Online Shopping- Yay or Nay?

I am a huge fan of online shopping... really, I LOVE it. My husband however is annoyed by it (especially during the holiday season when I tend to do a lot of surprise online shopping). So, here's my argument for it.

One of my favorite things about online shopping is the ability to compare prices. With pretty much all the stores out there available right at your fingertips, you can definitely do some quick searching around for the best price. Another thing I love...once I find that best price I can get even more bang out of my buck and save with free Coupon Codes. With the use of the internet you can find discount codes and coupons for nearly any store you are shopping at. 

I do a lot of shopping on I love that pretty much anything I want is there...and with Prime membership I can get free 2 day shipping (LOVE it)! And then don't forget the coupon codes to make things even sweeter (see Coupons for Amazon). In fact, I purchased a grill for my husband for Father's Day...and it only cost me a little over $100! I got a great deal, and free two day shipping. I didn't have to spend money on gas...I didn't have to take the time to drive to a store where they sold grills....all I had to do was turn on my computer and do a search. 

My husband likes to actually SEE things before he buys them. I get this...I do like to, too. I've been mislead by online retailers in the past, and it does deter me from purchasing online at times. My husband likes to walk into a store like Sears and check out and compare things that are right in front of him... yay, that's good and all- but he could save more money if he could use Promo Codes for Sears like you can online! 

I enjoy the hunt for the best bargain, my husband enjoys the hunt for the product... different shopping styles for different people, and I suppose that's okay (but I will always get the better deal)!

What's your shopping style like? Do you prefer online shopping, or actual brick and mortar shopping?

It's a toss up for me! Sometimes I just love getting something in the mail, other days I love the experience of going out and shopping the whole day. I have, though, gotten more and more comfortable with shopping online. I never used to be, but now I enjoy it! :)

I love online shopping with low or no shipping expense. I like good deals and good merchandise. It saves gas, time, extra shopping trip expenses such as food and drinks etc. and child care for parents with little ones.
