    Thanks Heaps, only just placed a couple of orders with them:( but I'll keep the code and have another look, don't forget UK customers keep your purchases under 18 unless you are prepared to pay customs charges, don't always catch you but its a chance you take, seems to be more chance of escaping these if you pay the extra shipping costs and use DHL. Mine came in 2 days - faster than UK mail!!

    I don't think non members of Phoenix rising should be allowed to come here with one post just to advertise their iherb code to make money?

    I am not talking about heaps real....ok with members sharing discounts but concerned about non Phoenix rising members bombarding the board with iherb code to make money off people. These code are seriously all over the Internet, like thousands and thousands of them, anyone who buys even once from them gets a code to give to others to make commissions off others purchases.

    Again.....I am not talking about you, heaps! You are a long time member and have only nice intentions to help others save money.

    P.s. all of the iherb codes are only valid for first time customers anyways, just an FYI! I have been buying things from them for years....they are a great place for supplements.

    P.S. anyone want to use my code? Lol just kidding!

    Yeah I generally buy 6-8 supplements for under $100. Iherb is a bargain.

    It would be nice if iherb gave all the members here a code for an extra5% off, im sure we have paid a few of their houses off. Or even a code we enter and that 5% got donated here, the amount of supps bought from people here we could then afford a vertual reality forum and talk face to face, lol.

    By the way, hint hint!! IHERB

    Don't they give them out freely? Mine is GAV074. After you check out your cart, they pop it up with the receipt if you want to send it to others.

    Yes I agree heaps the revenue they must get from the bods on here must be astronomical, surely they could afford to give a little back.
    The code they give out is only for new customers so needs passing on. I suppose if anyone new to iherb wants to order they should just ask here for an uptodate code.

    That would be cool if there could be a code that would make donations to the boards.

    Its almost impossible to make any money off your code unless you give it to someone you know who is a new customer. I've had a code for many years but there are about 5,000 people who posted theirs on all the online coupon sites online. It like a giant swamp of codes.

    I think I have made a total of less than $4 off my code lol.

    Or I wish we could get revenue to donate to board members who are very much in need of financial assistance to try supplements.

    Just placed my first order by iHerb. Thank you for your code. The discount code is still working! :thumbsup:

    Heaps code was still working. It seams it can be used over and over again by new customer with there first order.

    Fine by me if somebody is making of it, although I doubt anybody is making a lot of money because there so many codes out. It's more a small extra discount you get if you can bring new customers. That's fair I think.

    According to iHerb website it's safer to use Global Airmail (also via DHL) instead of DHL Express: "As a general rule, orders going through DHL or UPS are a lot more scrutinized by customs in your country and subject to more custom duties than DHL Global Airmail"

    For Belgium: more info (dutch): http://www.fiscus.fgov.be/interfdanl/nl/citizens/pakket.htm#a
    - orders above 22 euro (+/- 29$) --> Pay vat
    - orders above 150 euro (+/- 195$) --> Pay import tax

    Because I kept my order under 22 €, my shipping cost are 2$ more (6$ instead of 4$ if you order more then 40$) but that's still cheaper then paying 21% VAT.

    Good point! Why are supplements in USA so much cheaper. :( Is there any good European alternative for iHerb (Schengen Area). Equal product ranges and prices. if not ... a tip for iHerb: Why not open an European subsidiary. :thumbsup:

    Some product are hard to get over here. Like for example Yucca from Nature's way (or any other brand)

    Best Regards, Rolo

    If heapsreal's code ever goes out of date, mine which you can feel welcome to use for a $10 off of a 1st iherb purchase of $40 or more (or $5 off if less spent) is QET895 .

    lol heapsreal.. I hope you are doing a roaring trade there to help pay for all your supplements :D (I think Ive only had 1-2 people use my code the whole time Ive had one..that would equate to 10% off a purchase for me) but you are right that this site could make some money off of ordering and having its own code for people here to use if first using iherb. (I do think its the best and cheapest online herbal supplement etc company. Even my CFS specialist recommends iherb to his patients so they can get things cheaper..thou he dont profit off of it at all).

    when u log into iherb u can see how many have used your code, i think i have had a few(handful maybe) use it and a couple more use those peoples codes for which i get a smaller discount for. Its really scratching each others back because when one does his first order and gets a discount they then get a discount code to give to others which u then get a cut of.
    I think iherb have great products but there delivery service is the best out of anything i have used for other companies etc. iherb orders reach me within a couple of days. one online pharmacy i use takes 6 weeks minimum but they sell a med i use quite cheap, half the price i pay locally which is nothing to sneeze at when its $80.

    Australian supps are so expensive generally they are a weaker stregnth, probably a 2/3s less pills and 3 times the price, just rediculous. Then things like dhea and melatonin which we can buy online for legal reason and only choice is to buy them locally from a compounding chemist with a script is also rediculously priced eg dhea 25mg x 100 $80+, where iherb can get 25mg dhea x 300for $10, we are just getting ripped off locally. same rediculous mark up for melatonin. I will say this that compounded transdermal creams of pregnenolone and dhea are alot more economical. ALso cant order dhea from overseas with just a doctors script, tried it customs wrote me a nasty letter about importing steriods and destroyed my order, apparently u need a special licence which probably isnt worth the cost or hassle of getting one. Thats why alot of us aussie buy online.
