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.

Anyone know what line its from? I see that it's not the performance whey. Since its 4.5 pounds and 30g protein per serving (?), anyone know how many servings it is or how big the serving size is?

Nevermind, just reread the initial post. 30g protein for ~37g serving. Not bad, will have to check it out when time comes! repped! Smilie

Couldn't find it today in my local costco to price it. Guess they won't start carrying it until January?

I saw it at my mine today. Yours should have it by the time the coupon goes into effect.

having said that, i've been drinking isopure nearly every day for the past 5 years and no ill effects yet.
I use ON gold whey, ON casein. 1.75 scoops right after workout, 1/2 scoop cas with 25% milk 75% water before bed.

I'd post a pic but i'm sleepy. I'm no bodybuilder but i do ok, it's pretty obvious that i'm muscular. it's not because of the powder, of course,... i work out 4 days a week 45 to 1 hour with a buddy and we go fast and hard.

but i really do think it helps. before i used to only use food and i'd still get big but not as nicely done.

Too right.

Sadly the value of the $$ and the take home paycheck has not followed suit.

I remember years back when I got 5lb tubs of protein from an EOY Amazon sale for $11 each.

Almost put in my order on a tub to Amazon this morning and then saw this thread! Thanks OP.

I've been using the double chocolate ON for a month now (weight loss) and I love the flavor. Tastes good even with plain H2O.

I was following a diet plan consisting of 3 tuna cans a day and after realizing that plain tuna in fact tastes like wet cardboard, I decided to supplement with a protein shake instead.

I've lost 8 lbs so far (from 207 to 199lbs now) in 3 weeks. Supplementing only with ON protein, DS Craze (love that shyte! and the main reason why I've been able to keep up my 5 day workouts in winter).

For the elites...this is what I've been using:

Just exactly how much lower tier is the Costco version (non gold version)?

^ make a suggestion

Here's my suggestion:

8.8 pounds for $55 shipped. Best price per gram on SD right now
http://slickdeals.net/f/5677072-D...S-VitaCost?v=1

Some math for you.

CVS Protein: 14 servings per container, 26grams of protein per serving, 3 containers.
TOTAL = 1092 grams for $33 or $ .03022 per gram

OR

Dymatize Protein: 2 Bottles * 61 Servings * 21 Grams of Protein
TOTAL = 2562 grams for $55 or $.021468 per gram

Thats 29 % cheaper for a QUALITY, NAME-BRAND PROTEIN

saw this at costco today. this is not the normal performance whey. i looked at the ingredients and it was all isolate, do not remember seeing concentrate. if it's really 100% isolate, this is quality stuff. much better than the gold standard, which is not all isolate.

$58 at costco, but it's 140 kcals, 30g protein, 1g of fat, and under 3g carbs.

Can't find this specific product anywhere on ON's website, but I think it's a good price after coupon considering the nutrition profile.
