Thankfully, with Amazon's A-to-Z Guarantee I was able to recuperate all of my losses, but the reality was that I was left to make the trek to the bookstore and the cell-phone accessory kiosk at the mall on my own and buy stuff I already ordered at a discount—but at full price.
I, like any girl left without a rubbery-soft cell phone skin, debated whether the $5 or $6 I was poised to save would have even been worth the wait had I had the foresight to realize that my stuff would never arrive.
Is online shopping really as convenient and money-saving as all the early hype would have led you to believe? Or have you, like me, had a bad experience with online shopping that will scar you from clicking "Add To Cart" ever again? Let us know in the comments...
