Where do you like to shop? We go to Wal-Mart all the time. Its so convienant and they have everything we need pretty much. I dont like waiting on things, I'd rather go to a store and buy it. By the time your done with shipping and everything, Wal-mart is cheaper anyway.

You have to shop at legitimate places, I am a jewelry designer so I love to buy alot of my tools from ebay.

Now tools are one thing I will agree with that you can get cheaper on ebay. However, if you have a "Pitsburg Tools" in your area, you can find them much much cheaper than ebay.

I hate Wal-Mart but it is the only store around here. I love to look on Ebay for new things for my kids for Christmas. Sometimes you can get a good deal. I also look online for items on clearance.

Clearance items are good to look for online. I dont see many clearance prices from ebay however. Even buying used stuff you can find cheaper at flea markets or yard sales. Thank you for your reply.

I think with a lot of things, Wal-Mart is cheaper in the end as well. Wal-Mart has really made a huge attempt to compete with online businesses and ebay. I think its great.

Shopping online can be a big hassle and a huge mistake sometimes. It's like a 50-50 chance that you will actually receive your product. Thank you for your reply.

I love Walmart. I have to keep myself away from Ebay because it is so addicting. :) I can go crazy and buy lots of plants but I stay away on purpose. I have more important things to buy. We buy our groceries and everything else at walmart as well. It is so convenient. :)

Yes, another reason not to shop online. I made the mistake once of giving my debit card on an order once and before I knew it over $900.00 was taken out of our account. Even though it was done in a complete different country, my bank wouldnt do anything about it and I had to pay it back.

Walmart, because you can see the items you buy. Also it's much safer because it's a store, not a online store. Ebay, you can get ripped off, scammed, ect. Also in Walmart, you don't have handing and shipping fees. You only have tax which is not a lot. On ebay, I saw something that was 1 cents, and later you find out the shipping fees are like $60!

Yea, those ebayers like to get you in the shipping. You have to watch out for that. I agree with you about Wal-Mart though. Like I said earlier, it's a 50-50 chance that you will even receive your product from ebay sellers.

I think ebay is the best option. Because you can buy anything you want. Lot of stuff you cant even find in walmart. Like a remote control for dish tv, movado watches and antique coins etc. you can wait for right price for right stuff at ebay and get stuff at great price

Yes, I agree with hard to find items and origonal items. They can be very hard to find in stores. Thank you for your reply.

Heres another thing you can find much cheaper online. I dont think stores even sell any of the software they have out anymore. Software is very cheap online, I agree with you 100%.
