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!!

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
