I just recently made my first purches online, some DVD's I wanted from the Amazon web sight from 3 different sellers. Got them promptly without a glitch.. However, one of the DVD's was blank.... nothing on it. I don't think it was the sellers fault and when I told them, they are shipping me out another one and told me to just throw this one away.. Waiting to get it now..

The problem I am having is leaving feedback on Amazon.. It keeps telling me I have no purchases left to send feedback on.. It just keeps sending me in circles..

I order numerous items throughout the year, as does my wife, on line from a variety of companies. I have had only two returns: a pair of boots that were ordered and were too small (my fault actually, I forgot that the particular boot company sized small) and when I got 3 items in the same package, only paid for one. The company caught that. Wife has had one bad experience with E-Bay, a broken item that was immediately refunded. It beats going to the mall, or even some local businesses. And you know, the e-companies have a better selection.
My 2007 and 2008 Christmas shopping are also 100% online, zero returns. 2006 was 85 - 90% online.

I do avoid e-bay like the plague, it was good in the early days, but the odds of getting taken advantage of are pretty high now. Too many scammers have learned how to play the system on e-bay.

This Christmas, there were fights in the Best Buy parking lot over Wii's, I got mine with a few clicks sitting in the recliner, and paid the same price since it is a fair trade item.
