You may have poked around the web a bit, wondering: Does LMNT offer discounts?
No, we don't offer discounts—but keep your bubble un-burst for a moment! If you’re wondering how to Stay Salty on a budget, you’ve come to the right place. I’m about to give you a guided tour of the ways you can save money on any flavor of LMNT. We also believe that everyone should have access to healthy hydration. So if LMNT isn’t an option for you, keep reading. I’ll share how to make do-it-yourself electrolyte drinks later on in the article.
Robb, don’t make me scroll through the whole blog! Just spill it: what’s the most affordable way to get my salt?
I hear you! This probably breaks some rules of suspenseful writing, but I’m going to share the punchline right here at the beginning. If you want to skip the rest of the article and take advantage of the savings, go ahead! I won’t be offended. In fact, I’ll wrap your LMNT in fine silks and deliver it to your door personally. (Disclaimer from the LMNT Team: Robb will NOT wrap your LMNT in fine silks or deliver it personally. Thankfully, Robb is not involved in the fulfillment process.)
Okay, so maybe I can’t do that. But I can tell you that if you want the absolute best price on LMNT, subscribe to the Value Bundle. When you subscribe to the Value Bundle, you get 4 boxes for the price of 3, plus an extra 13% savings for subscribing. Altogether, you’re saving over 40% per LMNT stick. And the Value Bundle isn’t just better for your wallet, it’s also better for the environment with fewer shipments and fewer carbon emissions.
I’ll talk more about the Value Bundle, ways to sample LMNT, and how to mix DIY electrolyte homebrews soon. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win a Value Bundle if you relish solving math problems. First, though, why do people enjoy LMNT?
Why People Love LMNT
If you have six months of free time, just read the 19,000+ reviews on drinkLMNT.com. Your retina may disintegrate, but you’ll be the world’s leading expert on why our customers love staying salty.
Let me save you the time and eye strain by summarizing LMNT’s benefits in a single sentence: People love LMNT because it’s delicious, energizing, convenient, and healthful. Let’s double click on each of these reasons.
First, LMNT tastes ridiculously good. It’s hard to believe that something so sweet, salty, and tangy could be healthful, but it really is. We always support our claims with well-conducted research and published evidence: check out the full story on our electrolyte ratios, stevia, citric acid, and malic acid.
LMNT also gives you energy. Many folks (especially low-carb and active folks) find that bumping up their sodium intake significantly increases energy levels. I felt this effect several years back, which ultimately led my coaches and I to create LMNT. The sodium, potassium, and magnesium (minerals that most folks are deficient in) keep your body humming along.
And just as important as what we put in LMNT is what we left out. With zero sugar, artificial flavors, or junk, there’s nothing in LMNT to derail your healthful lifestyle. Just the essential ingredients in convenient, grab-and-go packaging.
How To Use LMNT
When you first try LMNT, I recommend mixing 1 stick pack with anywhere from 16 to 32 oz of water to find your taste. (Some like it salty, while others like it very salty.) You’ll get the hang of it pretty quickly.
Enjoy LMNT before, during, or after exercise, or sip your salt during the day for general hydration. The salty truth is that most people don’t consume enough electrolytes. LMNT helps prevent the problems caused by those deficiencies: everything from muscle cramps to brain fog.
Keep your electrolytes handy by storing 3-4 sticks in your backpack, carry-on, purse, or car. That way, you’ll never find yourself licking the salt lamp at your electrolyte-deficient buddy’s house.
Next up: let’s talk flavors, bundles, and pricing.
How to Sample LMNT
There are four primary ways to get LMNT: the Variety Pack, the Fiesta Pack, the Box, and the Value Bundle. We’ll talk about flavors, subscriptions, and pricing as we review these products, starting with the Box.
#1: The Box
The Box is the OG LMNT product. Each box contains 30 stick packs, and you can choose from the following flavors:
- Citrus Salt. This makes a great NorCal margarita!
- Raspberry Salt. This flavor has a cult following, one of my daughters included.
- Orange Salt. A true fan favorite.
- Watermelon Salt. Tangy and refreshing, a summertime favorite.
- Mango Chili. Start the fiesta.
- Lemon Habanero. Spicy! Open at arms-length, with caution and good ventilation.
- Chocolate Salt. Best hot, in your favorite mug or with hot coffee.
- Raw Unflavored. Avoiding stevia or natural flavors? Nothing but electrolytes here.
- Grapefruit Salt. Limited-time only! May be gone by the time you read this!
- Mint Chocolate. Cozy winter hydration. Was a limited-time offer.
The Box price per stick pack (no subscription): $1.50
The Box price per stick pack (subscription): $1.30
If you can’t decide which flavor to try first, I’ve got you covered. The Variety Pack and Fiesta Pack are up next.
#2: The Variety Pack
Most folks start with our Variety Pack. With 4 sticks of Citrus Salt, 4 sticks of Raspberry Salt, and 4 sticks of Orange Salt, it’s the ideal sampler to find your chosen flavor.
Currently, I’m loving Orange Salt. I typically oscillate between Citrus Salt and Orange Salt, but I also love adding Chocolate Salt to my coffee. Once you find your favorites, you can scale up and save with a Box or Value Bundle on subscription.
Variety Pack price per stick (no subscription): $1.67
Variety Pack price per stick (subscription): $1.50
#3: The Fiesta Pack
Usually, folks find a few favorites right off the bat with our Variety Pack. Then, as they branch out, we often hear something like “A spicy electrolyte drink?! A chocolate electrolyte drink!?” Yes and yes! Introducing: The Fiesta Pack.
The Fiesta Pack contains 4 sticks of Chocolate Salt, 4 sticks of Mango Chili, and 4 sticks of Lemon Habanero. Intrepid salt fans, step right up and enjoy.
Fiesta Pack price per stick (no subscription): $1.67
Fiesta Pack price per stick (subscription): $1.50
#4: The Value Bundle
The Value Bundle is the saltiest, most affordable way to get your LMNT, period. When you buy 3 boxes, you get 1 box free.
The Value Bundle isn’t just better for your wallet. With fewer shipments, it also has a smaller carbon footprint.
If you’re searching for the best way to stay salty, this is it. Customize your Value Bundle on subscription to unlock the best possible price per stick.
Value Bundle price per stick (no subscription): $1.13
Value Bundle price per stick (subscription): $0.98
The Value of a Subscription
When you subscribe to any LMNT product, you save 10-13%. Those savings add up quickly.
But some folks (myself included) get a bit antsy around subscriptions. I don’t like locking myself into recurring monthly payments.
That’s why we made LMNT subscriptions super easy to customize. At any time you can log in to your account to:
- Adjust your renewal frequency
- Swap flavors
- Skip orders
- Pause or cancel your subscription
In other words, there’s zero commitment. You can order once, save money, pause your subscription, and resume when you’re ready. You’re not locked into anything and it takes about 60 seconds to modify your subscription as you please.
DIY Electrolyte Drinks
Before we get into the Value Bundle Giveaway contest, I’d be remiss not to mention that LMNT isn’t the only way to Stay Salty.
Luis, Tyler, and I made our own electrolyte concoctions at home for years before LMNT existed. The homemade options are a bit messier and take some time to prepare, but they will certainly save you money.
The basic premise is to mix the following ingredients into 16-32 oz of water:
- ½ teaspoon salt (provides ~1 g sodium)
- 500 mg potassium citrate powder (provides ~200 mg potassium)
- ¼ teaspoon of magnesium malate (provides ~60 mg magnesium)
Then, to make the homebrews a bit more palatable, I recommend adding a dash of stevia, to taste. You can also add cucumber, raspberries, watermelon, or a couple tablespoons of lemon or lime juice, whichever suits your preferences!

How Many Ways Can You Try LMNT? (Value Bundle Giveaway)
Here’s a math problem for you, astute reader. Based on all the permutations of flavor, product, and subscription status, how many possible ways can you try LMNT?
Here are the parameters:
- 4 products. The Box, Variety Pack, Fiesta Pack, and Value Bundle.
- 10 flavors. I’m including Grapefruit Salt and Mint Chocolate, which are limited-time flavors, even though they may not be available for purchase right now.
- 2 subscription options. Subscribed or not.
Hint: The tricky part is calculating the MANY possible combinations in the Value Bundle. For example, you can have 3 boxes of Chocolate Salt and 1 box of Orange Salt. Or 2 boxes of Chocolate Salt and 2 boxes of Orange Salt, and so on. The order of the flavors does not matter, only the number does.
As a salty reward: the first 10 people to solve this problem correctly will receive a FREE Value Bundle. Just email email@example.com with your answer, 4 preferred boxes of LMNT, mailing address, and be sure to use the subject line “Value Bundle Giveaway.” Good luck!
