Why I decided to join Thrive Market, what you need to know about Thrive Market, and some of my favorite buys from Thrive Market.FYI: This post is not sponsored by Thrive Market, but I am a Thrive Market affiliate partner. Throughout this post there will be affiliate links which, if you purchase from, will give Lean, Clean, & Brie a small commission at absolutely no additional cost to you. All products featured, including my Thrive Market membership, were purchased on my own. Thank you for your support! <3
As I continue to dive more into eating real whole foods and less processed foods, I am always looking for a good deal. I am a girl on a budget (no shame about it) and do not want to sacrifice good quality nutritious foods for a good deal. I get so excited when I am able to find my favorite real foods at a good price. So when I started hearing more and more about Thrive Market where people were saying “it’s Whole Foods meets Costco!” I was instantly intrigued. I love a good Whole Foods trip, but I hate the additional cost of buying some of my favorite foods there.
What is Thrive Market?
So you are probably wondering, where is Thrive Market? Is there one near me? And the answer to that: Heck yes there is one near you! If you are reading this post on the internet right now, you have Thrive Market just a few clicks away. Thrive Market is an online marketplace offering natural and organic products at wholesale prices. No, you do not have to buy 6 cases of a product to get the wholesale price, with a $59.95 annual membership (less than $5 per month) you can get the wholesale price at whatever quantity you purchase at.
When you become a member you can shop 4,000 of the highest quality food, supplements, home, personal care, and beauty products from more than 400 of the best brands on the market all delivered straight to your door. Yup, that means shopping from the comfort of your own home and no pick up required!
The basics of Thrive Market:
- Membership: $59.95 annually
- Thrive Market offers free shopping on all orders over $49 and delivers anywhere in the continental United States — the average cost of shipping on orders under $49 is approximately $5
- Shop by your values: Thrive Market provides coverage across dozens of dietary preferences and values. From paleo and gluten free, to vegan and raw and certified organic, it is extremely easy to shop by preference.
- Sustainability: Thrive Market is an environmentally responsible and sustainable business. All packaging, boxes, and inserts are recyclable.
- Top brands available through Thrive Market: Bob’s Red Mill, Garden of Life, Earth’s Best, Jason Naturals, Annie’s Homegrown, Primal Kitchen, Siete, and more.
What makes Thrive Market different?
Thrive Market’s savings are 15-25% lower compared to other online retailers, and a Thrive Market membership supports a strong social mission to make healthy living accessible to everyone regardless of where they live or how much they make (more on that below).
Thrive Market also provides a trusted shopping experience to its members. Thrive offers top brands in the natural food space and the best foods that are certified organic, made in the USA, non-GMO, and more.
How Does Thrive Market work?
Joining Thrive Market is SO easy. First, register for free to browse through the Thrive catalog — this is what I did first to really see how much I would be saving when purchasing products, and also receive an extra 25% off your first purchase. Next, start your trial. When you make your first purchase on Thrive, you will start a free 30-day membership trial. See how much you save in that month and decide if you want to continue (and cancel at anytime). Finally, join the community! Join Thrive for $59.95 and save on your favorite foods for a full year AND provide a free membership to a low-income family.
Easy as that!
Another key feature of Thrive Market is its mission. Beyond providing people, like me, a gateway to my favorite foods and products at wholesale prices, Thrive Market provides memberships to low-income American families. Every paid membership is matched with a free membership for a low-income American family.
My Thrive Market Favorites
I decided to join Thrive Market for a few reasons: they have allllll my favorite foods and products that I use nearly everyday (and some new things to try out!), the Thrive Market social mission, and the convenience anywhere. I do not know where I will end up getting a job right now, and to be completely honest, I could end up in an area with no Whole Foods, no Trader Joe’s, no Fresh Thyme, anywhere near by. I am not going to not take a job because I won’t have my favorite store nearby and now that I have a Thrive Membership I know that no matter where I end up moving, I can still get my favorite foods and products at good prices. And I can buy everything from the comfort of my own home 🙂
I made my first Thrive Market a couple weeks ago and after making my first purchase I knew I was going to be hooked. I saved a ton of money on products I use daily, plus I got free shipping!
Here’s what I purchased:
Thrive Market is more about just food!! There is everything from natural body products to food storage to pet products, and kitchen appliances… and more!
