I wrote about Jet.com a few weeks ago, but wanted to remind you all that today is the last day to sign up for this new site and get a free 6-month membership. While this site is not yet live, it is an online e-commerce site which is will be a membership only site (similar to Coscto) and lower prices (similar to Costco). You will also be able to save even more money by ordering in bulk (similar to Costco). And even better, if you use a debit card you will get 1.5% off – although not so great for those who love to earn points and miles, but there are ways around it! The founder of the site, Marc Lore, was also the founder of Diapers.com and other Quisdi sites (which eventually was sold to Amazon).
As mentioned, the site is not currently live although there are some beta testers, but if you sign up now you can get a free 6-month membership. Today is the last day to sign up. You do not need to give your credit card number so there is no monthly fee that you’ll be hit with after your subscription expires. Technically you must sign up by 12pm ET tomorrow, February 6, 2015, but you might as well sign up now so you do not forget! The anticipated launch date is sometime this Spring or early Summer. From what I’ve heard, the yearly subscription price will be somewhere around $50.
Now, they are trying to incentivize you to tell your friends and family members about this online site by giving out “insider” points to everyone who signs up through your link. If you are able to be in the top 100,000, you’ll receive early access to the site. And if you happen to be in the top 10 you’ll earn Jet stock! You can also check your Jet Insider Status and compare it against the total number of people who have signed up which I find quite fun. Currently, there are 336,033 members who have signed up, so being in the top 100,000 is by no means impossible.
It will be interesting to see how this site does. Either it will be a massive hit or a massive failure in my opinion. Time will tell but I am excited for another competitive online shopping site!
Feel free to leave your Jet.com referral link below. Or you can sign up through my referral link if you are interested! The only thing it does is help you move up the rank in your Jet Insider status. Unfortunately I do not think any of us will be in the top 10 and earning Jet.com stock, but maybe in the top 100,000 to get early access!
