Amazon Add-on Items?

jc2008 2,360 1,355 July 24, 2012 at 06:10 PM More Amazon Deals
Has anyone figured out a way to search specifically for these? some of the things I have seen have been at a pretty decent price. I cannot figure out a way to just see them though in a search.

Thanks for any help on this.


(btw amazon add on items are like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Gillette-Ma...s=gillette

)

They are stipping Amazon Prime of any savings.

I still find tons of other things on amazon I end up ordering with prime that would never meet the 25$ mark. And im not patient at waiting.

Some of the addon items are too expensive for what they are, but i did find some add on items that were actually around walmart price so that is why i was wondering if there was a way to search this sort of thing.

Does Amazon ever do FAR software? I need to by a $15 replacement battery for my notebook but the $8 shipping kills the deal for me! Been waiting for weeks now,

I just found out about this today because the $4.47 headphones I was going to buy for a friend switched from Prime-eligible to being only eligible as an Add-On item. This item was definitely Prime-eligible as of July 27, 2012, as I have been keeping my eye on it for a few weeks now.

I just paid for Prime approximately two weeks ago, and it seems like they are making some major changes.

I sent them the following message:

Hello, I hope you are doing well.

Amazon's new Add-On Item for shipping purposes is rather ridiculous. I understand that Amazon may not be able to make as much money when shipping low-cost items, and it would make sense to apply the Add-On Item tag to products that were not previously Prime-eligible. However, items that I have been considering for a couple weeks and were Prime-eligible are now only eligible as Add-On Items. This is not what Prime was advertised as when I signed up. In fact, the statement read, "No minimum purchase required—order what you want, when you want it." Apparently, there is now a minimum purchase requirement.

Another negative thing to customers.

Amazon build more distribution center to save cost,

Amazon will collect taxes in more states.
