3 Reasons to Shop Online

Over the past number of years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the popularity of online shopping. Nowadays, people are beginning to do just as much, if not more shopping online than they do in physical retail stores. Black Friday now has to compete with Cyber Monday every year, with Cyber Monday becoming the “Black Friday” of online shopping. The question though is, why do people want to shop online? Why do you want to shop online and have to wait almost a week sometimes for your product to come in the mail, when you could just as easily go out to the store, buy the product that day, and come home and start using it? Well, it turns out that there are 3 distinct reasons as to why people want to shop online.

1. To Save Gas Money: Look, gas has gone through the roof, and it shows absolutely no sign of stopping. Gas is now at $4 a gallon, with speculation that is may go as high as $5 per gallon this summer. Maybe that’s why the Mayans stopped their calendar at the end of 2012, because they knew people wouldn’t be able to get around anymore, I don’t know, but what I do know is that gas is expensive. How does this relate to online shopping? Easily, the higher gas gets, the more money you save by ordering online! Never thought of it that way I’ll bet…it’s true though, at $4 per gallon, the average consumer will save $8-$10 per trip to the store if they make their purchases online.

2. Avoiding Crowds: Most people hate crowds. I hate crowds. I loved them as a kid, and loved going wherever there were large gatherings of people (theme parks, I’m looking at you.) However, at 25 years of age now, I honestly can’t stand crowds, and this is just another reason why online shopping is so popular now, you can do it at home, by yourself, no one’s bothering you…you just do you shopping, and you’re done. No crowds involved, no lines to wait in at check out. Shopping online is the quickest checkout line you will ever experience in your life!

3. Finding Great Deals: Now here’s probably the biggest perk; everyone has deals! Every single day, companies are coming out with bigger and better online deals. Free shipping is becoming common online, and with no sales tax online in most states, that’s an automatic savings. Some of the best ways to save money online are through Amazon deals. Combine this with finding great discounts online, and the gas money that you’re saving, and it’s a no-brainer as to why people love to shop online. There are always great deals online that can save you thousands of dollars per year by shopping online.

So, you can clearly see now why online shopping is so popular. These are just 3 reasons, out of many different reasons as to why online shopping is just so stinking popular, and showing no signs of stopping, but only gaining further strength. Get online, search around for Amazon deals, and see for yourself just how much money you could be saving.
