So you want to keep fit and you plan on doing it the Seedly way — meaning you’re going to do it prudently and as a fiscally responsible adult.

You’ve already got your cheap gym membership.

And you’re way past eating whatever rubbish your body craves.

Yep, waaaaay past that.

(Hides mala chips in my drawer below my desk.)

If you’re serious about your fitness game — or getting serious — and already have a balanced diet that consists of whole food sources.

Then maybe you’re considering supplements like whey protein powder because they’re an easier and less time-consuming way to get your daily recommended dose of protein.

But there are soooooooo many protein powders out there.

And even more online shops selling the health supplement.

So… where can you find the cheapest one?

As always, I gotchu fam.

FYI: I’m aware that Myprotein has a 5kg bag for their Impact Whey Protein, but I’m basing the price comparison on the 2.5kg bag as it’s the option which all seven sites carry

If you’re only planning to buy one 2.5kg bag of Myprotein Impact Whey Protein, the cheapest option would be Nutrition Pro SG ($0.58 per serving).

BUT if you’re planning to buy one year’s worth of Myprotein Impact Whey.

And take advantage of an ongoing Myprotein promo code plus use one very simple online shopping hack…

The cheapest option would be Myprotein ($0.53 per serving).

Do I Really Need a Protein Shake?

Well… not exactly.

Protein shakes are supplements and they should never replace whole foods.

So if you’re planning to eat better in order to fuel your body for your workouts.

Consider consuming meals that have a healthy balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

This means that your weekly grocery shopping list should consist of whole foods like chicken breasts, eggs, milk, leafy greens and plenty of other fruits and vegetables.

Instead of instant meals, processed food, and stuff with ingredient lists longer than your resume.

Psst… you might wanna consider using the correct grocery credit card to enjoy some savings off your weekly grocery shopping.

I mean, $5 saved is another $5 which can go towards your early retirement right?

Which Protein Powder Is the Cheapest in Singapore?

There’re tonnes of protein powders available out there.

And I’m pretty sure that everyone has a favourite or at least have heard of a brand.

For the sake of this comparison, I’m going to stick with what is arguably the most popular whey protein supplement brand amongst Singaporeans: Myprotein.

It’s a reputable brand that is easy on the pocket and can usually be gotten at a discount.

Plus, I looked at online bodybuilding forums and fitness communities.

And this was the brand that most fitness buffs were recommending for most protein for your buck (read: affordable).

Every serving of Myprotein Impact Whey Protein gives you 21g of protein, 4.5g BCAAs, and 3.6g of glutamine.

More importantly, each 2.5kg bag gives you 100 servings.

Assuming you take one serving every day, one 2.5kg bag should last you a little over 3 months.

To be clear, I don’t plan on getting into debates like:

  • Whey protein isolate vs concentrate
  • What is the best Myprotein flavour?
  • Should you have a protein shake before or after your workout?
  • Does drinking a protein shake with a champagne glass while you answer Seedly community questions grow your biceps by 5 inches? (I highly recommend giving this a try…)

Protein Powder Price Comparison

Let’s assume that you’re going to buy one 2.5kg bag of Myprotein Impact Whey Protein.

I looked around the internet and managed to find 7 different online stores which offered the health supplement:

Whey Protein Powder ComparisonPrice of Impact Whey Protein (2.5kg)Delivery FeePrice Per Serving
Nutrition Pro SG$58.40$0
(Free for $50 and above)
$0.58
Ultimate Sup$55.50$3.50
(Free for $90 and above)
$0.59
The Nutri X$59.90$0

$1.05
Woah Group$104.99$6 flat$1.11
Myprotein$118.99$0
(Free for $100 and above)
$1.19

Note: this price comparison does not take into account ongoing promos or discounts

Based on my comparison, the cheapest option would be to buy it from Nutrition Pro SG ($0.58 per serving).

Is That REALLY The Cheapest Tho?

Let’s say you only want to buy your protein directly from Myprotein.

Because you only trust products which you get directly from the source.

Well… the great thing about shopping on the Myprotein website is that there’s usually some kind of Myprotein promo code available.

Currently, you can get 52% off with code “11AFTER”.

And that brings your purchase from Myprotein to $0.72 per serving.

Pro-tip: if you’re a smart shopper and clicked through ShopBack, where you can get up to 7% cashback off your Myprotein purchase.

You’ll bring that all the way down from $1.19 to $0.67 per serving.

Which is the fourth cheapest option based on my price comparison table for one 2.5kg bag of Myprotein Impact Whey.

How Much Will I Save On Protein Supplements In A Year?

Assuming you take one serving every day for a year: 365 ÷ 100 servings = four 2.5kg bags of Myprotein Impact Whey Protein

If you bought from Nutrition Pro SG

And they don’t have any promos right now less free delivery if you meet the minimum spending:

($58.40 × 4) = $233.60 (with free delivery)

If you bought from Myprotein

And are a new Myprotein customer who clicked through ShopBack AND applied the 52% off Myprotein promo code:

($57.11 × 4) × 0.93 = $212.45 (with free delivery)

.

.

.

Surprise, surprise.

You save about $21.15 if you used my comparison table and hacks to save even more off your Myprotein purchase.

You’re welcome, bruv.

By the whey (geddit?), that’s money which you could put into a high-interest savings account OR maybe even an insurance savings plan.


Which could be the bedrock of your future retirement.
