I haven't spoke with the owner of NP since around 2005/6....
Not that their CS tran isn't any good, they are great, but there's something nice in conversing with the guy who's pocket your putting money into and has a vested interest in maintaining a good customer shopping experience.
I'd buy from both any day... bulk supps from NP, cheaply priced prohormones/steroids from ******* and both have their own combo deals and clearances that are amazing.iForceHemavol=He-man?-http://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-reviews-logs/187487-hemavol-heman-doughs.htmlCompound 20 Beta log-http://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-reviews-logs/185396-molding-dough-compound.html

In my experience price wars always equal poor quality. Sure you can buy three pairs of Walmart shoes for the price of a good pair of Merrels but all you get is three pairs of shoes that suck.
When im buying bulk powders i want to believe i am getting what is promised and nothing more. I dont like the idea of someone skipping a step and leaving a bunch of residual processing chems in the product just to keep the price down.

Back when I started our first setup in 2008, we sorted products by things like "Grams of protein per dollar". But this isn't what users want. They typically want quality first -- but then want to see where they can get it either cheapest or most conveniently.
In our next phase of content, we are building a type of "questionnaire" app that will ask you a bunch of questions on what you're looking for in XYZ type of product. One of the questions will indeed be quality vs. low price. Most people will choose quality, and that's why the super dirt cheap stuff isn't at the top of our listings.
But either way, if you're looking for a specific product, you might as well get sent to the cheapest store. That, to me, is a consumer-friendly price war.
So yeah, you're right -- the "most grams per dollar" system does fall apart when you're looking at bulk powders. We don't really deal in that realm right now though.

I think this is absolutely awesome news. NP is the place I have spent more supplement dollars than anywhere else, but if someone has been limiting themselves to just buying there then you have really missed out.
Competition is a good thing for all. I really think this has the potential to grow the AM community!

This will not compromise the quality of the products on sale though as they are not made by the retailers, so they cannot cut corners on quality as they have no say in how a product is produced.

Figuring out a way to work with more retailers that don't have sales tracking programs is a big plan for the next few months, which will hopefully take us to next-level status.

Most of the weekly deals on SNO seem high to me. $29 for Orange Triad is good enough to classify as a weekly deal? First time hearing of the place so maybe I just need to wait and see.

will your fee to retailers eventually be high enough that effects their bottom line enough to increase cost to us, the consumers?
i am perfectly willing to do my own searching if it means lower prices, it isn't really that big of a deal to me...

my only issue is a middleman for retailers, in my experience middlemen cause increases in prices...the way you have it set up i find it very easy to hunt for the lowest price on my own, especially if it means lower prices.
if he makes a deal with retailers i understand that is out of your control.....
keep up the good work, looks good so far!!!!

Let's see how this unfolds. Still feel plenty of nostalgia for the incredible NutraPlanet-AnabolicMinds days of yore.
