The Retail competition heats up

Just a day ago, Wal-Mart ®, the biggest retailer in the world decided that to take on ® on its own turf, they are going to offer free two day shipping on two million items out of the 30 million items sold by them. Although everybody is applauding this move (including me) but in their case it is not as real competition as people think it is. True there is no membership fees (unlike ®) and the only condition is that the minimum order is $35.00 and it is a win-win situation for most customers who also happened to be® prime members where they have to pay $99.00 per year in order to avail the two day shipping. I will try Wal-Mart® and let you know how it goes but for now I believe that Amazon ® is much better than Wal-Mart® as Amazon ® much larger variety of items than Wal-Mart® for their two day shipping. Included in the Prime is also the unlimited streaming of movies available, plus free music and unlimited photo storage. Nothing can beat that, but if Wal-Mart can include all of the above and also include millions of other items in addition to the two million and still have no subscription fees than I think Wal-Mart® has a chance at giving serious headaches to ® but for now ® is still the winner but it will have now have to work harder to retain their loyal Prime customers.
