11 Reasons Why We Love Amazon

Credit: NY Times

As its name implies, Amazon is a winding, veritable jungle chock-full of fabulous finds and steep discounts. Seriously. From hard-to-find makeup must-haves to designer duds, home necessities or the perfect gift for mom, dad, sister or lover, Amazon is practically sacred ground for shopaholics.

In no particular order, here are 11 reasons why we can spend hours (and hours and hours) browsing Amazon:



11 Reasons Why We Love Amazon

1. Super-Fast Shipping
We’ve all procrastinated on buying a gift for an event or a dress for an upcoming vacation. Amazon offers super-fast shipping options and, if you have Amazon Prime, upgraded fast-track shipping is free for many purchases. So you need a pair of red pumps for this weekend’s party? Order on Wednesday and they’ll be at your door by Friday.

2. Customer Reviews
Knowing what other people think of the product you’re about to buy is priceless information. Amazon’s star rating system and candid reviews always come in handy when making purchases, be they big-ticket items or super-cheap products.

    Wendy,

    There are probably 50+ things that I like about Amazon, but I know that “11” is a good number for this article title, and requires less writing :)

    I agree with your first mention of “fast shopping.” Amazon is blazing fast considering all the content they have on their website. When I was looking at some new denim selections, a boatload of “similar” jeans shows up but the page loaded in a millisecond, and I was out of the office on my iPad. Next, although I am a busy person with work and family, I do take the time to read customer reviews on Amazon. You are right on the money when you say Amazon’s star ratings are “priceless.”

    Most customers who take the time to post reviews on Amazon are passionate about the product(s) they purchase through the site, and the well-written and intelligent reviews – either positive or negative – often help formulate my buying decisions.

    Thanks for an informative post on The Budget Fashionista… !
