Online shopping, the future?

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:

http://www.become.com/bolero-jacket

http://jewelry-and-watches.become.com/3-carat-diamond-ring

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.

Highly recommended.

I, like a lot of people, have had people close to me in my life taken by cancer. As a result I do all I can to help fund cancer research.

In an effort to help even more, I have added a Widget to the side bar. SocialVibe is a fantastic new way to help raise awareness and research funding without having to give your own money, which means we really don’t have any excuses for not doing our part.

It works by connecting the community with brands who have committed to sponsoring a charity, allowing you to spend your time, instead of giving money, to complete short and often fun activities in order to help fund the research.

If you have a spare minute to spare, please click SocialVibe in the side bar and help me do what I can do continue much needed research.

Hopefully one day there will be a cure.
