The Medifast 2 Weeks Free Promotion How Does it Work? How Much Money Do You Save?


Visitors: 414

I've been on the medifast diet since last year and have had a good deal of success. Most of my coworkers and friends know about my experience and sometimes ask me questions about it. Last week, a coworker called and asked about medifast's “two weeks free" promotion. She wondered would it really save her any money and if so, how much. This article will cover how much money you actually save if you correctly use the promotional codes for this offer.

First, to get your savings, you have to remember to enter the code when you go to check out. At the bottom of the page, there is a blank space for entering the code. If you forget to fill it in, nothing will happen and you won't be offered the freebies. A lot of people forget this step. Also, the codes change often so if for some reason you notice that you haven't been offered free food, then you may have an old code.

So, to show my coworker how this works, we completed her order during our lunch break. She had to sign up for an account by just entering her name and email address. Once she had an account name and password, she was able to place an order. As this was her first time out, we ordered her the basic four week women's package (aka the five plus one plan because you eat five prepackaged, provided meals per day as well as one “lean and green meal" you make yourself. )

At the bottom of the first order page, there was a blank space which said “coupon discount. " We entered the code in that space. Next, she was asked to chose her shipping method. Because she ordered a package, she qualified for discounted shipping, so she went for expedited shipping as she was anxious to get started. This ran about $25. However, if she had chosen standard shipping which only takes a few days longer for delivery, the cost of shipping would have been under $5. Once she hit continue after choosing her shipping method, the next screen said “Congratulations. You have received 1 week of free food. " (The second week free comes with signing on for a free VIP membership, which I'll talk about in a bit. ) The cost of medifast's women's four week package was $299.00. By splurging on expedited delivery, she bumped her cost up to about $324, which would be about $2.25 per meal.

As this was just yesterday, she's not yet received her package, but each free medifast meal she's given (which should be about 35) will save her the approximate $2.25 price tag of each meal. This not only adds up to over $70, it delays how long she'll have to place another order and pay again for shipping.

While the medifast coupon codes work on any of the packages (variety, enhanced, and momentum) they don't work on individual items. There is also a free VIP auto ship option which offers you freebies (it's often books or shakers), another free week of food (bringing the total up to 2 weeks), and 5% off any subsequent orders. If you're going to be on this diet for more than a few months and have more than twenty pounds to lose, the VIP makes sense. Basically, auto ship just means the company will automatically ship the packages you select at the time you run out of food from your last package. You'll automatically get your free food without needing to do anything else. VIP membership is totally free with no extra charges and will ensure savings via free meals and 5% off in the future with no extra work on your part. This saves time too.
