Saving Time For Magical Moments By Shopping With PayPal

I've been shopping with PayPal for many years as it's just so convenient to do so. Initially I registered as it made picking up my occasional eBay purchases even easier but now with so many online retailers accepting PayPal at the checkout I find myself browsing the internet regularly to buy; everything from my groceries to new clothes and the latest gadgets! Why spend hours queuing in shops when you can buy pretty much everything from home?

With Christmas fast approaching I was contacted by PayPal who offered to pop quite a few pennies into my account to enable me to complete my Christmas shopping and share my experiences. As you may have already read, I saved lots of time by using PayPal so I had some magical moments with the Mini Mes making some yummy brownie Christmas trees and reindeer ginger biscuits.

There were plenty of other benefits too:

  • I didn't have to pay for parking or spend ages driving around busy multi-storey car parks looking for a space. I could sit in my fluffy slippers with a hot choc at a time that was suitable for me.
  • I didn't have to search aisle after aisle looking for specific gifts. I could use the search options on websites and add items to my trolley with ease.
  • I didn't struggle with heavy bags and boxes. Everything was delivered to my door.
  • I didn't have to squish into hot and overcrowded lifts. I could recline my seat and keep cosy under my blanket.
  • I didn't have to queue up and balance my shopping while taking my bank card in and out of my purse numerous times. I could click the 'Pay with PayPal button' and checkout quickly.
  • I didn't have to travel or use fuel. Everything was purchased from the comfort of my own home.

I always feel safe shopping with PayPal online as I don't need to enter my bank information on any websites I just need to enter my PayPal password. The little padlock and https pops up in the URL bar as PayPal is the secure way to shop. You can find out which stores accept PayPal on the webiste and there are hundreds!

I knew the Mr wanted a few new motorbike goodies including gloves, air filter, paddock stand, an all in one waterproof suit and a tank bag so I looked online and found all of the items on a motorbike store. I hadn't heard of the store previously, afterall I know nothing about motorbikes, but using PayPal I felt happy to checkout and they arrived the following day.

I managed to get a Kindle Fire HDX for Jamster for a bargain price, get Minxy a mobile phone and I purchased lots of other presents for family and friends and even treated myself on the Boots website to some new makeup ready for the party season.

I will definitely shop with PayPal again next year as it's the hassle free way to get your gifts.

WIN with PayPal

PayPal have launched a 'Win Christmas with PayPal’ competition where, if you choose to shop with PayPal, you could win what you spent on your Christmas shopping back (up to £1,000)! Each time you shop with PayPal you will receive another entry into the draw.
Good luck!
