Advantages: Free super saver delivery, fast dispatch time, huge variety
Disadvantages: Doesn't do large kitchen items, sofas etc
Amazon.co.uk is fast becoming one of my favourite online shops, partly this is because i lot of the survey/review sites i utilises offer Amazon gift vouchers as incentives (please don't change Dooyoo!) but also because the product range they sell seems to always be expanding.
If you want it you can probably find it at Amazon, they sell toys, books, DVDs, CDs (also they have just started MP3 downloads )to bedding,towels,cutlery and cleaning products. If you hunt around the site you can find loads of things you didn't realise that Amazon sold!
My second favourite thing about Amazon is that they now also sell for other store, i have just brought a pair of trainers from Schuh but via Amazon using gift vouchers so only paid £4.95 postage and it was delivered today directly from Schuh signed for delivery.
So if Amazon don't sell it they probably have a shop seller on there that does.
You can also buy items and sell items like on eBay, i haven't sold on there for a few years so cannot comment on fees to sell but it means you can grab some cheap items although with free super saver delivery now only being £5 its sometimes cheaper to buy directly from Amazon, i find this especially when it comes to
Another great thing about Amazon is the wish list facility, see something you like but can't afford it? Save it to your wish list for later. You can have multiple lists too if you like to be really organised. I currently have two.
I have always found delivery to be quick, i always use super saver instead of first class and most items are dispatched within 2 days and i have them a couple of days after that. If you need something quicker there is the option of first class and express delivery but these cost more.
I do live near a distribution centre but not sure if this is why i get them quicker or not, i live so close i wish they had a collect option!
My only negative about them is that they don't sell a wide range of fridges/freezers, washing machines etc. They sell a few but i mean a few less than ten of each probably and stock is limited and over priced.
I hope in the future this changes.
I have never had any problems with Amazon when it comes to customer service and will continue to be a loyal customer for a long time to come.
Summary: Look here for all you need!
