Vitacost is a one-stop shop for quality vitamins, supplements, bath & beauty products, home and pet products, sports nutrition products, and health foods. Items are sold at reasonable prices, sometimes even discounted up to 50%. There are over 45,000 different products on the website from over 2,500 different brands, including Vitacost’s own brand of high quality items. Vitacost asks their customers to send them a request for items that they would like but are not carried on the website currently. Vitacost will do their best to make it available to the customer.
If a customer is unsure of how to use a product, a comprehensive description accompanies the product on its own page.
Orders over $49 in the United States will receive free shipping, while orders under that ship for only $4.99 and international shipping is available for orders outside of the United States. Vitacost has friendly customer service representatives in their help center available for any questions or comments.
Customers can feel secure with their purchases because Vitacost offers free returns on unopened products, not charging any restocking fees.
There are no customer reviews or testimonials on the Vitacost website, but Trustpilot.com has many reviews on Vitacost. They are mostly mixed, but it is overwhelmingly rated 5 stars. All of the lower ratings have to do with dealing with returning products and customer service.
Scamadviser.com also rates Vitacost.com with a 99% safety rating.
Each item that is for sale is rated individually on the product page by customers that have purchased it.
There are several coupons offered through the Vitacost website. The code SAVEON55 saves $5 on a purchase of $55 or more, SAVEON100 saves $15 on a purchase of $100 or more, and SAVEON180 saves $30 on a purchase of $180 or more.
There are several deals available daily, giving an extra 10 to 15% off of products of a certain category.
Vitacost is dedicated to providing products that enhance day to day living, ranging from vitamins and supplements to foods and beverages. In addition to the products that it offers, Vitacost promotes healthy lifestyle choices and examples on how to incorporate them into your daily life by suggesting recipes as well as sharing the benefits of the products listed on the website. The website is extremely easy to use and there are suggestions of products by very specific sections that are relevant to popular diets or trends in nutrition.
The important thing that the website is missing are its customer testimonials and reviews for the website itself, not just the products. The company is absolutely legitimate and trustworthy, providing a way for customer to access products that are conducive to a healthy lifestyle. The lack of reviews is not a huge deterrent, as Scam Adviser’s rating of the site gives Vitacost an almost perfect rating. While TrustPilot’s average rating for Vitacost is 7.8 out of 10, we are confident in giving Vitacost the rating of 4 out of 5 stars. A perfect score would be achieved if the website had its own area for customer ratings and testimonials.
