I was a huge fan of Alice.com until they suddenly and without warning, went belly up, leaving me high and dry. I had around a dozen things on “auto ship” that arrived at my door, automatically every month and I knew I was getting the best price. So when they went out of business, I was pretty sad!
When I heard about mySupermarket, I was relieved because it meant I wouldn’t have to spend HOURS (sometimes days) comparing the prices of the items I purchase most. With mySupermarket, you can easily compare the prices on the item you want to buy.
1. Just fill up your cart with all the household essentials you want to buy.
2. mySupermarket tells you which store has the best price, compared against 8 of the top retailers like Target, Drugstore.com and Walmart.
3. Checkout with one payment and mySupermarket does the rest!
Sounded easy enough so I decided to try it out. I added 7 items to my cart including papertowels, laundry detergent, toilet paper and fabric softener. MySupermarket compared each of the items that I wanted to buy and not only told me which store had the best price on the particular item I wanted to purchase but also told me if comparable items would save me even more money.
So not only did it tell me which store had the lowest price on Bounty paper towels, but showed me I could save money if I switched to Brawny. I decided, “Oh what the heck, I’ll give Brawny a try!”. And I saved over $5! We’ll see how they stand up in my kitchen now…
Overall, the process was not only super easy but checking out was a breeze! I’m really glad I decided to give mySupermarket a try because it saved me a LOT of time doing what I would normally do before buying anything online – researching until I find the best price.
Official Press Release From June, 2014
mySupermarket, a new kind of shopping experience that enables consumers to shop for the best price for groceries and everyday essentials from major online retailers all in one place, today launched in the U.S. The company has already seen major success in the U.K. since 2006 with 10% of households shopping at mySupermarket every month. mySupermarket offers a simple mission: to find consumers the best price for the brands they want and need while bringing complete transparency to the shopping experience. The site can help consumers save 20% on their weekly shopping by easily allowing them to compare prices.
mySupermarket compares over 55,000 items, culling prices from Amazon, Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Costco, Soap.com, Diapers.com and Drugstore.com. mySupermarket offers price per unit comparisons across retailers that enable consumers to make well-informed product choices. An exclusive Swap & Save algorithm offers shoppers suggestions when to swap an item they are interested in to a different size, similar product, or brand that costs less per unit. In addition to finding the best prices, mySupermarket also offers a streamlined checkout process, enabling shoppers to enter their shipping and payment information once, even if purchasing items from different retailers. Additionally, mySupermarket optimizes shipments for each order, meaning that if shoppers cannot get free shipping from the retailer on a cart valued at $75 or higher, the site will pick up those costs.
“mySupermarket revolutionized the grocery shopping experience overseas and we’re very pleased to share this tool with U.S. customers,” said Allon Bloch, CEO.
My thoughts and opinions are my own, regardless of monetary compensation.
My opinion is that mySupermarket is awesome.
