These are a few of my favourite online shopping sites. Ever since I bought my
first book from
a few years ago, I've been a big fan of online shopping. It's sooo much
easier than trawling round town with several heavy carrier bags cutting off the circulation
to your fingers!
|Top of the list, without any doubt, has to be Amazon. I've lost count of the
number of items I've bought from then over the last five years or so. They're
always very competitive on price, and at the moment they're offering free delivery on orders
over £19.00. You can quite often get the stuff delivered next day, so it's almost as quick as
going down the shops, and so much less hassle. I seldom buy books anywhere else these days, and
I've also used them for CDs, DVDs, memory cards, computer games - you name it.
|This one was a brilliant find! They give you cash rebates for online shopping
with a variety of well-know brands. So far I've been getting cash-back on purchases I
would have made anyway eg from WHSmith (4%), Tesco (1%), Argos (2%), Boden (4%) and
the Early Learning Centre (2%). You can download a cookie that detects when you
visit an affiliated site, so you don't have to worry about missing out. Well
worth a try :-)
|Dell should need no introduction, of course, being pretty much
top of the heap when it comes to PC's. My main area of interest is laptops, and
I reckon they can't be beaten. Performance is usually blistering, but to me the
biggest selling point is the screen - they're one of the few that can support
1600x1200 res, with high contrast and wide viewing angle.
|Dell Outlet offers great prices on refurbished PC's and laptops.
They disassemble and rebuild returned systems to original factory specifications,
and put them through a rigorous testing program to ensure quality. Apparently
they even use brand new boxes for packaging! The resulting systems include the
same limited warranty as new systems, so you pretty much get the same deal at a
much lower cost.
