I regularly purchase books and DVD's at Amazon.com. I watch for discounts and free shipping. What do you buy the most? Is there anything you wouldn't buy there? I won't purchase college textbooks, as one order ended up arriving to late for a college class.

Incredible. I've always wondered why amazon is rich. I never know anyone who bought things from there before.

Thanks for the reply. I have been shopping there for many years with the free shipping on some items and discounts can save money. I compare prices from many sites.

Me too. With free shipping, it just makes sense. You can order practically anything, anytime of the day or night. Great for impulse buys, like getting up from a re-run of your favorite show to order the entire 6 seasons in DVD format during a commercial break ;)

I have ordered several television shows at a great discount. The extra clips and bonuses are worth while for many of my favorite shows. Thanks for the reply.

Books. I am an avid crafter/ baker and i love the fact that when i can create a wishlist on amazon. In the comment section of the item i enter the lowest price i've ever seen and then wait for prices to drop on things i can wait on. Unfortunately buying "used/like new" there's no free shipping. I can't think of anything that i wouldn't buy from Amazon, i've bought gadgets, food and jewellry with no problems...maybe if it was live plants or insects...that would be where i'd draw my line

I laughed when reading insects and wouldn't buy them either. Its great to buy so many items in one place. Sorry no free shipping on used and wish there was now.

I haven't bought from Amazon for ages becuase i find that foten they are not the cheapest seller of the items i want, and their p&p is a bit off-putting. They do stock a good range of books though, especially books on more obscure topics. So mainly i buy books from Amazon.

Thanks for the reply. Its important to check prices at several places, as Amazon isn't always the lowest for me. I agree about the unusual hard to find books, as several books I only found at Amazon.

I've bought two sets of hand weights so far. I'm going to check out their book selection and see if I can buy some from there.

I buy books from Amazon. They often have used ones I can buy for cheap, so I appreciate that. I don't really buy anything else through amazon, really. But I often get amazonegift certificates from testspin and like to use them to buy books.

I get Amazon Gift Certificates from a reward site also. Is testspin a great site? This is the first time I have heard of it. Thanks for the reply.

I've bought mostly cd's on Amazon.com. I've also bought dvd's, books, an iPod case and a cell phone case. So far I haven't had any bad luck with anything I've ordered on there.

I am boycotting Amazon right now. There is no reason I can't buy books and CDs and such at Barnes and Noble, or Borders or anywhere else on the net. Did you know Amazon sells magazines and books dedicated to dog fighting and rooster fighting? They stand behind the First Amendment to sell that stuff, but actually, it's illegal in the united states to PROMOTE illegal activities. As a dog owner AND someone who raises chickens, I can't support a company that supports dog and rooster fighting just to make a few bucks. So I'm boycotting Amazon.com and I won't shop there again until they stop selling that garbage!

Some time ago it was really cheap for me to buy books through Amazon. Now the dollar is too high for that. When it was lower I would buy some books and pay for them and for the shipment, but not for the taxes. Now the only problem is the dollar being too high.
