Online Shopper

I love to shop online.

The problem with shopping online is simple. More often than not the product is priced a little lower than the in store competition.... however shipping ends up putting the item into the same range, or higher than the stores.

I just don't get it. Online stores really need to get a better understanding of this. But then, business is business and they do need to make money, right? Therefore, I get why they still charge crappy shipping amounts (thank you thinkgeek!)

Anyhow that's where sites like Ebates.com and their enterprise coupon's come in. Basically they have deals with different companies where ebates passes part of the discount on to the consumer.

Kinda neat.
