Lucky Vitamin began three generations ago with a family interested in others health. Starting with a pharmacy in 1956, the Wolf family became frustrated with western medicine and wanted to do more with natural wellness and alternative medicine. They opened a health and nutrition store in 1996, offering a wider variety of services for health. The website, luckyvitamin.com, was opened in 2005 to present a larger public with their products that help improve health and overall well-being.

The Good

  • Thorough Information
  • 30 Day Return Policy
  • Free Shipping on Orders Over $49

Thorough Information

The Lucky Vitamin site is very thorough in its information. From the site you can access any of their 24 categories of products, their most popular including: Nutritional Supplements, Personal Care & Beauty, Vitamins & minerals, Food & Snacks, and Sports Nutrition. When you select a product, the site provides a detailed description under its overview tab. It also allows you to look at suggested uses, warnings, ingredients, reviews and discussions. It also links you to articles related to that product. This allows consumers who want information about the product in general to get a wide view of this product, the specific brand and the general uses. Each product includes the nutrition label, it shows a picture of the nutrition label so it can be viewed just as it would be on the actual product. This leaves little to the imagination about what the customer is getting when they purchase the product. The Lucky Vitamin site is also very thorough on their return policy information.

90-Day Return Policy

They accept opened or unopened items 90 days after the purchase. They include specific, step-by-step instructions on how to return items. They also include what to do in special cases and which brands do not apply to this policy.

Free Shipping on Orders Over $49

When shopping on Lucky Vitamin you receive free shipping when you spend more than $49. The site keeps track of this, letting you know how much more is needed to obtain the free shipping. They also offer free shipping on certain promotional items. Lucky Vitamin offers autoship on certain items. The consumer can select autoship while shopping and set up with the site how often they would like that product delivered in the future. The site then takes care of their future deliveries. They remind the customer before each delivery so they have the option to skip or cancel at any time. Lucky Vitamin offers a loyalty program for their customers. Their loyalty program, Lucky Rewards, is free. When consumers sign up for a MyLucky Account, they can then earn one Lucky Reward Point for every dollar spent. Certain promotional items may also be worth more points. Once 500 points are earned, $5 off of their next purchase is credited to the consumer.

The Bad

  • Harder to Navigate
  • Not a Great Rewards Program

Harder to Navigate

Although the site is extremely detailed and thorough on its information, this can make it a little hard to navigate. There are so many options; a user must go through multiple pages before getting to a page with actual products on it. They also have 24 categories of products which while some may find helpful, others may find it is too many and makes browsing difficult. Lucky Vitamin does not offer to price match with their competitors and it offers some products that are a bit higher price than other sites in the industry. Although it does offer free shipping, more than $49 may be more than some would like to spend to receive their free shipping and is more than other sites free shipping rates.

Not a Great Rewards Program

While it is good that they have a rewards program, their program is not the most competitive in the industry. Because you only earn generally one point for every dollar spent, a customer must spend approximately $500 dollars to receive $5 in credit and the consumer must wait 45 days after they've earned the points to use the credit. The rewards program also does not discuss any other options for credits besides the 500 points for $5.

The Bottom Line

Lucky Vitamin does not have the most rewarding, loyalty program. Their site is not the easiest to navigate that we've seen. However, their autoship feature is very helpful for returning customers on products they often purchase. The site provides a lot of helpful, detailed information about a large number of products. If you are looking for a lot of options and good information about those options, Lucky Vitamin will be a useful site.

I have regularly used LuckyVitamin many, many times, but now I may have to change vendors. I was always able to check out as a visitor, now you engage in the cyber-bulling tactic of REQUIRING setting up an account. This is obviously to barrage my email with advertising. Short sighted mistreatment of customers.

I attempted Saturday to make a purchase. Every time I would get to the end no matter how many times I tried, it had wrongfully increased my total amount. Finally I tried to call and it said the phone was closed. I then realized I would have to wait until Monday to call so that I could make my order. I called Monday and sat on the line waiting to speak to someone for 35 min when the automated recording finally told me that wait would be 25 min more. So I gave up very disappointed I had wasted all of that time accomplishing nothing but stress and aggravation.

Their prices are good. Better than other places on what I have bought so far. Large selection of items to choose from. Looking forward to using them more for things I buy. My daughter loves the RX bars. She is not a big fan of protein and I can get her to eat these. 12 g. in one bar. She gets one in her lunch every day. Quick turn around time from order to delivery. Haven't dealt with the company long enough to honestly rate on Customer Service or Trustworthiness thus just 3 Stars.

Site easy to use, good price. But did learn not to use discount voucher till very end as mine seemed to drop out when I went back and forth from cart and going to pay then changed mind and added more...noted for future purchases! Have yet to receive items so cannot review on products or international postage at this stage.

I had ordered in the past from L.V. without issue, but my last very sizable order was handled very poorly with excessive packages that were poorly matched (size of the item to size of the box). I'm still not sure I received what I ordered or was charged correctly as there were so many invoices & separate charges; just really unorganized.

I like the selection of products and the low prices. I had a bad experience with a back-ordered product order that got automatically canceled and I was unable to successfully reinstate it. I just ordered it again (plus some) so all is well, but I would have hoped for an easier experience for reinstating this order. Otherwise, I'm very happy with Lucky!
