At Thrive Market, we strive to give members great value and competitive pricing. We use reference prices (“Reference Prices”), throughout the website to estimate the quality and price information from comparable vendors and to show the price difference of our prices and products. By providing Reference Prices and refreshing such prices every 6 months, when available, our goal is to provide useful information about non-sale pricing when you shop.
The Reference Price is based on a brand or manufacturer’s suggested retail price for a product, or if a Thrive Market brand item, the suggested retail price of a comparable branded product, published within the last six months. For Thrive Market-owned brands, we may calculate Reference Prices based on the unit of measure (i.e. per oz), where the product packing size differs between our product and the comparable branded product, in order to reach a fair comparison.
Our Reference Prices may not be the prevailing market price and do not imply or guarantee that a customer cannot purchase the product at a lower cost at a different site or with a different retailer, as pricing can vary across other retailers, geographic location, time of year or whether there is a special promotion, etc. We encourage members to also do their own research. When you are shopping elsewhere, if you find a better product price, visit our Pricing Guarantee Program in our FAQs.
Savings: Our Site and Services estimate projected savings for each customer based on responses to the membership signup quiz about how often you shop and an average savings per order of $32. Total stated savings during your membership term are based on purchasing history (if available), the dated Reference Prices of previously purchased items and savings from promotions. All projected and stated savings are solely estimates and are subject to change at any time without notice.
