Company I Love: Thrive Market

Let’s just get this out of the way: This is not a sponsored post, and I’m not being compensated for it in any way. I bought my Thrive membership with my own hard-earned money. I’ve been impressed with my membership and the company as a whole, so I wanted to share it with you so you can benefit, too!

True story: I wrote most of this post (including the previous paragraph) a couple of weeks ago and never got around to finishing it. Then today, after I placed my Thrive order, a message popped up, saying that if a friend of mine uses this link, I’ll get Thrive credit. So now I know that, but I still love the company, and all of what you’re about to read is 100% true.

What is Thrive Market, you ask? Thrive is basically an online version of Costco, only it’s all healthy stuff and you don’t necessarily have to buy in bulk. You pay an annual membership fee ($60), and that gives you access to tons of discounted healthy products, ranging from cereals, snacks, and nut butters to beauty products to pet products. It doesn’t take long to make up that annual fee, as the products are all things I’d buy anyway, and they’re a dollar or two cheaper than what’s in the store. Even better for me is that a lot of these things are products I can’t buy locally, so having them delivered to my door is really convenient and saves me an hour-each-way drive.

My last Thrive Market order, at least what you could see from the top of the box. I really like those Miso-Cups and the seaweed snacks. If you spend more than $49, you get free shipping, so I added a few more Miso Cups than I probably needed. Nom nom nom.

One of the best things about Thrive Market is its Thrive Gives program. For every paid membership, they donate a membership to a needy family, and every time you check out, you have the option of donating a percentage of your total to one of those families. Since most families living in poverty can’t afford nutritious food, this is a fantastic program.

Thrive isn’t going to replace your weekly trip to the grocery store — you can’t get fresh produce, frozen veggies, or anything else perishable. But they have great bargains on pantry staples, and especially if you’re like me and have to take half a day to restock those staples, Thrive is a great option. I highly recommend it.

If you’re interested in Thrive, you can try it for a month before paying the annual fee. And if you want to be a good friend to me, remember to use my link. Wink wink.

What’s your favorite healthy pantry staple?
