    Use It For Books

    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.

    Believer

    At first I was a bit skeptical about online shopping. I always preferred to physically pick up my item & have it the same day. But then I got my first debit card, & I never looked back. It's great knowing that if the store doesn't have something locally, it is mmost likely...

    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...

    That's All I Do.

    I buy from Amazon at least once per week.  I love the free super shipper saving thing they got going on...  I am about to drop another $55 on products I desperately need.  I still haven't done Christmas shopping yet, though, for the rest of my family.  Oh...

    Yeah...do a fair bit on there. Since having my daughter I'm a bit restricted in where and when I can go out and shop. The internet, and sites like Amazon, help with that.

    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.

    Working Odd Hours

    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.

    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...

    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...
