Actually it's owned by Amazon! (more on that later) So, just the other day my wife and I came across a website called Wag.com. It's fairly new, having launched only 6 months ago. When you visit the site you, instantly you get a completely unique "shopping experience". Excellent photographs, soothing colors, professional web design...all the stuff we love. They advertise free shipping on orders over $49, within 1-2 days and no surcharges for heavy bulky items.
Immediately I think to compare with Amazon. I'm not going to be fooled by the fancy website! I want the cheapest price...the BEST deal! I randomly selected several items and found that Amazon was cheaper only half of the time...but usually on the bigger ticket items, such as Natural Balance Dog Food...which seems to be very popular BTW. All in all, I don't think that there is much of a price difference between the two sites. It really depends on what you are ordering and whether or not it is eligible for "FREE Super Saver Shipping" on Amazon, etc.
Wag.com is great if you want to browse while you shop. It's like going to Costco...you walk in for toilet paper and you leave with a new Vita-mix blender, a new printer and 25 boxes of Altoids! It's well done. Unlike Amazon, where it can be sometimes difficult to wander around because they have SO much stuff! (hence the name, Amazon!) We bought a BIG bag of dog food...and it came in two days...no shipping $. Saves me from lugging it out of my trunk...Sweet!
