born to fail.
At some point Amazon is going to put itself up for sale on Amazon and the cycle will be complete.
Wonder if it will be like the last order i tried from Amazon - order an item 'in stock' and then receive an e-mail saying that it will in fact be a couple of weeks before they have stock.
Found the cheesecake:
Holy crap that's some expensive cheesecake!
Yeah, but look at it. There's a sprig of mint and everything!
Who would actually use this for fresh food I mean I feel your taking the risk from the normal supermarket website on that stuff.
Still tempted to make a small shop up on it and see me pay 30 quid for food and about £50 for shipping.
Still I'm going to see if my Prime account helps me with the nice range of retro sweets they seem to have.
Hurm, no thx.
For christmas i bought 2 cheesecakes from the english cheesecake company and that came to £57, Very expensive but cheesecake's a serious thing!
Am I a bit early in saying that amazon's grocery idea is going to fail? They are too overpriced compared to the supermarkets.
i.e box of 48 walkers paprika crips, £18! last 32 box I got from asda for £5!
Yea £4.99 for one bottle of Lynx and £4.25 to deliver it? Yea I dont think this is going to take off on Amazon somehow
Our cheesecakes are deluxe deep vanilla cheesecakes,,,,and delivered free of charge......and are for special occasions and celebrations hence the price tag.....starting from £19.99.....http://www.englishcheesecake.com/shop/category/id/2
And finally all the WOW-Nerdz can minimize their offline time once more
ROFL, since I posted that earlier it's now been reduced from £17 to £15.
Conclusive proof that Amazon reads bit-tech!
I hope they do eventually introduce the 2 hour slot, for some creative delivery abuse:
Just order 1 4oz bag of crisps and a 60" plasma for delivery.
Edit: Cheesecake spam? Oh my.
Not only that they've signed up!!
Welcome, purveyor of cheesecake!
Any chance of a bit-tech partnership providing free delivery/discounts?
Insane idea. I'll buy food from a food company thanks.
On a tangent, saw my first e-reader in use on the tube, that was the last big thing pimped just before last Christmas by Amazon and other sites. So on that evidence people will only give this a proper go at the end of the year and during next winter - if they're the kind of groceries that don't attract VAT.
This is excellent, it's just a shame so little of the offerings are actually fulfilled by Amazon.
