Keeping websites and blogs updated with interesting, relevant information is very important, but I know I don't always have as much time to devote to my pages as I would like.

I have been a Barnes and Noble member for a couple years now, and it has been a good experience. At first I wasn't a fan of spending $25 a year on membership, but now I see that if you're buying books anyway this is a good deal. You get savings on virtually everything, and that's just th beginning. They sent out coupons regularly for 20% off any one item, BOGO drinks at their cafe, etc. Sure, I don't use all of the coupons, but they do send a nice assortment. What I am loving right now is FREE shipping for members on ALL orders. That's right... No minimum purchase, no qualifying items, nothing. All of your orders that are completed by B&N (marketplace orders do not qualify, but whatever) are shipped to your home, free of charge, and you'll get them within just a few days. It's great!
My only major complaint with B&N... Sometimes their online prices are lower than their in store prices. I'll go home and find the book I just bought in a B&N store on their website for cheaper. I just try to check on this before buying any of the more expensive books.
If you have a B&N nearby (or do a lot of online shopping) and read a lot of books, I would highly recommend the membership. It's worth the cost.
I stop in my local Petco a couple times a month, and I am always impressed by their selection of pet supplies. From food and treats to toys and litter, they have it all! If I do have problems finding what I'm looking for, a store associate is always happy to help me find what I am looking for or the equivalent. They have great return policies, too! I like their rewards program, too. Not only do you get in store savings, they also send coupons in the mail and you get $5 off every time you spend $100. I know it's not a lot of money, but this program doesn't cost anything. It's free money just for buying the things I already need!
Petsmart is definitely one of my "go to" places when it comes to supplies for my dog and cat. While their selections are not endless, they do stock a wonderful variety of food, toys, treats, and other supplies. Very rarely do I have trouble finding something I need at Petsmart, and if I am having some trouble the associates are more than happy to help me locate the item either in the store or online. Great return policies, too! Plus I love having the option of getting my dog's nails trimmed while I shop.
With the number of purchases I make online, I was always worried about the safety of my credit card numbers and other personal information. Once a few fraudulent charges appeared in one of my accounts (thankfully it was nothing serious and I was able to resolve it easily with the credit card company) I decided to take actions to protect myself. I browsed a few ID protection companies but found that their services did not match my preferences and were just too expensive for me.
Then I discovered Identity Guard. This company provides members with monitoring and protection of their personal accounts and information. They can also help victims of identity theft recover from it. There are even memberships available to protect the identities of children! Plus, their website features a lot of articles, blog posts, videos, and more that are full of helpful information.
What I love about Identity Guard is that this company offers different membership levels, so I can choose the level of protection I want and can afford. I set my own alert preferences, so I know I will not be bothered about something silly. The alerts that I do select can be sent to me by email, phone, or even text message, which is great for my busy lifestyle.
Thanks to Identity Guard I do not need to worry about those online purchases anymore!
I had never owned a designer handbag before I bought my first Fossil purse, and I don't think I will ever buy anything different. I was looking for a quality handbag that was nice but didn't cost a whole lot of money, and I stumbled across the Fossil Key-Per line.
These are cute purses with quirky patterns on them, and they are usually made from cloth and vinyl. Very vintage and fun! My crossbody Key-Per bag cost less than $100, though I did purchase the matching wallet. I used this purse almost exclusively for about one year. I was impressed with my experience. Although the purse was dirty by that point, it was still in good shape. In fact, I cleaned it up and put it away for future use.
I have since moved on to a higher quality (and more expensive) Fossil purse. I haven't been using this one for very long, but it seems to be holding up as well as the previous one. I also have the matching wallet and key fob.
I like that Fossil has a wide selection of products to fit different styles and budgets. Some of their items are, in my opinion, way too expensive, but I like that I can get a nice handbag, wallet, or watch without spending hundreds of dollars. It's great!
One word of warning: If you buy online using a credit card, be aware that they may place two holds on your account if the items are not packed on the same day. My order came in two shipments and there were two pending charges on my credit card from Fossil, which amounted to more than the total purchase price. The customer service rep I spoke with was wonderful, though. She looked up my order quickly, explaned what happened, and reassured me that once the order was fulfilled the charges would be adjusted to the correct amount. A couple days later that's exactly what happened. I was pleased with this helpful service.
I switched to electronic cigarettes (ecigs) after smoking for several years. I started out with cheaper ecigs just to check out what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately, I had a lot of difficulty obtaining the flavor and strength I wanted., so I decided to take my business to the internet. I browsed some review websites for ecig distributors, and v2cigs.com was near the top at most lists I looked at.
This is not the cheapest distributor of ecigs, but their prices are quite reasonable. There are many kits to choose from, so you can try out their product for under $30 to start.
I was impressed by the variety of cartridge (carts) flavors, batteries, and accessories they had to choose from. They even have a sample pack of carts that includes one of every flavor - 3 different tobacco, 3 different menthol, chocolate, coffee, cherry, and vanilla. They have some specialty flavors, too, though these are not included in sample packs. You can order as few as 5 carts, and they have packs of 80. They even sell empty carts and liquid so you can fill your own.
Although I did not enjoy all of the flavors, the carts are fun. I prefer the medium strength because I found the full strength a bit too harsh. All of the carts produce a good vapor until they're basically empty. I would definitely recommend the normal or long battery. Be sure to get an extra battery because one usually lasts me one to two days before it needs to be charged again.
There are a few different shipping options available, include a $5 flat rate option. All of my shipments have arrived within one week. There are faster options available. For one of my previous orders they were out of a certain flavor. They sent along the rest of the order and sent the one pack along once it was available (which was only one or two days later).
Overall, I would recommend this company to smokers who are interested in trying out ecigs. A good product at a reasonable price, and their customer service has been helpful, too.
I have been shopping on Amazon.com for years. I have bought everything from books and clothing to snacks and soda. The prices are usually good (though sometimes you can find items elsewhere for cheaper), and I love the Free Super Saver Shipping option. If you buy $25 worth of qualifying items, you receive free standard shipping. I always receive the items within the designated time period, and the packaging is usually very good. I have had a few minor problems with Amazon.com, but they were all resolved pretty well considering this is a very large company with many customers. I like that you can purchase items from individual businesses, too. This is especially handy if you are searching for older or high demand items. Just be careful. These orders are not fulfilled by Amazon.com, so different shipping fees/return policies/etc. may apply.
I absolutely love browsing items and shopping on eBay, and I have done a little selling on this website, too. It can be a wonderful experience, as long as you are cautious. There are many rules associated with buying and selling on eBay, so make sure you are familiar with them. When I buy items, I make sure I am purchasing from a user who has a high feedback score and a decent number of transactions. Selling is trickier, though. Items are only protected by eBay if they include tracking, and missing items (e.g. if the Post Office loses them) are not covered. You will be out the money because the buyer will be issued a refund. So, just be careful and you're sure to have a good buying/selling experience.
