BUY.COM® MAKES TOP 50 U.S. INTERNET PROPERTY RANKING
comScore Media Metrix names site one of top 50 for November 2003

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. December 10, 2003 - Buy.com, Inc., The Internet Superstore™, was named one of the Top 50 U.S. Internet Properties for the month of November 2003. The announcement was made yesterday by comScore Media Metrix, based on number of unique visitors.

“We’ve had a great holiday season, which started on Thanksgiving weekend and has continued steadily ever since,” said Neel Grover, president of Buy.com.

Buy.com attributes its Top 50 ranking to:

  • a new Toy Store -- launched in early November, the company’s most successful store launch this year
  • Extended Shipping Deadlines – order by Dec. 22 for guaranteed Christmas delivery (versus last year’s Dec. 19 cut-off date)
  • an easy-to-use Holiday Gift Guide -- allows shoppers to sort by recipient, price, etc.
  • the convenience of Gift Certificates – both hard copy and email
  • Special Shipping Offers – many orders placed between Dec.18-21 may qualify for Second-Day Air for just $3.99.

Buy.com was also just named one of Internet Retailer’s Top 50 web sites for 2003. This is the second year in a row that Buy.com has made the Internet Retailer Top 50 list.
