The Pros & Cons of Online Shopping

Image courtesy of sixninepixels/
Why drive to Walmart when you can buy the same item online, right from home? Well, this could be a good option for some, but not others. Good because maybe you live in a rural town that doesn't have a local Walmart. Not-so-good for those who would pay less in gas money driving there instead of paying shipping costs.

That is just one pro vs con example. Here are a few more.

  • Use of coupons codes: There is a plethora of sites that you can use to find exclusive discounts and coupon codes to use at your favorite shopping site. Many of these are available solely to online shoppers. You can find free shipping codes, free item with purchase offers, percentage off codes and many more.
  • Hard to find items: Thanks to sites like eBay, it is possible to find truly unique and hard to find items such as antiques. Maybe you have a collector in your family; you're not going to be able to find that 1927 bronze pegasus in any store!
  • Ship gifts directly: What if you have a family member that lives cross-country and won't be able to see for the holidays? Most online stores give you the ability to ship to their address, not yours. Problem solved!
  • No waiting: This is a big benefit during the holiday shopping season, especially if you are a last minute shopper. You can include skipping traffic in this pro as well.
  • Price comparisons: This is one of my favorite reasons to shop online. There are many sites that specialize in this. Just type in the item you're looking for and the site will scour their database of stores (usually 100s of them) and show you lowest price in a matter of seconds. Many sites also show you any available coupon codes to stretch your savings.
  • Costs: Unless you're able to find a free shipping code or some other kind of discount, chances are you will pay more than if you went to the store to buy something.
  • Physical interaction: This applies to items like clothing. I personally can not do any clothes shopping online because I need to try on clothes. I can easily go through 8 pairs of pants, all the same size, before I find a pair the actually fit.
  • Personal data: This is a pretty rare occurrence, but identity theft can happen when you enter any kind of personal data online, especially financial information. Make sure you buy from a reputable site and if you have any doubts, pass on it.
  • Returns: What if your TV arrives with a busted screen, or those shoes don't fit. Some online stores offer free returns, but it's still a hassle to re-pack it up, print out a shipping label and mail it back. Even worse if you need to pay to ship it back! If you bought at a store, simply drive back and show your receipt.
  • Eco-friendliness: I can't tell you how many times I've ordered things like body spray and one bottle comes in a box that could easily fit about 10 of them. Between the size of the box and all the extra padding inside, that's a lot of garbage (even if it can be recycled). On top of that, you have the trucks and planes that ship it cross country or overseas.
Can you add any pros or cons to this list? What kind of shopping do you prefer? I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions!

Survey Sites Paid for Our Florida Vacation!

I have signed up for so many survey sites over the years. I have to admit, there are quite a few spammy ones, but then there are the ones that actually pay. A few years ago, me, my daughter, my best friend and her sister went on vacation to Florida. My survey earnings paid for almost the entire cost of me and my daughter's trip to Disneyworld, SeaWorld and Universal Studios, including travel, food, hotels and admission!

To do that, I had to completely cash out all my PayPal and check earnings from about 8-10 sites. If I had to say a length of time I had been saving up before I cashed out, it was probably around a year and a half to two years. Now, that may sound like a long time or a waste of time, but it is SO worth the few minutes I spend taking surveys a day.

If you sign up for the right survey sites, you will see that your time will be well spent and totally worth it. I suggest creating an email account specifically for surveys so A) you don't miss any opportunities and B) you can log into that email whenever you have some free time to complete that day's surveys.

Here are a few of my favorite sites that I use and recommend:

NOTE: Most of these survey sites require email confirmation in order to be eligible to start earning. So make sure you confirm your email right after you sign up and before you start taking surveys!

e-Poll: All members are entered to win (1) $1,000 and (50) $20 prizes. They offer PayPal and gift cards rewards, including Best Buy, Amazon and many more.

Ipsos I-say (ages 18-30): They offer PayPal, gift cards and charity donations as rewards. They also offer several automatic chances to win cash and prizes. For example, every time you click on a survey link, you'll automatically be entered to win $5,000 every month!

Mindfield: This one offers payment by check. You can cash out for as little as $5.00.

MySurvey: Earn PayPal cash, gift cards and more with this one. Every time you log into the site you're entered to win $4,000 and they award 10 members 10,000 points ($100) every month, just to name a few of their incentives.

MyHotSpex: Exchange your HotSpex Bux for PayPal cash, merchandise (like cameras), gift cards, giveaway entries and more.

OpinionPlace: Earn PayPal cash, Amazon gift cards, sweepstakes entries and AAdvantage Miles. I really like this one. I rarely get DQ'ed with these surveys and you can choose your prize before you take the survey. They offer product tests as well.

Here is a screenshot of what I was shown directly after taking my OpinionPlace survey right before I wrote this post (click to enlarge). It's a PayPal confirmation and I will get it in a few weeks. You get paid for every survey you saving up and cashing out with this site!

Valued Opinions: They offer many different ways to earn, including online focus groups and telephone surveys. Their online surveys seem to pay more than most sites. You can earn Visa codes, Amazon and Macys gift cards and much more.

There are many more survey sites out there, but these are the ones that I personally use and can vouch for their ability to pay what you earn! Stick with these sites in particular and you should have no problem funding your holiday shopping or a vacation like I did!
