Let's start this article with a warning banner: 'K-Cup pods shoppers beware! Amazon is ripping you off.'
HOBOKEN, N.J. - March 11, 2022 - PRLog -- When Amazon launched in 1994 we were all excited at the new online market that cut across many cities at a time. We could literally shop from anywhere and whenever. Such a beautiful pitch when you think about it. So beautiful that we barely cared to ask if it costs more to purchase items from them. But guess what? It costs at least 20 – 50% MORE to buy from Amazon. Read more to learn how.
We began partnering with Amazon.com in the 90s. We used the site for more than a decade and attained the Amazon Customer satisfaction cadre. But it took a whole decade to realize that we had literally been ripped off, and not just that, our customers were too. You don't have to wait that long. Here's a summary of how much you lose per purchase (using K-cups as a case study).
|Name||Pack||Amazon Price||K Cups for Sale Prices|
|Green mountain Breakfast Blend||24 pack||$21.04 + shipping||$14.99 free shipping|
|Green Mountain Decaf Dark Magic||24 pack||$19.92 + shipping||$14.99 free shipping|
|Green Mountain Dark Magic||48 pack||$29.99 + shipping||$29.99 free shipping|
|Green Mountain Dark Magic||72 pack||$42.49||$39.99 free shipping|
|Green Mountain Caramel Vanilla Cream||72 pack||$43.52||$39.99 free shipping|
|Green Mountain Double Diamond (https://kcupsforsale.com/product/green-mountain-coffee-roasters-double-diamond-96-pack/)||96 pack||$50.31 + shipping||$48.99 free shipping|
|Green Mountain French Vanilla (https://kcupsforsale.com/product/green-mountain-coffee-roasters-french-vanilla-96-pack/)||96 pack||$52.56 + shipping||$48.99 free shipping|
|Green mountain Breakfast Blend (https://kcupsforsale.com/product/green-mountain-coffee-roastersbreakfast-blend-96-pack-copy/)||96 pack||$38.99 **||$48.99 free shipping|
Just look carefully at that table, and you will see the price discrepancies. More so, the fewer packs you buy, the more you spend. Quite shocking that for a 24pack of green mountain breakfast blend, you spend an additional $7 + a SHIPPING FEE (that is avoidable if you purchase from Kcups.com).
The policies adopted by the website make items cost more there.
For example, Amazon takes a referral fee of 8% - 15% for every item sold. To cover the cost, vendors include that in the prices displayed. The sellers lose money through packages and plans, and they invariably make it from you, the customers.
Also, if you aren't careful, some vendors overprice their items. You should avoid those and compare prices before closing an order. We have prepared a complete guide on retail shopping from amazon, the ups and downs, and the tips. Click here to read. (https://bit.ly/3MGV3bN)
