I just ordered the 30 pack unflavored powder mix from my local CVS. Thier cost is 63 dollars, i dont know how much they will mark it up but i am sure it will be competitive with internet prices if not cheaper, plus they can have it the next day or day after. So if your interested in trying some going to your local CVS isnt a bad idea. I cant wait to try this stuff out!

You might want to try ordering VSL#3 through their website. I take the capsules, shipping is included in the price, and it is still at least $10 a bottle less than any store I can get it from in my area. Believe me, I've shopped around looking for it. They even ship it packed in ice, usually second day air through UPS. Saves me a bunch of money.

I'm with Brandon. I order it on their website, get it second day air on ice and the shipping is included. I use the capsules, I can't stand to mix and drink the stuff.
