Are you waiting for any online orders to arrive?

I use my myLot earnings to shop on eBay, most of the time. Since it's the Christmas season around the corner I have a lot of shopping to do lately. I am the true bargain hunter, I prefer price over quality. I tingle inside when I get a good deal. Here's a list of all the things I am waiting for arrival in the mail that I got from eBay. Smiley face shoelaces Real Rabbit foot 2 hemp bracelets, one for each brother, for Christmas A skinny tie with peace signs on it and I'm still bidding on A bag shaped like Shaun the Sheep Bat shaped earrings for my friend for Christmas Hey, I know it looks like I'm mostly Christmas shopping for myself, but everything else already came! That's right, I'm finished early! What with the bad economy in the USA and all, it's probably a good idea to try to get some Christmas shopping online and on eBay especially. Are you doing any? If you haven't started yet, better start now, even though we have hardly finished eating the Halloween candy!

I prefer not to shop on ebay for Christmas gifts. I have had some bad experiences with them. I do have 2 orders that I am waiting for from Amazon. One is an exercise DVD that my neice wanted for Christmas and another is a book for my father in law. I am also waiting for an order of Curtains that I made from Pennys. These are just for my house to spruce it up for the holidays.

Amazon does seem to have a lot of great stuff, but they don't take Paypal, right? That's the only reason I could not buy anything from them.

I'm not really sure if they take paypal or not. I have my credit card on my account with them so I can check out very quickly.

I have had a bad experience with ebay,from now onwards I will never shop with ebay,I ordered something and it did not arrive for about a month and just a few days back I received an email from ebay and they told me that the user from whom I bought the item had been removed from ebay.I hope you don't have such an experience but my advice to you will be to buy from online stores rather than auction sites.

I haven't had any bad experiences with eBay, but it is best to always check a user's feedback first, and if they do not have a few good feedback comments there already, I would guess to not spend more than you are willing to lose.

I haven't started shopping yet but I'm not worried I only have two people to buy for so shopping for them is fairly easy and not very time consuming either. But, I do like a good bargain on Ebay, so I might go shopping on there too

Online shopping scares me a bit because so many are scams or worse, they send you the items but it is not the same as they claim it.

I will not be shopping for gift online this Christmas. Will probably have to be creative about such stuff, considering our current financial situation. However, I am waiting for some books I've purchased from Amazon, having won a $100 Amazon gift card from PCH. So in a way, I got an early Christmas present. It was funny, when I was shopping on amazon.com, thinking how I'm going to spend the gift card, I have a hard time choosing. I ended up getting books, since I'm a reader. Half of the order had already arrived, the rest is on their way.

I'm not waiting on anything right now actually however I probably will go online to order gifts for family and friends. Last year, most of my shopping was done online and that helped me out tremdously. I found excellent deals on the items that I bought (even getting some things free!) and I didn't have to go out and fight people in the stores to get items. It was nice. I think during Thanksgiving break I'm going to start looking online to see what I can find and then try to order things then.

Hello there Sheepie. I have placed my first online order ever just a few days back on amazon.com I ordered a Disney DVD "Little mermaid" platinum edition because it is not available anymore on the Disney US or UK sites and they don't ship to Romania anyway so i found this site to make my dreams come true - actually my girlfriend's dream, as this is the birthday gift for her 21st anniversary. She will get it close to Christmas though as i promised her to receive it faster (her birthday is on 21st of January) because we will avoid the exam session this way. She needs not worry because i have a separate present for Christmas already packed in a box - it only needs to be wrapped up and it's ready :D

i dont shop online and i shop it outside in the city and i prefer to do it outside as i will be able to see many things and i have so many choices and if i have something particular in my mind i can have a look on it, i can even try out things which i would like to purchase and all this cant happen if i want to shop online and so i prefer to by it outside. i havent purchased anything online and i really have a doubt whether things they provide online is really good or not and they tell its news and it is really new or not and all this will stop me from buying online but i am thinking of trying it once to shop something online and i have only once used my online earnings to charge the website from where i can make calls to my place and that is recently i have tried it.

I've started, and I've gotten most of the gifts I need. I really only need my two kids and husband and I usually wait, since they always change their minds about what they want. I've also gotten some great things on Ioffer, ebay and Amazon where I've been able to use some gift certificates I've earned from surveys. My Christmas village is on display and this weekend I'll be working on the tree. I've seen a lot of people rushing to get everything done earlier this year, even the retailers seem to be slashing prices a lot earlier. So it looks like this Black Friday I'll be sleeping in instead of standing in line somewhere. It also gives me a lot of extra time to enjoy the holidays instead of feeling that stress that sometimes gets to me. Have a great one!

I have one thing I'm waiting on to arrive in the next week from an online order. Other than that if I don't have time to shop in the stores in the next week or two then I'll be ordering online again.

Yeah... I am waiting for stuffs I bought from e-bay. He is a powerseller, I supposed the products would be arrived anytime in this week. I hope it is not a scam, I spent more than US$ 50 there. It means 5 months mylotting for me LOL. I bought from a wholesaler, I want to sell the stuffs again here in my country because the price of the same products is worth 5 times I bought in e-bay from the wholesaler.

I have ordered some jewellery for my sister's marriage gift from an online shopping site, but it has still not arrived, but hope it may arrive in a day or two. The good thing is that I have not paid for it yet, because it is a Cash on Delivery (COD) item, so if it does not arrive then I will not have to pay. But, still I need it because it is a good marriage gift.
