Most of us enjoy the shopping process for apparel or cosmetics, but not many actually enjoy the process of buying groceries, jostling with the crowds, especially on weekday evenings or weekends.
Online shopping for groceries have become more popular, and recently I have been alerted to the fact that there’s a new platform that gives greater savings. #auntymodeon
The items available in the all-new Family Market are on the average 10-30% cheaper than retail/ other online stores.
Besides searching for the items you want specifically, I’d highly recommend looking through the Promotions as well as the Best Sellers. These would most probably be the ones that enable you to have the most savings.
I’ve taken three items to compare how Family Market fares in relation to other online platforms.
Diapers are a must-have for parents with young children and this is an item that constantly needs to be replenished so I started looking for that first.
As you can see, buying the same item on Honestbee’s Family Market saves about $3.90, which is 30% cheaper. Per diaper, Honestbee’s is 39cents, Redmart’s is 51.5cents and FairPrice’s is 51.2cents.
2) Beauty – Hair color
Clearly from the above comparison, you will save at least 40% if you buy from Family Market!
3) Wet Wipes
If you are just buying one of these, Family Market’s would be the cheapest. However, Redmart’s promotion of ‘Buy 2 Get 1 Free’ works out to be actually cheapest if you are going for bulk quantity.
In general, the actual savings you get from shopping at Family Market is largely dependent on the various stores’ promotions at the time you’re shopping.
No one can guarantee exactly how much you’d save or whether everything will always be cheaper on Family Market.
Take for instance, at the time that I’m crafting this post, here’s the comparison of Nescafe Gold Blend 200g jar.
As you can see, Family Market is not the most price-competitive for this particular product, so sometimes it’s also about timing of promotions, which is why I highly recommend checking out the promotions section of the online shopping platform.
The main drawback I find about Family Market is that the variety of some categories of products might not be wide enough at the moment. For instance, there are only four products currently in the Supplements section of Family Market as compared to the multifarious options on other online stores. Family Market’s pretty new for now, so perhaps there might be more options in future. 🙂
Overall, I find that the savings can be really significant on Family Market, as I have illustrated earlier so I’d still recommend that you check out the store to see if it fits your family’s needs! Happy shopping and here’s to greater savings!
