Was there online shopping before Amazon?

Okay, friends, it's been a while. We've been a tad bit busy and if you look over at my blogroll, so have most of them been. (Note: I do have more friends than those on my blog list and my 17 google followers.)

That being said, I want to let you know about a great deal. I love Amazon.com. I do. I love the subscribe and save, where you get 15% extra off your purchase and free shipping. I love the free shipping with qualifying order. I love the convenience of not having to go out shopping at a store where they may or may not have what I'm looking for. I love the universal link for wish lists! Ohhh- I love that feature! I love the free shipping. Did I already say that? (I shop plenty local and business is business.)

So, right now, if you go to Amazon under this link, you can sign up for a free trial of the Amazon Prime, which is basically free 2-day shipping. It is called Amazon Mom. Not a mom? How 'bout a grandma, a dad, an aunt, etc.? Pretty much anyone is covered except say college kids- and who knows? They might have their own version of Amazon Prime. It is a free 3 month trial and you can extend it if you buy at least $25 worth of stuff through the baby section. Diapers and wipes are 30%! Man, diapers delivered to your door! (Bill says we can't have another baby just for delivered discounted diapers, though.) Don't need diapers? Baby gifts? Bingo!

How did I find out about this? Well, one place I like to check out once in a while is Want Not. Mir searches the web for great deals and lets the rest of us know. She has a special affinity for shoes, Target and Amazon, so she and I get along great!

I could add the Amazon thing on my blog to make some money, but I'm not doing that right now. However, I'll tell you one favorite that Luke and I are so enjoying right now. Skippyjon Jones! Yes- indeed-o! This little Siamese cat thinks he's a chihuahua and his closet is where his imagination comes alive. If you love a good picture book, get these! All of our Skippyjon Jones books came with an audio cd. I just let that play for Luke while I get supper ready. Then we all talk for a week using our best Spanish accents, dude!

Last year I had Amazon Prime and it was GREAT for Christmas shopping! Now, it will be the same this year! Hooray!!

  1. So, have you heard of Swag Bucks? If not, let me hook you up! I shop at Amazon often...and for free! If you aren't using it yet, let me know....or go to my blog and find the Swag Bucks icon, near the bottom of the right column. You can earn points to trade in for money, just buy using a different search engine. It's great. I use it every time I'm on the internet. :)


Thanks for reading. Kind comments are always welcomed!
