That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
Short version: The cheapest approach is to combine E-bates with an order over $325 plus the monthly $50 off coupon..
CodyJo's analysis of the costs is spot-on:.
There's a problem with the current $275 50% off shipping logic you won't see this applied until your order is over $325. You can call in to get them to credit you... or just order over $325 worth if you want. (This somewhat dilutes the value of your $50 coupon, though.).

I agree with Sir Bonkers. I much prefer the VIP for two months (you can capitalize on your two free weeks of food and free shipping that way) and then after those two months are over, switch to coupons and ebates. Ebates refunds you 5% of what you spend on Medifast and if you order other things online, you most probably will also find them using ebates so you can save quite a bit of money that way...
With the Take Shape for Life program you can join the BeSlim Club. The free shipping kicks in with a.
Order. The free week food kicks in with a $250 order. You get a free week's worth of food on your first 2 orders if the order is at least $250. The 5% discount applies for your first 6 month's orders and then the discount jumps to 10% for all subsequent orders. You also accrue points that you can redeem for items such as jewelry, books, electronics, etc. The other advantage of going through Take Shape for Life is that you gt a free health coach to help you on your journey.
Others do not feel the need of coaching. It is a very individual and personal decision..
I know CodyJo did a lot of research into the least expensive way to order so, the above advice to check out her stats is good advice too..
Welcome to the program. I wish you well!..
Yes, Cellis is correct! Welcome and get ready for the great success you will find!..
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great responses!! I'll be ordering this evening and hopefully it won't take too long for my order to get to me!!.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!.
Not sure why but just that sentence made me laugh...
It's very difficult to create a sentence containing "Sir Bonkers" without chuckling. One of the reasons I like the name...
