Sunbasket Cost & Pricing | Updated for 2023

Confused by all the different pricing?

If you’re looking to order Sunbasket, then you’re probably trying to figure out what it actually costs. Very often, meal kit companies don’t divulge all the various prices until you first make an account with them, but we’re here to help you learn about the costs beforehand!

Meals Kits vs Fresh & Ready Cost

When you’re first deciding on Sunbasket, you’ll have to decide on whether you want to order the typical meal kit meals, or you want the “Fresh n’ Ready” meals. The difference between the two is that with meal kits, you receive perfectly portioned ingredients with a recipe card, so you have to cook the meal from scratch. There is also a “Speedy” option with Meal Kits, which is when they send you your preportioned ingredients, already chopped and cut. So you don’t have to do any prepping yourself, you just follow the recipe card to complete the meal. In most cases, there is no price difference between the normal Meal Kit meal and the “Speedy” Meal kit meal.

For the Fresh n’ Ready meals, you simply pop the meal into the oven for 5-10 minutes, and you’re food to good to go.

At the moment, the more expensive option between the two is the Meal Kit selection. The price for Meal Kits start at $13.99 per serving, while the price for Fresh n’ Ready start at $11.99. So you’re looking at a $2 difference in cost between the two when electing to go with the smallest order size.

Once you’ve decided on a Meal Kit or a Fresh n’ Ready, what really affects the price you pay is the number of meals you are ordering.

Pricing for Sunbasket Meal Kits

There are three tiers in terms of how many meals you are ordering. Either you order 2 meals, 3 meals, or 4+ meals. Here is an important thing to keep in mind, each meal consists of 2 servings. So if you have the 2 meal plan, then you are going to receive 4 servings worth of food. Either way, let’s see how the prices breakdown based on how much you order:

  • 2 meals (4 servings) = $13.99 per serving | $27.98 per meal | $55.96 for the full order
  • 3 meals (6 servings) = $11.99 per serving | $23.98 per meal | $71.94 for the full order
  • 4 meals (8 servings) = $10.99 per serving | $21.98 per meal | $87.92 for the full order

And before we forget, make sure to add $7.99 per shipment, which then turns all those totals to $63.95, $79.93, and $95.91 respectively.

Similar to the Meal Kit option, you also have the same three tiers. In addition, each meal also consists of 2 servings.

  • 2 meals (4 servings) = $11.99 per serving | $23.98 per meal | $47.96 for the full order
  • 3 meals (6 servings) = $9.99 per serving | $19.98 per meal | $59.94 for the full order
  • 4 meals (8 servings) = $8.99 per serving | $17.98 per meal | $71.92 for the full order

Just like last time, once we add the $7.99 shipping fee, the totals end up as $55.95, $67.93, and $79.91.

If these prices seem a little too much as a new customer, then you’re in luck, you can always grab a Sunbasket Promo Code from us for a $114 total value! With that offer, you’ll be able to receive your first meals while only paying $5 – $7 per serving depending on whether you choose the Meal Kit meals or the Fresh & Ready meals. On top of that discount, you will also receive free snacks with each of your first four deliveries, which are typically sold for between $5-8 each.

Pricing for Sunbasket Snacks

Towards the middle of 2020, Sunbasket started to introduce “Snacks” to their offering, and these are seen as “add-ons”. So how much do these snacks go for?

On the low end, you can grab a Miso Soup for about $3.99 which is meant for 1 serving, or a Toasted coconut Oatmeal cup for $3.75. If you’re willing to shell out more money, then maybe a 2x Spinach & Feta Egg Bits for $4.99 sound tasty? In the mood for a salad, well the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad goes for $6.99. How about some sweets? You can pick up some vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies for $6.99 as well.

The really nice with Sunbasket is that they have countless snacks that you can add to your main order. If you’re really interested in seeing a more extensive list, then you should check out our Sunbasket Menu page.
