JET.COM VS. AMAZON: CHEAPEST PLACE TO BUY OFFICE SUPPLIES
Has Amazon finally found its biggest competitor? Start-up Jet.com opened up their e-doors on Tuesday after drawing in a whopping $220 million in venture capital. This New Jersey-based e-commerce start-up is looking to convert Amazon members to their service that charges almost half the price of Prime.
So with the promise of lower prices and tons of savings, which should you turn to when it comes to office supplies? We were supercurious, so we did some digging around to compare the prices of common office supplies you can find on the two sites.

So far, the individual prices seem comparable to each other. But what about the grand total?
It turns out that despite having similar prices for individual items, Jet.com is actually cheaper to buy your office supplies from. The more items you add to your cart, the more you save. Plain and simple. When it comes to office supplies, you’re buying in bulk, which actually makes Jet.com the cheaper option.
