In case you haven't heard of it, Vegan Cuts offers discounts on vegan products (largely from vegan companies). I've ordered several great vegan items at a significant discount - from handmade caramels to Wayfare bacony bits to glass straws. From the Vegan Cuts website:
Vegan Cuts is run by a vegan couple, John and Jill, who really want to see more people shopping with vegan ethics. A commitment to buying vegan food is a great start, but you can also make a positive difference by choosing vegan options when purchasing clothing, shoes, accessories, body care products and everyday household items. This is why Vegan Cuts features a range of vegan products and encourages members to shop vegan by promoting opportunities to save money while eschewing animal cruelty.Certainly I try to make everyday purchases that are in keeping with my vegan lifestyle, but I would prefer to make these purchases from companies and stores that are in the same vein. One of my favorite things about Vegan Cuts is learning about new products, brands, and companies that support my values, so that I can support them!
More recently, I found out about Spencer's Market (through a facebook ad, oddly enough .. don't tell facebook that those things sometimes work!). It's an interesting site with deals on food items, where you can specify your dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free) and interests (baked goods, chocolate and candy, jams, snacks, etc.). When I go to the site, I only see offers that fit in with my preferences (i.e. vegan). From their website:
Spencer's Market is a personalized way for conscientious consumers to discover new foods from the highest quality, small-batch producers at easy-to-try prices. Offers are presented in a limited-time, limited-quantity format.Some of the offers on this site are basically just good sale prices, but I've found a few great deals. I recently got a ton of Primal Strips for about $1.12/strip. Now, that's still a lot of money for a snack, but I seriously love these things and never buy them because they're closer to $2 a piece at the store. Now I've got a nice little store of them to tide me over for a while. And there was apparently a deal to get 24 mini-Larabars for only $7! Sadly, this was before I really spent any time on the site, so I missed out on it.

In the interest of full disclosure, if you sign up for Spencer's Market through my invitation link, I can get a credit on their site. I'd certainly appreciate the link-through to help me out, but even if you don't want to do that, you should at least check the site out!
