Based on the table, Red Bull is surprisingly low on caffeine and calories compared to other energy drinks. Some energy drink’s caffeine content ranges from 100mg to 300mg.

Then again, at 8.4 fl.oz, Red Bull’s are technically half the volume of a usual 16 fl.oz energy drink such as Monster. From a per fl.oz perspective, the two (Red Bull and Monster) actually have a pretty similar sugar and caffeine content.

How Much Caffeine is in Red Bull?

A standard 8.4 fl.oz can of Red Bull has 80mg of caffeine, which is just about equivalent to your standard cup of coffee.

Caffeine is a pretty major component in Red Bull, being one of the ingredients that give you the supposed ‘energy boost’ that you need; studies have shown that consuming caffeine has a whole host of temporary benefits, such as:

Therefore, Red Bull is safe to drink and is definitely beneficial, but then again, always consume energy drinks in moderatiton.

The FDA recommends you have no more than 400mg of caffeine a day. Going over that limit, or simply having more caffeine than your body can tolerate, may lead to side effects such as:

Where To Buy Red Bull In Stores?

Now that we’ve gone with Red Bull’s brief information, we’re going to dive into this section of the stores that sell Red Bull.

Red Bull is a popular energy brand among the crowd and it’s no surprise that you can see Red Bull anywhere.

So how do you get your hands on a Red Bull?

Here’s a quick list of stores where you can buy Red Bull:

  • Walmart
  • Costco
  • 7/11
  • Target

Or you can visit Red Bull’s website and use its store locator feature to check the stores near you that sell Red Bull.

Although there are no guarantees that every store has Red Bull in stock, so it might be a bit hit-or-miss depending where exactly you live,

Personally, I like buying my energy drinks online as it is more convenient for me, and it’s always cheaper because of the coupons or discounts I receive from my email.

You’ll be surprised at the great deals and affordable prices these online retailers have!

Where To Buy Red Bull Energy Drink Online?

Red Bull somehow doesn’t sell their energy drinks on their official website but rather their merch. Nonetheless, various online stores offer Red Bull Energy Drinks.

Drizly.com

Drizly is an alcohol e-commerce store that offers different alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Drizly also offers a $5 discount when you sign up to their email list.

The good thing about Drizly besides their store locator is the quick delivery. Drizly prides itself in delivering your goodies within 60 minutes (subject to the stores) and even offers an arrangement for sending your beverages as gifts.

They also have an application for mobile devices, which is amazing because you can order beverages and use the GPS feature to locate stores near you and deliver your beverages to you easily.

As an aside, while Red Bull is often mixed with alcohol, I highly recommend you don’t actually do so. That’s because of how caffeine and alcohol affect one another, with the caffeine making you feel a lot more sober than you actually are.

As such, it’s pretty dangerous to have both Red Bull and alcohol together due to the potential for excessive drinking and accidents, so be sure to drink both your Red Bull and alcoholic beverages responsibly (and separately).

Amazon

Being one of the leading e-commerce platforms globally, Amazon offers a wide array of beverages, and for that is my best go-to place for getting my energy drinks.

The best part about shopping in Amazon is its user experience interface; it also recommends related products or products consumers might like. Sort of like plugging the varieties of the same brand.

E-Bay

Ebay is a great spot for great and rare finds. Luckily, Ebay offers limited-edition flavors of energy drinks, but it is quite costly in price since some of these flavors are discontinued.

However, the good thing about Ebay is you can contact the seller directly and negotiate for a better price if you want.

Additionally, Ebay is also partnered with PayPal’s Protection making it one of the safest e-commerce websites for buyers to shop online.

However, when shopping on Ebay, it is also important to note that you’re not dealing with big businesses but rather individual retailers. That’s why it’s important to be extra careful in order t avoid getting ripped off.

Walmart

Walmart sells Red Bull and usually in packs.

They also do deliveries and you can either choose to have your Red Bull delivered the same day or you can schedule your delivery day.

Either way, it’s convenient and free. But Walmart does not deliver or ship overseas. Buyers within the US do get free shipping if they have a Walmart+ account. Non-Walmart+ users can also get free shipping of their purchases if they exceed $35. Otherwise, they need to pay a flat rate of around $6 per order. 

Pros of Buying Online

Besides the fact that it is more convenient and you get exclusive discounts, buying online has more to offer. Here are some of them:

  • Hassle-free sales
  • Product reviews
  • Delivers right to your doorstep
  • Better prices
  • Easy price comparisons

These are just among the pros of buying online, and these are just some of the reasons I prefer over going to physical stores.

Although shipping and delivery fees are sometimes included, it is still better to make your own judgment.

Especially if the shipping costs are higher than what you bought, you can do your own research and find physical stores near you that sell Red Bull.

Final Thoughts

Personally, Red Bull is best bought online, although its widespread popularity means you can get one at your local convenience store for relatively low effort as well,

It’s an easy process; all you have to do is open a tab and search for stores near you that sell Red Bull. More so, you can even grab a discount and coupons that are not being given in physical stores.

I do highly suggest that you buy in packs though because they are cheaper than buying them individually. Moreover, the prices of Red Bull aren’t that awful; it’s actually a good buy for around $2 per can or $26 for a pack of 12; at least it provides you the boost you need.

Of course, the perks of being a globally popular brand is you’re definitely going to find one just about anywhere. So if you’re looking for a quick boost with no fuss, heading down to your local store is definitely an option as well.
