Jet vs. Amazon
Truth is, it’s hard to say who is cheaper. The better answer is: Well, it depends. While Amazon scores 4.4 (the highest possible) for value, compared to Jet which received a 2.9 rating, says Michael Lai, CEO of Sitejabber, it can be worth doing an item-by-item cost comparison. “You cannot crown a particular E-tailer as lower or lowest priced on every item,” explains Edgar Dworsky, founder and editor of Consumer World. “Shoppers have to comparison shop to get the best deal. Use a site like Camelcamelcamel that provides the price history of items at Amazon and a price history of other sellers combined today to check whether Amazon’s current price is good, great, or just so-so.” And don’t discount even small discounts—saving even 50¢ on everyday items can really add up over the course of a year. You can use those saving to score some of these 14 amazing things you can buy on Amazon for less than $1.
Generally speaking, when it comes to Jet vs. Amazon, Jet offers a bigger selection of household cleaning supplies, especially specialty cleaning goods. For example, on Amazon, you’ll spend $42 for a pack of 4, 50-ounce containers of Greenshield Organic laundry detergent, while Jet sells a 100-ounce container of detergent for under $16 (a better deal).
Sometimes the difference in price on Jet vs. Amazon is obvious to see, like when it comes to this AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion. On Amazon, it’s $12.97 while on Jet the same size bottle is $14.44.
Whether you want to pick up a new bucket of crayons for your kids or you want them for yourself to relax with an adult coloring book, you’ll find them for less at Jet where the Crayola Ultimate Crayon Bucket 200 is $18, compared to $19.82 on Amazon.
If you have the space to buy in bulk, you can save even more. Folgers Classic Roast Medium Ground Coffee, 48-ounce, goes for $12.59 on Jet, yet you can find two containers of the same size for $22.04 on Amazon. If you’re willing to stock up, you can save $3.14. Coffee isn’t the only underrated grocery on Amazon.
The smart move for smart TVs is Amazon where the TCL 55″ HDTV 55R617 is $529 on Amazon and $649.99 on Jet. Another way to save is to be patient. Amazon will track the cost of the items that you add to your cart and will send you an update when the prices go down or if a similar item goes on sale. This is just one of the money-saving tricks on Amazon you need to know about.
