Cheap Energy Drink Locator

cheap-energy-drinksMost major brand energy drinks cost between 3-4 dollars, so those that drink them daily can develop a pretty expensive habit.

If you having trouble reducing your caffeine intake (you might want to check if you have a caffeine addiction), then this page will hopefully save you some money.

Make Your Own Energy Drinks

  1. 4C Energy Rush– Each packet makes one 80mg of caffeine energy drink for about 38 cents each.
  1. ZipFizz– Each tube makes 1 energy drink. Works out to be about $1 per serving.

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.
  • Amazon.com– I great place to find energy drinks or shots in bulk that are shipped directly to your door.
  • BodyBuilding.com – 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.

    people on other posts have been telling people to try deton8 at kroger, they say it’s the same and just as cheap.

  • At Kmart stores, there’s an energy drink called free fall & it’s only 99 cents a can! Not sure about the caffeine content, but it tastes EXACTLY like Red Bull.

  • Ryan

  • John

    My favorite form of energy is Yerba Maté. It is an acquired taste for sure but it is a different form of caffeine. Yerba Mate has many times more antioxidants than Green Tea, yet contains a healthier energizer. Though often called “caffeine,” there are many who believe that Yerba Mate contains a xanthine alkaloid similar to caffeine yet much healthier in its effects. Though all the research has not yet been concluded to classify this amazing energizer, the anecdotal evidence is overwhelmingYerba Mate makes you feel good because it picks up your energy level without taxing your body. The unique xanthine alkaloid effect working together with the high nutritional content, gives you an energy you feel like you can use, rather than one you feel like your body is trying to “deal with.”
    The healthy energizing effects of Yerba Mate help you get going with increased mental clarity, energy and alertness. Yerba Mate sustains you throughout the day, helping to combat fatigue and sleepiness.

    Ever since Sam Walton died, those kids have been letting the mgmt run walmart into the ground. Some day it will be a joke, just like k-mart. Anyways, I get my caffiene from 2 liter bottles of Vault currently and I suppliment it with caffeinated mints, but I plan on switching to a powder mix, maybe I can find poweredge somewhere here in tampa.
