The $50 Pantry Hack

The $50 Pantry Hack

I get asked about my Thrive deal a lot, so I thought I’d make a blog post about how to “hack” the discount to get the most savings for the least amount of money. When it’s time to stock your pantry, here’s exactly how to get $85 worth of helpful pantry items for just $52.

My trick for doing this depends on doing a Thrive Market free trial, and using their first-time order discount. If you use this link, you’ll get 25% off your first order (up to $20 in savings above and beyond member discounts) plus they’ll waive the membership fee for the first 30 days. You can always cancel after your first order before they charge you the membership fee ($59). I will say the prices are so much cheaper than retail even without the first-time member discount that it’s worth it to join Thrive if you’re buying pantry items like this on a regular basis.

I joined Thrive Market almost 2 years ago, and it’s really saved me a lot of money. I used to order through the site 3-4 times a year, but now that I’m used to the ordering process and I’ve realized how much money it saves you to plan ahead and order on Thrive instead of waiting on sales or coupons at other stores, I’m now ordering almost every month. Basically for $59 a year you can shop for healthy pantry/home/beauty/etc. items at a price well below retail.

This is not a sponsored post: AKA they are not paying me anything (in money or with goods) to write this. However I am a Thrive Market affiliate, which means if you join Thrive Market through any of the links in this post, I may earn a commission.

HOW TO GET $85 WORTH OF PANTRY GOODS FOR $52

Here’s the key to hacking Thrive’s first-time order deal:

1) The 25% off your entire order deal maxes out at $20 in savings, so get as close as you can to $20 in savings for maximum benefit.

2) Shipping is free for orders over $49, so get as close as you can to a $49 subtotal to qualify for the free shipping (once you join, it’s still always free shipping over $49)

3) Choose items at the steepest discount compared to retail price: those prices will still be that low once you join (the 25% off isn’t deducted from your cart until checkout so you’ll see the prices as they are for regular members while you’re shopping).

And here’s how to do it:

1) Go to thrivemarket.com/melissasfoodfreedom and enter your email FIRST, and THEN build your cart. If you try building a cart directly from their site before going to my link, the first-time order discount won’t be linked properly.

2) Add the items I’ve listed below to your cart. Your subtotal should be $52.07, and shipping will be free (sales tax varies by state).

3) Once you check out, items will ship (continental US only, but they plan to expand soon!). Don’t forget that 30 days after you order, they’ll charge you the $59 annual membership fee. Mark your calendar for that date and be sure to decide whether or not you’re joining before they charge you so you can prepare for the charge (or cancel).
