laptop computer and credit card for shopping - this person has a credit card in her hand so she can make an online purchase.

I have tried to and I would like to but don't shop on line vrey much. I do a search for the item I am interisted in and there are so many sites to choose from and then I try comparison shop and it starts taking to long. I get in car and go to walmart.

LOL, when I shop online it is usually from a store's site, just so I can avoid going out. I've never been very big on comparison shopping, I know where the good deals are and go for it. I also like the buy online but pick up at the store option, so there are no shipping costs, but they find it for you. Kind of like having a personal shopper!

Yes, I shope online all the time. I shop at ebay, amazon.com and all the other ones. I do not like crowds at all so if it is something that I can get online I am more likely to do that then to go out and have to deal with all these rude people. If I do go to the store to shop, I wait until the middle of the night. There are fewer people out and the ones that are out are not in a hurry and crabby from their day. I have found that when shopping online I feel a lot safer when I can use my paypal account.

I want to since i find alot of attractive stuff on the net or online stores. But i have second thoughts about it because I might not get the perfect size or then the item will turn out not as i expected it. But it sure is a good way for me to look for any item which is hard to find where i am.

I like to shop online to find things that can't be found in stores. Plus, going to the store takes time and gas, so a lot of times I'm lazy and just shop online either way. Plus, shopping online you can help your favorite charity too with sites like this one: www.igive.com/occh (an example of the charity I support when shopping)

Yes I do shop online but that is only for gifts that I need to send for my parents or my daughter in the hostel. It is really convenient and time saving but I sometimes feel that it is costly.

I'd like too, coz it looks cheaper and really interesting. It just scare me because they might not give me the stuff or it has defect and i cant return it anymore. i think its much safer to shop in the mall.

I do shop online a little here & there. Usually when I purchase something online it's because I can't find anything interesting out there in the stores. For example on e-bay I tend to buy warm hoodies/jackets for my dog since the one's I have found in the pet stores.. Are lower quality. I purchase from this one store on e-bay who has high quality hoodies for dogs.. And they are roughly for a good deal I find.. Better than the stores because you get better quality & I find you get more of your moneys worth by purchasing some products online instead of buying at the store within your city.. But that's the reason I mainly turn to online shopping sometimes.. I mean there has been times where I have wanted to buy a season of my favorite television show.. Or one of my favorite movies.. And within the store I find it to be rather expensive.. Then I can go on a place like e-bay & get it for much cheaper.. I'm all about getting more of my moneys worth.. I'd rather look for a better deal then have to settle for the same product that is more expensive.. But when it comes to shopping online you have to be very careful as well.. Because sometimes what they end up saying is misleading or they will lie to you.. And the only way you end up finding that out is when you receive the product.. So sometimes buying from a store within your city is the best way to go because then you at least can see what you are buying right then & there.. Online you have to go with what the picture is showing you.. And as we all know sometimes pictures can be rather deceiving.. So I guess both have there pros, but they also have there cons as well.. Like anything.. So I find I will purchase more items at a store within the city.. But some products I will purchase online on occasion.. It all depends upon what I may be looking for! . .

Internet - Computer
I do shop online. I sometimes buy from ebay and then I have another site I love to go to. but I think going to the store yourself is probably cheaper most of the time..

Most of the time I do my normal shopping at Wal-Mart, since they are cheap and we don't have much money. I do enjoy shopping online though for gifts or hard to find items. Amazon.com is really the only online shopping I do. It's very convenient and you can usually find what you are looking for by doing a simple search! :)
