Amazon.com has offered groceries for a while. Each week it offers sales and specials even coupons.
If you sign up for a subscription you can also save an extra 15 percent and get free shipping on items you routinely buy.
Now other manufacturers are getting into the game.
Procter & Gamble just launched its new shopping site.
The company doesn’t make any promises that the products are cheaper than what you can find in the store, but here’s what Shop Smart Magazine found: Dawn detergent was $4.99 for 38-oz. size; the writer conducting the test usually pays $2.79 for 12-oz. package; Cascade was $7.99 for the 75-oz. box; the writer usually pays $4.59 for the 45-oz. box. And Iams dog food was $15.99 for the 8-pound bag— a few more pennies than the $15.49 the writer usually pays at the store.
I found the Oil of Olay Cleansing Cloths I use selling for about a dollar less than what I normally pay at the store.
For the first 500 orders, if you buy $25 worth of products use code FREE25 at checkout and get free shipping. Otherwise shipping will cost you $5.
This is a new test site so the company is also asking for feedback.
General Mills has its own online store as well.
It doesn’t offer all of its products in fact the company says it is intended to help people find products that it can’t find in stores near their home.
Shipping is through USPS or FedEx and if you want to know shipping charges before you begin the checkout process you can use the Shipping Estimator by clicking on the "Review Cart/Checkout".
