When purchasing through Amazon, the buyer is dealing with an individual seller. Shipping details and other stipulations are listed with each item. In order to compare shipping costs, if any, you are required to have an Amazon account. Although I have not made any purchase through Amazon, I have looked for products that I have purchased elswhere for price comparison and  honesty of customer reviews. I have, in the past, compared customer reviews about a product with reviews elsewhere. I would feel safe in relying on customer reviews at Amazon.  Amazon is not always the best buy, but worth using for price comparison.

I am interested in purchasing bar stools in the future and I am also a big Amazon shopper, thanks for the great comparison prices!

Ranked #29 in

So far, I am not a big fan for shopping at Amazon. But, it does pay to do price and shipping comparisons. I may find items cheaper at Amazon, but the shipping costs raise the price make the overall cost more expensive, at least it did for what I was looking for. However, the shipping costs have a lot to do with total cost no matter where you purchase your item and this is what people often do not take into consideration. They think product x for $10 at one site, is a bargain because others are charging 15 or 20 for identical item. Problem is that if the cheapest merchant charges another $15 for shipping that bargain 10 item now costs $25 at least, yet other places offer free shipping or a lower cost of shipping so the more expensive item may be cheaper when it only costs $5 to ship it, making a total of $20. Then again, some people will pay a few dollars more, especially if the shipping time is 3-5 days rather than 7-8 days. I do like Amazon in the respect that you know whether the item is in stock or not, before you place your order, rather than a week of two of waiting, only to find out your order is on back order and ETA is unkown which I found with Target.

Now these would make a stylish addition to any home... and you've given Barstools a glowing review. Well worth a look!

Thank you Ann. Yes, they are worth taking a look. There a lot of unique stools. The parent company also has the site set up so that you can look at other products, including baby products directly from the barstool site. The founders have used a unique idea. Rather than have one store site, they have created one site per line of products.

Brillant piece of work.
