Thread Details

Lots of ON protein fans on here - good news because ON prices have been through the roof this year. The new Costco coupon book for January shows Costco will begin carrying ON Performance Whey Isolate, 4.5 lbs in vanilla. Item # will be 705085. From 1/2/13 to 1/27/13 there will be a $12 off coupon, limit 2. Have not been able to price yet, but usually Costco's prices are fair and the $12 off per tub should make this pretty slick for ON Cool

This is supposed to be a Costco exclusive per their mag. 30g protein per serving / 55 servings per tub.

Maybe it's me, but neither ON or Cytosport mix nearly as well in water or hot coffee as Dymatize Elite Isolate. Just came across an old post with a $27 price tag on the 6 lb Cytosport at Costco. Why are prices up so d$@$ much?

Thanks. Repped.

So Gold Standard Whey is this: http://www.optimumnutrition.com/p...fcb4332d7b 24G protein per serving, faster digestion.

Performance Whey is this: http://www.optimumnutrition.com/p...p-279.html 22G protein per serving, slower digestion than Gold.

This CostCo Performance Whey has 30G protein per serving, similar to Platinum Ultra Whey, but called "Performance"... very interesting. Would like to understand where it sits within the ON protein hierarchy.

You can blame Gatorade for that.

It's a couple five/six months down the road when Costco starts clearing out their ON stock again [see the RTD ON stuff that didn't move] because its too damn expensive.

*Waits for the $XX.97 to kick in*

how much do you think this will drop to? i don't think people are really willing to spend that much on this whey even if it's isolate. they don't even know the difference.

I think he's basically saying this isn't the ON Gold Standard, so temper the expectations

this is 100% isolate. don't think you're gonna find another major brand out there that's 100% isolate for this price.

BTW, many may already know this, but all Costco coupons have the same barcode, so you can go back on a second visit and get more with a different coupon (or take a coupon book off the customer service desk).

This is true for all Costco "coupon" items.

Dairy prices are WAY up because corn, the primary food for dairy cattle, is up 400% (because we keep putting it in our gas tanks).

Milk prices are somewhat subsidized by the government, somewhat by grocery stores and major dairies that skim (pun intended) their margins on milk to get your business. So the cost increases are shifted onto milk by-products like whey protein, cottage cheese, sour cream etc. etc.
