    Do you do most of your shopping online or in store?

    I am still an in store girl.

    My wife is an in-store shopper and I am an online shopper. I look out for the deals online and she usually enjoys the in-store Christmas shopping.

    I like to see what I'm buying, so most of my shopping is done at the store. I have bought online though

    I am at about 90-95% online now...I have fond memories of going to sleep on Thanksgiving around 5-6 PM so that I could be up and out the house around 10, 10:30. Last year I didn't go out until the morning; everything else was ordered throughout the week leading up to Thanksgiving. The cash back apps and other rebates, steals and deals make online shopping very appealing to me.

    In a store, love the atmosphere during Christmas, although it is not like it used to be.

    Online except food. I am conflicted though as shopping locally is far better for the local economy. I just hate shopping though, not to mention the time it takes.

    I do most online now and I really appreciate the convenience of it. With kids, work and so much to do during the festive season, it really is so nice I can browse for ideas and make purchases from the comfort of my home without having to set aside time to make a trip into the city etc. I like that I can find the the best value for my money by comparing prices and reading reviews of the product is so useful when deciding!! I aim for the last week of November when there are week long Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday. I could not face the madness going in person to the shops during this time!

    The best part is when I do go out to the shops I am not pressured or stressed and I can enjoy the sights and sounds better.

    I do most if not all of my shopping online... unfortunately stores just can't seem to match the good prices and deals I can find and it comes down to budget for me. I do like to go to the mall during the season and just walk around for fun sometimes though.

    Do you find the shipping costs are reasonable when you shop online?

    I rarely pay shipping as most are free delivery. The times I do have to pay shipping it is well worth it as it is actually cheaper than parking fees in the city or even public transport. Parking is a nightmare in town.Generally I think the shipping costs here are reasonable but of course they can add up for someone purchasing from multiple shops. Sometimes the shops offer click and collect where you pay online and collect in store to avoid delivery charge. I do this sometimes and collect after work.

    The convenience of shopping from home and having it straight to my door is priceless!

    I now have a Prime membership with Amazon, a lot of the shipping is free. I will take advantage of that this year!

    Great! You can get just about everything on Amazon!

    One thing I will say is I wish shipping form overseas wasn't so expensive for us. There is so much stuff I would love from America but the shipping and customs tax is more than the item itself!

    Both. Online is so convenient, especially since I no longer get round very well. I like to be done with all gift purchases prior to Thanksgiving and then hit the stores in December for stocking stuffers and a chance to take in the Christmas sights!
