3 questions?

1. What is the best promos to sign up ?

2. Can you suspend weeks? Say traveling for example? Ok, I think I was confused. They deliver the full 4 weeks at once?

Can you at gift cards at any time to your account?

So total for the unique plan mens is 355 with save 50. I guess if you consider the gift card discount is good deal.. It's a good deal.... Wondering if womens plan is better value, I think you lose one snack per day for $40 cheaper

In my opinion, here are a few things to keep in mind:

1) I would order a la carte meals rather than doing a plan. This is a way of ordering individual meals without being stuck in a plan that you have to call to cancel. I priced out the meals both ways, and the a la carte meals were cheaper than the plan meals. Of course they hide the a la carte method of ordering on their site because they would rather have you in a plan.

To get the a la carte meals cheap though, you have to use ongoing promotions. You can find the promos and a la carte method of ordering here:
https://leaf.nutrisystem.com/blac...-la-carte/

In using the a la carte method they usually have two applicable promos: 50% off, and a Mystery Promo. Each promo is different and apply to different products. So make two orders, one for the items that the 50% off applies to, and the second for the items that the mystery promo applies to.

2) When doing meal planning keep the following in mind:
-- Nutrisystem monthly plans only include 22 meals. That allows for 'weekends your way'. When starting a new monthly plan they pick the first week or meals, and you get to pick the remaining 15 meals (or they will pick them for you). So if you do any type of price comparison keep that in mind.

Here is my comparison: I just ordered 93 meals and 60 snacks for $307. That is a full 30 day supply of food for about $50 less than the plan you mentioned which only has 22 meals. Note: I didn't order shakes due to the cost of shipping and no discounts. I feel there might be a better alternative to their shakes anyway. (Like possibly the Dr Atkins shakes?)

3) I can confirm. The Costco limit is 5 but you can actually do 5 online, and 5 instore for a total of ten. The gift cards are good until you use them.

4) If you are new to Nutrisystem and want to get a feel for their plan, you might want to pick up a 5 day starter kit. They are usually found in the sections with healthy shakes, nutrition supplements etc. Of course they are on Amazon as well. The reviews are not good but I had no problem sticking with it. The meal portions are small, so you will have to get used to that.

I hope that info helps. Good Luck.

Thanks for the info. The Nutrisystem women's plan which includes frozen foods comes out to $314 shipped with $50 promo on the Unique plan. Did you choose any frozen foods in your a la carte? Im assuming they cost more

When you sign up there is an option to use chef's choice or pick your own meals so are you sure you have to take chefs choice for the first week ?


Was trying to figure out the 22 meals thing , so basically its 30 days - 8 for the weekends?
Male - would be 22 dinners, breakfasts, lunches 2 snacks and womens would be same with 1 snack - so female plan would be 88 meals, and your saying you got 143 meals (if you count snacks) for $307 shipped ?

Just trying to clarify. I also found online someone posting a spreadsheet laying out how to do nutrisystems at the supermarket, which I might try after the costco cards run out

Yes, I had frozen meals ordered too. And yes it is 30 days - 8 meals (4 weekends x 2 meals) = 22 days. At least that is how I figured it out.

I did a 'walk through' on the plan sign up and it would only let me pick 15 meals. That is 7 days their pick, plus your own 15. That is what got me to do some research on the meal count. They really don't explain these things when you sign up. If you do the chefs choice they are making the choice for you but you still only get 22 meals (plus whatever snacks and shakes are included).

*Above the selection for Chefs Choice or Pick Your Own is a option to open a tab called "What's best for me". Essentially both plans start with a "FreshStart" week of foods.


The other thing that concerned me is if you do the plan, does the 2nd month also get a discount? I would think the 2nd month is at regular rate, but I'm not sure. Plus, the thing that turned me off of this before, is doing the automatic renewal. If you cancel after your first month, and before you receive the 2nd month, they charge you for the discount you received.

I won't stay on Nutrisystem forever. I just hope while I am on it I learn better meal planning habits and portion control. I only used to eat large meals once or twice a day. I did no meal planning at all. When I was hungry, anything was game, and that usually meant fast food or junk food. On Nutrisystem, I am surprised I really don't feel that hungry as much eating smaller portions at a regular times of the day. I might add in some shakes later on.
For me, I think I can stretch out my gift cards to do a two month plan and hopefully follow through on a better diet on my own afterward. So far I like the plan.

Thanks again. I did not know about the charge back of any discount either. I called to ask questions and they told me its 20 meals , not 22 - not sure if she was incorrect. Also told me about the cancellation fee if you do not do two months.

Was there a guide that you followed to choose your food a la carte ? Seems time consuming.
I found an Excel spreadsheet from someone online that someone made of buying foods from supermarket mimicking the nutrisystem plan. I just hate lean pockets

I didn't follow any guide for food selection. Their system is one breakfast, shake, lunch, dinner and snack per pay, and add one snack if you are a man. That is all I did to choose meals.

It can be confusing doing the a la carte method. The hardest thing is keeping in mind how many of each meal type is selected. Doing two orders doesn't help either. So if you prefer simplicity I would go with a plan.

https://leaf.nutrisystem.com/for_...irst-week/ Here is more info on the FreshStart week. This is 7 meals and is intended to start off a plan program. It seems like you may get 22 meals for the first month and only 20 the second month.

Can you send me the link for the site you mentioned. I would like to check it out. Thanks.

Was trying to do ala carte. So many exlclusions
Quote :
Exclusions: DNA Kits, Shakes, TurboBoosters, Samplers, Multi-Packs, Vitamins, Turkey Sausage Egg Muffin, Hamburger, Ice Cream Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Canadian Bacon Egg Muffin, Buttermilk Waffle.
Mystery Deal was 30% and free shipping over $75 and Memorial Day was 50% off but they were on same items

so its a choice get 50% off frozen items and probably have a shipping charge of get 30% off and free shipping - except for exclusions above which sucks because they are the core foods - also no discount on non-frozen

Kind of disappointing. IMO prices are much higher (at least before discounts) than supermarket. I have a $1000 to spend but even with the built in 40% Costco - not sure its a g great deal.....

Well, that sucks! Nearly all of their exclusions were 50% off when I ordered.
However, I noticed that some of the 50% off items in this sale were only 30% off when I ordered. You basically have to play around with your orders.

There is a discount on the non frozen foods. Make sure you are clicking on the tab at the top for certain categories, ie Breakfast, Lunch Dinner, etc.

  • I wish this was less confusing. Too many promo hoops to get the right deal. There retail prices are not great
  • $3.25 for a single turkey sausage egg muffin where they would be $1-$2 a piece in the supermarket . Both are made with questionable ingredients.... i.e mechanically separated turkey - poultry equivalent of beef's pink slime.
  • Its almost not worth the hassle but now that I made my investment in Costco gift cards I have to give it a try.
  • The best deal I seem to be getting is a 50% link in my email that comes out to $284 (incl $15 packaging) total for the Uniquely Yours "female" plan, the male plan is another $30 and includes 20 snacks ($1.50 less 40% Costco) however I prefer to supplement my own extra snack with a yogurt or premier protein shake from Costco.
  • I doubt TCB 15% will work because that link only gave me 40%, had to replace the with google link to get 50%. Also not sure if CB works when using gift cards so 50% was definitely better - save50 stopped working
  • Curious if the discount carries through on reorders. I'll be pissed if they charge me double next month
  • This is not a good diet! I am not a fan of it. I think a good diet consists of "lean, green and protein". In other words, buy tons of lean meats, green veggies, high protein snacks such as shakes and yogurt, occasional fruit. I do not consider Nutrisystems to be health conscious , it is just calorie conscious
  • I live in an apartment and my freezer is not huge. I am debating buying a compact freezer for about $200 to support this attempt.

Think it's time for new thread... $25 off in Aug book. Think that will make it $55... If someone wants to earn rep

Curious what people are paying for their plans. Mine cost $284 for Womens w/ frozen including shipping

On a plus cash back worked for my first order, but not auto renewals
