I like shopping at Amazon. I usally do alot of shopping around the holidays. I try to start doing my holiday shopping early in the year so i usually shop with them most of the time. I rather do my shopping online, where it can be delivered to me instead of having to fight the crowds.

A very good counter point! Yes, online shopping have the advantage of not going out in the crowd, avoiding the traffic etc.

If I shop at Amazon, I am usually buying textbooks for class. I also try to look at other online sites to see which ones are cheaper. I usually like to shop manually or in person instead of online, especially for clothes. I like to try things on and see how they look on me and I can't do that if shopping online.

You have got a point! It is true that while buying clothes you want to make it sure whether they fit or how they look on you, so shopping in person will be helpful. Happy Mylotting!

I do buy things usually at the stores around town as it is a lot easier and you can try things on and be more comfortable of course. If i do buy things online i usually do look through Amazon to see what their prices are compared to the actual website of clothes i might like and then add in the shopping cost and see which one is cheaper but cuter at the same time. If i don't want to be seen out in public with some stuff like lingerie and what not i buy them online and sometimes through amazon as i am more comfortable with buying those type things online and don't have to be seen buying them out in public as i seem to know many people when i go out.

Yes, as you say you can really check the price and value you get for that. That's the advantage Amazon gives. Well, the second point you mention is really true. Sometimes, to buy somethings one might feel a bit shy or so then buying online will be helpful! Happy Mylotting!

Online shopping is my favorite. I shop on Amazon often as it does have everything that you ever wanted. I usually find the stuff cheaper on amazon and also that they usually offer free shipping.

Yes, Amazon offers a variety of products and at a discount. So one can get a deal of their choice!

Almost never. I have bought maybe one or two books from Amazon. Most of the other stuff I buy is either on eBay or from online retailers. I guess I just never got into Amazon, and eBay has as wide of a selection as anyone out there. I prefer online shopping, although you have to wait for things to ship so that is a drawback. I am not much of a clothes shopper, but I do spend time shopping for sports stuff.

I use amazon alot. I love the fact that I don't have to go to the store to buy gifts and that usually it will ship the next day. I find them very competitive in price and many times get free shipping.

I shop there probably about once a month. I'm always getting Amazon gift cards from some of the paid-to-search & survey sites I'm a member of, and so I kind of have to buy things. It's so nice that Amazon sells all sorts of different things - I can literally find tons and tons of things that I want. Books, DVDs, cell phone accessories, CDs, etc. I love that place!

hardly ever. Ebay is better. especially in the case of books. second hand or first hand, ebay has better prices. also there are other good ebook websites, ebooks are cheaper and instant. so no, amazon is hardly my ideal shop. manual shopping is good too. if i am going to do some online shopping i'd go to the cheapest book website.
