I usually buy video games on places like eBay or Amazon because I can often find them cheaper there, or find games that are somewhat rare and are hard to find in stores. I also buy gifts for Christmas and such. Other than that...not much, except for clothing occasionally.

yeah..ebay and amazon are really popular. i guess it is due to their prices as well as being well established in this industry. thank you for sharing.

Today on the Internet I ordered a new baby change mat because the current one is ruined. I was so pleased that second class postage was free with that order. I have just been on a trip to Colombia so yesterday I got round to ordering a copy of the movie called Romance in the Stone. Sometimes I buy vegan food on-line. Twice I have had a bad experience ordering on-line. I ordered a duvet and duvet cover and paid for both but they only sent me the duvet cover. I didn't get anywhere complaining. Another time I ordered two boxes of nut bars and only one box arrived. I won't use that company again. Most of the time buying on-line works out fine.

I buy tons of different things online, really. Everything from clothes, beauty products, cosmetics, gadgets, books and much more. But mostly the stuff I mentioned. I think it is awesome to be able to shop online, I love it!

I often purchase things online. I usually buy CDs and collectibles. The reason for buying them online is that they are not locally available. If those stuff were available lcoally, I would prefer going to the shop than ordering online. On the other hand, I enjoy receiving mails/packages and the wait is exciting.

I buy things online that i know i cant purchase in the store. If i can purchase it in the store then i will go to the store and get it, but things like sports items i will buy online for my dad and boyfriend because there are no sports stores around here that carry the things i have purchased online. On Friday i purchased a pocket watch for my boyfriend for Valentines Day and i hope i have it in time but anyways i couldnt find one that i liked out in the stores anywhere or even one that wasnt very expensive so if i can find something online than cheaper in the store with the shipping price i will purchase online and even save me money and my aggrevation from going to the store. I like buying things online too when i have some discount codes to use and to save my again time from going to the store.

I like to buy things online that are cheaper bought online than in normal shops where I live. Like some small stuff from eBay. Or electronic stuff from my own country's e-shops because I don't have a good electronics shop near me plus there's a bigger variety online :)

yeah...i have this crazy "fear" that someone will get my cc # - even if i am using my paypal account.but i have heard that it is how many people in other countries prefer to buy their stuff since it is cheaper and more convenient. still - i prefer to see it w/ my own two eyes.lol =p
