Moseying over to Buy.com to get my brother a present, I find the Family Guy Season 3 DVD on sale. Anything animated will keep him amused, he is 20. I think they have good prices and I’ve seen postings about them before on deal websites. After 5 clicks I finally get the item into my cart and hold on to your seats because checkout here we go.
I literally have my credit card on my lap ready to type in the numbers when I see they want me to create an account. So I click “No, I am a new customer” because I just want to pay for the cartoons. When I hit the “checkout” button I figure I will be taken to my checkout page, but Buy.com has other ideas. It decides that I want to create an account. I just want to get this done so I enter my email, my password twice and a password reminder. Crossing my fingers I click “create account”, even though it’s the last thing I wanted to do.
Suddenly my browser window shows me this:
When the page reloaded I received an error telling me “You must accept the terms and conditions”. What else do they want me to do to make this order? Following their directions I scrolled down the page to accept the conditions by clicking the “create account” button and the page simply reloaded. Suddenly I realize the next logical step in my buying process is to go to Amazon and easily get the DVD.
