Quick one: Annoyance With Amazon.com

I have to say, the one thing that annoys me the most about Amazon.com is something with my wish-list. See, I have several hundred items on my wish-list. The rare times lately when I actually get ahead 10-15 bucks, I like to spend it on something from that list. I never buy new DVD’s or CD’s anymore, but I simply buy used items in the best possible condition (except in those rare cases when New is cheaper than Used, as what happened with a recent Merle Haggard CD. Yes, that Merle Haggard.)

The thing that grinds my gears is that you can organize wish-lists by New-Price, but not Used-Price. So, it will list an item that’s 5 dollars new (and $4.99 used) over an item that’s 7 dollars new (and $0.01 used). This is really annoying, since there are a good many items that sell for pennies used, and sometimes in pretty decent condition. If the CD case is all but destroyed, the paper inserts missing, but the CD is intact, I don’t care, I’ll buy it. One of the first things I do is either load that music into a player (legally) or put the CD into a folder in my car, and throw the case onto a shelf in my spare room. Either way, the paper inserts are forgotten anyhow. Once in a while a company, in an attempt to clear out inventory, will even sell new stuff for pennies. Good times.

Anyhow, there is my gripe. I hope enough others will feel the same to instigate a change in coding. Have a nice day.
