Are you looking for an online store with great discounts on last minute Christmas shopping? Or do you just want to buy stuff for yourself using crypto?
I’ve done some research for you and surprisingly there is a good selection of online retailers from which to choose. Here is a list of my favorites.
Overstock has been a big proponent of crypto for a few years now, so it’s not a big surprise that they have an online store that accepts payment in crypto. It helps that they have huge selection of gift ideas and other useful stuff!
Read this excerpt about Overstock from a Cointelegraph article:
Overstock is widely considered to be one of the best shopping destinations for Bitcoin holders. For Christmas shoppers especially, this website is an absolute treasure trove, as it allows users to purchase items ranging from television sets to furniture to golfing equipment using crypto. Not only that, even the checkout process is seamless, since all one has to do is click on the “Pay with Bitcoin” button and follow the instructions.
Did you know that the former CEO of Overstock, Patrick Byrne, sold nearly 5 million shares of his stock holdings and then invested the money into gold and cryptocurrencies?
Before I started my crypto shopping research I had never heard of Alagoria.
Here’s a description from their website.
Alagoria is an online P2P marketplace that allows anyone to make a purchase on HomeDepot.com or Walmart.com and receive a 10% discount by paying with cryptocurrency. People with unwanted gift cards can also earn cryptocurrency with Alagoria.
On the bottom of every page, you’ll see our reviews on TrustPilot. These reviews are all done from users who have purchased from us in the past.
After perusing their website, I asked myself, are they trustworthy. So, I checked them out at Trustpilot and their reviews are extremely good.
