Works For Me Wednesday

This week's "Works For Me Wednesday" edition is all about favorite on-line shopping places.

I'm not a big On-Line shopper, but these are my favorites:

Old Navy. There are some things here that we always buy, like boxers for my son. They have the only ones he will wear. Its a comfort factor. Old Navy has a flat $5.00 shipping charge, no matter what you buy. They also have great sales, if you can catch them!

LL Bean has the BEST customer service I have ever dealt with. They will fix any problem you may have. Their products are high quality and they also have good sales and you can get free shipping and monogramming if you use the LL Bean credit card. Just be sure to pay it off at the end of the month! This past Christmas they had free shipping on everything, no matter how you paid for it.

EBAY. You can find anything you could possibly want on EBAY. These are my suggestions to buying on EBAY.

1. Don't run the price up by bidding early! Just watch the item and see what happens. This isn't good when you are the seller, but I see new EBAYers bidding like crazy all the time, and experienced ones, just wait!

2. Don't fall for the ones that charge unreasonable shipping. I won't even look at the item if the shipping is out of line.

3. Be sure to check the sellers rating out. Not just the percentage, but how many actual unhappy customers they have had. If the seller has sold 8,000 items and has a 98% approval rating, that could be a lot of unhappy people!
