk from them.
Here is a list of the online stores I have found to offer the most reasonable prices on gluten-free flours, grains, pastas, alternative sweeteners, BPA free products and much more:
-The Gluten Free Mall (but only under their Specials Section)
Personally, I buy most of the products I use the most with Amazon and iHerb and then compare prices between the two. Often iHerb has the best prices, but sometimes Amazon offers a stepper discount if you sign up for the subscribe and save option (which can be cancelled at anytime). Happy online shopping!

    I have used most of the stores you listed, but not all of them.  Thanks for a great list of online stores.

  3. Thanks for the list of stores, I can’t wait to check them out!!

    Awesome! Thanks for the list, I’ll be cruising them a lot in the months to come I think. :)

    Placed my first order with Vitacost yesterday. I usually order from Netrition (cheaper) but the order takes so long to get to me because they are quite far away. I’ll go look at iHerb. Hadn’t heard of them. Thanks!

    I just went GF two weeks ago and can not believe how expensive it is! I can’t wait to check out the online stores! Thank you!

    I haven’t ordered anything online yet, I use coupons at local stores to keep the costs down.

    We just switched over to GF about 2 weeks ago.  I had found some deals on Amazon and Vitacost, but hadn’t heard of the other places yet.  Thanks for the info!

    I do most of my online shopping on Amazon, so it’s good to know about some of these other ones.

  10. PatJohnson says:

    I do most of my shopping on line as I do not have a very big selection in my town.  Thanks for the info.  I had not heard of some of these online companies,

  11. apryldeeter says:

    i agree that iherb & amazon are #1. i am about 30 mins away from 2 different local health food stores that are very handy and i do buy some regular bulk items there that are priced right, but the selection and savings are really online. i had a less than stellar experience with vitacost, but i’m always willing to give a company with good prices a try. i’m off to check out some of the others on your list!

  13. CindySilberBlye says:

    Loving the info on other ways to shop gluten-free!

  14. Oh my gosh, this is SO helpful, thank you! I am a terrible bargain/comparison shopper – it’s really good to see what’s working for you. :)

    love your shopping tips!! thanks!

  16. aisazia says:

    Thanks for the tips and the list! Always good to know where the most knowledgeable buys their items from. :D

  17. ItsYummi says:

    I love shopping through Amazon.  GREAT prices!

  18. Shopping is something that most women love to do. Window-shopping is a great past time. The woman takes her time to go from store to store to research and compare store prices. Most women don’t need expert shopping tips because shopping is so natural to them.http://www.izzonet.com/streetwise-ecommerce/shopping-cart

    We love Amazon’s subscribe & save program! Also order from Vitacost sometimes.
