There is no doubt that these days there are so many online stores for dietary supplements to buy from.
A customer gets confused where to shop from, which one offers the best rates, which one ships for free and e.t.c.
It is very common that you and I, the customers, have to make at least 3 to 5 orders from different stores before we stick to one particular online store.
But how do you choose? What do you looking for? What influences your choice?
Is it only the lowest price or you are influenced by other factors like shipping rates, discount code program, loyalty credit, freebies, trial products?
With this guide "The Buyer's Guide to iHerb Coupon 2017", I would like to show you how my choice had been influenced by iherb’s ability to offer much more than just the lowest rates for dietary supplements on the market.
Short Overview Of iHerb
iHerb.com is one of the largest online stores where you can buy anything from
vitamin c, protein powder, fat burners to toothpaste, cosmetics, food and grocery, baby products, eco and bioproducts for home, dogs and cats products. Basically, you can buy anything from here (as long as it is legal, of course).
The company is based in the USA and ships worldwide via airmail, DHL, UPS, and via Doves, of course.
How To Make Your First Order From iHerb
STEP 1: First you need to register. Go to iherb.com and make your registration.
STEP 2: At the top of the website, just below the browser URL field, there are 2 links that you may want to check.
These are Daily and Weekend Deals, Brands of the Week, and Trial products.
Here you will usually see products discounted to up to 90%. Cool, huh?
STEP 3: Look through the Trial Products Section.
You may find a trial of a product that you would like to try before buying the whole pack. Most of the trial products cost cents.
STEP 4: This is huge! The link I will provide right now is not easy to be seen.
This is the Clearance Category. You can save up to 60% off.
Here you can find everything from pop chips to supplements and cosmetics.
Click here to go to the Clearance Category and find something cheap.
STEP 5: Let's find some hidden combo deals. I will show you how to search for them.
I will go to my favorite Sports category and I will find one of my favorite whey protein powders Optimum Nutrition, Gold Standard 100% Whey, Cookies & Cream, 5 lbs.
I will click on the product to open and will look below the main product picture on the left to see if there is a "Bundle banner" like on the screenshot below:
STEP 6: When you are ready to make the purchase go to your shopping cart.
Now you have a clear view of your products and discounts.
You might be wondering "Where to enter the iherb coupon code/iherb discount code for $5 dollars off?
The place for the iherb new customer coupon is just below your products in your shopping cart.
Enter the iherb coupon code you have (or you can use mine, of course, my iherb code is KOV618) and hit the apply button.
The iherb discount code will be applied immediately as seen in the screenshot.
Now you see, the total cost for both products is $76.04 USD, as a first-time customer and with the additional discounts, you will buy the 2 products for $64.44 USD, this is a total of $11.60 USD discount, not bad?
STEP 7: Choose how you would like your order to be shipped.
Unfortunately, there isn't any iherb free shipping code, but all order over $20 USD are eligible for free shipping in the USA.
The delivery time is 1-5 business days with UPS or US Post.
The lowest international shipping rates start from $4 USD.
The are limitations on the weight that can be shipped via the lowest shipping option (airmail).
To see which is the best shipping option and rate to your country, look below the place for applying the iherb discount code.
There is a Get Shipping Estimates.
Click on the blue link Change. A pop-up window will appear.
Choose your country address. Click on Save Preferences.
Now the shipping options and rates will be available for your address country.
STEP 8: When you are ready, click on the orange proceed to checkout button (bottom right corner).
Choose your shipping address. Choose shipping option and then next.
Now you can choose which payment option to use - PayPal or direct payment with credit/debit card.
I would go with PayPal as it is 10 times faster.
Click next and fill in your billing address.
Click next and review your order before you place it.
Look if everything is ok with your shipping address and payment details.
If everything is fine click on the Place Order button.
Congrats! Your order has been placed.
You will receive an email when iherb ships your order.
But Why Do I Keep Insisting That iHerb Is The Best Store To Buy Dietary Supplements Online?
Reason 1: Loyalty Pays You 5% Back
Since January 2016, each time you make a purchase through iherb.com, iHerb gives you 5% Loyalty Credit.
iHerb loyalty credit equals to 5% of your order total, excluding shipping charges.
The iHerb loyalty credit is available to be used towards your next order once your last order has shipped.
Reason 2: Once you become a regular customer at iherb.com you will start receiving some little free gifts from the iHerb team with your orders.
I find this very touchy and customer oriented. Just see below.
This is just a little part of what iHerb gave me as a courtesy for being a loyal client (or as it used to be called a VIP client).
