Turns out Costco has the lowest prices and the speediest shipping, according to BMO Capital Markets.
Rent-A-Center (RCII) has been grappling with soft comparable-store sales performance for quite some time now.
BMO Capital Markets’ Kelly Bania and her team researched price and shipping on several giant ecommerce sites including Amazon (AMZN), Wal-Mart (WMT) and its property Jet, and Costco (COST), writing that Costco actually had the lowest price and shipping days, although Amazon is still beating Wal-Mart in these aspects. In her first study, Bania selected items from 16 categories listed on Costco’s website, and found its prices to be 7% below Amazon’s, and that Costco had the best shipping times, with an average of 4.5 days per item, compared to 5.5 for Amazon.(Of the 123 items she studied, 16 were eligible for Amazon Prime.) She found that Wal-Mart and Jet to be 18% above Amazon’s prices, and they also had slower shipping times, of 9.8 days.
