Peepod v. AmQuix

Scott,

A few days ago you asked for these numbers on the Quixtar Now message board. I had the figures that I posted scrawled on a note pad.

I went back through the numbers tonight on both websites for the products that I originally posted on 1/29.

It is kind of a pain figuring this stuff out because you have to try hard to compare apples to apples by converting to per oz, or per 100, or whatever works best for the product. This is probably why so few people actually take the time to look at the prices in any detail.

9 of the products were slightly more or less than I originally posted (prices may have changed since then or more likely my math was bad!), but the story is pretty much to same. I left the original difference there and put the new difference and additional comments in (parentheses).

Feel free to go to www.peapod.com because it is a great place to compare prices. Iím one of the few lucky ones who can actually get Milk, Fruit, Meat, Veggies, and everything delivered right to my door! They serve my area here in Northern Virginia.

Well, I hope you find this information useful. Let me know if you have any comments.

Regards,

John
