Original Post

Edited March 1, 2013 at 10:28 PM by widgit
I received an email this morning from Bodybuilding.com for this promotion: Buy 1 2lb Phase 8 at $29.97, get 1 free. That's 4lbs for $29.97.

http://www.bodybuilding.com/store...8_03012013

Shipping starts at $5.98. It doesn't increase much if you want to add more.

There may be a coupon code for an additional 10% off floating around (if anyone has one, please post).

Also, don't forget to add your 2 free samples.

This is a pretty sweet deal because GNC with the Gold Card discount has 2lb at $23.99 (plus taxes and shipping).

Phase 8 is a blend protein (not a pure whey).

Why is it that no one seems to care that this and many other protein powders have Sucralose and Acesulfame Potassium?

Of course, sugar is also bad.

Not much research behind Acesulfame.

You are completely right. The issue with artificial sweeteners is the fact that they still raise your insulin when you ingest them. Xylitol(a common gum sweetener) is the only sweetener that does not raise your insulin levels. Remember, high insulin sensitivity = highest possibility of sugar/amino acid absorption by cells = more anabolic effect.

This is why some really pro workout junkies only eat during a certain time slot during the day (say 4-7pm). They eat 3000 calories' worth and then starve the rest of the time until the next day. It's also a good way for type 2 diabets to eat, but that's never going to happen.

Deal pretty much deal now. ON is still the best IMO but this was a good deal for the price.

10 pound bag of ON $98 on amazon

1 Scoop = 30.4 g. 149 scoops per container. 24g protein per scoop.

3576 grams of protein for $98 dollars.

36.5 grams per dollar.

8 pounds of muscle tech $61.93

2lbs containers. 42 grams per scoop. 26g protein per scoop. 22 scoops per container.

22 scoops x 4 (containers) = 88 scoops. 88 scoops x 26 grams = 2288 grams protein.

2288 grams protein for $61.93

36.9 grams per dollar.


36.5 (not on sale) vs 36.9 (on sale). I would lose the extra .4 grams of protein per dollar to have optimum nutrition. The fact is muscletech is selling you whey protein concentrate where as ON has a higher ratio of isolate (look at the order in which they are on the ingredients).

When you compare protein you do not ask yourself, "how much does it cost per pound".

You need to ask yourself, "how much protein do I get per dollar or how much does 1 gram of protein cost".

Thats why deals like this look so good. But really this deal was never good...

The deal was good for the 4.4 or 4.6 lb tubs though. Buying the larger tubs it worked out to $44.97 for either 8.8 or 9.2 lbs of protein.

YMMV free $20 store credit for those that bought this backordered. By contacting them through live chat...fyi.

Just so everyone knows, seems like BB reps think this might get canceled if you got backordered. Seems like it might. Heres a copy of my chat transcript with a rep on their site


Please wait. An operator will be with you shortly.

I would wait honestly or place a new order with that stuff as it will ship sooner than the protein

Getting back on the protein track.... It seems like bb pulled through on the 4.6lb and 4.4lb tubs. Cash has been withdrawn from the account. This makes me very happy. If this is anything like elite xt I will love it.

Someone posted this on BB:

This thread was already made 2 days ago and I purchased the 4.4lb strawberry. Today I found out I am not getting any protein at all...Sorry to be the one to tell you but BB.com has discontinued this product and they will not HONOR any orders AT ALL. I talked to one of the chat representatives today. They messed up the "shipping" making it free shipping and also they received +500 orders which would have been about ~10.000$ in losses towards the company (at 8$, which is usually the shipping cost for +3lbs on US land, +50-100$ INTL cost orders)All your orders will be refunded... I'm pretty disappointed myself and was really happy thinking I'd get my stuff but I've already been refunded. I guess they would have processed the orders if they were like 20-50. But SO many people ordered, some of them ordering twice or 3 times the deal that they ended up discontinuing that way they won't process anyone's order.Especially those who got INTERNATIONAL free shipping, you think that's gonna happen at all? Shipping such heavy items up to 30lbs for free? You know that costs about 100-150$ just in shipping. No way BB will pay out of their pocket for your shipping.inb4 it comes back in stock after everyone gets their refund with shipping cost fixed

They cancelled my order. After live chatting for 15 minutes, I could not get them to do something similar for me. This is in spite of my previous chat 2 days ago, in which another rep reassured me that the order would be shipped.

Called CSR and switched it to 4 2 lb tubs shipped

Just a info Have called CSR twice and both the times the associate dint said the 4lb tubs have been stopped or like that. Its just they dint wanted wait more then 14 days for back ordered hence providing replacements. Which i understand if you don't receive the cancellation email and decide to wait they would eventually be getting it back and would fulfill the order

I got mine yesterday. Pretty awesome getting it after one business day.

I have to say, this stuff is really tasty. Tastes better than any other protein I've tried. Highly recommended.

The 150 calories per scoop is a little bit of a downer when I'm on 1900 cals a day, but I just eat a few less almonds. It's worth it, since the stuff tastes so good and makes me actually want to drink my two shakes a day.

Also ordered some White Flood PWO since I was almost out of the Neurocore I have. Going to try the White Flood now to see how it stacks up. It was the lowest cost per serving I could find, so this tub should last me a while. I got the 100 serving tub.
