    Price increase


    I went to order 5lb of whey protein isolate today and noticed that it is now $25 more than it was last month. I expect some fluctuation in prices, but an increase of more than 50% seems like a lot in one month. What is the deal?

    I love this stuff, so I'm not real keen on switching brands.

    I dont understand why companies are keeping the price of whey protein this high since the price of milk is at rock bottom prices... I thought whey protein derives from milk making it the main raw material

    Boo to the price increase! I was just about to order some isolate, but that's a huge price jump! I think I may look elsewhere for my isolate now.

    I'm shocked also. I have been ordering for a while now from All The Whey and when I saw the price on-site recently I had to check here to see if anybody else had noticed. I hope this is just a passing thing or I gotta look for another supplier.

    HmmmmmM wish I could find those places. We have one place that is cheap on milk and that is Costco. Every other place is over 4 bucks, that's the highest I've seen it here in 3 years.

    So no response yet from our resident All The Whey representative, Marcus ATW?

    Pretty outrageous price jump, and it's not necessary as the espresso flavor is still $45 and it costs more to make than the regular flavors. That's also why I just bought 3 tubs of espresso lol, but I still need a non-caffeinated flavor before going to bed, and I just ran out of peanut butter.

    Well the good thing is, we at NP still have plenty of WPI in stock and still at $38.95.

    This almost seems similar to Optimum Nutrition and how they price their 5lb Gold Standards at $74.99 on their website. No one actually buys it directly from them for this price (I hope) but they still keep their prices really high. I don't really see why ATW is doing this because no one is going to buy their protein directly from their website at this price when it is available other places for much less. I can't remember the last time I actually purchased anything from their website since you can get it cheaper pretty much anywhere else that carries it.

    Yeah - this price increase is out of control. I just turned two people onto ATW today but there's no way they're going to buy it from ATW's site at $70 for a 5lb container of Isolate. Nutraplanet is much cheaper right now but they're out of ChocPBCup and I wonder if their prices will be going up as well.

    They probably want sales to go through BB.com and Nutraplanet, cut back on direct purchases.

    Price Increase


    Guys,

    Just wanted to clear things up, sorry for the delay. We have actually raised our prices on the website to reflect the MSRP prices around the industry. Our company is expanding rapidly and we now have distributors like NutraPlanet who sell select products and those select products have been marked up.

    Currently our 2-5lbs. isolate and blend have been marked up to the MSRP. As of now protein over 5lbs. remains at low pricing for our customers that buy in bulk, and our exclusive products like our Whey naturals, Espresso, Etc. are only sold on our site at our low prices.

    If you guys ever want to purchase a smaller order like maybe one five pounder and still would like to buy direct, contact dorian@allthewhey and you can be set up to do so. Other than that you can still enjoy the original pricing on isolate and blend over 5lbs.

    Marcus, can you please have someone look into my order? This is my second time ordering and my protein has not been shipped for more than a week now. I called earlier today and they said they don't know why it hasn't been shipped because Espresso isolate is in stock and has been available for shipment few days now, and I was promised a call back in 10 minutes, but I never got one. First name is Tim. Your people should know who I am because I've left a voicemessage earlier this week and I called in earlier today.

    In the meantime, I've had to sustain my protein needs with nasty tasting chocolate Isopure.

    Wow this sucks. I just got back from deployment and go to order my protein and the price has almost doubled? I love your protein but unless I can find it at it's original price I will unfortunately have to take my business elsewhere.

    FINALLY got an email back (took long enough). Basically, they are saying that they ran out of material to make the batches ordered during the holidays and are now just shipping them. My order was placed 12-22-09 and if there are no delays with UPS, I'll finally be getting my protein on 01-11-10. Jesus, they couldn't have at least shipped overnight to make up for the ridiculous delay?

    They must be busy! Ordered some Iso from one of their vendors nearly 5 weeks ago (now backordered) and still haven't received it (nor has the vendor). Decided a few days ago to purchase from ATWs ebay page, got it 3 days later.

    Weird.

    I usually order at least 20 pounds at a time it's still relatively cheap but I used to be able to order 5 pound refills and get different flavors. Now you can just order 10 pound, 15 pounds etc. Is there any way I can order a 20 pound case and have 4 different flavors or am I limited to one flavor?

    I think the sale is over already. The prices have gone back to normal even though it hasn't even been a day yet.

    Man that's really ****ed up. I was on their site earlier today and it said the sale would be going on through Sunday so I was planning on ordering 15 pounds tonight. I'm going to call them tomorrow and ask what the deal is.

    It popped in my head tonight that maybe they put the ad up early. It did say Super Bowl blowout sale through Sunday, and the Superbowl is actually next Sunday, the 7th, so maybe the sale is going to be next week.

    I just got off the phone with them and the guy I talked to said it was a sale to get rid of excess inventory and that they sold it all in five hours. He said they'll most likely be doing it again in the future.

    They really shouldn't have advertised it as a 4-day sale without mentioning there were limited quantities.
