Deal Shopping – A Look at Jet

Jet Logo
Shopping online can be wonderful, but we also have to be careful. Is that low price too good to be true? How fast will they ship? Is my information secure? While we tend to stick to sites we trust and are established, the former founder of Diapers.com launched Jet, a new shopping site designed to be a cross between Amazon and Costco/Sam’s Club. I take a look at this new site and whether you should consider it for your anime and manga (and other) purchases.

EXPIRED Deal Alert – Sailor Moon R Cutie Moon Rod Proplica Only $57.45 – 43% Off!

While I usually post manga-related deals, this is too hot not to share!

Sailor Moon R Proplica

Right now at Amazon, the Sailor Moon R Cutie Moon Rod Proplica is only $57.45, 43% off the MSRP of $100. I don’t know how long the price will last, but since Amazon’s prices fluctuate constantly, I would hurry if you’re interested.

The next lowest price for this item is about $70 shipped on eBay. All the lowest buy-it-now prices on eBay just dropped today, in line with Amazon’s sudden price drop. I know that’s not a coincidence. Previously, the cheapest one has ever gone was about $68 for a used/open box one.

The Proplica line is Bandai’s premium prop and replica items of Sailor Moon wands and brooches. Featuring sounds and voices directly from the anime as well as Moon Kingdom base, this is a beautiful item for cosplayers or collectors. If you want to learn more about it, Sailor Moon Collectibles has a nice video review.

Don’t forget to order through Amazon Smile to make a donation to the charity of your choice!

EXPIRED Deal – Free 12 Months of Jet Membership with Purchase

A new site called Jet just launched. This site is billing itself as a members-only site like Costco or Sam’s Club. Right now, when you sign up with the promo code CURISMA, you can get a free 12 month membership. If you continue your membership, it will be $49 for a year. Other codes that might work include TAPJET and TKERSHAW. Sign up with the promo code now, but your 1 year will start from the date you place your first order. If you continue your membership, it’s $49.99 a year.

Jet is interesting in its pricing. It matches a lot of prices from Amazon and then discounts them further. Free shipping on $35 (before discounts). You do need to experiment a bit with their discounts. When you add items, Jet may discount other items further. So I played around with the site for a bit, and I had offers go up from under a $1 off up to $2-3 and so on. So add stuff, delete, and play around. Note that items are fulfilled by various third-party vendors like Buy.com and Walmart.com.

As I mentioned, they are matching a lot of Amazon’s prices. One example is Attack on Titan Colossal Edition 2. Your deal may vary, but right now they are offering it to me for $26.18 – $3.37 = $22.81. When I was testing the pricing algorithms by adding more to my cart, I had an offer for an additional $6 and change off, making this gigantic 5-in-1 volume for only $20.

They also offer additional discounts depending on your payment method, up to 1.5% off if you use a Visa debit card.

I did order a couple of volumes of Naruto for as low as $4.78 for volume 66 and Hetalia Axis Powers Complete DVD for $13.24.

EXPIRED Deals – Walmart Preorder Deals with Free Shipping

Walmart has a whole bunch of manga preorders heavily discounted (most 47-48% off) with free shipping! No minimum purchase required! You order several items at once, and they will all ship individually. Walmart accepts cash (pay in store within 48 hours), PayPal, and credit/debit cards.

I believe this covers most of the heavily discounted preorders. Note that some are due to be released real soon, so get your order in now before the free shipping disappears or the price goes up!

UPDATE: Since my original post, Walmart has lowered the price on some of these titles and raised the price on others. The bad deals have been removed, and new ones were added. Some of the titles that have been released since then are at the same price or lower, but they are no longer eligible for free shipping. Those titles are eligible for free shipping on $35+.

My pick this time around are the two large Kodansha USA Omnibuses: Attack on Titan Colossal Edition 2 for $25.94 and Fairy Tale: Master’s Edition 1 for $20.75.
