I buy a lot of stuff online at Amazon. From cleanser and stainless steel pot scrubbers to lamps and furniture. Most of the time the transactions are easy, smooth and delivery is usually within two days. Once in a while I've had problems with the product. I even had a lamp that I didn't open until after 30 days return limit and they STILL sent out a replacement and took the new one back. I can't say enough about Amazon. After having horrible trouble with another website, I've vowed to stick with Amazon for most of my online purchases. I can't express how great they are at returns and making it just easy and hassle-free to do business. "Problems" are no problem at all. And I get movies and TV shows with Prime, also... some are free. Can't beat it.
This company is one huge scam and rip off. I ordered a framed poster last month and it was a piece of garbage reproduction. Horrible beyond words. I returned it over three weeks ago and have yet to hear anything from these crooks or to have my money refunded. Stay far away from these people... seems like a site that deals in crap and it's hard to get any customer satisfaction once they have your money!

UPDATE: okay, it was three weeks since returning the item when I wrote this review. I got an email from them saying "oh, we're sorry... blah, blah, blah..." Told me it would be 14-21 days to get my refund. That will make it almost 6 weeks! WORST online experience ever. I do a LOT of shopping online, even for simple household items, and I will never go back here. Read how many customer service complaints there are. That should tell you something.

Hi Gary, we are sorry to hear that your recent order did not meet your expectations. One of our Customer Support agents will be in contact with you shortly regarding this order. Thank you.
I have Amazon prime and I buy a lot of stuff here. From one of a kind items to my everyday things like cleanser and coffee. Without a doubt, the best online service. When there's a problem, there's no problem. They make it right fast. They back up what they sell. Exchanges, returns are no problem. Even free video rentals for prime members. Love this site!
I have bought a lot of shoes from these guys over the years and they always deliver quickly and exchanges are no hassle, no problem. They may charge a little extra, but it's so worth the few dollars more! I bought a pair of shoes on some other site and they didn't fit but it cost me $26 to return them! Not with Zappos... these people know how to run an online store.
In past years I bought a few things from Overstock that were 'ok' quality. Some lamps and chairs for guest rooms that don't get used too often. Not bad. Adequate. But lately, I've had to return a couple things that were not worth the money. And worse yet, they weren't the same quality items as were pictured. Word of warning... there seems to be some "bait and switch" going on with the sellers on Overstock. They picture a higher quality item online but when you get it you realize that it's a much inferior item that is shipped to you than what is pictured. I experienced this while in Bali years ago. They show you a beautiful piece and then when you agree to buy it, they take it away and "wrap it"... but what they're doing is wrapping a less quality item that you don't realize until much too late. I think some of the sellers on Overstock are doing the same thing.
It's always an adventure going to Costco. But you have to be in a good frame of mind when you go there. If you're not in the mood to deal with some crowds, then better not go. But it's amazing how they can get so many huge carts full of stuff through the checkouts so quickly! They really do a great job of hustling and making it easy. Great meats, too. One of the few places I've seen that actually carries "Prime" grade meats. Returns are quick and painless, too. Love this place!
If you go online you can find plenty of sites where people say that Yelp tries to extort them with threats of bad reviews and promises of putting the good reviews up at the top, if they pay more money per month. Well, my son was the head chef at a restaurant in Ojai and he was constantly contacted by Yelp to pay a monthly fee (I think it was about $500) and for that they would either eliminate the bad reviews or put them at the bottom. They are basically extortionists and liars, cheats and frauds. How can you take their 'reviews' seriously when they do that sort of stuff? I don't ever use their site any more.
For some reason, I had the impression that Kohl's was a discount type store. I bought a pair of Levi's there and found out that I paid way more than I could have gotten online. I also bought a navy blazer there with one of their store brand names attached to it. It was horrible quality and I returned it... again finding a much nicer, Ralph Lauren jacket for about the same price. I don't even go into this store any more. Check out prices of things in store and then online.
I had Netfix way back when they sent you DVDs in the mail. When you could rent current movies. Now, I have TWICE signed up and quit my membership within the first month because I can't find anything to watch! If there are any movies that you've even heard of, they're all ten years or older. Nothing current. Biggest waste of money. Amazon prime offers better. I bought a Roku and that offers a lot more options, (including Netflix). I'm not sure what happened a while back with these people but they can't seem to offer any real decent movies. I wouldn't waste my time if you're looking for current entertainment.
I bought a kitchen cabinet/wine storage piece from these crooks because it seemed like a decent deal. It was an online purchase and when I went to check out, AFTER it had already been sent, then I see, for the first time, that they added a "delivery" charge to the item... and that was on top of a "shipping" charge. Maybe I didn't pay attention in fourth grade, but I thought that 'shipping' and 'delivery' sort of mean the same thing. After the tax and shipping and 'delivery' charges, the item that seemed like a decent deal was more than what I would have paid for it. But all the charges didn't show until AFTER the 'purchase' button is pushed. I don't shop there now. I could have bought a hand made, quarter sawn oak cabinet for about the same price as this particle board, veneered over-priced piece. It's nice, but not worth the price. And they keep the total hidden online until after you press the 'purchase' button. TWO delivery charges?

Amazon wants you to think that they are such a helpful company. When all they are is money hungry...
