Walmart recently strengthened its position in the online battle for retail customers with its acquisition of the ecommerce website Jet.com. Together, Walmart and Jet are aiming to strike a blow to Amazon’s dominance in the online marketplace. But, which is better – Amazon or Jet.com? What is Jet?
This new partnership not only affects the businesses, of course. But, it affects us, too. I’m a huge fan of Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Now. So, I was curious about the differences between the two online shopping sites.
Whether you’re a staunch Amazon Prime supporter or you’re currently on the fence about proclaiming your loyalty to well-established Amazon or up-and-coming Jet, there are a few significant differences between the two sites that could affect your wallet for better or worse.
Amazon vs Jet.com
Jet initially charged membership fees when it launched a little over a year ago, but a few months afterwards, Jet surprised everyone by eliminating the $50 annual fee. Now, Jet members get free, 2-day shipping on most items (as long as your order is over $35, and there is a nifty dollar counter on the right-hand side of Jet’s website to help you track how close you are to the minimum order amount).
Amazon, on the other hand, charges $99 per year for its Prime membership (or $49 for the Amazon Student program). Not too many people seem deterred by the cost, as Amazon currently has over 54 million Prime members using its services.
Prime members get free, 2-day shipping (even same day shipping in some areas) on Prime-eligible items (almost anything sold or fulfilled by Amazon itself), as well as other unique membership benefits like music streaming, exclusive TV shows, movie streaming, access to the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (with hundreds of thousands of e-book titles) and cloud photo storage.
Jet is still relatively new in the online marketplace, which means its offerings for customers are slim compared to Amazon’s menu of options for Prime members. However, Jet is already showing signs that it will tackle other areas currently dominated by Amazon – such as grocery delivery services – which means that Jet could be a viable alternative for folks who don’t need all the bells and whistles that come with an Amazon Prime membership.
When Jet first launched, Jet’s prices beat out Amazon in many categories. As a smaller company taking on a giant, Jet continues to pull out all the stops to attract new customers, including a “TRIPLE15” promotion that takes 15% off your first 3 orders on Jet.com.
Jet also boasts that customers can “Watch prices drop as you shop!” Customers are able to choose lower prices by opting out of free returns, using debit cards to pay for orders, and ordering multiple quantities of single items. The different price options are displayed to the right of the product images, and the more you buy, the more you save on the price-per-item.
Is online banking safe? How do you choose the right online bank? Have you ever considered banking with a bank that doesn’t have any brick and mortar branches? Mobile and online banking options are more popular than ever. The Pew Research Center’s nationwide survey found that a majority of internet users bank online, and more people join the online banking bandwagon every year. In fact, the Federal Reserve reported that 35% of consumers have used mobile banking, while 74% of consumers used online banking. It’s no wonder why people are increasingly turning to the internet to access, transfer, and manage their money: it’s convenient, you don’t have to talk to anyone (if you don’t want to), and online banking is … Read more

If you’ve followed Money Q&A for any amount of time, you’re probably aware of how I feel about life insurance. I’m a huge fan of term life insurance. Term life insurance, in my opinion, is the only way to go. I recently realized that I don’t have enough life insurance coverage for my wife. Even though she is a stay-at-home mom, the paltry amount of life insurance coverage that I have on her through my work just isn’t enough. There are so many benefits that stay-at-home parents provide for the family. And, those costs are easy to overlook if you’re not careful. Stay-at-home spouses don’t have any income. And, life insurance is meant to be an income replacement tool to … Read more
Of the many unforeseen and hidden monthly costs that creep into higher monthly household expenditure, windows ranks up high. Windows affect your home value, your electricity usage as a result of heating/cooling required and also personal safety. To be entirely honest, it’s the single most overlooked household fixture however one of the most important.
Bad windows allow for weather infiltration that can adversely affect a home. Be it with weather that leads to wooden window rot or rain entering through poorly insulated and misaligned window frames. The fact is that, as is the case for many things, you get what you pay for!
Speaking of paying, windows poorly insulated directly influence electricity usage that increases your bill as colder months sees the cold air entering as would be the same for warmer months with warm air. Either way heating or cooling of the rooms dictate usage and impacts month end expenditure on bills.
Windows certainly also determine the selling price of a home. It affects the aesthetic which can either increase or decrease the asking price of the home based on quality, look and feel. Buyers or long-term rental candidates will expect the windows to be of the best standard, clean without discoloring, well insulated and safe to the outside world.
In the case of DIY solutions in respect of home window repairs or replacement, its only suggested in consultation with an expert. Regardless of the attempt, nothing beats the finish of a reputable and well regarded windows specialist company or expert.
The window of choice may also need a long term approach than that of a quick fix solution so instead of going for an easy and cheaper window solution, look at long term benefits of a professional approach. Its been said nothing worst that unevenly align window frames or skew windows altogether. This not only interferes with having an aesthetically superior home, but also with the cement refurbishment costs to architecturally redesign a window frame and fitting.
