    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...

    First Order

    I've only just discovered Amazon.co.uk in the past couple of days but it's rapidly becoming my new favourite website - along with EP of course! I ordered the CD of Jekyll & Hyde:The Musical just yesterday and it arrived promptly early this morning as promised. The reason I...

    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...

    Use It For Books

    I mainly use Amazon for buying books for my degree course as none of the bookshops where I live have them. I find it easier and cheaper to buy them as a Student I can get a discount through the national union for students website. I have also brought books for my mum off of...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Dear Amazon:

    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.

    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!

    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.
