    For 99% of the time, 'purchase' sounds pretentious. It's a 'long' word that some people seem to think sounds better than the simple 'short' word.

    It's OK in some business contexts, but in everyday contexts, we buy things, not purchase things.

    It could just be me - others might have different opinions.
