I am using Red Mart but notified that it would be under Lazada soon. Not sure how this will affect the prices or delivery details.

Lazada acquired Redmart around end of 2016 so it has been 2 years under Lazada. Now only change name. I don’t think it will affect the prices.

Anyway, can always compare the prices with other online supermarkets easily. But before you quit Redmart, it’s better to use the voucher that they gave when we agreed to migrate our account to Lazada about 2 weeks ago :smile:

Can try EAmart too. The prices are similar to Redmart and they dont have a minimum order for free delivery. I have done both and found the price about the same (+/- 10c). Haven't tried NTUC online before though. Also, I did a google for coupons and some of the online coupons actually work for EAmart (eg. 12% off, etc).

thanks Zappy, I will try EAmart the next time round.

qms, i usually keyed in the pricing of my regular products in my phone. So whenever I saw a good deal will easily be able to compare the prices. Most of my regular products seen at Venus HDB outlet are the same as the Venus online, for instance the big big item like softlan. But there are 1 or 2 of my regular products only sold as carton price. You might want to do your own check. Anyway the beauty of online, is one can cross-checked other stores for comparison.

Vouchers are great deals when buying online.. Sometimes you'll get a lot of discounts than buying in a physical store.
