Wednesday Giveaway: get $50 of FREE supplements and groceries from iHerb!  »

Tune out the iTablet/iPad/iWhatever that Apple is sending everyone in a tizzy over today, and win $50 of free stuff from iHerb! And no, iHerb isn’t an online medical marijuana delivery service, you big stoner; it’s a discount supplements retailer that sells practically everything. Every brand you can think of, like Now Foods and Twinlabs, and even some of the more obscure items, like vegan glucosamine. Best of all, they have fast shipping, so if you live in California, their free ground shipping will get your supplies in two days at the most.

I went over to Whole Foods to compare prices, because let’s face it, not all of us are lucky enough to have awesome co-ops like Rainbow nearby, and that sometimes means Randian nutjob John Galt Mackey gets our money. (I’m a Rainbow loyalist myself, but there’s only one Rainbow and a zillion Whole Foods.) Sure enough, iHerb was cheaper by an average of 20% on the supplements I compared. My usual Twinlab B12 dots were $19.49 at Whole Foods, $10.24 at iHerb.

iHerb also has a secret grocery section with baking ingredients from brands like Bob’s Red Mill and Arrowhead Mills. So if you do a lot of baking, you can load up on supplies once, then reorder everything again as a standing order once you’re about to run out. I’d love to see iHerb set up an automatic subscription like Amazon’s Subscribe and Save, but this will do in the meantime.

But  none of that really matters because listen up: you’re going to get $50 of free stuff from them just by answering a ridiculous contest question, which I am just now thinking up. OK, here goes. All you have to do is post the answer to this question:

In the movie The Stöned Age, what kind of car do Joe and Hubbs drive?

Then I’ll pick someone at random who answered correctly. And yes it’s pot-themed because it’s iHERB, get it?? I’m just killing myself with the dad jokes over here. Go ahead and cheat by looking at IMDb, I won’t know the difference, and you’ll impress everyone with your encyclopedic knowledge of mid-’90s coming-of-age cinema.

You can also get another $5 off by checking out with coupon code BUY123. So even if you don’t win, use that same coupon at checkout and save $5 anyway! Fuck yeah free stuff!
