...AND CHEAPER...:

Amazon Prime competitor Jet.com is dropping its $49 membership fee (Natt Garun, 10/07/16, Next Web)

Less than three months since its launch, online retailer Jet.com is already planning to change its revenue strategy. In a Medium blog post today, Jet.com CEO Marc Lore says the company will ditch its $49 annual membership fee to extend its reach.

Jet.com is similar to Amazon in that it offers everyday items - from cleaning products and appliances to toys and sporting goods - for a low price with free shipping on orders over $35. Its 'Smart Cart' system lets customers save around 5 percent when ordering the items in bulk. Jet.com works with third party retailers to fulfill orders, and offers free returns on all items.
