You had almost everything I'm looking for…

You had everything I'm looking for except essential oils and oil blends in roll-on bottles. You have three, I see, but they seem a bit 'strange'. I'd like simple blends for insect bites/stings, bruises, headaches, etc. -whatever we rub essential oils on our skin for. Piping Rock has these, but for some reason, my browser or something will no longer work with Piping Rock.

Save money, Don't order from Swanson anymore.

I just went to reorder my vitamins and the prices went up over 25% on many items and they went up on all items. I usually spend over a hundred dollars per order but now I will save alot more by not ordering anything from them. They are taking advantage of people because other companies are. Im not going to support that or them. Its sad how the site pratically begs you to send your friends email to them and you get a discount. Ironically it still doesnt cover the amount prices went up in three months. I would rather go to vitacost or better yet shop locally. Screw swanson.

This is my first time to order and…

This is my first time to order and really looking forward in receiving the products. Some of the products I found here at Swanson Products that I could not find anywhere else. It is well worth to stock up with good products and costs less than anywhere else.

Deceptive Advertising

The website said 25% off the total order site wide. I chose one of the products (two pack of ubiquinol) shown immediately below this banner. The payment process never took the 25% off. I feel this is very deceptive advertising and bad business practice.

Swanson Vitamins Still Gets Top Honors

Swanson Vitamins continues to be my mainstay and go-to for everything health and supplement related. Even if something is recommended on another site, I will usually check with Swanson before purchase elsewhere to see if they have it available. Whenever they do have what you are looking for, Swanson almost always offers the best price and reliable service. They are the best in my book!

SENIOR HEALTH CONCERNS

As a senior citizen my husband and I take supplements to try and keep our aging bodies performing at the best level possible. If there is a possibility that vitamin supplementation helps the body keep a level of stability; why wouldn't we try them?

site worked well except at one point it shut me out & something about I was refused in. later it worked for me so I finished my order. I was going to call you & place my order over the phone because of this but then it worked so I finished online.

Products

The products that we get from Swanson are reliably good. They now become part of iherb in Canada so I was wondering how this is going to workout. I tried to get "Full
Spectrum Boswellia and Curcumin" but they didn't have any, so I had to go the US store . Disappointing.

lMy first order on line

This is the first time I've ordered from Swanson on line. I tried ordering by phone on Sunday and found out the office is closed today. I was a little concerned about ordering this was since I am not too computer savey but everything went very well without asking for help from my partner who knows much more oabout ordering on line than I do.

Long-time customer missed free shipping

I have bought from Swanson two or three times a year for decades. Good products, but could have had free shipping if I had known to order at least $50 worth. I was about $7 short and would have added to the order to get free shipping. When customers check-out, there should be a reminder about the free shipping. If it was there, I missed it.

A $1.99 "Fuel Charge"

A $1.99 "fuel charge" - really?? Consumers are getting "hit" (using a nice word) by everything; gasoline, heating gas, electric, groceries, cars "market adjustment", etc. Now a "fuel charge" - WOW!

Shopping was great....easy to find my Regular Purchases and pretty easy check out. Still, would like to have my previous and old address from Indiana REMOVED. We have lived in FLORIDA now 7 years.... permanent Floridians...

I'm already suspicious of this site.

I would rather deal straight with the company to make my purchase. I do not like being duped into using a third party pay system like ShopRunner! I probably won't buy from Swanson again because of this. Now I have to automatically have a Trustpilot account too? Totally BOGUS.....

Reply from Swanson Vitamins

Hello,

I apologize for the misunderstanding. ShopRunner is a 3rd party subscription offer for free 2 day shipping on qualifying orders, but it is not required at all. Also, ShopRunner does not process order payments at all or have anything to do with the secure payment system on our website. You do not have to use ShopRunner if you do not want to and if you do want to use them, the shipping will apply on a $50 merchandise order. You can read more about it on the link further below. If you want your ShopRunner account deleted, please contact ShopRunner directly to do that.

As for the TrustPilot account, that is also optional. There are no requirements for having a TrustPilot account to place an order with us. We only send a request to share your feedback and experience with our company, but you can just ignore that if you do not want to share. If you want to have that account deleted, please contact TrustPilot directly for help.

Wishing you the best of health!

The discounts keeps changing

The discounts keeps changing, sometimes during the checkout process. I hate shopping on this website. At times I'll purchase on Swanson items on Amazon, because I know the price won't change while I'm shopping.

Reply from Swanson Vitamins

Hello,

I apologize for any confusion or concerns the price changes have caused and I would be happy to explain what is going on. Please know that we do not practice any bait & switch tactics as it is illegal and unethical. There are a few different discounts offers we have that will show the prices on our website with the discount already applied, instead of applying it at checkout. These 3 discounts offer types below will be the only ones that show a discount right away instead of at checkout.

1. 15% Off Swanson Brand Products only.
2. 25% Off Swanson Brand Products & Up To 15% Off Almost Everything Else.
3. Up To 40% Off Sitewide discount offer.

As I mentioned, those discounts will apply immediately and the prices that you see in a red font on our website will be the final discount price with that offer. Near the red font discounted price will be the regular price in black font (with a line through it) and the percentage that is being applied to that regular price will also be shown in black font. If you change the discount offer to be one that applies during checkout, like a 20% off for example, it will make the prices go back to the regular price to have the 20% Off applied.

We do not allow more than 1 discount offer per order, so you would not be able to stack that discount. Please make sure that you check the black banner towards the top of our website to see what offer is currently active for you. If it is one of the 3 discount types I mentioned above, you will see the prices revert to their regular price upon changing the offer type, so please make sure you take note of that offer first. If you have any questions or concerns, please start a live chat on our website or call us at 1-800-824-4491.

Wishing you the best of health!

I enjoy shopping at the Swanson website

I've been shopping at the Swanson website for over two years now, and I'm very happy with my purchases. The prices are very competitive. A couple of times I had issues, but I had very good responses from customer service. For the types of things they sell, I always look here first before any place else.

Always some hangup with Swanson's order

Always some hangup with ordering at Swansons, whether it's a Paypal hangup, a product backorder, etc. I almost always have to discuss with chat or over the phone to figure out what's going on. This time, there was a back order that Paypal won't process payment for (and Swanson's has no definite date for) and Paypal won't process my dog vitamins, lol. Yet I can use the same credit card directly for these products, but won't, because I have identity theft issues to contend with, so using my Paypal account is safer.

I like Swanson and their products

I like Swanson and their products. Really like the sales. Sad that I can't get iron, but that's California "looking out for me". Bah, I don't like being anemic when I can't purchase iron!!!

Good experience

Good experience, except for price changes on items in
shopping cart upon comparing prices in other Swanson
emails. This causes one to undue and reselect chosen
products already within the cart-but at higher prices subsequently-which could certainly go unnoticed.

Amazing Company is Swanson Vitamins

Swanson Vitamins - tries hard to have almost any supplement or nutraceutical available out in market place - as part of their inventory. Plus Swanson return or damaged Items is fantastic - They will replace those lost or damaged products - Some years I done as many 4 dozen drop shipped Health Packs sent to Family friends for special holidays - Letting them know with the Health Pack - Swanson is the place to shop - saves time, gas & other hassles
