VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Wow! What a waste of electrons this article was.
Here are some other things that you shouldn't buy online:
4) Railroad cars
6) Bricks (and mortar!)
This is one of the dumbest and least informative articles I have ever wasted my time reading.
Wrong, debt is slavery...set yourself free, America!!
"You'll see sites that have a good price, but they're trying to get it to the East Coast from Arizona, and a lot of the time . . . it might be better to go to Best Buy," Wisnefski says.
Sorry dude, but there is never a time in one's life when it is better to go to Best Buy, unless of course you are made of money and aren't concerned at all with saving. Did you know Best Buy sells an HDMI cable for $1200? Yeah, those guys are not trying to rip people off at all?
I don't agree about not buying clothes on-line. Most of the time, it's the very best way to buy your clothes especially after you have found a good manufacturer to buy them from. You can assure you get the right sizes that regular stores don't carry most of the time and you have a wider variety to choose from.
WTF kind of STUPID article is this??? How do you think your audience is, retards from the Planet Stupid???
Anyone who has done online shopping knows of shipping and handling charges, delays in getting deliverIes would prohibit buying groceries or appliances on line??? Putting an appliance in the checkout and seeing the shipping charges is enough to press the DELETE button in no time.
For the writer...you say not to buy heavy items, like TVs online. First off, apparently you haven't purchased a TV lately. Flat screen TV's are not heavy, light enough that you can easily carry in a 46" by yourself. Even the big ones are not heavy, just awkward. PLUS, most items where you're spending $100 or better are free shipping, and even though some states are putting in sales tax for ONLINE purchases, many still do not charge it. I got a 46" LCD SONY TV for $350 less than local, no sales tax, delivered for free. Even if I'd have had to pay sales tax, I would have saved money over buying it local. The person that wrote about losing jobs due to online sales, you are correct, but the reason some of these places can sell at the the prices they do is because they have no overhead, and no employees, and I think even you would buy online if you could keep $500 more in your own pocket to spend on other things. We're all just trying to get by these days with what we have.
just as you have. The subject title says: "5 Products Not To Buy Online" then you went into a rapping frenzy and forgot your own subject. This isn't the 1st time either.
How does crap like this warrant a link on msn homepage? Complete waste of time.
Um.. this is common sense stuff.. Do people really not understand these concepts?
