I have never used Overstock but if their prices and service are similar to Amazon I will be a new customer. Amazon will start charging tax this Saturday. Anyone here has experience with Overstock or currently an Amazon user and consider switching?

Not for me. Amazon have more sellers, and we have Prime, which includes the 2-day free shipping and free movies streaming. I've also used Overstock.com sometimes, but I think they don't have that wide selection of products. They both have very good customer service though!

One more note for Amazon users ...

Sticking with Amazon here. Free 2 day delivery has me hooked.

And...Amazon is currently building warehouses just outside of LA and SF so they can offer 1 day delivery!! And in some cases, same day delivery!

Yes, I'm a part of the "I want it NOW" generation, so this really appeals to me...

I'm sticking w/ Amazon as well. Prime rocks. A lot of time, the product already comes next day. I also use the online streaming, so, I look at it as either free streaming or free 2-days shipping, since the cost of Prime is cheaper than the cost of Netflix.

I wonder if specialty sites won't catch up with the shipping speed. I ordered some irrigation components from a dedicated irrigation supply site twice this week with free shipping for over $95. It was here in 48hrs both times, once by mail. This is to "lizardland".
