View Full Version : Amazon trick, re: raw food ingredients
09-09-2006, 11:20 AM
I just discovered this today:
If you search for "raw" at Amazon in their "grocery" section, you'll get 40 hits.
But, if you search for "raw" in their "gourmet food" section, you'll get over 400 hits.
Strange, but true. Happy hunting.

The difference is that most items in the "grocery" category are items from Amazon's stock. Most of the items in the "gourmet" category are from retailors who use Amazon as their store front and, therefore, their products are not qualified for the free super saver shipping. If you place one order that includes items from multiple retailors, you end up paying shipping fees to each of these retailors -- kinda like when you buy used books from different vendors through Amazon. Most of the time, the shipping far exceeds the total cost of the products themselves. I learned my lesson the hard way.
But for people who don't mind paying huge shipping fees, yes, buying from Amazon's gourmet section is very convenient.
