Knowing how quickly I pick up on current affairs, Amazon.co.uk have probably been doing this for weeks. I woke up this morning to the news that online retail giant, Amazon, have begun selling groceries; the news went onto explain that Amazon were rewarding customers for buying in bulk.
I’ve had a look to check the offerings out. The link is easy to miss, between Hobbies and DIY you’ll find a Grocery menu towards the top left of the home page.
The first thing I noticed was that there were indeed some nice bulk offerings when it came to the pasta and noodles.
The second thing I noticed was the price of booze.
The cheapest bottle of drinking wine is a Gold County Rose Zinfandel Blush at £5.47.
Not exactly Laithwaites pricing and conspicuously lacking a “crate” offering (unless I’m missing something).
A lot of those offerings were in bulk; I’m even thinking of dusting the old thing off and using it again (the senseo that is).
Still, there are offerings from Whiskas so my cats will be happy.
