Default Ideal Weight Away?

Has anyone made a purchase on the Ideal Weight Away website (http://www.idealweightaway.com/)? Their prices are significantly cheaper for IP products than my coach. I'm wondering if this is some sort of scam. Has anyone ordered from there? Were the products defective/expired?

I love the idea of staying on IP all the way, and buying it cheaper would be GREAT!

Are they really significantly lower? I pay $4 for each packet (my coach lets you mix and match) and I think there are 7 packets in a box. This site charges a little less than that, but I am not sure what their shipping charges are.

Their website is not that user friendly either. I picked a product just to see what shipping would be and had to enter all of my info to get through the shopping cart to get a final price. It kept telling me to "select shipping" and every time I clicked on that it said "no shipping selected" so I never could figure it out.

Price for the item I was looking at was $1.10 less than at my local center. Even if shipping was free that's really not enough to get me to switch. My wife and I usually buy 5 boxes a week so the $5.50 in savings isn't really worth waiting an additional week to get in the mail.

The boxes I purchase range anywhere from $30 to $40, but I think i'll keep exploring to see if there are some more user friendly websites!

www.plainprotein.com

very reputable, I have been using them to get my IP supplements. You can get free USPS shipping and they are very quick.

I buy loads of foods from ...

http://www.doctorsbestweightloss.com/

They've got GREAT pricing and I find their products very comparable to IP's.

I know I'm opening up a can of worms here, but I'll share what my coach told me...not saying it's completely accurate but I'll tell you anyway.

Apparently it is illegal to sell IP products anywhere on the Internet. It is approved only to be sold in an actual clinic.

Headquarters knows, in particular, about plainprotein.com and that's why their website changes quite frequently and/or is out of order. They think a clinic owner (ie. Daisy) orders extra quantities and sells it from an undetectable location.

Again, I know a lot of coaches are in it only for the money, but just wanted to share what I've learned.

I stopped in a clinic in Palm Beach, FL this winter and bought some Ideal Protein and they also sold ideal weight away so I bought some of that as well.
It was allright, but not as good as Ideal Protein. They ship both liens to the US and Canada for less than my local clinic charges!

Plain Protein is backing off on real IP products though. It's like they're selling what they have then replacing them with a cheaper version that is not IP.

This is exactly correct! I just ordered a bottle of what I THOUGHT were IP Cal-Mag pills and they turned out NOT to be. Be VERY careful ordering from the Plain Protein site! The products are not what they appear to be.
