11 Reasons Why We Love Amazon

9. They Care About the Environment
Amazon makes it a goal to reduce their environmental impact. For example, the majority of Amazon orders are shipped in corrugated containers that contain 43 percent recycled materials and are 100 percent recyclable. In addition, Amazon uses “frustration-free” packaging. That means no hard plastic “clamshell” cases or plastic-coated wire ties, and a lot less–if any–tape.

10. Subscribe & Save Options
Ever run out of mascara, olive oil, coffee or feminine products? Amazon’s subscribe & save option sends you those very products–and many others–once every month, two months, six or whatever frequency you desire. And if it isn’t enough for them to take the weight of remembering off your shoulders, they offer this service at a discounted price.

11. Makes Gifting Easy
Amazon is the place to go when shopping for gifts. For one thing, lots of couples register at Amazon for weddings and baby showers. Also, because it’s such a diverse marketplace, you’ll be able to find everything for everyone, including grills for dad, toys for your niece, spa products for mom and everything in between. Oh, and when in doubt, an Amazon gift card is always accepted with open arms.

    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… !
