If you recall my time on the Slow Carb Diet, you may recall that I’m a big fan of Vega protein powder. The one I use has a good amount of greens and antioxidants, a tasty flavor without sugar, and doesn’t use any animal products like whey or casein, which are not necessary for our diet.
Because I have a Vega smoothie every day now, I’m always looking for a cheap way to acquire some. Costco has been my go-to place, but on a recent trip they had taken to selling a slightly different formulation that isn’t nearly as good (and which, oddly, isn’t even listed on Vega’s site).
So, as one does these days, I went to Amazon. They sold the Costco-sized tubs there, and the price was fantastic too.
So I was sold. I figured I’d buy two of them so I could save on shipping (the current deal is that anything eligible over $25 qualifies for free shipping, though they have changed this from time to time) and went to put them in my cart.
Instead of the “Add to Cart” button, was a “Try Prime” button. Apparently, I could not purchase this item unless I subscribed to Amazon Prime.
The hell with this company. I realized then that I needed to find an alternative.
