Really? I love it- much better than shopping in stores with rude, smelly people bumping into me. I don't like that at all.

If it weren't for online shopping I wouldn't have 1/2 the software I have, only 5 DVDs (instead of about 200), no computer...



Of course if I had stores that would say, carry stuff, I might be more likely to buy stuff in stores

I like it. You can find things online that you can't find in stores.. like out of print books, certain vegan foods, pants that fit without the hassle of looking through tons that don't fit... etc etc.

I LOVE it! Minus the shipping fees, but sometimes even those aren't bad.

I love it. It helps me to find all the supplements I need without having to drive to several different stores. It also makes christmas shopping less of a hassle.

I shop online almost everyday! I can get things from 30-70% off this way. We get everything we can online, even our engagement diamond, we saved about $10 grand according to what we had it appraised for after we got it. Picking it up at the FedEx was a little scary for my husband... Other things we get: books, software, TVs, art, life insurance, spouse (hehe, match.com), doggie, lamps, computers/monitors, dvd/cds, and tons more... Also, if we don't actually buy it online, we research it or pick it out online at least.

I voted for "like it," but that doesn't mean that all of my experiences have been positive. For example, as far as clothing goes, it's hard to tell what the material will feel like when you can only view it. The best part of it is you can buy season clothing (such as swimsuits, coats) anytime of the year, and most likely on sale, if you plan it right!



My favorite is jcrew.com. They usually have good material for their clothing. Watch out for the dry-clean only wool sweaters, though.

DeepDiscountDVD owns me.

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

I voted love it. I'm with flower on the rude people and crowd things. I hate shopping, so doing it online is good for me. Also, this past summer I was looking to replace a pair of my columbia swim shorts (for women) and nobody had them! I couldn't find anything like that in womens sizes, only skimppy little bikinis. I gave up and the first time I tried searching on the web, I found a pair!

I love it. Actually, most of the time I just go in, check out all the cool stuff and then leave. I like the anonymity of it all.

But actually, I hate not being able to see the products properly and extar shipping costs and all the other crappy things about online shopping.



So I guess I am undecided.

I like it. It makes it so that I don't have to go to the mall...plus you can get great discounts. Actually, I just got some clothes really inexpensively from the Victoria's Secret website.

I like it, and rarely does the shipping exceed what the sales taxes would have been had I gone to town.



My mail carrier is getting a little surly, but that's just too bad. Carrying packages to my door is his job.

I love their clearance! I can get lingerie for less there than at cheap stores around here. It's great! And Fredericks has some great sales on non-leather shoes.

Most of the catalogue places have great on-line sales: Spiegel, Coldwater Creek, etc.

I love buying online. I have done it for years. I hate crowds, and seems the only store I really go into on a regular basis is the grocery store.



Check out luna bars on amazon. I got 60 bars for 50 bux
