OK, I know they treat their staff like shit, but they are reasonably priced and very convenient… especially when you have Prime.
I also like how it’s possible to read reviews, before making a purchase; very handy if you have never bought that particular item before. Of course, reviews are subjective and you’ll often see a one-star review nestled in amongst dozens and dozens of five-star ones, claiming that this is the worst piece of crap ever and everyone should avoid buying it.
I reckon that sometimes, when I’m looking for something, I’ll spend more time reading the reviews than if I’d actually gone to a shop and bought one!
Another useful thing, is the ability to post a question on the item’s page.
But it does amaze me how some people feel the need to reply to a question, even if they don’t have a useful response.
I recently bought some items and here are some of the questions and responses that I saw for them:
A battery charger
A keypad for my aunt’s alarm panel
A 12 Volt Lead Acid Battery for the same alarm panel
I think this one was for a bike lock
This is my favourite… for a plug-in USB charger for a car cigarette lighter socket
