    If it is only 11%, I don't see that as a great advantage. You still have to pay for shipping, aren't able to touch and see the product up close, would have a harder time returning an item etc.

     

    I use amazon for things I can't get in my local area, or for things that I know there can't be much variation in product offerings.
