If you're like most of America, you do a lot of shopping on Amazon. After all, there are few things that you can't find there -- often at a better price than you can purchase locally. The one- and two-day free shipping offers make these consumer goods even more attractive, especially if you don't relish the idea of actually getting dressed and getting in the car to buy what you want in the stores. When a product isn't as-described or is just plain bad, Amazon also makes it easy to return them.
If you bought a dresser that had the potential to tip over and kill your child, you would want to know that vital tidbit of information. Yet furniture giant Ikea appears to have dropped the ball recalling their dangerous product.
For a lot of people, purchasing a product on Amazon instead of in a store is second nature. In these busy times, it's often much easier to "shop and click" at home in your pajamas instead of getting dressed and heading out to the store. Plus, returns are pretty easy and most Americans feel familiar with the industry giant, which makes it comfortable to use them for purchases.
