For a while, it was 2-5 times a month for me.


What about you?

Depends ... before holidays few times in the row, then maybe every 2 months.
I usually bundle to save on shipping. I also buy stuff from other sources.

I used to shop there quite a lot. Back when times were better and we had money rolling in all the time. Now I buy something maybe once or twice a year, usually books, sometimes hard to find food items. I save up my amazon gift certificates i earn from sites and use them all at once, around $50 or so.

"How often do you buy items from Amazon.com ? "

Whenever I need something, IF they have it cheaper than I can get locally.

Most non-food/non clothing items not available at Costco. Several times a month, more before Christmas. This year I think 90% of our family gifts came from Amazon.

The only complaint I hear about them is not being able to see and touch the products ahead of time, so look for them to open display centers with tablets to order in the near future. That's likely to finish off several brick and mortar retailer competitors. While it will add to the numbers of unemployed retail sales people, it will add jobs in warehousing and shipping which pay the same or more.

Usually twice a month. Have Amazon prime so I love the free two day shipping.

This covers it for me also.

Why waste time and gas money running around shopping for hard goods when Amazon ,or some other net supplier, can get it to you in less time and for less money???

I do not enjoy the "shop 'till you drop" mentality so common in our society today.

I am an Amazon addict. I like finding exactly what I want, and having it sent to me. Especially books.
