Post your favorite online stores - best service, best selection, etc.

This may have been done before - but post your favorite online stores and a brief review of their service. I love online shopping but am often wary of ordering from sites - any review is a big help!

My favorites:

overstock.com - we've ordered 2 chairs, a rug and a console table and the quality has been great on all three. . . and shipping is $2.95

They often run out of stuff quickly and I've missed opportunities to get things because I waited too long, but all in all I like using their online store.

I find amazon.com to be the best online retailer bar none for most general items.

www.rugsdirect.com - We bought 2 rugs from here . We received our orders within 4 days of placing them, no shipping, and great coupon code discounts. The prices are a lot better here than they are in real stores for the same exact rugs.

www.yourblinds.com - We ordered a couple Hunter Douglas blinds from here (cheaper than the quotes we got from other stores) and had no problems installing them ourselves.

www.bellacor.com - Great selection for lighting. It took about 2 weeks to get our lamps, but it was worth the wait because Fortunoff was asking double the price for the same exact lamps! The only catch is that the lamps had different names in each store, but they were identical models. The bad part is that they didn't give us tracking information so we had to keep calling them to find out where our lamps were.

www.overstock.com - We buy lots of odds and ends from here and everything has been good quality and really cheap. The last thing we bought was crib bedding for our baby's nursery.

www.amazon.com - Similar to overstock...we buy lots of odds and ends and we can't argue with free shipping and cheaper prices than other stores.

I have to order blinds for 10 windows - I'll definitely look into your recommendation!

I like overstock.com as well.

I've ordered a lot of bedding from smartbargains.com and have been very pleased.

Pottery Barn has the best shipping! Not price wise but you get your items so fast!
