If you've followed any of the threads in which I've tried to buy something/discussed buying something, you know how hard it's been for me to persuade the parents to let me buy anything on this forum. That also means you can probably guess that I've never bought anything online, and my parents do so VERY seldom.
However, I just made a transaction. :) I got a CC and Wallyworld gift card for Christmas, and just haven't made time to go to the stores and use them. Also, I wanted to spend them on music, and Walmart's in-store selection is much worse than their online selection. So, partly inspired by the classic rock thread in the music/movies forum, I just ordered Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited, Cream - Wheels of Fire, Crosby, Stills & Nash - Deja Vu, and Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons Anthology. Transaction went very smooth. So smooth, in fact, I think I could really like shopping online. :D
So then I went to CC's website to do the same thing. I started really having a good time 'cause I was finding lots of CD's I really wanted, with great songs on them, and at great prices! I picked out Blind Faith - Blind Faith, The Beatles - Abbey Road, Yes - Close to the Edge, Ted Nugent - Ted Nugent, and ZZ Top - Fandango. I was really excited about getting these CD's! BUT when I hit 'checkout' and went through the process, I read that I can't use a gift card to order music online! What in the world is that all about?
So I just wrote down my list, so I guess I'll have to go to a local CC and see if they actually have all these CD's in stock. Is it not stupid to not allow people to order CD's online with a gift card? I just don't get that!
