What's The disagreement Between Amazon And Jet.com?
In another competition-heating coast against Amazon and Whole Foods, Walmart-owned Jet.com recently launched an in-house collection of household essentials. But, what’s the disagreement between the two e-commerce giants?
Uniquely J, Jet.com’s unique private-label household brand, offers around 50 curated panty essentials like coffee, cleaning supplies, laundry, pantry goods, paper products, and food storage, with more categories to reach. But, are Uniquely J’s prices competitive? It depends.
For comparison, Uniquely J’s single-serve coffee cups are $20 for 42-count container, while Amazon’s best-selling Keurig k-cup set is $24 for 40-count. (Amazon’s in-house k-cup brand is currently sold out on the site).
Yet, when it comes to their perfume-free, full-purpose cleaner, Jet.com’s brand may not be measuring up to Amazon. You’ll spend $4 for a 28 ounce bottle of cleaner at Jet.com, while other natural, full-purpose cleaners (like Method and Seventh Generation) average approximately $3 on Amazon. But, retain in intellect that you need a $99 year-long Amazon Prime membership for those prices.
But, when it comes to quality, this might be where Jet.com shines. The Uniquely J line, created to attract younger, millennial shoppers, focuses on environmentally friendly, well-designed products. The cleaning products are plant based, the coffee is composed of USDA-certified biological and unprejudiced trade beans, and they exhaust only BPA-free plastic bags. Plus, the products are sold in creative, artist-designed packaging.
But, while Jet.com doesn’t provide free two-day shipping on full purchases like Amazon, it does offer free two-to-five-day shipping on orders over $35, with faster two-day shipping on thousands of essentials. However, to find free two-day shipping on any and full Amazon purchases, again, you need to be an Amazon Prime member.
Bottom line, your shopping habits will probably best settle which retail giant is best for you and your family. whether you’re interested in quick shipping on an ever-growing choice of brands and products, Amazon Prime is probably your best bet. But whether you’re not willing to dish out the $99 membership fee, and instead want an easy alternative to stock up on household essentials, Jet.com and Uniquely J might be the better alternative.
Either way, occupy a peek at the rest of Uniquely J’s brand unique choice of domestic basics and discover the disagreement for yourself.
