Nutrisystem Shipping Cost:

Plans: Nutrisystem charges a flat $9.99 per auto-delivery shipment which is usually every 4 weeks and may include frozen food.

If you are not enrolled in a monthly plan and are simply buying food, the shipping cost depends on your order total. (source) Here are the shipping rates:

  • $0 – $19.99: $7.99
  • $20.00 – $74.99: $11.99
  • $75 – $149.99: $16.99
  • $150 and up: $19.99

Tip: I hope that you live in the contiguous 48 states because shipping rates for orders to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Canada, APO & PO Boxes, and international addresses are prohibitively expensive costing $49.99 per shipment. Now that’s some salty food!

How to Avoid Shipping Fees:

You can usually avoid the $9.99 Nutrisystem auto-delivery shipping fee on your first order when you use a coupon.

If you are buying food a la carte consider joining Nutrisystem Advantage for free delivery on $99+ orders. There is currently a free trial so you can try it at no cost for the first 30 days. At only about $5 per month, the membership pays for itself quickly!

Shipping Times:

After you place an order at it will usually take up to a total of 5 business days for processing and delivery to your address assuming that you live in the Contiguous 48 states.

Frozen foods are packaged with dry ice and sent seperately from non-frozen foods. Nutrisystem recommends that you unpack and put frozen foods in the freezer ASAP as they will thaw in a matter of hours after delivery.

Orders to Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico take 4-10 business days and are crazy expensive.

Tip: Wondering where your order is? You can find your tracking inforation on the Order History page in your Nutrisystem account. Frozen food orders will have a seperate tracking #

Final Thoughts About Nutrisystem Shipping

As you can see Nutrisystem shipping is not cheap. That’s because most of the time they are shipping perishable food and may even need to package frozen food to not spoil during delivery.

The good news is that there are a couple of ways to avoid paying delivery fees, especially if you are a new customer.
