Online Shopping

I do a TON of online shopping - gifts, books, DVDs, shirts for the boy. Usually I don't have a problem, and with books, I don't mind waiting for the "ship together" option because I already have a ton of books.

On September 19, I ordered Supernatural on DVD from half.com. Ask me if I've gotten it. Uh, no. Worse, they won't even let me contact the seller about it till today, because, you know, media mail takes 14 days. Um, yeah, but the place said they shipped it on that Friday. So where is it? And the reason I chose that company rather than one that was a couple of dollars less was because they said they shipped quickly.

On September 27, I ordered blank CDs and a CD wallet for the conference CDs for our chapter, thinking, oh, I'd have plenty of time to get the discs copied before the October meeting when I hand over librarianship. The wallet's here. The CDs are not. They haven't even shipped. There isn't even a number for CompUSA where I can call and find out. My chapter meeting is next Wednesday.

At least I had a good dream last night, starring Jim and Pam from The Office!

Mary,

I'm addicted to Amazon.com. I buy from them several times a month. And now that my kids are back in school, they need books too. :-)

I should've just ordered from Amazon, but it was $10 cheaper on Half. I emailed the seller, no response. But CompUSA did ship my CDs yesterday. They should be here tomorrow, in time for me to burn all weekend!

I used Half once, Mary and it worked out just fine. It all depends on the seller and luck. I've used amazon's sellers too. They come in handy from time to time, especially if amazon's "NEW" price is outrageous. :-)

I actually get most of my series from half, and only one other time have I had trouble. Also, once with an Amazon vendor.


I emailed the seller on Wednesday and haven't heard. GRRRR.
