Have you tried Sams Club or Cosco. I don't know if they do the sensitive kind but I know they both stock brand name formulas which are much less than many other stores. they also do tehir own brand formulas which I used for both my kids (the cosco for my eldest and sams club for my youngest) with no problems at all, they work out even cheaper. They both have memberships which are approx $40-$45 a year, but they also sell diapers and wipes (brand name and their own brand) for way less, you can save so much there. Give them a call and they'll be able to tell you whether they sell the exact type of formula you want.

I've been working on finding the answer to this question myself! So far, if you want to use name brands, Costco is the way to go. It is $0.82/oz at the Madison Hts Costco for Similac Isomil (the brand I've used most) where it is $1.03/oz @ Meijer, and $1.01/oz @ Babies'R'Us. If you are willing to use the store brands, they are considerably cheaper. Meijer & Target brand are both $0.53/oz. Because of this, I'm going to give the store brands a try when I run out of what I've got now.

Go on ebay. You can buy single cans or cases of formula(especially the more costly ones) there for sometimes 1/2 the price of retail stores. The good news is that they have to post the expiration dates on the cans as well. I helped up my mail carrier this way. His grandson had to use a type of formula that normally cost $24 per can due to rare allergies. I found him some on ebay for $12 per can.

I found that Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us had the best prices on similac formulas. Go to Similac.com and sign up for all kinds of coupons from Similac. Anywhere from $3 to $5 off cans of formula. I do not believe that you can buy the Similac Sensitive at Sam's Club. I used Similac Advanced for my daughter and they carried that one. Along with Member's Mark (store brand). Hope this helps you out.
