    ha this is the whey I use, I've currently got 2 bottles, one vanilla and the choc, it is by far the cheapest I have found.

    But I regret to inform you this is not actually the best deal, I don't want to flaunt my superior cheapie skills but. I got my last bottle for $35, 50% off all Inc products. Wanted to get the creatine as well but the page for it was broken. Not to sure yet as to how to upload photos in archive but if you can't take my word for it I do have proof. Purchased on 29 Sept this year, was during their spring sale

      This is correct, I've also bought it when it was around $35 before

      Nice. I see its price jump all over the place, was at $80 a couple of months ago.

      • yeah, stores like chemist warehouse use massively inflated RRPs to pretend they're having massive sales, briscoes does the same thing. It's bad for the consumer because they it's hard to tell if it's actually cheaper than normal. I believe there was something about this regarding supermarket specials in the same way. They have a sale going on everyday of the year but use a higher price than before to make more profit. I wonder what will happen if you confront customer service about it not actually being half price, I haven't tried calling them before but I know their email is really slow.

        • Ah yes the Briscoes business model

    • Was this on Chemist Warehouse too?

      • yeah, they seem to be exclusive to them

  • quite strange that they claim 1/2 on the catalogue but some things like this whey, creatine and mass gainer are not half price, seems like something that is illegal. photo

  • What do you actually use whey for?

    • protein supplement

      • How would this compare in terms of cost to eating other cheap protein rich sources, like eggs for example?

        • +2

          It's cheaper than any other source of complete protein, gram for gram. It's also favourable compared to other proteins because it's very quick and easy to take, is low-calorie per protein gram, stores for months/years, and is compact to store/transport. A balanced diet that includes eggs, meat, beans, etc is probably best in a perfect world, but if your diet is a bit lacking then adding whey is ideal from a bang-for-buck perspective.

            @Slogan: OK so it has 25.3g per 36g serving, so 70% of its weight or 1400g is protein. Comparing to an egg, which seems to have 7g of protein, this is the equivalent of 200 eggs.

            PakNSave sell 20 eggs for $5.70 or $57 for 200 so the powder is about 25% cheaper than fresh eggs for the same weight of protein.

            But surely eggs have lots of other good nutrients that make them more desirable? I guess I don't really know enough about this protein supplement scene to understand why it's better…

            • @felixfurtak: So you've covered the price angle pretty well.
              In terms of nutrients, if you google this product you'll be able to find the nutritional data that shows all the vitamins and minerals that it has — there are plenty. It's a health supplement so they chuck in a bunch of different things and it's like taking a multivitamin on top of the protein.
              The other stuff I mentioned is about ease of use. It's a hassle to keep a bunch of fresh eggs around, or to have a cooked one on demand. With protein powder you just mix it with water and you're done. You can also quaff a LOT of protein powder without getting tired of it, whereas eggs, beef, etc can be a grind to eat day in, day out. The convenience of having a packet of protein powder with you or in a drawer at work is another plus, can't do that with meat or eggs.

              • @Slogan: I agree, also the cholesterol of that many eggs means an early grave.

  • Anyone ever had luck returning a recently bought item to get the sale price and store credit at Chemist Warehouse? The item I got is $90 cheaper. I’ve been spending a tonne there lately.

  • Only issue is the high salt, I prefer whey with lower salt to avoid fluid retention and bloating (including high BP)

  • Purchasing a safe protein powder
    It might feel overwhelming to choose a protein powder from the many available options online or at the health food store. Here are a few things you can do to make it easier:

    Look for third-party testing. Check product labels for certifications from reputable third-party organizations such as NSF International’s Certified for Sport, USP, Informed Choice, ConsumerLab, and the Banned Substances Control Group.
    Read the label. If you’re looking to avoid a certain ingredient, be sure to read the label carefully. In addition to the ingredients list, a label may give information about a product, such as whether it’s vegan or gluten-free.
    Look at the serving size. The best protein powders will contain 20–30 grams of protein per scoop.

    The easiest way to spot a protein powder that is using cheap raw protein is its price. If it’s much cheaper than the major brand protein powders, you better suspect that something is up. If you think that you’re getting a great deal on a cheap protein powder, that’s all that you’re getting. You are NOT getting a good-quality protein powder. There is only one way for a company to undersell all other reputable companies, and that is by buying inferior protein. So be careful of protein powders that are not major brands, that you can’t find on bodybuilding.com, GNC or The Vitamin Shoppe, and are incredibly cheap. As they say, you get what you pay for.

    • So what's the detriment of using "cheap raw protein"?

    • So what are your thoughts on this whey protein?
      As this whey is NZ made, so I would assume it would be better quality than whey from overseas.

        Oh it's whey better.
