Its like an online Mall without the crowd and hard to find parking

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 a few days and voila, right in front of my doorsteps. But the best part about amazon is that the shipping's usually free(if you spend over 25 dollars) and there's no tax. I'm tired of paying taxes to the damn California government. As if they haven't taxed my income enough, they feel they need to milk me for another 8.25% (And I hear they're jacking that up again!!!). So glad there's online shops like amazon out there that I can use to avoid this stupid sales tax. Makes me feel like I'm giving the government the finger. But anyways, I love amazon just cause of convenience and free shipping/no tax. The only problem I have with amazon is that not all their items have free shipping and you have to spend up to 25.00 when there is. But thats still better than 99% of the other sites and 100% of any stores in CA.

So as long as Amazon doesn't build a distribution center in CA, I highly recommend everyone to buy from them. SCREW TAXES!!!

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 …

About this website

Wiki


Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQAMZN) is a US-based multinational electronic commerce company. Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, it is America's largest online retailer, with nearly three times the Internet sales revenue of the runner up, Staples, Inc., as of January 2010.

Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com, Inc. in 1994 and launched it online in 1995. The company was originally named Cadabra, Inc., but the name was changed when it was discovered that people sometimes heard the name as "Cadaver." The name Amazon.com was chosen because the Amazon River is the largest river in the world, and so the name suggests large size, and also in part because it starts with 'A' and therefore would show up near the beginning of alphabetical lists. Amazon.com started as an online bookstore, but soon diversified, selling DVDs, CDs, MP3 downloads, computer software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, and toys. Amazon has established separate websites in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and China. It also provides international shipping to certain countries for some of its products.

In 2010, Amazon's decision to remove Wikileaks from their servers resulted in numerous calls to boycott the company, with many people particularly incensed that Amazon then went on to sell copies of the Wikileaks material, despite using this material as its reason for removing Wikileaks
