Looked at this membership a few months ago and they've been sending me these offers since. Not entirely sure if any of it's worth it. The vest isn't worth £20, a few things are samplers, and the vouchers are subject to minimum orders (though admittedly worth the face value if you're going to order anyway).

So, for the £30 you're getting £30vouchers back (but have to spend £195 if you want free delivery, at least £45 minimum with musclefood just to order with £5 delivery, unsure on other two min spend) and some tat. Then the membership gives you discounts on stuff you may (will?) find cheaper anyway.

That's just my impression, you've ordered - what's it like?

It's all junk.

Yeah, it's just the general thing with discount memberships, never sure if you're getting a good deal or would find the same prices anyway without paying up front. But if you've used them and got your £30 back in discounts then that's what I wondered.
It says discount on 'brands' is that only from particular stores? i.e. can I go into Tesco and get the discount on PHD?

My original £195 was

£5 My Protein £55 min order for free delivery
£10 Musclefood - £75 min order for free delivery
£15 Protein Supermarket £65 min order for free delivery

so, you get the vouchers, but to make them worthwhile and get free delivery you need to spend £195 in total. My perception (personal opinion only, may be not shared) is that the vouchers lead you to buying from a particular place, whereas you probably can get the same cheaper elsewhere, so adding in delivery as well isn't an overall saving. You've already paid that £30 'saving' up front too, hence why I was asking if the future discounts were found to be worthwhile.

Again, these are just questions about how it works in reality, not dismissing the deal out of hand - even if my gut reaction says otherwise

to clarify previous comment, lets say.

Join a discount club for £30 and get £5, £10, and £15 vouchers to use.
Spent £30 so far
Use the £5 voucher on item at £10 and add on £2 delivery. spent £37 running total
Use the £10 voucher on item at £45 and add on £5 delivery. spent £77 running total
Use the £15 voucher on item at £30 and add on £5 delivery. Spent £97 running total

or same items can be found elsewhere for a conservative amount less (you had to buy from above as you had the vouchers)
spend nothing up front
Buy item at £9.50. £9.50 running total
Buy item at £43. £52.50 running total
Buy item at £29.50. £82 running total

So, leaving £15 to allow for delivery if the theoretical stores charged delivery; or £15 that needed to be made back in future discounts, so at least £77 further needs to be spent to make it back - but bearing in mind again the codes are subject to their own minimum order quantities, and only from particular vendors, so once again you may be buying at higher than you can find elsewhere, or with freely available codes.

Hopefully that makes sense, and clarifies my thought process. If I've missed anything obvious then let me know.

You're using different sums to rubbish the offer.

If you can find the items I'd buy cheaper then I'm all ears. As I haven't found another way, even with these companies directly.

Assume all those voting cold actually buy the products these companies sell?

Sorry, I said I wasn't rubbishing the offer and was open to real-life feedback on my assumptions (not just on this, but all discount clubs). I'm open to taking advantage of the offer, but feel instinctively that it's a long slog to make it pay.

I was clearly laying out my own thought process on how I thought it worked out, and wasn't using different calculations, just saying that if you happened to find the £85 of items at only £3 cheaper elsewhere (not so difficult to imagine, given the amount of discount codes freely available, and the number of vendors around) then it was no great deal. The £3 less was highly conservative and the 20% average discount on £77 future purchase was generous (maybe?) in order to break even.

But again, wanting to hear real-life feedback as I'm happy to try these things out if I can be convinced they're worthwhile.

Don't know about others voting cold (I haven't either way yet) but I do buy these, maybe different brands there's so many, but generally quite cheap when and where I find them and take advantage of whatever deals available, not sticking to particular brand or product.

Is there a reason Ross' post has been pulled?

I was trying to reply to him to ask a question.
