Excellent service, great prices, great sales.
Puritan's Pride is a company that distributes pills and health oriented products both Homeopathic and regular. They are an extremely customer service oriented company that I've been using for years.
You can go to a secured web page for ordering and Puritan's Pride accepts Master card, Visa and Amex credit cards, debit cards and checks as well. They offer a money back guarantee, something in all my years of shopping here I've never had to use. You can start an account and have a list of your favorites by registering. You can also enroll in the Life Rewards program which will give you points for every dollar you spend Their product comes in PETE bottles. PETE is a plastic that has excellent barrier properties against air and moisture when compared to other plastics, which helps ensure freshness.
The shipping at times is free or a nominal $4.95 per order (recently went up $1.00) and their shipping is astonishingly fast. I was promised 4 days but past experience has seen the orders come sooner. You can upgrade to faster shipping methods but I don't bother since my experience with fast delivery has been excellent. They will keep an accounting of your favorite items so you can re order quickly. They ship internationally to Japan, Switzerland and Austria. It's reassursing to to know that they were rated #1 in 2007 in brand name catalog consumer satisfaction.They manufacture all their own products and are approved by the Good Practices Seal. They have been doing business for 40 years.

I use joint support and herbal supplements( Glucosamine, Fish Oil, Flax seed, Red Yeast Rice), Nutritional oils, multi vitamins, Antioxidants and Calcium supplements. The prices are amazing. You can count on a bogo (buy one get one free only it's usually buy one get TWO free!!! whenever you shop. So for instance when I order my Glucosamine I pay $16.39. I get two more bottles for that price, amazing yes?
They have over 150 products. The catalog is easy to follow with product by product sections. My orders always seem to arrive incredibly fast, usually within 2-3 days. I love that I can just order over the phone or online and have it delivered to my door. You can scroll through 5 pages at a time online.

A little pill info/test: Dissolve a pill in vinegar. If it dissolves quickly in vinegar it will dissolve quickly in your stomach.
I love the link to pill size. I can avoid pills I feel are too large to swallow buy checking this chart. Each pill will give you the quantity you need to take per day. I am most impressed with the incredibly fast service and the great bargains.
