I LOVE Amazon.com!!!

I just added up what I spent on my Amazon.com purchases, and what it would have been if I paid the list price.

The total that I spent was $73.94. The list price for all of those items add up to $192.92. If I were to buy the same items today, it would be $142.98. I can't believe the great deals they have. One thing I bought was the Leapfrog Fridge Phonics for $7.99 on a lightning deal. It's $14.99 today, but still better than Wal-Mart's price of $19.99!!

I will definitely be doing my shopping there next year

me too!! I got the free trial of amazon prime and have used it a lot!!! A lot of things I bought wouldn't have been such a steal if you had to figure in shipping so since it was free it made it that much better.

Our work adopted a 6 kid family from the Salvation Army. I got a little over $100 worth of stuff for each child for less than $300 total. It was a good feeling.

I have been so pleasantly surprised by the great deals and the fast shipping- I've never shopped online, but this month I have put my paypal account through the wringer on amazon!

Re: I LOVE Amazon.com!!!

So how do you guys find all these great deals? Is it items you were looking at that just happened to go on sale? I have tried searching through their toy section and it's exhausting.

several ways:
this site (people post good deals)
another site called slick deals (has great online deals, and amazon always got posted on there)
I also knew specific toys and would add them to my cart then keep checking the price to see when it dropped.

Bargain hunting is fun!! my mom says i should do all her shopping and she will pay me! Might have to do that next year!

Re: I LOVE Amazon.com!!!

I agree, it can be exhausting, but I was just thinking today about how much I like shopping on Amazon! One X-mas we were in the Caribbean and got free shipping there too. I do like shopping in real stores so I can see the item and the size and quality of it, but more often than not I have been pleasantly surprised by the item when it arrives, so much that some times I wish I would have ordered more of it to give away as presents etc when I buy the items at great prices. On the other hand, sometimes I might buy a lot because they are such great deals, stuff I didn't have "on my list", but the Amazon gc's help offset that .
