Windows 7: Online Foods

Online Foods

I'm always amazed at the prices of online foods. When I went to WalMart yesterday, I started to buy a whole pastrami, but balked at the price ($27.xx) at $4.98 per lb. and ended up buying a JennieO turkey pastrami instead ($14.xx) at $3.98 per lb.

I just Googled for this online, and what I found was from $12.75 - $20 per lb. + shipping. I know that the quality of foods vary widely, but I seriously doubt that their pastrami was that much better than what WalMart had.

Food just seems to be the one thing that one can't save money onllne with.

Here in TN all Foods clothing all necessities are taxed. If they would just stop taxing food it wouldn't be such a big deal. Food is something you cant live without. Pretty Sad

Especially since it's kind of hard to sample it

US laws prevent you from importing certain foods ( leaving the shipping/handling fees aside)
I found that it usually don't pay to order food online so I only order if I want something specific that
a) isn't available in my area
b) when it's something where the price is not as much of an issue to me

Fazit:
What works for computer parts like a charm...terribly fails when it comes to food items

Here in Iowa there is no tax on food as long as it not prepared like in the deli

Amen, if food wasnt taxed it would be better, but still not perfect. its sad when you can't typically get all name brand products as the end result is so much more. its tough.

My wife sells prepared foods and certain imported food items through our website. The cost of packaging greatly exceeds that of shipping.

Also, we get premium pricing based on a simple fact: if the product were available locally, our customers would not order from her.
