Amazon.com Launches Its Own Brand

Amazon.com has announced its own house brand of electronics. The new brand, called "AmazonBasics," is, according to the giant Internet retailer, a new private-label collection of consumer electronic "basics" created for customers who want "exceptional value."

In other words, basic low-priced electronics goods, which for now appears to be limited to blank media such as blank DVDs or CDs, and cables. The selection for now is extremely limited, but one nice perk for green buyers is that all AmazonBasics products will come in Amazon's Frustration-Free packaging.

Although, as I said, the selection is limited for now, expect Amazon.com to expand its private label items, perhaps even past electronics. AmazonBasics could become the "Kirkland" (Costco's house brand) of Amazon.com.



In North America, sales of non-books/music/movies have been surpassed by the sales of other products on Amazon.com's site. By later this year, the same thing should happen on a worldwide basis. To be honest, we buy almost all our non-grocery goods from Amazon.com (including diapers). It's convenient, quick, and they have a great return policy.

Now if they can just keep states from jumping on the Amazon tax bandwagon started by New York.

Dear Amazon,

I checked all over your website but could not find an answer to this question: Are these "exceptional value" products manufactured in the same building as Kathy Lee Gifford's clothing?

Hugs,

We'll have to wait until someone actually buys one of these "incredible deals" and lets us know what the "AmazonBasics" sticker on the package covers. My guess is some Chinese offbrand. "To glory of the recordist, slot CD disk in associated cranny of accountant's work-place! Very much OK!"
