  1. Make sure you contact the place or person you are buying from too get all the information about the thing you are buying. Always get permission from an adult or parent if you are buying something on their credit card.- Taylor

  2. My mom will only buy it if it is safe. She will check if it is safe before she buys it. -Jeremy

  3. my dad always when shopping always read the description before buying. He will check the website if it is not safe lock we dont buy. Samuel Poage

  4. Henry

    My mom doesn't enjoy online shopping because she prefers to talk to someone in person especially if she has any questions about the product. She knows it can be quick and easy, but it can also be annoying, especially if you need to return the product. With online shopping you cannot touch, feel, or handle the product like you can in a store.

  5. Hunter- My mom loves it! She says you can find killer deals for super cheap stuff. She also said its super handy because it comes to your door!

  6. my mom said: I like the convenience of on line shopping. You can almost always get better deals, and with coupons free shipping too.

  7. My mom doesnt like shopping online because she wants to know for sure what shes getting so she goes to the store. My dad doesnt mind shopping online.

  8. My mom likes shopping online for items like books, clothes, Christmas gifts, and birthday gifts. She likes the convenience of having the item delivered to the house. She likes avoiding the Christmas crazies. She also likes how shopping online provides greater options (like styles, sizes, book titles) then found in an actual store.
    My dad doesn't know what the internet is, let alone internet shopping. :)

  9. My mom said that she likes online shopping because it is easy to find the best deals and almost everything can be found on one site. She also said that sometimes it is hard to tell the quality and size of items found online, and shipping costs are sometimes a problem. Sometimes things bought online do not get shipped in time for a holiday/birthday.


  10. My mom thinks online shopping is okay so she docent have to go to the store

  11. My parents think that online shopping could be useful if it is a reliable website. They also think that it could not be a good idea if you are not looking into it more to see if you can get a good deal form it.

  12. It's very convenient. It's easy to price shop and find good deals. Many places have free shipping which makes it that much better.

  13. CJ-Mom, You can find some good deals, but you can't see the product or try things on, so that makes it hard for clothing, etc...great if you know exactly what your'e looking for.

  14. Keith B.- "I think online shopping is easy and convenient. You can find some great bargains along with possibly free shipping."

  15. I love online shopping its convenient and you can get almost anything you want.
