I’m going to introduce you the useful Online shopping Amazon to US local residents or International students who just come to North America. If you are a Amazon Prime Member. There will be “Free” if you are renting the books, movies, music, etc.. You will expect to get your huge furniture within two days or some fresh groceries within 1~2 hours.
