And for customer service Amazon>Jet>WalMart. WalMart likely could have started from the ground up for much less than $3.3B. It already has much of the back end. The extra cash could have gone toward loss leaders.

So far jet saved money for me... might be iam picking only deal items or whenever coupon codes are out

I wanted to like jet, but the search engine for their website was just painful to use.

no worse than that pathetic P.O.S. that Amaz0n uses.† Seems like one of them could have hired talent capable of writing something decent and usable.

Search engines will not provide desired results without relevant search terms and descriptors. The old saying "garbage in, garbage out" has not been superseded by "new tech" or more talented/smarter programmers.†

Amazon's prices fluctuate a great deal so it depends on the item and when you are looking to buy. I have noticed that many items in my history have increased in price substantially on Amazon over the last year.

Yes, Amazon has really increased their prices lately. I have been having the best luck with Target.com and WalMart.com. Jet seems to no longer stock much of what I used to buy from them.
