  • We got a 100.00 gift card for Amazon.com, haven't spent it yet, my sons gf orders her school books from them and my son orders video games etc. They've had great luck. Takes 3-5 business days for reg. order. I still have to sit down and figure it out myself. Some things you do pay postage as well unless it says otherwise.

  • I've never had a problem and unless something is back-ordered I usually get it pretty quick. The only thing is shipping can be kind of expensive.

  • I order from Amazon on an almost weekly basis, lol. I live overseas and a lot of places won't ship here or take soooooo long! Amazon does an amazing job of getting things shipped out, I normally have my stuff about 2 weeks after ordering! I have never had a problem.

  • Depends on if you are ordering directly from Amazon or from one of their independent sellers (individuals or companies selling through the Amazon site). I've bought from both but prefer to actually stick to Amazon itself. I've never had any issues with them and always get my stuff quickly (usually before they say it will get there).

  • I love amazon. I've ordered from them many, many times. I even have their credit card and accumulate points : ) most of my kid's book collection has come from Amazon. I've never had a problem. and easy to return anything you're not happy with.
    although I've never ordered from "used" sellers.

  • I order a lot from Amazon. I usually buy enough to use the Super Saving Shipping. Never had any trouble and got my items fairly quick. I make sure it's from Amazon though. I've never bought from an independent seller, so don't know about that.

  • I've ordered stuff from them. They are very dependable and I usually get my stuff in 2 - 3 days.

  • I also order a lot from Amazon. Never had any problems. But yes, shipping can be very expensive.

  • My Husband and I order A LOT. Of course it is legit! It wouldn't be such a big name if it wasn't.
