Great Deals and Gold Box Specials on Fridays

by Simon Prescott

Amazon, the “dot com” business known for taking the shopping experience to an entirely new level quickly turned itself into a heavily traded company on Wall Street. Nonetheless, even though many people are aware that Amazon is a super place to buy new and used versions of practically any book title, there are still quite a few folk who don’t know about all the other items which Amazon offer at discounted prices because their overheads are so low.

On Amazon you will find items like TV’s, video games, synthesizers, photography and video gear, MP3 and media players, household appliances, home theater systems, GPS tracking and mapping devices, electric guitars, cell phones and service providers, cameras and audio equipment to name but a few. The Amazon Kindle is also available. This is a portable wireless reading device which provides you with access to over 130,000 newspapers, magazines, books and blogs.

As well as all this Amazon sells a good selection of computers and office furniture and supplies so you will no longer find the trip to Target or Wal-Mart necessary for this type of equipment. More of less anything that you can find in Staples such as PC’s and laptops, hardware and software, computer games and components are right there are your fingertips, in the same was as the coffee is for your break time.

Need exercise equipment? Hop onto Amazon and find elliptical trainers, treadmills, rowing machines, stationary bikes, home gym systems, weight lifting equipment, medicine balls, yoga and pilates mats, strength training stretch cords, jump ropes, pedometers, and athletic apparel.

You will find all the top video games compatible with your home computer or video system such as Nintendo, along with Guitar Hero On Tour, Izuna 2, Madden NFL ’09, including Collectors’ Editions, NCAA Football ’09, Rain Drops, Sims 2, The Unemployed Ninja Returns, Wordmaster; and even video game accessories such as the Wii Nunchuk controller when you browse through the Amazon website.

If you are in need of some new footwear then look no further than Amazon. Maybe you are searching for a nice pair of pumps, some smart Oxfords, or a new pair of shoes for your children. The jewelry section is great for gifts in metals like platinum, gold or silver and many pieces are set with precious and semi precious stones. If you could do with a new watch you can make your choice from Timex, Seiko, Omega, Citizen and Casio or for the kids there are Disney watches available too.

Do you want to get on with a spot of DIY or even know someone else who should be doing? If this is the case then you will find many useful items such as plumbing fixtures, power and hand tools, outdoor power equipment, lighting and electrical gear, home improvement manuals and tools to do the job, automotive tools, and even some industrial and scientific equipment.

The Home and Garden section features top of the range items where you will find everything from a kitchen aid mixer to gardening tools, vacuum cleaners to garden furniture and accessories. I am sure by now you are getting the idea. Amazon is definitely where it’s at.
