Minnesota Shopping: Amazon - The Lazy Persons Dream for Online Shopping
ENTER is the Key to Happiness
Amazon Has Saved Me Upon Occasion
I love buying things through Amazon. In the past six months, we have purchased a lot of things through the system. Lately, it's been hub bearings and brake pads and seals for our 1999 Ford 250 Turbo Diesel pickup.
We've purchased fun stuff, too. I have purchased many DVD's through Amazon. I have sent for oxygen sensors for my Subaru. I have ordered books, cameras, and let me see, what else.
Actually, Amazon is one of my first check points for purchasing. I'm lazy and the thought of driving to town, some 30 miles away, walking through stores, and perhaps 'not' finding what I'm looking for doesn't always appeal to me.
Amazon Means Money in Pocket
Yes. Amazon means that I don't spend extra time looking for something that I can visually see on my screen. I can click on the image and see what condition it is in. I can read in the description what I need to know, and if the information is not there, I can contact the seller with questions.
As an Affiliate I Look Forward to Sales
I admit, I joined the Amazon program in hopes of making a lot of money. My father in law once said, if you can find one item that everyone wants and is willing to purchase from you, you've got it made.
Well. People need food, clothing, entertainment, car parts, motorcycle parts, books, you name it, they need it, and can get those things - and more - from Amazon.
Yes, sure, it's obvious you can still leave your house and go find those things yourself, but, if you are in no hurry to get them, why rush? And sometimes, you can find things that are perhaps the same price that you'd find them, on sale, in town, and free shipping sometimes, and sometimes, you can find a used item - even better, for an even smaller price.
Options. I love them!
Trust Me - I Love Amazon
I'm not going to try to sell you about Amazon. I'm not going to even try to sell you something from Amazon.
No. In fact, I'm going to tell you to ignore anything that I would try to tell you about Amazon and tell you to see for yourself. Go there. Search for something obscure. Do they have it? In fact, here's your next assignment:
Go to Amazon, right now, and click around and see what they have. If you find a good deal, and you buy it, I want you to come back here and leave a comment. Tell me what you bought and tell me if it was a good deal, or not.
I was looking at Amazon for printer ink the other day. I was actually surprised to find the wine that we use for our pickled fish there, too. And, the wine that I cannot purchase here because of sidewalk drinkers, is available on Amazon.
Amazon is a good thing!
Product Sourcing - A Whole New Old Game
What is product sourcing, I ask? It's the method of providing what people want, in singular units, or in bulk, and a cost effective method so that some viable income can be achieved.
People have been participating in product sourcing for years. We're used to grocery stores, hardware stores, gas stations and whatnot. We are so used to purchasing items that we need from sources that we don't even think about it any more.
A Prize for Participating
Buying on Amazon is almost like being rewarded. You click around and are able to compare prices. I have had multiple screens open while shopping for things that my hubby wants to purchase.
Sometimes we're in a bind. Sometimes you cannot find a store in your area that has things you need in stock. So, then, you've either wasted time calling places only to find that 'we don't have them in stock, but we can order them and they'll be here by Friday, or Saturday or next Tuesday'.
You know the drill. So, when you click to Amazon and, lo and behold, there is your item, new usually, at the price you were expecting to pay, or maybe sometimes less, and it comes right to your home. Yes, my delivery person is now my friend.
Just sign here, and have a nice day, ma'am!
