Why Amazon Beats Wal-Mart
Slate, by Farhad Manjoo

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/30/2012 5:50:40 AM

Last Friday morning, I woke up with a single abiding need: I had to have a new Xbox 360. My old one died a few weeks ago—well out of warranty, it came down with the dreaded “Red Ring of Death” technical failure. This wasn’t a big deal, because I never have time to play games, but this weekend my parents were in town and were happy to take care of my pesky toddler. I had a free day. And for me, on a day off, there’s nothing more relaxing than a few hours with the new Call of Duty.

He´s right. I have had nothing but great service from Amazon. If I pay for two day shipping, I almost always get it the next day. Love Amazon!

Im with #2. Amazon does so many things right. They nearly always have what I´m looking for. They have fantastic customer service. The free/ low cost books on kindle have provided me with hundreds of hours of pleasure, and when I´m done with the book, the book reviews on Amazon are almost as interesting.... =)

Another great site is Zappos...for shoes and clothes. Free shipping, free returns.

Amazon is great but to criticize stores for being out of a certain toy on black Friday illustrates downright idiotic thinking.

I wonder if the author realizes he was interacting with a string of Obama voters every time he got a shrug of the shoulders.

The Wal Mart exec is priceless: ´misaligned incentives.´. That means he knows his mouth breathing staff really can´t be bothered.

If he wanted to play TODAY, like he said, he has no choice. He has to shop at a brick and mortar store.

"After all, wasn’t I the moron for expecting a pain-free shopping experience on the busiest day of the year?" Yes.

I like Amazon for things I can wait on to be brought to me. But I have two Walmarts near me, equidistant, that I don´t hesitate to go to for groceries and as first-check for everything else. I do try to avoid both of them on the first weekend of each month, however. Crazy busy with EBT card shoppers.

The place I won´t shop is Target.... not until they allow the Sal bell-ringers back.

LOL, #8, I totally agree on the EBT shoppers. We have a wonderful super Walmart near us and use it almost every day, I know many of the clerks on a first name basis. One day I commented to the check out lady that the store seemed super busy.....She looked at me and said, "You come here all the time, you should know better than to come here before the fifth day of the month."

Walmart is still my hero until they prove otherwise.They´re the main reason consumer inflation has been held in check for the most part the past 15 years+.

The unions and other liberal goons who stop them from being built really don´t have people in mind. Walmart employs thousands of people other businesses won´t touch.Looks don´t matter.
No matter how good Amazon is,they can´t make a postal worker move any faster.

Amazon has always been great. I dont care for their constant spam, but it is easily deleted.
Wal Mart is ok too, for the same reason that our local all you can eat place is ok. Prices are ok, selection is ok, but service and quality are lacking.

Well, #14, there is always another store to buy from but keep this in mind......You will be buying the same China-made stuff they have at Walmart, you will just be paying 20-30% more for it.

Amazon is the best and always has been. Zappos, too, since that was mentioned by another poster. Both send you the ´already shipped´ email within hours. Dependable, in stock notifications are correct, and good customer service. What more do you want? Actually after shopping 4-5 years online all websites I order from have great shipping and service now. I do 95% of my Christmas shopping online and couldn´t be happier. UPS and USPS tracking is great, too. You can track from warehouse to your front door and delivery is quick and dependable with both.

The article´s complaint was that some websites online say they are in stock at your local store and they are not. That´s a very valid complaint. With computers it should be automatic that when each item is sold and goes through the computerized cash register in any store it should be automatically deleted from that store´s in stock online. I don´t blame this author being ticked off. It´s the fault of the web masters and computer system if website shows in stock and the store is not, not the local retail employees.

Choice - screaming toddler versus spending all day running around town looking for an x-box.

Yea, let granny handle the toddler.

I have no clue who Farhad is; but he says he has spent tons of hours interviewing Walmar Executives. Why?

Agree with others, if your only quest in life is to find an x-b and then write a long winded story, you probably need a new life.

And take your toddler with you and take care of him like a responsible adult.

ObamaVoter ??? Probably

#18, you expect a company with thousands of locations to update instantly when any of the millions of items they have in stock are sold? Never done much programming with databases have you? Updating massive databases is a resource-extensive process. Essentially, what you want is technologically impossible right now.

A number of posters have mentioned how customer-friendly Amazon is. Here´s a thought: it´s easy to be friendly to a customer you never have to come face to face with. I suspect many of you have never actually worked as a retail associate.

It is easy to stand on NO-Wal-Mart principle when the nearest on is 45 minutes away. All the same, I am content to patronize my small locally-owned businesses whenever possible, even if it means paying a few pennies more. Often, if I need enough of something to make a difference, cost-wise, I can ask the local hardware store guy to match the big-box price, and he willagreek and assure me that my stuff will be in on the truck that arrives Thursday morning. Of course, my life is vastly simplified by NOT needing an X-box today, or ever.

Amazon backs the collection of taxes by state of purchaser.
I can drive to Delaware and pay no taxes or buy through Amazon and have my info passed aliong to the State so I can pay my ´fair share´.

I am so glad I grew up with a real man as a dad who would hold me and play with me as a little guy, and would never pass me off to grandma for a "free day" so he could run around on the busiest shopping day of they year, not to buy a precious toy for me or my mom or sisters, but for himself.

No wonder women have such a hard time finding a man. So many are like this wimp.

Note, if anyone ever pointed a REAL gun at him and not in the video game, he would probably hide behind his infant and cry.

I am an enthusiastic Amazon "Prime" shopper. (Won´t be when they start charging sales tax). I recently bought a 52" HD TV set. It was delivered by truck instead of UPS (too big I guess). The driver brought inside the house, unpacked it, carried it into the room where it was going, hooked it into my DirecTV system , turned it on and tested it. I told him i was impressed with level of service and asked him "why". He told me that he was independent, Amazon had just started using him, knew that Amazon solicited comments on deliveries and wanted a good comment from me(he got it and a $20 tip).

Are they tech savy--yesterday I did some research on a particular Dyson vac on their site, added it to my wish list. A minute ago I clicked on a news link from the Lucienne site. Up popped an Amazon ad for that same model. Coincidence??

I did 99% of my Christmas shopping at Walmart and Amazon this year. Even the supplies for my handmade gifts came from those two retailers. And looking at my list I’d say each got about a 50/50 share of my business. I price shop online first at both websites then hit the local Walmart. (There are four within 8 miles radius of my home in Tennessee, one in Kentucky where sales tax is lower.) If I don’t find it in stock at Walmart, I order online through Amazon.

Amazon has been wonderful for shipping gifts to my granddaughter back in Texas and my son-in-law stationed in Europe. We were even able to ship gifts that the post exchange could not get to him in Afghanistan. And when his kindle ‘fried’ in Afghanistan, he emailed Amazon and they shipped him a replacement immediately. It arrived at his forward operating base in Afghanistan within three days.

LOL. No coincidence, #30. If you want to know the companies that really have online shopping down to a science just click on products and retail websites which you might be considering buying or buying from. The good ones with good service will pop up on Lucianne.com almost immediately and will remind you day after day of that perfect gift you were researching.

Amazon is one of many, Barnes & Noble another. I looked at some books for babies/toddlers at b&n.com last night and today those exact books are all over Lucianne.com for me to see. Had 2 pkgs ordered from Amazon delivered today- came in 2 days right on time, one by mail, one by UPS.

Unfinished Business Complicates
Clinton’s Diplomatic Legacy
New York Times, by Mark Landler & Amy Chozik    Original Article

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

Ever since ObamaCare supposedly hit the arbitrary target of 7 million sign-ups by March 31, its supporters have been taking the most premature victory lap since conservative proponents of the Iraq War (like me) crowed about the results of the three elections inside Iraq in 2005 and how they demonstrated the country was on the verge of a historic peace. “It’s all over but the shouting: ObamaCare is working,” said Eugene Robinson in Tuesday’s Washington Post. “All the naysaying in the world can’t drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, is a real success.” Those

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error. The ferry was carrying 477 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to

Could the Boston Marathon

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

A Year After Background
Check Defeat, Modest Goals
Associated Press, by Alan Fram    Original Article

WASHINGTON -- Democratic worries about this November´s elections, a lack of Senate votes and House opposition are forcing congressional gun-control supporters to significantly winnow their 2014 agenda, a year after lawmakers scuttled President Barack Obama´s effort to pass new curbs on firearms. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., recently said he needs additional votes before revisiting a proposed expansion of gun sale background checks that the Senate derailed last April. That has left advocates of tighter gun curbs hoping Reid will allow votes on more modest proposals, such as one by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., to add convicted stalkers to

The fairest explainer I’ve found on the Bundy saga is Becket Adams’s post at TheBlaze. If, like me (and Ace), you came to this story after it had already been hyper-polarized and weren’t sure whose facts to trust, try Adams’s Q&A. He plays it straight. In one sense this is complicated — land ownership, grazing rights dating back decades, a court battle, the feds tasing a Bundy family member, even a Harry Reid cameo — but after listening to this Glenn Beck interview with Bundy, it seems surprisingly simple. Bundy stopped paying the BLM in 1993 for grazing rights on

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.
