Re: Amazon Deal of the Day

This isn't about a deal per se, but it does tie into Amazon. When I was doing research for my new External Hard Drive, I ventured into my Order Details page within my account. You know the dropdown menu where it says "Orders the last 6 months" section? Well, I always thought that Amazon only kept the last 6 months of activity on your page and after that it auto-deletes like most other sites (eBay is the one I'm pointing my finger at). In the 15 years I've shopped on Amazon, I never investigated beyond the '6 months' thing. Well, I clicked on it and discovered that Amazon actually kept EVERY single order I placed over the years and it was mind-blowing to see my very first purchase along with the price I paid for it and everything else that followed. I went through each year and looked at each item I bought. It was fun while at the same time making me shake my head at some of the things I ordered at such ridiculous prices, which in the day were actually amazing deals. But when you compare those prices to today, they are still grossly overpriced. Ack!!!!!

FYI, I'm sure this is all common knowledge about Amazon keeping all your orders on file and you have known about this for the last 15 years. D'oh!
