Where to buy cheapest quinoa and chia seeds?

I live in the South East (Atlanta) region and I was just wondering, if you buy things like quinoa and chia (which are super expensive ) is there a particular place (store, online?) that is the cheapest? I would like to splurge on those items but they are so expensive!!!!!! Thank you for your help!

I can't say who has the best price....but definitely look at Vitacost when you are comparing online.

Also do you have Azure Standard in your area? They are another resource I use for those types of things and they often have the best price for me.

I compare Costco's store price with Amazon and Vitacost online. Any one of these could be cheapest at a given time. Just depends. Most online places are also giving discounts now for regularly scheduled orders, so if you use these items regularly, it might be worth ordering that way.

That is a good point....the prices on both vitacost and amazon fluctuate so it is worth checking each time you purchase and knowing what their 'best price' is, so you can watch for it and purchase while it is low.

Trader Joe's is another place to check if you have one around.

Have you tried Costco? I got 1kg of Organic Quinoa from there for $10 (I think it was that much. It was much cheaper than what you pay in the other stores though!). I live in Australia so the brands/prices may vary though!
