Where do you get better deals?

I know I'm the underdog here but I trust the products on Amazon. E-Bay is too much of a gamble. I have purchased items that looked perfect in the picture then turned out to be cheap replicas of what I thought I was getting. This has happened on high and low end products. I made the mistake of bidding on a tablet once, it lives in the junk drawer now. I bought a "genuine" Harley Davidson Zippo brand lighter. The box it came in was the only place I found the Zippo logo. The lighter itself was made of tin with a crooked Harley Davidson sticker on the face of it. I was so thankful I had the item sent to me rather than to the gift recipient for which I had purchased it. I would have been mortally embarrassed.

Ebay is fine if you want to gamble, but if you really need it and need to to be right, just go for the guaranteed thing.

According to my personal experience, i usually get better deals at ebay. Goods are listed on Ebay are cheaper and rarer. Most of the time when I can't find anything on Amazon, I find in on Ebay. So just stick with it ;)

You get better deals at ebay. It's just that sometimes I get stuff on ebay and it feels like it's been used already. I called support the other day and they said something about terms and conditions ...don't know.

Ebay is filled with people who are selling things they don't need at very low prices! If you are determined enough to browse through a lot of listings, you are bound to find some gold mines. Amazon is good too, but I seem to think things are generally more expensive there

I bought many items on eBay. The prices are too low that one would rather take a chance to buy items online. I should know. I bought two cameras on eBay because the price is low enough for me to take a chance of buying them online than in a local shop from where I live.

eBay is more strict (maybe too strict for my taste), more professional which means more security for me as a consumer. I can appreciate that it is not allowed to post reviews of the product if you haven't actually bought it (that also means a security for a consumer). The site is more user friendly.

While this does vary a bit I tend to find that eBay usually offers the better deals while Amazon's items tend to look cheaper but cost an arm and leg in P&P. That said I do tend to find Amazon has a broader stock so my eCommerce tends to include both.

I am wondering cause I do a lot more and I have a great husband who cooks, cleans, shops but I still do much more. Is it because men work longer hours? Does a messy house and not eating properly simply bother women more? Maybe we think men won't do a good job so it's better to do it ourselves? Or is it the "women belongs behind the stove" mentality?
