While Amazon usually has some of the lowest prices on the net-it doesn’t always. However it’s often worth spending a small premium to buy from amazon than from other web retailers.
1. Customer-centric policies: Amazon is one of the few retailers where the customer really is always right. Whenever I have had a problem with an order, they will fix the situation. Item delayed? Just ask for it, and they will overnight it to you for free!
2. Price-adjustments: Price went down? Just call and the difference will be refunded. Officially this is only good for 30 days, but most reps will adjust the price even past 30 days.
3. No sales tax and Free shipping on $25: So many other web retailers have half-baked free shipping policies that require coupons or have many exclusions, at Amazon it’s simple, spend $25 on stuff sold by amazon (not the annoying 3rd party stuff that shows up at the side) and shipping is free.
4. Prime shipping: I joined prime back when they had the $50 promotion and I love it, free 2 day shipping on everything they sell without the $25 premium-plus you can share it for free with 4 other household accounts!
5. Easy, free shipping returns with no restocking fees: Nearly all web retailers make you foot the shipping bill both ways for returns, and many (like Newegg) charge a restocking fee on all returns, even when defective.
With Amazon if there is any problem with the item, they will refund your original shipping fee (if you were under $25 or paid for faster shipping) and give you a free return shipping label so that you are not out a penny when you have a problem with anything bought from amazon.
