$35 minimum for free shipping. That's why.

Is it because you have a high budget?

That gun you have looks expensive.


It is, but it also was a gift. But for high priced items I save significantly ahead of time. My amazon issues are usually a bunch of "nickel and dime" items.

Then, you have nothing to worry about.

It'll be more disturbing if you borrow money and spend them for your shopping habits.


It's like you know you don't have any money but since you're having expected guests spending a day or two in your place you do all you can to look good that you have to borrow money more than you can payback.

I wish I had money in the first place to waste on sites like Amazon. If I had the money though I'd probably be on Ebay more

Because we NEED all the stuff we come across on Amazon. The things are a necessity.

Yeah that isn't going to happen to me, I was raised with respect to money and believe in more than the almighty dollar. Sadly it's stuff like that that's destroying this country (US.)

I'm addicted to shopping in general. Although online shopping has the stuff I want the most. I believe I'm addicted to shopping because of how I was raised really. My parents seldom praised or encouraged me with words, I just got stuff instead and that was it.

I used to shop online more often, but the shipping options have made it more difficult for me. They used to use U.S. Postal service to ship, and that was my preferred choice, even though, sometimes it cost more, because they delivered it to my mail box, or held it at the post office if I wasn't at home. With UPS, FEDEX, etc, they sometimes leave it at my door step, or sign it over to my neighbor, whom I don't know that well. They risk my packages getting stolen, and leave me in the position that I'd have to prove it was stolen to get a replacement or a refund.

So, I pretty much have given up on online ordering. I mean. I still order online, but not anywhere as near as much as I used to. If they brought back U.S. Postal Service as a shipping choice, I'd get right back to ordering as much as I did before.

I've never actually bought anything from Amazon before. I dislike their business practices.

Same for me here, I would have to drive 1 1/2 hr to get to the nearest small town and 4 1/2hrs to get to the nearest city with actual stores and malls (I don't know the exact mileage but its around 300) I end up doing most my shopping online usually through ebay and sometimes amazon. I buy nearly everything but food online and if I do go to a store the cost is several times higher than buying online and paying shipping O_o.

I go through phases when I need to buy lots of stuff (household item, car parts, ect) and get depressed when I stop getting packages in the mail which is the funnest part.
