Perhaps we should start a thread of bargain websites, that we can add to as we have new finds? It would be easier all in one post, yeah?
I like this idea!

I am so jealous of the on-line grocery shopping option. What I would give to use that!

I've had an unhappy experience or two with eBay sellers, but also over 200 others that were just fine. eBay isn't a store, though, so I just chalk it up to 2 bad transactions out of 200, and I'm probably still doing better than when I purchase something in person from a retail store! My son would likely be nekkid and barefoot without eBay.

I bought from Ebay and got ripped off. They didn't stand behind the purchase and said that it was between the seller and myself. Never again.

Now I only buy from Amazon because they stand behind every purchase even if it is from a third party on Amazon.

I'm the type of person when I buy something, I'd rather pay and walk out of the store with it right away. I don't like to wait for the stuff to be shipped or mailed.

I have bought very few things online, like Norton's Anti-Virus software upgrades and subsciption renewals. I try looking in the stores first, if I can't find it, then I'll order it online.

The last item I bought something from an online vendor was a movie on DVD a little over a year ago, I couldn't find it in stores so I ordered it online.

I bought a car on ebay. I flew out to the town that I bought it in, the guy met me at the airport with the car, we shook hands, I drove home and he took a taxi back to his home.

He was an awesome seller. I was an awesome buyer. I did my part. He did his part. It was a serious and seamless deal. Props to ebay! It's the best car that I've ever owned. I get a lot of compliments on the car.

I am expecting the delivery of my Temper-pedic King size bed any day now. I ordered it online and they gave me two free pillows AND free delivery and set up.

I have been sleeping in the guest room on a VERY uncomfortable twin bed...I am dying to get back in my own room.

I do a lot of my Christmas shopping online and just love it. It saves me so much time. No more hassles at the mall with parking and crazy drivers.
