Amazon takes over the retail world!

Last Update: April 26, 2014

That does not sound like breaking news, I know, but here is the latest that was released to the press just 2 days ago: Amazon is introducing it's grocery service in the U.S..

Just when you thought Amazon was already selling every item known to man, here it comes going after grocery stores and discounters like Walmart. Not to mention local businesses. Watch out moms & pops, you thought Walmart had taken over, here is the newest money hungry machine to court your customers; Amazon.

Called ''Prime Pantry'' and available to Prime members only, this online service does actually sound pretty convenient. Flat shipping rate of 5.99$ for a 45 pound box of groceries. Not unlike Costco clubs, there is an annual Prime membership of 99$.

Now it's the weekend, you might not want to go out for groceries, look around for parking and wait in line, would you use this service? Do you think this is where grocery shopping is heading, online? Or are you fed up of the Amazon retail world takeover!?

Hum...I wonder if affiliates get commissions off of grocery items? Lol.

I don't have access to this service either, but thinking if it's an incredible success, who knows they could branch out and have warehouses in different countries!

I haven't found any affiliate info yet, but it'll probably come, they will need all the marketing they can get. Hopefully it'll be of interest $.
