    Default Amazon

    Just bought an electric kettle for £35 from a well known electrical shop from the high street because we needed one and it looked good and now looked on Amazon at home and it is only £20.

    Wished I waited now!

    Mate, never buy anything it a Bricks and Mortar store until yuo have done an online price check. The easiest way is to just goole an item, but instead of hitting 'Search' hit 'Shopping' and it will bring up the cheapest online price.

    Amazon will almost always be cheapest as they have a very sophisticated pricing robot that matches/slightly undercuts the best online price

    P.S Take it back, get a refund and buy it from Amazon

    that's a shame but not to worry as you could have got one from eBay for a £5

    LOCAL MAN HAS STEAMY AFFAIR WITH KITCHEN APPLIANCE. The shocking news was revealed by his angry wife who thought her husband had broke off the dangerous liaison because the kettle was just not his cup of tea anymore.

    I am sorry sir I cannot give you a refund as there appears to be some kind of lubricant around the spout and milk stains on the element. It has also suffered irreparable damage from some kind of shaking motion, it is not a frother for your cappuccino.

    I wish I did not start this thread now. Some people have turned this into electroality or kettlephillia.

    I know everybody here is just super concerned with saving a buck or two, but listen. Amazon shouldn't be used for everything.

    If you can, buy from local small stores. They're the people that actually need your money. The money is going towards somebody in the community, as opposed to who knows where. Amazon is one of the big reasons as to why small businesses are having trouble, along with WalMart.

    I refuse to shop at WalMart, because they're dirty, immoral fat cats. They're absolutely despicable. I only shop online for certain items, like books. My brother just recently got a motorcycle. In stores, a helmet goes for between 100 to 300 bucks. He bought a good helmet for $45 online somewhere. But for the little things that don't cost a great amount, it's worth the extra money to go to a small business because it's benefiting good hardworking people in the community, as well as promoting the local economy.

    Just food for thought, mates.

    towns and shops are dying a death and you are correct about helping out the small businesses but unfortunately for them the world is changing the sad truth is most people would rather order something online in the comfort of their own home and have it turn up tomorrow with no fuss.

    the alternative here is going out in the rain walking around town not finding what your after, rude kids behind the counter, stressing and wasting a full day.

    I can't remember if it was top shop or next who recently said they sell more online than they do via their thousands of retail shops

    its a dying culture going out shopping here is a prime example of an experience I had not so long back with the simple task of buying a fridge, We went to curry's and comet (big electrical shops in the UK) and seen the one we liked, said we'll have this one and were told it would take a week to deliver and there would be an extra £40 or so to pay for delivery... the wife went mental and said fuck this i'll get one online... we ended up using appliances online as they deal only online, the fridge was way WAY cheaper and it was delivered the next day for FREE.

    everything is evolving that is why we don't have videos, records and soon CD's we will soon just have hard drives, its progress good or bad its going to happen to shops and the small business's need to get online or be left behind wondering what happened
