Best Buy Blues
I second the ebay for small gadgets and electronics, electrical parts and replacement parts. Often we can get free shipping. I would be pretty nervous thought to order something big like a big TV.
With Amazon, my luck has been fifty/fifty. I love Amazon but often you are ordering through them from private stores. And half of the time those private stores won't ship here and you don't find out till the middle of checkout.
Before we moved here I NEVER ordered from anyplace like qvc or hsn, but both ship down here quickly and have great customer service.
