The deal with Thrive Market

I've been hearing a lot lately about Thrive Market, and you probably have, too. I first heard about it a couple years ago on Robb Wolf's podcast, touted as a mix between Costco and Whole Foods--high quality groceries and products at a discount if you're a member.

It took me a while to try it out, though! I recently made my first order and have spent some good chunks of time researching and shopping at Thrive, and I wanted to talk about my experience - the pros and cons - and if you want to try it yourself, you can get a 1-month free trial and 15% off your first purchase!

Now, here are the details. There's an annual fee that works out to less than $5/month, and you can shop 4,000+ products from 400+ great quality brands (food, supplements, home, personal care, and beauty products), priced 25-50% below retail prices.

Membership is required to shop, but all you have to do to view is create a login--you don't have to submit credit card info and your free trial doesn't begin until you actually place an order. You can visit Thrive Market through this link for a free trial and 15% off your first order.

I was skeptical at first because I don't like annual memberships to online services, and I wasn't sure how much I would save compared to other online sources where I do sometimes find really good deals on orders of specialty items, supplements, etc. But, after comparing a few items from Thrive to Whole Foods brick-and-mortar stores to other online sources, I agree that Thrive is a good deal for quite a few items.

I decided to write this post after one of my best friends said she'd been ordering from Thrive, too, and a couple times when we've been over there she's had some exciting and interesting food products from there to share! I think some of you might be interested, too!

My top picks & deals from Thrive Market

I'm a budget-conscious shopper and we don't eat many processed foods, so a lot of the treats and grab-and-go snacks at Thrive Market don't appeal to us. But, there are still quite a few items they have that we would and/or do buy, and many of them (like these below) are cheaper at Thrive than anywhere else online!

Bath & Body

shea butter shampoo
natural deodorant
Dr. Bronner's versatile castille soap
Badger Balm zinc sunscreen
Aztec clay (great for natural DIY beauty products)
Dr. Bronner's castille bar soap, peppermint (the only kind of soap my husband will use!)
Dr. Bronner's organic peppermint toothpaste


Sir Kensington's mayonnaise
coconut milk, no additives
raw apple cider vinegar
Lundberg Farms rice (this brand is lowest in arsenic)
coconut aminos (gluten- and soy-free soy sauce alternative)
avocado oil


coconut palm sugar
coconut flour
almond meal
Medjool dates


Lara Bars (lemon bar flavor is our favorite!)
dried figs
Epic Bars (like this beef, apple, & bacon!)
dried mango

Some good stuff, right?? Just a very small selection of their many items, and definitely not the most exciting or flashy because again, we don't generally buy that stuff. It's good to know that Thrive is a good source for basics like these that we order a lot, though.

To be fair, here are some pros as well as cons I've identified in shopping with Thrive.

Thrive Market pros & cons


  • The most obvious pro is that they carry a bunch of quality food, beauty, home, etc. products at good prices. They have hard-to-find things for gluten-free, paleo, and other specialized lifestyles including low toxin home products.
  • They send you offers regularly for free gifts with your order, and some pretty good ones, too! Usually products I buy already and some of them pretty valuable. 
  • If you have a big family or kids with changing tastes, ordering multiple packages or trying new one-offs at better prices is probably very appealing!
  • They have their own store brands of high quality/rarer items, like this pastured cow ghee (clarified butter)--it's a better price than I've seen anywhere, including TJ's with their store brand.


  • For things like supplements, they have way less selection than Amazon. They do have some of the really good ones that I'd buy at either place, and usually for a lower price, but in some cases I need the variety since I'm particular about supplement quality and source.
  • You do have to pay the annual membership fee. If you don't order very much, the discounts in the products might not be worth the annual fee.

I encourage you to visit Thrive Market online yourself and check it out, see if it works for your family. Use any of the links in this post for a 1-month free trial and 15% off your first purchase, so no risk for you! And hey, let me know if you find any other great deals there or have product suggestions!
