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.

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. Are you interested in Jet’s launch?
