Yes, the price of Shakeology is going up!
When Shakeology was launched in 2009 the cost of a gallon of gas was $1.78 and today we’re pushing $4 a gallon. Unfortunately inflation is a part of life (and please don’t get me started on THAT topic!! haha). With all the work that goes into ingredient sourcing and distribution, I’m honestly surprised it hasn’t gone up before now! If you think Beachbody skimps on ingredients like so many other companies do, you need to watch this video. There’s a reason why Shakeology isn’t “cheap.”
Beachbody had the option of charging shipping on the Shakeology HD (Home Direct) orders instead of raising the price on the Chocolate and Greenberry flavors. I’m glad they decided to continue to honor the free shipping for those of us on Shakeology home direct! Since using cheaper ingredients is not an option they raised the price $0.33 a day. The nutrition experts at Beachbody even improved the formula to make it even healthier than before!
So, how much will it cost now?
Beachbody is not adjusting the price of the regular (whey) Chocolate and Greenberry flavors until April 1st. At that time the cost will be $129.95. But if you are currently on home direct (monthly autoship) you are LOCKED IN to the CURRENT Shakeology price. That means you KEEP your $119.95 (customer) or $89.96 (coach) rate. You still receive free shipping and are GRANDFATHERED in to hold that price for LIFE!
I also heard that if you contact Beachbody customer service before April 1st they will also work with you in case you would rather receive shipment every 45 or 60 days instead of monthly and you will still receive the free shipping AND lower price. BUT I would definitely contact customer service to get confirmation on that!
So, if you are currently on Shakeology Home Direct there’s nothing you need to do now to get locked in on the lower price. If not, you will just need to place your next order before April 1st and select the monthly autoship (home direct) option to get locked in at $119.95 or $89.96 per bag.
Another thing to consider: if you’re a Shakeology fan it might be worth it to sign-up for a “coach” membership to save even MORE money every month. If you do that before April 1st you can lock in Shakeo at the coach price which is only $89.96 a month!! The monthly fee to be a coach is $15.95 but that still saves you almost $20 a month AND you get a 25% discount on all other BB products too. 🙂 And you don’t have to work the business at all if that’s not your thing…in fact around 80% of coaches sign-up just to get the 25% discount on products.
If you think you might be interested in doing that please contact me and I’ll walk you through the steps of how to get everything setup.
NOTE: the price of VEGAN Shakeology (Chocolate and Tropical) is not going up. Starting on April 1st the price for all Shakeology flavors is going to be the same.
Dang it…Shakeology is already TOO expensive!
Sure, the ingredient list is impressive but what’s up with the price? I hear a lot of people say, “I just can’t afford that!” Well, how much does it cost when you go to the grocery store and purchase 30 meals or 60 snacks? When you go to the grocery store and fill up your cart with boxes of sugar-filled cereal that cost $4+ a box, or spend at least $10 a day on your daily habit of energy drinks, coffee shop drinks or fast food do you ever complain about that? The bottom line is: you will spend money on the things you feel are important are to you! If you don’t feel like Shakeology is something that could potentially have a positive effect on your life and isn’t worth the price then there’s nothing I can say that will change your mind! Personally, I still think Shakeology is a bargain at $129.95 per bag. You may not feel the same way, and that’s cool! Life is full of choices and it’s up to us to decide how and where we spend our money.
This video is pretty goofy but I think it does a great job of explaining the true value of Shakeology. You can continue to make your own shakes, smoothies and juices at home (I still do that occasionally too even though I drink Shakeology) but don’t think it’s the same thing. Do your research and be sure to compare the ingredients and serving size of Shakeology to other “health” shakes. One bag of Shakeology will last you 30-60 days depending on the serving size. Many products that claim to save you money only contain a 15-day supply.
