Hey, Well I don't really shop around on the Internet that often, because I don't have a credit card and I can't really shop. I still prefer going to the actual mall where they still accept cash as the form of payment, I hardly ever shop online. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I like doing both. hehe. I like to go shopping from store to store to compare prices on a particular item I am interested in purchasing. But I do some online shopping because the prices are better and the convenience of being at home saves time.

I actually enjoy both methods of shopping, the mall and the internet. If I am purchasing a gift for someone that lives far away and I would have to mail the gift after receiving it, then I will use the internet to purchase the gift and have it shipped directly to the reciever. However, if I am buying clothes for myself, most times I will travel to the mall so that I can get the right fit, doing away with having to ship the item back. Both methods serve me well.

I personally prefer to do my shopping at the mall or department stores rather than online. I have had my bank card information stolen once before by online purchases so I refuse to go through that again.

i dont prefer shopping much on net as I dont feel online shopping is safe and there is a threat of spammers all the time. I prefer to go to mals and shop safely.

I prefer to shop the traditional way. In fact most of my shopping is going through the mall and seeing the product first before buying it. I do have my share of purchasing online. In fact, I do it once or twice month. The items that I buy are usually those that I cannot find in our area. Usually training books, training equipments for my safety training program. Other than that, I do my buying the traditional way.

It depends on what I am buying. If I am looking to buy a new DVD I generally shop online as there is a greater choice than if I went to a mall or down the high street. The same for presents, I generally try to shop online for these, especially Christmas ones as there is a greater selection. But generally for everyday stuff such as food, clothes, toiletries I much prefer to go shopping and browse through stuff so I get a better sense of what I am buying. I've found with stuff like these it's a bit of a lottery to the quality of them when brought online.

hello virusxtreme24, For me, I prefer shopping on the mall than using the internet. Sure it's much convenient doing it through internet but I like to see the actual. Besides I can check if there is a damage on it already. Can even try if it is really working effectively - electronics. Can even ask how to use it properly incase the direction is not that clear in the catalog. So with the clothes, can try and see if it looks good to me. Can even see the other styles and do the same.
