Need help finding the best deal please...

I lurk here daily and you ladies are so great at finding great deals. We are a large, debt free but thrifty family. My youngest was just diagnosed with MSPI (milk, soy protein intolerance). He has to switch to Similac Alimentum powdered formula. ( I pumped for him but my supply never came in due to lots of circumstance of his preemie birth).

I am not opposed to ordering a case or two at a time if the price is right. How can I find the best deals online for this? I don't honestly have time to sit and look at it all individually. Is there somewhere that compares costs and promotions in one place?

Thanks so much!

Have you tried bing.com, then clicked on the shopping tab after the search results appear? Then it tabulates the shopping results. This is usually where I start when I'm looking for something, though it's not always 100% accurate or helpful.

Have you check to see if you insurance will help pay for it. My son has a milk allergy and is on Neocate and some insurances will help pay for it cause it is a medical food. Mine did not but its defiantly something to check.

Our insurance won't pay unless it is tube fed.

Have you tried eBay? I bought some unopened cans of formula when I needed to.

I am very leery of buying from eBay. I guess I prefer a real store. I guess I am afraid of getting a wacko injecting something into it.....probably totally irrational but I don't want to take the chance.

Amazon would probably be a good place to check
