    I drink a fair bit of monster for work because I have a high stress job. This is the best deal I've ever seen on monsters, thought I would post it here as well. I'd imagine with the amount of gamers here someone can take advantage of this. I'm not even sure if this is the correct place to post this or not so mods are welcome to move it.

    Ralph's grocery store has this deal every other week and Costco sells a case of 24 for =$24 every day.

    What's next, Mountain Dew and Doritos deals?

    I enjoy energy drinks every once in a while, but even at $1 a can they are still pricey.

    Red Bull still charges just under $3 here for their small can its always the most popular ones.

    Sam's and Costco have them for roughly $1.50/can depending on the sale. But yeah it adds up.

    Damn near everything in on sale every week at Rite Aid if you have the Rite Rewards card (which I believe they have renamed the Plentii card now).

    Redbull tastes like piss.

    As for the monster this is the perpetual "sale" price at pretty much every grocery store around me.

    Around my area it's like

    1x Monster can $2.79
    2x Monster cans $3.00

    Sometimes I end up buying one can because I am walking/hiking and I don't want to carry another can with me :(

    I buy shit tons of Monster Rehab.

    Energy Drinks give you little in return and take everything you got.

    This thread is so polarizing already, but I'll throw in my silly opinions.

    Regular Red Bull > Regular Monster, but Calorie-Free Monster >>>>> Calorie-Free Red Bull. It's also a hell of a lot less expensive. I usually do Amazon's 4pk for $6 because they are $2.50 each locally.

    Coffee doesn't do anything for me, so I have 2-3 Monster Absolutely Zero per week. I know they're bad for you, but everything is bad for you these days.

    I've always said that Red Bull smells like a really gross unclean bar surface. All sticky and gross.

    The Monster Rehab is where it's at. Better selection, minimal calories (I think, like, 30?), uncarbonated, and super tasty.

    Up Your Gas ephedra tablets were the greatest energy booster ever until the fucksticks in the federal govt. decided ephedra had to banned.

    I prefer RedBull, every other energy drink tastes like shit. They are all bad for you! Coffee or GunPowder green tea?

    why are they bad for you again?

    Because ur mommy said so?

    Kinda reminds me of how people thought margarine was better for you than butter.

    Cereal, nutri-grain bars, and not brushing your teeth are more risky than low cal energy drinks in my opinion.

    That article doesn't point why they are "bad" it just points out people with little self control over abuse products and then hurt themselves from it. Seriously that guy drank FOUR TO FIVE a day!!! all of them have warnings on them!

    Someone got quoted saying that Taurine and DMMA was the culprit, which has never been proven. All they have to go on is that people with these symptoms, drink (aka abuse the crap out of) energy drinks and they happen to also include Taurine. Taurine is in many, many different products that we consume already and is actually an important amino acid in our diet.

    So yea, energy drinks aren't "so bad" the people who abuse them are. Its like a fat person saying Carbs are dangerous and don't eat anything with carbs.

    ^^ Man, I wish caffeine had even 1/4 that effect on me. I could down a 12-pack of Mountain Dew or a quadruple dose of caffeine pills and take a peaceful 30-minute nap. Always been "immune" to any kind of caffeine rush. Sux ass..

    I once drank a Four Loko before a job interview and began to feel god-like, as if I could rule every living thing.

    That interview didn't work out.

    Energy drinks are disgusting.

    If you need some energy eat right and get enough sleep.

    2 for $3? Warm at best. If it were 99 cents a can, then that would be a hot deal.
    Pass.
    That deal happens all the time at my local gas stations. One week, one station does it, next week another station does it. I've got 4 stations within a mile of me (2 Quiktrips, 1 BP, 1 Shell). The local distributors love these guys and keep cutting them deals and putting the ads on the store windows.

    One of the stations near me still sells Cocaine Energy Drink. It's still on shelves despite its short ban from the FDA. 280mg of caffeine per 8 ounce can. Oooh man does that shit pack a punch...and a crash to match.
