Amazon is currently the undisputed king of e-commerce, but the company may finally have a serious competitor now that Jet.com has launched. How do the two compare though, which one is the better choice? Obviously the answer to those questions are pretty subjective, but the people at Rather Be Shopping have taken an extensive look at the two services to give consumers a better idea of their strengths and weaknesses.
Amazon Prime is wildly popular with shoppers but it’s not the only subscription based shopping service out there. Last month Jet.com launched with the hopes of unseating Jeff Bezos’s empire and it offered some great deals of its own that in many cases bested Amazon Prime’s prices. Rather Be Shopping has taken an extensive look at both Amazon Prime and Jet.com and has written up a terrific comparison to help shoppers determine which service is right for them. So what are the most important things to know about each service? In the case of Jet.com, you need to remember that you must order at least $35 worth of merchandise to get free shipping. You also need to keep in mind that the availability of two-day shipping is limited on Jet.com and mostly applies to household goods. Personal electronics will typically have shipping times of between two and five days.
