Yeah Amazon is awesome. Any problems I've had with them have been solved quickly. I was even able to exchange a movie that wasn't working that I bought from them a year before!

I love Amazon.

LOVE.

Not just because they are basically paying for the site. Well, you guys are, but you know what I mean.

I use them almost exclusively for online shopping. I'll check around but if Amazon is a few bucks more, I'll use them. Prime is awesome. I order something and it is here two days later. If I need to return something, shipping is free and I can print the label out online.

Amazon Mom - cheapest source of diapers. With twins, very important. BJs is cheaper on the formula we use (Gerber), so we get formula there.

Finally, Kindle books - yummy.

Yes, I love Amazon. It sucks they will soon be charging Mass sales tax but not much I can do on that. Wife and I are considering a move back to NH, which is a sales and income tax free state.

That's one thing I really love about Amazon. Returns are super easy, and they never give you any trouble there...whether you want a replacement or a refund. When I have received defective items, they've almost always overnighted me a replacement.

And, this was awesome of them also recently:

I ordered about 15 new Blu-rays (all Paramount) for $1.00 each when they had a pricing bug that was valid for about 45 minutes. They didn't cancel any of those, they shipped them all. I really wouldn't have blamed them if they would have cancelled them.

I already have the 3-Disc Emerald edition. The film looks fantastic. I wish I could justify buying it again. That new "The Making of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" featurette sounds interesting.

Amazon Prime - borrow a book a month on the Kindle, too. I have to admit there aren't a ton I'm interested in but I usually end up borrowing 3 or 4 a year.

I can't speak highly enough of Amazon. I order a ton of stuff from them, problems are extremely rare, and they are ALWAYS sorted out quickly and conveniently.

I used to order a lot of discs from Deepdiscount and DVD Pacific. But their return/replacement procedures were positively Draconian. No more. I'd rather pay an extra dollar to order from a merchant that values its customers.

I've never sold anything through Amazon. So I can't speak about that. But as a consumer they are by far the best retailer I've ever found. I even order a decent number of grocery items through subscribe and save.

I actually have a very serious complaint- I've tried to watch Amazon On-Demand video stuff and the player is awful. It skips like mad. I tried it on 2 different computers- it was a nightmare both times.

The only problem I had was that my Lord of the Rings blu-ray set had a huge dent in the corner, but that was UPS's fault.

This has been precisely my experience as well, I could not be happier with Amazon.

I've only ever had positive experiences with amazon and amazon uk. EVER. I've had discs with faulty playback, and they've sent me another copy, no questions asked. And they rarely ask me to return the defective disc.

Another Amazon fan here. Prime is the way to go and easily pays itself off over a year's use. I have never had a bad experience with Amazon.

Maybe they don't raise the price because its a loss leader. Myself, I don't pay for Prime becasue I don't see the value. I get free shipping on the few things I buy from Amazon so why pay $80 for something I get for free (I can wait 5 days to receive my items). I also don't find thier streaming library to be near as compelling as Netflix so that doesn't work for me either. It sounds like many of you don't look for better prices at other retailers because you are so enamored with Prime Shipping. And thats the hook. Have people sign up for a cheap 2-day shipping subscription and they won't go anywhere else. Pretty smart.

Just to give my perspective. Last week I bought a 55' Samsung TV and a Yamaha reveiver at Nebraska Furniture Mart for a combined $600 less than Amazon. The week before that I saved $16 on an ASUS router by shopping at Newegg. And I've bought well more than 100 DVDs and Blu-rays over the past few months cheaper than if I was shopping at Amazon. Amazon is great but there are many times where you can do better elsewhere.

Amazon- Blu ray, DVD, CDS, Books - Cant beat their prices on Books and most CDs
ImportCDs-Blu Or DVDs - If I can get cheaper then at Amazon
Go Hastings- Used stuff 99 Cents shipping , no way I am paying $3.99 shipping at Amazon
Deep Discount- not to much anymore
Appliances - Buy locally no way I am buying that stuff on-line
Some of us do shop around.
