Wrap Up Your Christmas Shopping with Jet

Disclosure: I am a Jet blogger affiliate and this post contains affiliate links; all opinions expressed are my own.

I first met Jet at BlogHer earlier this year and was impressed by their ship-your-swag booth (such a great idea!). Black Friday came and went without us stepping foot in a store to do Christmas shopping, and while I did get a couple smaller items on Cyber Monday, shopping online is still my preferred method for getting Christmas shopping done. 

Well here it is a week until the big day, and I've been watching shipping deadlines like a hawk! Since attending BlogHer I've also been watching Jet's price comparison emails that are often included in their newsletters. I was especially interested to see how their prices compare to Amazon so I did a comparison of a few items from my cart (yes, I keep an ongoing cart and shift items in and out of it constantly - it's a bit of obsession!):


                                          Jet price: $14.61                                                 
                                          Amazon price: $16.86
Safeco Onyx Mesh Cube
                                         Jet price: $23.97
                                         Amazon price: $19.99

Kantek Acrylic Pencil Cup
                                        Jet price: $7.99
                                        Amazon price: $7.99

2-16oz pack
                                            Jet price: $24.78
                                            Amazon price: $20.98

SanDisk 32GB Class 10 microSDHC Card with Adapter

                                               Jet price: $14.66
                                               Amazon price: $13.96  

So the final price comparison was*:

Jet total: $83.41
Amazon total: $79.78 

*prices as of December 19, 2015

Ahhh so close, but could there still an advantage?

Well, the way Jet works the more you buy the more you savings you accumulate especially on related items. You can save even more by declining the option to return your items. Jet even lets you see savings tally up as you shop! 

Still curious about how it works? Check out this video:


I like how using Jet is kind of like a savings game! You can see how low you can go, plus there's free shipping on orders over $35. Jet also has an approachable, fun-loving vibe (if you can't tell by the video above) and during this holiday season shipping crunch I appreciate that they're up front about shipping guarantees with their 2-day shipping icon attached to certain items. On top of all this Jet's partnered with over 600 online retailers to provide shoppers with additional discounts. It's like a network of savings!
