Hey - So we are all on the same page.

I'm shilling Amazon services in this post. I do this for two reasons: 1) We receive money for purchases you make through Amazon if you go through our links. 2) These are cool services.

1) Amazon Grocery. Here's the scoop - we get $3 for each new Grocery customer we refer this month. If you buy something we also get a commission.

I've perused the site a bit and it looks like some of the purchases are for cases or multi-packs. It explains why it's $20 for something that is usually $3. I don't know how much I need to buy by the case, but it's an interesting idea.



2) The Subscribe and Save program. You can do this from the grocery section. The idea is that you can sign up for items that you routinely use. The brilliant one here is diapers. I'm assuming the price is fairly competetive already, but you can save up to 15% by choosing a subscription. I bet this is pretty handy - having a new supply of diapers come in the mail with no hassles has got to be a convenience - especially if it is cheaper than Babies R Us (Isn't that where you are supposed to get them to save money?)

3) Amazon Unbox. This has been out for a little bit, but I don't think I mentioned it yet. You can get downloadable video content through this. If you want to try it out, go here http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000035121 and get a free TV show with the purchase of any DVD. I don't think that is an affiliate link but it might be.

Unbox is cool because you can set it up to work with a TiVo. I have yet to get this working but it's only because we have 50 unwatched DVDs right now and about 20 games I need to finish. I plan on using this in lieu of PPV in the future.

Anyone used any of these features yet? I'm interested to hear about TiVo and Unbox if you've tried it.

Ohhh oh oh oh they sell Top Ramen (through Gristedes - God bless you, Gristedes) AND they have a listing for a case of Moxie (The W at Amazon). Amazon loves me even more than I thought she did!

EDIT: No, wait - it costs more to SHIP Moxie than it does to actually BUY Moxie. Booooooo

Odd.

A search for Moxie doesn't give any results - you must be getting that off of regular Amazon.

The stuff in Grocery appears to be eligible for free super saver shipping... Did you get in via my banner?

People will never be happy in these situations. If they replaced him, all these people with the John Ritter hyberbole would complain that he's irreplaceable. Now they kill the character off, and people complain that it's in poor taste.
