Are You Paying Too Much for your Shakeology?
As a single mom living on a teacher’s salary, I’m always on the lookout for the best value for my money. Shakeology is definitely on the top of my list anyway, so if there is a discount to be had, SIGN ME UP!
I began drinking Shakeology in 2010 and have been hooked ever since. The migraines I once had have decreased, I have energy again, I’ve lost weight, and I’m grateful to have found an easy, inexpensive way to make sure my kids and I have at least one really nutritious meal per day.
Needless to say, I’ve seen great results from this superfood with 70+ natural ingredients from nutrient-dense, whole-food sources from around the world. Since single mommy-hood doesn’t always mean I eat as well as I should, I’m beyond grateful for this!
If you are paying more than $97.46 for your Shakeology let’s do some math. Actually, don’t worry, I’ll do the math, you just sit back for a moment and then decide for yourself.
First of all, if you are currently paying retail, or considering adding Shakeology to your health regimen, know that I will ALWAYS recommend NOT paying retail, especially when there are a variety of ways to get it for less!
So How Can I Get My Shakeology Discount?
Check out the graphic here for a summary of the different options, then read below*. They get better as you go, so make sure you read all the way through!
*Note that this post was created to reflect pricing in 2016. If there have been any increases since then the numbers may be slightly different, but the principles will remain. Contact me if you have any ??s
*prices are in US dollars, subject to change and don’t include taxes which will vary by state
Shakeology Discount Option #1 – Home Direct (Super Saver Shipping)
As you can see from the chart, the retail/one-time order is the highest priced purchase. To avoid paying retail, it’s a no-brainer to choose the home direct (HD) auto-ship for the $2 shipping, at the very least. Even if you think you want a one-time order, HD is the way to go. You can always modify your shipping dates (i.e. spread them further than 30 days apart) or cancel any time (although I don’t think you’ll want to) from your Teambeachbody.com account. No questions asked.
Shakeology Discount Option #2 – Sign up for a Club Membership
If the discounted shipping isn’t enough, signing up for a Beachbody Club membership is a great way to further bring down the price AND you’ll get access to the streaming workouts in Beachbody on Demand. Even with the quarterly fee of $38.87 (or about $12.96/month), you’ll pay just about the same as if you just got the Shakeology BY ITSELF under the super saver shipping. Why not get two for the price of one?
Shakeology Discount Option #3 – Order a Challenge Pack on Sale
When you order a Challenge Pack you already know that you get an awesome workout package with bonuses, a nutrition guide, and entry to a challenge group with free coaching and peer support to guide you through the program, but did you know that you also get one month’s worth of Shakeology included in the bundle?
That’s already pretty awesome, but are you ready for another great strategy?
Each month, not only are the regular Challenge Packs available, but there are usually several $140 or $160 Challenge Pack Sales going on, which means when you purchase one of the sale-priced bundles, you could be getting that month’s Shakeology for as low as just $10.
For example, this month (Aug. 2016) the Challenge Pack specials are:
- Country Heat™ + Shakeology: $140 USD (reg. $160 USD)
- 21 Day Fix® or EXTREME® + Shakeology: $140 USD (reg. $160 USD)
- 21 Day Fix Kickstart + Shakeology: $180 USD (reg. $205 USD)
- 21 Day Fix EXTREME Kickstart + Shakeology: $180 USD (reg. $205 USD)
- 22 Minute Hard Corps™ + Shakeology: $140 USD, (+ a FREE PT Sandbag + Portion Control Containers)
- 3-Day Refresh® + Shakeology: $140 USD (reg. $160 USD)
- CIZE® + Shakeology: $140 USD (reg. $160 USD)
$140 Challenge Pack minus a $130 retail Shakeology order equals, yup – $10 for your first bag!
But Wait, There’s More… :)
Not only is the workout program + Shakeology bundle a great option, but Challenge Packs also include a 30-day trial Club Membership which gives you instant streaming access to hundreds of Beachbody on Demand workouts.
The Challenge Pack purchase is such a good deal that Beachbody will only let a customer do it once. So choose a Challenge Pack for a program you don’t already have, get your discounted Shakeology, and win!
At the risk of sounding like an infomercial… here’s the ole, “But wait, you can save even more…”
Shakeology Discount Option #4 – Sign up as a Coach (save 25% AND earn rewards)
The most popular way people buy their Shakeology is by signing up with a Coach membership.
But I’m “not qualified”. I’m “still on my fitness journey”. I “don’t have time” to be a coach!
Don’t worry. You don’t have to get scared thinking that once you become a Coach you’ll have to be some kind of expert fitness instructor. A “Coach” is simply the name that Beachbody uses for their independent distributors. Being a “Discount Coach” is exactly what the term implies, someone who joins for the discount. It’s how I first started, and with all the money I’ve saved, I don’t regret it for a moment.
Being a Coach is THE best deal available
Coaching (or becoming a discount coach) gets you the biggest Shakeology discount, and it comes with lots of PERKS. You are under no obligation to sell or promote Beachbody, but the option is there if you want it, and you’ll get your discount no matter what.
As a coach, you are given the ability to EARN BACK money with generous commissions. Beachbody does all the advertising (you’ve no doubt seen the infomercials for Insanity, P90x, 21 Day Fix, etc.), they provide you with 3 websites that you can use to share with your friends. And as a nice “thank you”, if anyone buys from your referral link, Beachbody rewards you (every Thursday) with a commission check. Sharing with others or not, you will still get your 25% off, so that’s pretty cool.
So I hope this information was helpful to you in deciding the best way to order Shakeology (and I hope it wasn’t too much math). :)
Just to recap, here are the options we’ve covered:
- Retail purchase option (one-time order)
- Discount Option #1: $2 Deep discount shipping option (auto-ship/home direct)
- Discount Option #2: 10% discount option (Club membership)
- Discount Option #3: Order a Challenge Pack on Sale
- Discount Option #4: 25% discount option + get paid for referrals (Coach membership)
P.S. Remember, whichever option you choose, Shakeology comes with a 30-day “bottom-of-the-bag” money back guarantee. That means you can drink it for a whole month, and if you don’t think it’s helping you feel great, or you just don’t like it, you can send it (the empty bag) back. You’ll get a full refund from the company (less s & h), no questions asked. Beachbody has earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, and this is one of the reasons why.
