    I hate this store. Always out of everything, always charges too much. Was forced to go there today because I was out of a couple things and didn't have time to order. Three GNC stores downtown and I still couldn't get everything I needed. Vitamin Shoppe was my last stop and they had it.

    Lesson learned.

    With proper planning, you should be able to realize a substantial savings via bodybuilding.com. Brick and mortar retail is not a good choice for effective cash management on things you'd buy for training.

    You should expect to pay a 30% or more premium when you buy retail. If you're interested in saving money, you should shop online. For a great selection, few folks meet the thousands of items carried by bodybuilding.com.

    I love All Star Health. Their prices are almost always the cheapest, the selection is good, and the shipping is fast.

    For people who don't plan very well (life is crazy, we can't always be thinking about how much Glutamine we have) they have automatic email reminders you can set. For example, if you buy protein every two months and a stack every three, you will get an email at those times. Genius.

    Totally agree, that's my norm. I didn't get an order in on time so was kinda stuck. Made me remember why I don't go there. Though I haven't checked out bodybuilding.com so I'll do that when I go to order next.

    edit: @munchingzombie: I order from All Star Health, but never saw their reminder system. Very cool.
