I am a comparison shopper and have made many purchases through Amazon and will definitely continue to do so. What you will find here are not always the absolute best prices but they often are. In addition to what they offer, Amazon provides links to other vendors who market comparable products.
The service is great, delivery is as fast or faster than with many on-line vendors. Orders are complete with very few exceptions and customer service is outstanding.
I often use ebay to find great deals but before making a bid will first look up the product at Amazon to see if I am truly getting a great deal! The other thing I do at Amazon is to go through every review on items I am considering to buy from any source to make an informed decision. The reviews are honest responses from both satisfied and dis-satisfied buyers who have previously purchased i am considering. They allow reviews from individuals who have purchased the same product from competitors as well which provides me with unbiased opinions and they accept all cmments - good, bad or indifferent.
Amazon also provides free shipping with minimum purchases as low as $25 or $30 and provides links to track shipments so I will know in advance exactly when to expect my order. I could not be more pleased
What product did you purchase or try to purchase? Various appliances, toys etc.
