Overstock.com, which offers up to 80 percent off the sticker price of items ranging from dresses to computers, has become a favorite bargain-hunting destination for many online shoppers. Yet the road was not always so smooth for the company. Unlike some of its e-commerce brethren, it did not have abundant startup money, and challenges abounded. Now, even though it has established a solid customer base, the company still is working to expand with bold initiatives. Will it manage to stay at the top, or could it end up as low as its price tags?

OverStock.com has some good deals but in shopping for several items I found them to be more expensive than many other sites online. I had a list of things to buy for a project that I am working on. 3 of those things were on sale at Overstock.com that where good buys. I decided to apply for their credit card program to get interest free financing. As soon as I did and paid for my first order the prices of the things I wished to buy sky rocketed. Now when I compare products online I can almost always get things cheaper somewhere else.

It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
