There is no doubt that Amazon’s convenience and selection is virtually unrivaled in the online shopping space. For a long time, Amazon set itself apart as the cheapest bargain when it came to buying items on the Internet.

But is this really true now that other competitors have entered the market? Several sources say, “not anymore!” In fact, Time discovered last year that Jet.com could easily save users about $500 per year.

Nonetheless, when comparing Amazon to Jet.com, it isn’t exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. When considering convenience, selection, customer service and overall experience, Amazon easily beats out Jet. And if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you have the extra perks of music and video streaming, in addition to free two-day (in some cases, free one-day) shipping.

However, you shouldn’t let this keep you from getting the best deal. Here are 10 items that are cheaper on Jet.com than they are on Amazon.com, according to a study done by Boomerang Commerce.
