I buy a lot from Amazon, because lets face there are no local stores, it is 80 mile round trip to the closest town big enough to have more then a mom and pop grocery store and a gas station. I tend to go south when I need to shop and that is a 160 mile round trip, the north option is lacking in many types of stores, so needless to say the trip is not a every week or month option. I work north so I pick up groceries there, even though they are a lot more expensive then the south option, but the time and distance make up the difference. Amazon has been wonderful for me, two days and you can get most anything, I recently broke a part on my spinning wheel, l looked around on the net in a search and of all places Amazon had the part and I got it in two days :) . I also order a lot of stuff for the farm from Amazon that is not available even with my two shopping options.

Shopped again on Amazon. Got Leslie Sansone's "Walk It Off in 30 Days" and "You Can Do It" which are Pilates. Going to try the Pilates tomorrow.

I love shopping on Amazon. I get most of the gifts for grandsons there and all my hair care products. I don't care to go to big shopping malls which is quite a ways away for me and I don't want to give my money to Wal-Mart so I do Amazon.

I will shop Amazon from Time to Time but I usually go there to get FREE books for my Kindle Apps (Phone & PC's). Almost everyday I will get an e-mail from kindlebuffet.com that list a bunch of books that are going to be FREE for only a few days.

Yep - all the time. I live in a more rural area and the Prime more than pays for the gas for me to go a couple of times toward Atlanta to actually buy something. I emoticon Amazon!

Yes, I do. I try to buy locally but some things are just not available in my area. All of the experiences I have had really have been good -- no complaints.

Good to know. I, too, shop quite often at Amazon (I have their Visa card so get lots of points) since I have their Kindle. I'll go through the SP website from now own...it brought me directly to my Amazon account. Thanks for this lead...anything to help this website!

amazon is more expensive than buying in the stores.

if you have a problem with the item it's difficult to return and get your money refunded

If so, did you know that the Spark People site will benefit if you do so by going to Amazon via SP? This is a new discovery for me -- all you need to do is click on the "shop" tab above, then click on "stuff we love," and start shopping on Amazon. I do a LOT of shopping on Amazon and will be doing this from now on!
