    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.

    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.

    Working Odd Hours

    I love shopping on Amazon. They have absolutely everything you can imagine, plus reviews and free shipping. For now they are still tax free in this state, but that will be changing soon enough. I work odd hours. Most places don't open until nine or ten in the morning. By...

    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...

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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...
