Cheapest Place To Buy gluten-free Foods Online
0

7 posts in this topic

Well, I have decided that I CANNOT go to a grocery store for gluten-free foods. I am very bad about 'over shopping' because I see something is gluten-free.

If I can buy my gluten-free foods online, it will save me time and money, because I will be able to see my shopping cart, and how much it all costs...

Where is the CHEAPEST gluten-free online store that has a great selection... Is it GFmall?

It has been MY experiene that after looking at many sites for gluten-free foods, that most run the exact same price as I find them in the stores! It could be that someone else knows more than me on this subject but I have been looking around. I have concluded that the upside of shopping online is that you can get quantities that may be more than a small store may have on their shelves. I like to have stock on hand. And often the items I'm looking for isn't available at the time I happen to be shopping either. The downside would be the shipping costs. But for me the stores the carry these kinds of things are a ways away so I'm not spending my time or gasoline to get there. I look forward to reading other responses on this one.

I've looked at a lot of places, and the only one with reasonable prices (cheaper than the store, usually) is the large online retailer that's not allowed to be named here... if you don't know where I'm talking about, think of the largest online retailer you can remember... books, electronics, etc... and it's not eBay.

I agree with brigala.

I have found the best deals on the site you were hinting about. I'll give another hint Starts with an "A" Ends with an "N" :)

I buy my Annies Boxed Mac and Cheese, Gluten Free Pantry Mixes, Cooking and other info Books, Noodles and other Gluten Free Foods on this site. You can sign up for special deals on items that you use a lot (forget what it is called but not everything falls under this special) and if you buy over $25 with them you get free shipping so that helps.

(I am not affiliated with this shopping site just love great deals).

Do you have a WalMart Grocery Store near you? Their brand -- Great Value labels Gluten Free and the normal everyday brand stuff is resonable as well. The next store in line with responable prices is Smith's (at least where I live) same store as Ralph's and Kroger if you have one of those.

Good Luck

By the way, don't be afraid of using the 15% off (and free shipping) with their Subscribe-and-Save program for eligible foods. It's super easy to cancel any time, and they'll even email you a reminder before your next shipment is due to give you a chance to cancel or skip the shipment. This is NOT the equivalent of a book or C D club. ;-)

I'm on a tight budget and I have to watch my pennies! I buy gluten free mixes and snacks from the same on line shop that I buy vitamins from. Free shipping when you buy at least $100 worth of merchandise. They have tiered pricing as well at 3, 6 and 12 quantities. The things I buy I haven't found cheaper anywhere else. The selection is limited.

I don't think I can mention a product search engine, but if you search product search engines with i.e. "gluten free pantry" you get all kinds of on line stores selling the same stuff and get to see side-by-side pricing. You'll have to visit the stores separately to see how much (if any) the shipping charges are. I do this for a lot of on line shopping. And don't forget to go to coupon/promo code sites to see if you can get addtional discounts by using a code at checkout!!

    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
