Thanks for Using the Amazon Widget

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:30 pm



Thanks once again to those who have been using the inflatable movie screen Amazon widget on the sidebar. It was gone and now it is back. Thanks for making it a habit again.

  1. How did I get from Amazon to eBay? I don’t think you’re going to get any money. I didn’t sign in at first. Now it’s directing me to PayPal. I am not sure what to do. Maybe start all over?

  2. I wanted to pay with Discover to get 5% cashback. And also use some points. Instead now (after trying to go here and there back and frtgh lookingh for an option to at least sue Discover, the sale seems to have been through as “Pay After Delivery (Jan 7, 2018)

    “We’ve already paid the seller, and the money will come out of your bank account on January 7, 2018.”

    I can live witgh that.

    Except I think it;s going to use the wrong bank account but I can put money in there. If not therE is backup credit card.

  3. I may have logged into eBay separately after it seemed my opurchase on eBay. (I realized that when my name and password on AAmazon didn’t work – since I was no longer on Amazon.

    eBay seems to hahave anew thing bad for the customer. If you wait too long to decide how to pay, it’ll make it Pay After Delivery. Which could cause a check to bounce.

  4. I think you may get the best price, both on eBay and on Amazon, if you search without logging in.

    (Not sure, but something like that maybe hapepned on eBay yesterday. This needs checking)

    Of course you can’t have cookies on that computer, or it’ll log you in.

  5. The check i wss worried about was cashed, but theer is still a very smnall one outstanding, The purchasd made on ebay is not recorded as an Amazon purchase. But another one is, for $18.79. Very usefuul for cleaning book cpvers and other things.

  6. I could have done better using the Sears card (which became Citibank Sears) because I’ve got a promotion for December and January of 11 times regular Thank You points for online purchases, (80 points = 53 cents when redeemed for Citi billpay. IIRC) while Discover had only 5% cash back for Amazon purchases from October through December.

  7. But I have to make aminimum of $50 in online purchases using the Sears card to get anything. Maybe better pay for amagazoine subscription with this.

  8. Seems like I can’t. Only mail or telephone (or check)
