Sounds like a good deal, thanks for the heads up.

I'll look into that, thanks!

Nothing wrong with creatine.

I wouldn't buy cheaper supplements, I would just look for deals and savings on the quality stuff. Look for savings in the other food you buy imo... but I use whey protein PWO only so mine lasts.

That's what i meant. If i couldn't find deals on quality products, i would have just kept paying what i have been.

Again... LOL.

Kre-alkalyn is junk... You're much better off with tried and true straight creapure monohydrate. Unless you like overpaying for a mono+baking soda blend.

The stuff i ordered has a 90 money back guarantee, so if in 2 weeks I'm not liking it, I'll send it back. Maybe my cx-5 was so good because i wasn't buying good mono hydrate before appreciate the advice though guys!

Tried krealklyn before and didn't notice a difference. Didn't use regular mono for the longest time because I was worried about bloating, but it never happened. If I was going to buy a pricey creatine, I'd try something like "concret."

Some creatine monohydrates have different consistency depending on the brand, varying from granulated sugar to powdered sugar. The powdered sugar like creatine mixes much better.

ON protein is expensive now. About to make an order and probably going to try Myofusion or ON's natural whey this time around.

OP go to truenutrition.com and make your own blend of protein. They will show you the price per pound and you can choose how much you want. The shipping is a little steep unless you in cali but they have the quality and you can do alot of stuff with the blend to fit you needs/wants.

Oh btw kre-alkyn is garbage. sorry to put it bluntly. Do not worry about creatine monohydrate. It has been studied over and over again. it boils down to a couple different amino acids connected together. Ppl who say that it puts too much strain on their kidneys are being a little dramatic. I mean if you have sensitive kidney then it might affect you differently but for all the bros who love to get pumped up in the gym and then go boozin on the weekends, that alcohol is probably putting more strain on your kidney that the creatine is.

only my opinion tho take it how you want.

the lowest I've ever gotten ON is about 85 shipped for 10lbs. ON is defintely the better protein, but dymatize is still good quality.

You missed out, gone are the days where you could pick up a 10lb bag of ON for less than $50
