TAMPA BAY, Fla- — Amazon has quickly become the world's largest online retailer and the most convenient shopping option for millions of its customers. But their usually fast shipping was heavily criticized over the holidays for not keeping up their end of their 2-day shipping promise.

That is when Kyle James with says his readers started asking what other retailers could match Amazon's large inventory and fast shipping. "A lot of people get caught up with Amazon and always think it is going to be the best deal but that’s not always the case anymore," says James who hunts for online bargains for his readers.

He says is slowly chipping away and trying to win over Amazon’s faithful. "They have millions of items and products on their website that come with free shipping on $35 or more," says James. He points to the fact that no membership required and Walmart has easy in-store returns that don’t require you to re-box anything.

And then there is "They offer 2-day shipping on $35 or more if you have their Red Card," James points out. Target’s Red Card is a credit card that gives customers 2-day shipping and extended returns.

It also gives 5% back on many purchases. James also found other big names are gunning for your business with free 2-day shipping. Names like Home Depot, Best Buy, and Sephora, all taking a page out of Amazon’s playbook and hoping to get their customers at the same time. For a list of more retailers, head to
