I am not sure about the auto ship if you can pick and choose. Call Medifast Support and ask. Also if you do a google search for Medifast coupon codes you will find some really good ones that will save you some money too. We are not allowed to post coupon codes on the boards or in private messages but they are out there if you search for them. Good thinking on ordering more before you run out. I ran low before my second shipment arrived. Also ended my first month with only the foods I didn't like because I didn't organize myself at first...
So how do I go about ordering? Is there an autoship option once you pick your foods and get ready to check out? I am getting to the point where I have a lot of the foods I am not too crazy about and need some more portable foods for work so thought about ordering the cold drinks and more soup..easy to take with me. I also really want that book....
Thanks so much for quick responses...
I customize my orders and then usually find a coupon for $55 off of a $255 purchase. I end up spending $200 for around 18 boxes of food, and the shipping is free...
Also another quick question...does the deal with the free weeks and book etc. expire or can I sign up for autoship anytime? Still have about 3 weeks of food so was gonna order next week..but dont' wanna miss out..
There is a site redtagdeals.com where they tell you about all the coupons available for MF. Also when you order you place redtag in the coupon box you save $55.00 and if the order is over $200 you get free shipping. I just placed an order recently and it there was a box for you to sign up for autoship. If you sign up for autoship I'm not sure about the $55 savings which is important for me too. Kept my order for a month to a little over $200 and I always custom order because what good would it be to get foods you hate and I don't like a lot. there are a lot of options you can use to save money.
If you want more info on that I can give you my health advisor's name. I'm not a health advisor...

I just tried different coupons with the autoship and it was a no go. let me know if anyone finds out differently..
I like ordering what I want when I want....I don't like all the food that comes with the 4 and 2 week packages (I can't stomach the oatmeals! Blech! or the cappiccino or latte I find myself ordering mostly puddings, shakes, and ready to drink shakes. They ship from Owings Mill, MD so I get mine in about 2 days!..
If that's the case it doesn't pay to use autoship. I'd keep it regular and use the $55 off as long as I can...
I'm glad you were able to save. It's a great deal. Glad I could help...
Think i'll use autoship the first couple of months cuz you get a week of free food for month 1 and 2 plus the book. you can cancel autoship anytime...so may go back to regular ordering once I get month 2...plus i'll be travelling a lot so wanna have more control when I get my order...
If you sign up with a health advisor, you can join the BE Slim Club and save on each order you place. They will send your regular order unless you change it, which is really easy to do. Your discount progresses until it reaches 12%.
I love saving money!!!!.
I order whatever I want, looking for coupons and always ordering more than $200 to get free shipping. Auto-ship looks like it could be a good option though..
Try out the recipe section to make those foods you don't like into something tolerable, and maybe even enjoyable. Even if you don't like a recipe that much, it probably isn't any worse than the food you didn't like originally. I've used up vanilla shakes and non-MF-very-low-calorie diet oatmeal by making them into muffins, and I like Gatita's tortillas as a way to use up Cream of Tomato and Broccoli soups. Good luck!..
I have always custom ordered. You still get whatever discount is offered for "4 weeks" if your order is 20 boxes or more. I also scour women's magazines (woman's day, LHJ, People) and online for discount codes and have always found one for $55 off or free weeks since the beginning. Between the $ off and free weeks and free shipping I am able to keep my orders between $200-$250/month custom ordering...
