Places to Buy Cheap Energy Drinks

cheap-places-for-energy-drinksBesides individual energy drink that are on the cheap, there are also both online and traditional retailers where cheap energy drinks can be found.

Many of these stores will often have either closeouts of top name brands or frequent 2-for-one specials.

  • Big Lots– This closeout store often has name brand energy drinks for cheap. They could be discontinued flavors or stock close to the expiration date.
  • Dollar Stores– There are a wide variety of “dollar” type stores such as Dollar General and Family Dollar. They often have closeout deals on name brand energy drinks or real obscure brands as well.
  •– I great place to find energy drinks or shots in bulk that are shipped directly to your door.
  • – A great bulk source for some of the “sport” marketed energy drinks like Speed Stack and Xenergy featured above.
  • 7 Eleven– This and other national convenience store chains often have “2 for” deals from Rockstar, Monster, or other brands. It pays to check regularly.
  • Other Closeout Stores– There are other less famous closeout store chains around the country like Ollies, National Wholesale Liquidators, and closeout grocery stores.

It pays to shop around especially if your energy drink habit is pushing the $30 a week mark. Why not try one of the cheaper alternatives featured above and then occasionally have a Monster, Red Bull, or Rockstar as a treat every so often.

    I was in the Kafe Lounge in Elizabeth, NJ this Sunday 09/06 and Fireball Energy Drink had promotional night. It was better then Redbull. The best Energy drink I ever had. It’s black can with orange “fireball”. If you see it, try it. I love it. I was talking to the guy and he said his goal it to put it in the stores for around $ 1.50 retail. I can’t wait. Believe me & grab it. This stuff is good. I think their website name is

    I found RockStars on sale in south texas for $1.50 a can at Target. Could be nation wide.

  • Jesi

    i drank 4 ricksars yesterday… =]

  • Bob

    At stores like wal-mart, they have Crystal Light Energy Drinks(and many other types) in powder form. You just pour it into a water bottle and it’s cheap caffeine. It has as much caffeine as a monster or rockstar, but is appx. $0.17 per packet. Great tasting and great for caffeinaholics on a tight budget.

  • Flower

    Seeking information on which are the top five best energy drinks in today. Thanks

  • combstwin

    I found Stacker 2 – 8.4 oz cans of
    Chronic Cola, Pounding Punch, Enraged Raspberry and Sinful Citrus……60¢ a can @ BigLots!
    Can’t beat that!

  • matt

    in kankakee Il rockstars 99 cents a can

  • Tim

    I think we can all agree that no one beats Big Lots for energy drink deals. $0.60 or $0.70 per drink, and an ever-varying selection equals energy goodness.

  • Sage

    Can’t find an energy drink I used to get for dirt cheap at Big Lots. It’s called Von Dutch energy. It was selling 24pk for $6.00. e-mail me if you have any info about it.

  • sean

    Fireball energy drink is the latest craze in the industry. Its half the price of Red Bull and tastes twice as good. I can get cases at wholesale if anybody is interested. Email me

  • Bob

    I have some Bally Fitness Blast energy drink that expired in Sept. 2008. Is it safe to drink?

  • ted

    Expired energy drinks are safe to drink, it’s just the quality might not be as, flavor…..

  • Bob

    has anybody gotten adrenal fatigue from too much caffeine? If so, how did you recover(besides stopping or cutting back on caffeine)?

  • Wired

    The cheapest is store brand caffeine tabs. Sometimes you can get 16 to 24 for between 99cents and $1.99. 200 mg each

  • Bob

    I’m looking for energy source which is gentlest on stomach lining. Some concerns:

    Can Vivarin give you ulcers? Because it’s a concentrated pill it could land in one spot of stomach and irritate it. Maybe it should be crushed into water first to spread it out?

    Also, I have heard that coffee is quite acidic, so I’m looking to get some of that Kava coffee. But damn, they don’t sell it in stores anymore. I need a place to order it without expensive shipping.

  • jinx

    Largest Energy Drink Selection is in my state! oh yeah, next time we are around there we’re going in!!!

  • Vincent

    Tim, you are SO right. Big Lots is the way to go. It’s always hit or miss so it adds to the “hunt.” Those dedicated to seeking out favorites should document carefully because it all looks alike and you’ll forget which flavors you like. The Rockstar “best of 2009” variety in the big plastic bottles (“Punched” I think) is available for $12 for a 12-pack. Yeah.

  • TheGr8one

    Any idea where I can find Wired X-505 or Cocaine Energy drinks?


  • lonnie
