Amazon has allowed other retailers to use their site as a store-front for quite some time now, I suspect Amazon gets some sort of kickback from this so it pays off for them I’m sure. It seems they want to take control of the entire online marketplace now, which is perfectly fine by me. Having only one place to shop for all your needs sounds like paradise.
Did you catch that I hate shopping?
Either this is a recent development or I’ve been in the dark. You can now add items to your Amazon wishlist from any website. This is awesome! To do so, all you need is the Universal Wishlist Button. This is just a Bookmarklet, so if you don’t like clogging up your toolbar with links you use only rarely, just add it as a bookmark instead.
I took the liberty of adding a few ThinkGeek items to mine… If you’re wondering what to get me for my birthday (and you don’t believe in charity:water for some unknown reason) feel free to check out my lists.
But remember, I can already drink clean water. There are MANY out there who can’t. Please consider donating to those who need it. If you’d like more information, check out my previous post all about the September Birthday Charity:Water campaign.
DISCLAIMER: items purchased, NOT on any of my lists are subject to be sold and proceeds donated to Charity:Water. You have been warned. Then again, I might sell items ON the list and donate the proceeds…
