Since I live in a rural area, Amazon is an extremely convenient addition to my life as I can easily buy stuff without having to drive 12-15 miles away to buy electronics or graphic novels.  With Amazon's Prime membership, which costs $80 a year, it includes free, speedy shipping (only two days from purchase, sometimes sooner) and being able to stream some movies for free on your computer.      However, like what the mighty Madpenguin has said in his review, Amazon isn't …

As an author and independent publisher, Amazon has offered me a world market. While I am saddened by its impact on indy bookstores, and would urge people, whenever possible, to patronize their local after using Amazon for shopping around - I depend on it for global sales.

It is most worth becoming a prime member to receive your purchases in two days.

Although not highly advertised, one of my favorite Amazon features are the "So You Want To" guides.

I admit it, I have a problem...I'm addicted to Amazon.com.  If I'm on my computer, 95% of the time, I'm looking at Amazon, or if I'm not looking at Amazon, I just finished.  I started with books.  I've purchased dozens of books through Amazon.  They have a mind-boggling selection & you can get them for much, much less than at a regular book store (even with shipping costs included).      Another great aspect is the customer reviews.  While not …

If you can't get it on Amazon, chances are that you can't get it.

It's admirable to see that so many people love Amazon.com.  I really enjoy the place.  I showed up to Amazon in September of 2000.  My first review was of a strategy guide.  It's still there.  The horrible paragraph of a review... the type of review I'd later come to hate.  I didn't actually make my first transaction from Amazon until about 2006.  Plenty here have commented on how Amazon is a great place to shop.  And I won't fault them.  It …

Great resource for finding books and more .. I have a merchant account with amazon and post items on my blogs.

Great prices, selection, & shipping, but its members are generally disagreeable, and Amazon does not seem to censor any submitted reviews.

I've been a customer of Amazon's since it opened, and over the last decade it's incredible to see how they've developed. What started as a simple but well-built online bookstore has emerged as the premier destination for practically everything imaginable, yet they've retained the ease-of-use, developed customer communities and practically invented the concept of online consumer reviews.  I realize now that I spent over $2,500 last year on Amazon.com, which doesn't sound like much but covers …

My favorite online place to shop but their review rating system sucks. I find stuff here all the time that I can't live without.

i also like to shop on Amazon but I only look for stuff I need. But Woot is different. There i buy stuff i didn't know I needed. So i check woot.com every day. Most of the offerings are not for me but there are some amazing deals. I just wish they would do away with the goofy BS and go right to the product description.

Amazon 1
Being both an avid reader and record collector I have been doing business with Amazon.com  since I got my very first computer back in 1997.   I have always found the product selection to be second to none, the prices to be reasonable and the service first-rate.  What's not to like?   While I still do enjoy shopping at brick and mortar stores like Borders and Barnes & Noble I find that more often than not I purchase my books and CD's from Amazon.  Even …

My one stop shop for all my Blu-ray and electronic needs, Amazon has great deals and the best prices!
review by . February 17, 2009
Amazon is the online giant that has spawned a number of imitators.....but none are equal to the original. It started as a gleam in a man's eye, Jeff Bezos, to create an online bookstore. Well, that was 1994 and fifteen years later Amazon is the world's largest online retailer crushing all competitors under an iron fist that nets more than 20 billion annually. Amazon is the iconic company of the Internet age and one of the few to survive its turmoil. Under a strong business model and dedicated employees …

Homage to @arichards    Why shop at Amazon.com you ask?  It makes shopping for gifts, so easy and fast.  Based in New York with cheap shipping that's short  No tax you will pay, free shipping:  2-days.  As a man who hates lines, the mall makes me whine.  I'd rather rest easy and have UPS bring me  the gifts I buy gladly for my friends and family.    Lots of reviews to help you figure what's good  You'l …

Like the title says, Amazon is like an online mall. I've ordered everything from vitamins to japanese mangas from them before. In fact, I don't buy anything I don't need immediately from retail stores anymore. I've avoided all the best buys, targets, walmarts, etc. I love the convenience of just searching for it and have the item with descriptions and reviews pop up right in front of me. If I decide to purchase the item, I just click on the checkout button and pay with my credit card. Just wait …
