Amazon has got to be my favourite place to buy electronics, birthday presents and to read reviews on products (as well as dooyoo!).
There are many categories to search through if your browsing including electronics, home products, clothes, jewellery, sports equipment, books, dvds. You name it, its probably on there.
I mostly use it to buy extras or games for my nintendo wii or presents. I have found some lovely jewellery on there including a pair of 3d heart earrings which in Marks and Spencers cost over £10, but on Amazon were only £5.99 and were exactly the same.
You can get free super save delivery, where they cannot guarantee when your item will arrive, but then it is free! I always miss the deliveries as I am at work but they leave a note and you can pick it up from your local post office. If you want special delivery for next day then you can choose this at checkout but it will cost more.
The site is very easy to use, you can either search for exactly what you want, or browse through the menus and sort through items according to size, cost, style or anything else you can think of.
What is great about amazon is that when you create an account and add things to your wish list, it recommends things that you might like. This is great when choosing presents for yourself that you may not have seen before or even knew you wanted!
Also you could spend your amazon voucher from dooyoo there, just choose apply gift certificate at the payment page. You will still need to enter a debit card as well to cover any extra costs if you go over your voucher balance. The site can also save your card and delivery address.
Try amazon and see the huge amount of items available from sellers all over the country.
Summary: Try it!!
