KEEPING UP WITH THE TIMES.

I have been hearing a lot about shopping on Amazon, ebay, etc. and I was curious but have not the opportunity to learn how to go about it. I like to learn new things because I know that we need to keep up with the times. It may not be easy for me as a retiree because I am a slower learner now compared to my younger days but that did not stop me from learning.

One Sunday afternoon after church, I had lunch with some friends. We have not met for quite a while. I was seated next to a young lady friend who has been a great help to me with her knowledge of computers, mobile phones, cameras, etc. She is a wonderful young lady and very patient with us elderly students. She took the time and trouble to explain and help us in whatever way she could whenever we are stuck with our modern gadgets or any online services.

After our meal, my lady friend was showing me something she just bought from ebay and also her experience with an oversea purchasing and shipment website.

Previously, she will have to get her brother who is staying in United States to buy whatever she wanted because some US Merchants do not recognize or accept her credit card. Then she will have to wait till he comes home for his holidays which is probably once a year or even longer. Now she need not have to trouble her brother and she is able to get the things she wanted from the shopping stores available e.g. Amazons, ebay, Coach, etc. just by clicking on the "BuyForMe" service on the USGoBuy website. 

Within a reasonable waiting period, she received her purchased items through us online shopping and she was happy with the services provided. I was all ears listening to her even though I may not really catch every word she was saying because some things are new to me. I heard her mentioning about free membership, free US address and about members enjoying lowest shipping rates as their customers, etc. Plus, the latest attraction is that a coupon of 10 usd will be given to new account holders.

Before we parted, she encouraged me to find out more about this USGoBuy website and if I need any help to call her or better still to get in direct contact with the website's Live Chat, etc. or even look it up Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/usgobuy.

Well, I might just browse through some of the Stores and see if there is any item that I might be interested to buy for myself. After all, once in a while, I need to pamper myself a little since I have not been shopping lately.

  1. You are such a sweet lady, Nancy! Yes, we are somewhat slower as we get older, but it is great to learn new things...and sometimes even fun, too! I have never shopped online but a friend of mine orders a lot from Amazon. They ship to her for free if she orders $25 or more, and since she always has orders of more than $25 she always gets free shipping. Once she got something for me which I gave her the money for, it was an organic tea. Very nice! :)

    1. Thank you, Linda. It is fun learning but sometimes it helps to have someone to show us the way and give us some useful tips.

  2. I have never shopped online but have just been browsing a few yarn stores as locally it is sometimes difficult to get the colours I want.

    1. I guess we have to move on with the times and try out new things which may even be better than what we have been used to.
