    Not good at all. They have the online market by the balls and they know it. I came to that realization when they pushed for online sales tax collection.

      I have been trying my best not to purchase from them as much as possible. A socialist becoming the richest person in America using the capitalist economy totally disgusts me.

        I have never purchased anything from them. Donít even know how their setup works.

        I will admit I looked at some stuff there a time or two, but never figured out how to order from them.

          I dont like how big they have become. just like Sears,AT & T & some others it will get ugly at the end.
          my brother has G E stock, it looks like they are sinking right now.

            As of tonight, Iíve completed about 90% of my Christmas shopping......and havenít stepped foot in a brick and mortar building.
            Bought off Craigslist, TicketMaster, Amazon, EBay, and Target.
            When you purchase on Targets website, you can set it up where they bring it right out to your car.
            We also rarely go into the grocery store anymore either. Order our groceries online, pick them up after work.
            Amazon and all these online retailers have a pretty good gig....until the next big thing comes around, probably after my lifetime. Yes, itís a shame Bezos doesnít align with my politics, but Iím not gonna let that stop me from enjoying MY life.

              I am with you sm I almost never shop in stores anymore, I do almost all my shopping online (with the exception being food shopping) & have it delivered to my front door.

                i use amazon a lot, mostly because they have the things i want for the most part. i do agree though that amazon needs to back off their bully tactics with their associates.

                  I use Amazon a lot and have a prime membership. Between all the movies, tv shows, free 2 day shipping, and often a lot cheaper prices, it just makes sense to me. Eventually they will get to that point they are so big they will implode from the inside out and then something new and improved will come along everyone will use. I try not to support people that hate America (socialists/liberals, same thing), but man, if you boycotted every single one of them you couldnt do anything but watch Fox news and eat Chikfila.

                      Amazon has scared me since it's inception! The whole concept of centralizing things that we need to feed and nourish our minds, bodies and souls, down to only one source lends itself to abusive control over individual lives! I won't say more, for fear of having those thoughts banished to the pit. Just be aware, that when anything becomes available from just one entity, some of the freedom of choice has been taken away!
