    Normally

    Normally I love shopping on Amazon.com but the last transaction left me with a webcam that was a piece of **** and a lack of an LCD monitor which I intended to use with my new computer. Lesson learned: keep Amazon for small ticket purchases and avoid the big ones along with the...

    Amazon.com Rules

    Not only that I'm addicted to buying on Amazon, I also sell stuff on Amazon. It's pretty easy and far less complicated than ebay. Not a big fan of PayPal either.

    First Order

    The Recommendations

    I go online to find one thing on it, end up looking through the recommendations and end up ordering a lot more than one thing. I tend to prefer browsing bookshops and dvd stores, however I use amazon when i know i need a specific book or dvd that i am unable to find in...

    Love The Books!

    It's so much cheaper than Hastings! I bought a hardback book of perfumes on amazon for 13 bucks. Went to the bookstore and they wanted to charge me 26 for a paperback version of the same book! Usually paperbacks are suppose to be cheaper!  Our local bookstores charge full...

    I Love Adding Things to My Wish List

    I buy most of my things on amazon because I love how cheap the used books are. I especially like to add things to my wish list which currently has over 500 items on it! I could spend all day adding things if amazon didn't run out of recommendations.

    Dear Amazon: thank you for sending me this T-shirt.It is a pretty awesome T-shirt.However, it isn't the one I ordered... I ordered THAT T-shirt.So now I'm not sure whether to keep the one you sent me, or return it and demand the one I originally wanted.Decisions, decisions.

    Astonishing Amazon

    I am not sure why, but it’s totally creepy to me how I can purchase absolutely anything on Amazon and have it delivered to my home by tomorrow. It’s also incredibly convenient.

    I Go To the Book Store at First

    I usually go to the bookstore to check the book I like to purchase. Then I go to Amazon.com and order it. I do not mind to get the second hand book so sometimes I can buy the book with one tenth price compared to the new book. That is good for me. I like to avoid buying the book...

    Now It's Given Itself a Name

    My Amazon wish list has gotten so completely out of control that it has evolved into some sort of life form. It's constantly demanding that I spend more and more! All the while it grows fatter and hungrier-and where's my bloody Dinosaur JR album?! Damn you Amazon!

    Woohoo

    Amazon is the best place to do your shopping. I’ve been a member for the past five years, I believe. After a certain amount shows up in the cart, you get free shipping and handling. It might take a bit longer but hey, it’s free, right? That’s how I’m...
