It depends really. Is the sale worth it? Is the price worth it? Do I REALLY NEED IT?

Sales don't really tempt me........but I'm prone to impulse shopping if I"m hungry, tired, bored, or if I'm feeling down. Mostly I get snacks, or a new game or craft supplies to play with to try to cheer myself up. I really need to find a new hobby besides eating! I have two boxes of See's candy here, and I haven't had breakfast yet and I've already had 3 pieces! Gotta get ready for work (darn it) so I have to stop goofing off and be an adult.....and go have a real breakfast instead of candy!

Only when it has to do with Hatsune Miku or anime an example of this is when I saw a Miku keychain at a local store

Pez dispensers (I have a collection going on -_-) and books. I put them to use though.

When the order qualifies for free shipping



I'm really not that bad but the past few days I've went pretty HAM ordering from Best Buy. You can't beat that free 2 day holiday shipping (Yes the free 2 day for Amazon Prime with subscription is also forever the shit)

this is one of the downsides of online shopping..

unless it's a defective product.. you will be paying a small fee for "change of mind" product.. while brick and mortar stores are offering extended return period until 1/15 - 1-31

with so many sales going on i think most people already got what they wanted already..

so i'm going through the stages of buyer remorse since i can't return a $250 game system.. and with sony keeping the dang price at $250.. some stores even lower $230? i can't sell it back..

That's the benefit of selling on eBay. There is a fee associated, but there are plenty of people willing to pay a premium if something is hard to find--or pay new price if it's hardly used. It's just that using the system isn't for everyone.

i bought stuff from eBay before (just small phone parts) but never sold anything on ebay though..

mostly Craigslist-- but Craigslist has its downsides

when you listed something on Craigslist they think your product is stolen and they will offering low ball offers

but if i have the NES classic.. there's no problem with buying a buyer.. but the item i have is the PS4 slim uncharted 4 bundle.. this thing is available at most retails at deep discounts!.

the only time i might get the chance to sell it is probably after 12/31/2016-- since sony and microsoft are duking it out right now so their bundle will remain at $250 until next year..

I only buy stuff I need.

I need these Saekano figures. I preordered the Megumi one too because I obviously need the complete set.

Why yes, yes I am. It's terrible. I'm an impulse buyer when it comes to baby clothes.

Yes. Which is one of the reasons why I removed my debit card from my Steam account so I can avoid buying the newest game or a key for a csgo case. However the model kits and the Love Live! blind boxes I keep walking out with were planned ahead of time.
