Google Express versus Amazon Prime: Two giants competing

Amazon Prime seems to be comfortable at being the only giant at the online delivery game, but now he has nothing less than Google, with its brand new Google Express feature and website where they will try to get it all.

In case you don’t know what is Amazon Prime about we will start there and after we will discuss about the difference between them and who will be the grand winner.

Amazon Prime offers a nice package for those users who like to listen to music or watch movies or tv while shopping fast and at good prices. They have a nice variant of well known places to shop.

Google Express come here with a similar idea but decided to outcome some of their plans and terms.

Google Express

Beach will drive the Google marked Prius and deliver the merchandise today. Google has about 50 delivery cars on the streets. Google Shopping Express is the search engine’s answer to same-day delivery for retail brick-and-mortar merchants trying to survive in an era where consumers shop on their desktops and smartphones.

As you can see Google Express anual fee is a little bit lower and also give you the chance to try it on a monthly bases.

The free delivery is at same day for orders of $15 (which is pretty easy to get) and free two day shipping for Amazon Prime.

Google Express is limited to the following: San Francisco, Peninsula and San Jose; West Los Angeles; Manhattan; Chicago; Boston; and Washington, D.C. Delivery-eligible cities are expected to expand in the future.

Over at Amazon Prime, all their members can receive free same-day delivery on orders over $35 ($20 more than Google). If your order is less than $35, delivery is $5.99 per order. Delivery is limited to the following metro areas: Seattle/Tacoma; San Francisco Bay Area; Los Angeles; San Diego; Phoenix; Dallas/Ft. Worth; Tampa Bay Area; Atlanta; Washington, D.C.; Baltimore; Philadelphia; New York City; and Boston.

So I won’t tell you were you should shop, because really both of them are great and very reliable ones. But if you never shop online just go for the one that meets your minimum weekly amounts on food and others, and if you tried Amazon Primer before maybe you can sign up for a free trial at Google Express and check it out for yourself.
