It's beginning to look like an Amazon Christmas... I will do ANYTHING to not step in a mall this year!  I've had nothing but great luck with Amazon, easy to search, flawless... works for me!

Trivia from WIKIPEDIA:  Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is a US-based multinational electronic commerce company. Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, it is America's largest online retailer, with nearly three times the Internet sales revenue of the runner up, Staples, Inc., as of January 2010.[3]
Jeff Bezos founded Amazon.com, Inc. in 1994 and launched it online in 1995. The company was originally named Cadabra, Inc., but the name was changed when it was discovered that people sometimes heard the name as "Cadaver." The name Amazon.com was chosen because the Amazon River is the largest river in the world, and so the name suggests large size, and also in part because it starts with 'A' and therefore would show up near the beginning of alphabetical lists. Amazon.com started as an online bookstore, but soon diversified, selling DVDs, CDs, MP3 downloads, computer software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, and toys. Amazon has established separate websites in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and China. It also provides international shipping to certain countries for some of its products. A 2009 survey found that Amazon was the UK's favorite music and video retailer, and third overall retailer.[4]

Ha! I haven't stepped foot in a mall, or even a store as a matter of fact. Amazon, Ebay, Overstock, Smart Bargains....they are all bookmarked on my computer :)

(Though if you read my latest post, I will no longer be using anything but credit card and never storing it on the sites to "save time". UGH)
