    I only shop online for electronics stuff, so for that I browse between newegg, tigerdirect, and amazon. One of the three is always guaranteed to have what I'm looking for. As for all the other stuff, I work at walmart so I just buy what I need with my discount card before leaving work.

    I know, nothing can be more frustrating than ordering a couple dozen eggs online, only to have them arrive two days after Halloween...! :haha:

    Since Ikea has stores in most major markets, that's not cheating, that's what I like to call, "dry shopping".

    Look at you! You are an all spanish Sir. I think Mercadolibre is powered by e-bay, the same owners, probably... they even look alike! And yes, the name of the web it's kinda a capitalist "eslogan".... "buy/sell here and gain your freedom!"...

    I live with a senior citizen and am actually old enough to join aarp myself. We get the Chicago Tribune and shop those retail ads for Fry's, Best Buy, Office Depot, Office Max, and Comp USA. I also get Micro Center mailings and shop mostly retail. The stack of black friday and related newspaper ads was so big it almost hit the ceiling this weekend. In one ad you could get a 42" lcd hdtv from Wal-mart for $398 on black friday. We bought ours two years ago this way. When I returned my defective macbook pro to Fry's purchased retail, I got a FULL refund with no shipping or restocking fees. I just hope newspapers don't fall by the wayside too quickly.
