Online shopping is becoming an increasingly easy (and cheap!) way to purchase, with the added benefit of having everything delivered to your door. I purchase quite a bit online myself, usually from eBay or Amazon, but recently someone recommended an online store I had not yet heard about.
http://www.become.com/ is fantastic! It is a complete online store, selling everything from Plasma TVs to baby clothes and all of what you want can be found easily, by clicking one of the useful categories in the left column or by searching something specific using the search bar. However, to me the best part of http://www.become.com/ is that it offers the option of writing a review for a product you may have bought, meaning as a shopper, you get a really good idea about what you are purchasing by reading the reviews.
If you have something in mind for what you might like to purchase, you then have a broad range to choose from, here are just two examples:
I was actually amazed with the jewelry section. I am in the market to buy an engagement ring for my now girlfriend and I did not expect such a range of diamond rings to be available online, prices ranging from a few hundred dollars right up to $42,000!
Even if you don’t want to make an online purchase, this is a great site to do product research. Their search engine provides users with the ability to quickly and efficiently have a look at certain products and get an idea of price too. Also, there are online buying guides available to help you choose the right item for you.
http://www.become.com is fast and easy to register with, their range of products is staggering, I for one am glad I had a look at their site and if this trend continues there is no reason why a lot more people won’t be getting on the online shopping bandwagon in the near future.
