I like shopping online for some things such as books, for example, but ever clothes or shoes. I have to try those on and don't like losing the postage money if they are not right.
Electronic things I would only buy online if it was a great bargain, as if they go wrong its more of a hassle to send them back.
Generally I only buy online if it's something I can't get in the shops or it's cheaper. I live in a place with good shops though, so don't do if that often.
One pro is the convenience - not having to bother going anywhere, but a con is inconvenience - not actually being therev when it turns up and having to collect it from the post office depot!
I shop online constantly, unless it's something I can find close by. You can usually find it cheaper and often get free shipping, and while I've spent plenty on return shipping sending things back, I think I've saved more by finding the lowest price. Besides, shopping trips take hours if it's far away and my time is extremely valuable. I have a lot of nothing I'd rather be doing.
yes, especially for big electronic stuffs such as laptop and TV. You can try either slickdeals or fatwallet. Usually you will get about 20-25% off from retail store. If I get lucky, I'll get 30-50% off from store.

I love that you don't have to pay full price for anything! Simply do a search on an item or a retailer and you can find coupons to either print or use a discount code during your transaction. You can sign up for daily deals and get email notifications to purchase a great deal.

Although it is much safer to shop online; there is that interaction not only with sales personnel but with other shoppers when it is done within brick and mortar. People seem friendlier and more willing to assist during the holiday season. However, you don’t have to spend money for gas, dress...
