The clock is ticking down rapidly, and parts of the country are bitterly cold, so how do you wrap up all of your holiday shopping in time?

Each year online shopping seems to catch on more, but it still amazes me how many people don’t think to go online for their shopping.  Why fight the crowds?  Why go out in the cold?  Why pay full list prices for items?

This was one of the most amazing things to me when I had to go to our local Hastings yesterday to sell some old games I wanted to get rid of.  As I wandered the store I saw a copy of the newest version of The Nightmare Before Christmas marked at $29.99. If you go over to Amazon, it is $20.99.  If you belong to their Amazon Prime shipping where you get unlimited 2nd Day Air shipping for $79 a year, and you add in the fact you don’t pay tax with most online stores, you see how far ahead you come out.

It’s not just DVD type media that you can find these sort of better deals on.  Hasbro released an AT-TE Tank toy that is huge, and at Wal-Mart in my town it is $99.96 plus tax.  Amazon has it for $90.51 with free shipping, Big Bad Toy Store has it for $70.00 plus $19.09 shipping for a total of $89.09.  Sure you’re talking savings of $9 – $10, but you are also talking about saving time, gas and frustration.  Travelling somewhere for the holidays?  Have the gifts shipped directly to your destination so you don’t have to contend with them in the car, on the plane or on the train.

In short, online shopping solves a lot of issues for you, one of the biggest being time.  All of us here at StarterTech do almst 100% holiday shopping online, and have for years.  We couldn’t be happier, and we certainly don’t miss fighting the crowds out in the stores.

    Online shopping is a lot more convenient, especially around the holidays. Going online can be a convenient and economical way to do your holiday shopping.
