Use code OPT20 + EXCLUSIVE20 which gives you additional 40% off

Other ON products, these stackable coupons is accepted

Myprotein does whey isolate for $70 shipped 11lb regularly. What makes this a better deal?

Have you ever tried myprotein or just assuming it's a gross brand, because I have nothing against their chocolate mint, it's not the most amazing sure but it's plenty drinkable and way better than other brands of chocolate I've tried which taste so bad I couldn't finish them.

I bet if you order this, you'll actually receive it without a month of runaround and having to deal with F tier customer service. Because when you order from my protein, you get a month of runaround and have to deal with F tier customer service.

That's a pretty big claim. The one time I ordered from myprotein I had no such experience. I placed my order on June 28, 2017 it was "dispatched" June 29, 2017 and delivered Wednesday July 5, 2017. Thats one week from ordering to it being at my door.

I'm glad you had a more positive experience than myself.
However, my bold claim is 100% accurate for my own experience.
If delivery is quoted at x date, I expect that. If company cannot deliver, I'll seek alternative companies. For me, thats reason enough to not use myprotein, because they cannot deliver to ME in the quoted time. (Continental US). We must remember our time has the most value of all. Good luck with your purchases.

I've ordered from Myprotein over 10 times without any issue. I've had a punctured bag one time and they sent a replacement within a week. But back to this post. Myprotein does not contain BCAA like ON. You will need to read up and decide if you want it in your shake. I combine 1 scoop of ON and 1 unflavored Myprotein in my shakes.

My understanding was that BCAA's are just amino acids that we need and whey protein has complete amino acids to cover all the essential amino acids we need for muscle growth, adding BCAA's seems a bit superfluous, though personally I do drink an amino x each day on top of the protein shakes from myprotein simply for the taste, so have that covered even if it isn't necessary.

OP there is no mistake in the price. You're the mistake. Vitacost allowed stackable coupons since the beginning of time. It used to be up to 4 if you must know (probably still is)....it even says right below their order page when you apply a coupon:
"More than one code? That's OK! Please note that some codes can't be used with others, just be sure to enter one at a time"
Peace

The theory is that your body needs amino acids to rebuild muscle after a workout. BCAA are already broken down where whey is undigested and is still in long chains

thats correct adding BCAAs makes no sense if already supplementing with protein shakes. It only makes sense in lieu of, if you are trying to avoid the calories or for whatever other reason otherwise it won't hurt you (or i dont think) just more chemicals in your body than needed.

for starters, you need more than BCAAs after a workout to "replenish" if thats what you're thinking.

Yes I know. I was just answering the original question of ON vs Myprotein. I love Myprotein prices and flavors (chocolate mint yum!), but I do by both brands.
