I have not been an online shopper except when I have received gift cards to Barnes and Nobels for my books, and once I got a Visa gift card and bought some perfume once off of Overstock.com. I am considering purchasing a couple visa gift cards with my online earnings (not very much --we are on a very tight budget) for my christmas shopping this year. I started to think about this since the Holidays will be here soon, and I cant really afford to go to different stores around here and get unique gifts for my family, so I thought since I have been trying to earn online this year, maybe I will do some shopping this year for christmas, hopefully get some unique gifts --and earn points as well since I am with Mypoints-- why not!! So if you are an online shopper --what is your favorite place to shop?

Definitely Amazon and Overstock. I love the free shipping at Amazon for orders over $25 and the shipping cost at Overstock is minimal ($2.95). I often look for free shipping codes as well on both sites. You can get anything on both sites. If you don't find anything, just buy their giftcards. MyPoints have both Amazon and Overstock gift cards as rewards. Happy shopping.

I like shopping on Amazon.com and Ebay. I usually compare the prices of items on both of these online stores. They are usually cheaper than other online stores. I also shop on Victoria'sSecret.com cause they provide coupons online that you can not use in VS stores.

I know I buy Avon online for the same reason. It is nice to get the points and I can add my reps. phone number and she still gets credit. I buy from the stores off of mypoints or memolink but look for the best price of what I am looking for.

I haven't actually tried online shopping except for plane tickets when my family travels. I know of some friends with scary stories about online shopping who felt they were scammed (defective item, amount debited from the credit card was more than the price of the item bought, etc.). So I'd stick to traditional shopping. Yes, the holiday season is fast approaching and it is beginning to put pressure on my shopping plans and budget.

so far I have only order books online and that has gone well for me... but I have never really done any shopping online. I might try it this holiday season just to give it a try but it will depend on what I find and what I can afford!! thanks for the response and have a great day!

I do a bit of it but usually it's for craft supplies and I get most of them at oh my crafts dot com. They run incredible sales...after that site it's usually ebay for something specific....other then that not alot of shopping online.
