Membership to Jet Now Free of Charge; $10 Discount Off Your First Order
A company named Jet launched back in July as a competitor to Amazon and was offering free membership for up to a year to people who joined within a certain timeframe — along with varying discounts off of the first order.
Curious, I joined as a member shortly after the launch; but I was largely unimpressed with the Internet web site in general, so I never purchased anything — but I did continue to receive e-mail messages from Jet.
I received an e-mail message earlier today titled Big announcement from Jet:
We have some exciting news to share today. Membership at Jet is now free for everyone. Yes, that’s right. Free. You can now shop Jet as much as you want, for as long as you want, without paying a fee for a Jet membership.
We’ve been thrilled by the positive response to Jet since launch. Our customers are building bigger carts than we expected, taking full advantage of our dynamic pricing engine to shop smarter and unlock more savings. Now, without a membership fee, we are opening up the power of the Jet platform to even more people. Shopping Jet gives you access to:
- Competitive prices on millions of items
- The ability to save more when you shop smart by building a Smart Cart and earning additional savings at checkout
- Free shipping on orders over $35, and free returns within 30 days
- 24/7 support from the Jet Heads, our customer care team
- The ability to earn JetCash to spend on Jet by shopping hundreds of great sites via the Jet Anywhere program
Plus, stay tuned in the coming weeks for additional offers just for you. It’s our way of saying that we hope you’ll visit Jet, take the pricing engine for a spin, and see how much you can save.
Thanks so much for being a part of our Jet community. Here’s to smart shopping!
I did not quite understand why membership was to have a fee anyway — especially at $50.00 per year — unless it was to compete with Amazon Prime, as no fee is required to take advantage of deals offered at Amazon. Perhaps Jet was attempting to emulate the business model of warehouse clubs — such as Costco or Sam’s Club?
Jet needs to be as competitive as possible to face off against a formidable company such as Amazon, which is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, in my opinion.
$10.00 Discount Offer
You can receive a discount of ten dollars off of your first order of $35.00 or greater from Jet using promotion code TENBUCKSNOW, which expires on Thursday, October 15, 2015. The offer — which is limited to one per household on the total cost of merchandise before tax is added — is for valid new customers only and cannot be applied to orders placed previously. This offer is void where prohibited; and it is subject to change or cancellation.
I may visit the official Internet web site of Jet to see if there are good deals available on any of the products offered for sale in which I am interested. I was not impressed this past June, however; so if you are interested, proceed with low expectations…
…and if you do find some great deals, please post them in the Comments section below to share with fellow readers of The Gate. Thank you.
