In Feb 2021 Amazon still does not regard the NOT operator. So the workaround is indeed to use Google Search with e.g. site:amazon.com lightbulbs -led Of course, you don't have the sorting of Amazon anymore.

You can tweak the other answer's link to get directly at the promotional credit. (You must be signed into your Amazon.com account first.) Just append to the link https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?ie=UTF8&docId=1000296831 &gcIsProcess=0 This will cause the Credit Balances to instantiate without any clicking. Additionally, to automatically ...

Append the following to the end of the URL in order to have the items with the most reviews at the top: &s=review-count-rank It doesn't give exactly the behavior you are requesting, but it should make it easier to find products with a substantial number of reviews. You can create a bookmark to your browser to do this for you, enter javascript:window....

Using special characters is a method to tell the browser to use UTF8 encoding, and this probably is Amazon engineers putting in a bit of an easteregg instead of a dull utf8=✓ thing. For the record, all non-English versions have an __mk_{languagecode}_{countrycode} as URL parameter, the only one I found to differ from the ÅMÅŽÕÑ thing is the Japanese version,...

If you're looking for a more stable link, I recommend you use: http://www.amazon.com/mp3redeem Amazon publicizes this URL in emails as follows: For redemption instructions and additional information, click here http://www.amazon.com/mp3redeem. Since its publicized, and it looks like a marketing URL, I'm guessing Amazon will ensure this link always ...

As of July 2015, at least there is no reliable way to use a NOT operator. At least on Amazon.de searching for hard drive -usb will reduce the number of USB drives, but already the last result on the first page contained "USB" in the title. Searching for tischventilator -usb (German for table fan) on the other hand pushes usb devices even more to the top ...

I'm curios why Lam Chau's helpful answer in the comments to the OP is not listed as an answer: amzn.to/mp3-balance easy to remember short link: amzn.to/mp3-balance :) – Lam Chau Oct 6 '12 at 3:10 It's been working for years and is basically a short link to what adam and Senseful answered above (showing breakdown of credits into categories including ...

You can't directly share your shopping cart directly, I mean you can't share links of your cart by anyway because of security. So most usual and used way to do that is by sharing your 'wish list' or you can use an extension like Shopping Cart Share For Amazon

In case anyone is still looking for a solution to this problem, I created a browser extension called "All Prices" that lets you easily see all the price options for each color, style, etc. of an item. You can find it on the Chrome Store or as Firefox Extension!

Had the same issue recently and didn't find a solution. So, I made a cart sharing extension for Chrome browser. Here you go: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/amazon-share-a-cart/peiobddfomnijgoblelfdmjblplojcoe

Click on "Accounts and Lists" near the top right-hand corner Click "Your Account" Look at the "Ordering and Shopping Preferences" box and click on "Your Amazon Profile" Click on your review under "Community Activity" Note: If there is nothing there, your review is still being processed

I found the button class for the 'Want to Read' button and looped through and clicked them all by running this Javascript in the console. var buttonArray = document.getElementsByClassName('w-button-common w-button-unfollow'); for(var a=0;a<buttonArray.length;a++){ buttonArray[a].click(); }

Old question, I know, but I was looking for an answer myself and found that you can do exactly this when you search Amazon via http://so.cool. It has a Kayak-like slider to the side of search results using which you can only display search results that have the minimum number of reviews that you provide.

The thread you refer to is 76 months old as of today (3/19/2014), dating that post to 2007. It seems that the text stats feature was removed at some time during 2012. Curiously, Amazon's help page still mentions the text stats feature. Hovering over the cover of *some** books with the "Look Inside" feature enabled will bring up a popup that offers some ...

Now you could do this with https://waatcher.com. You just search for the item you want to buy, set a target price and Waatcher will buy it for you when the price drops below your set price. Waatcher also have a dashboard where you can track all the products that you are buying with a price change feed. There is a price history report, deal estimate and ...

This isn't visible in my Account menu. There is a Tab in the .com version called My browsing history, but not in the .co.uk implementation of the site. In neither case could I find what I know I have browsed for.

I have stuttering issues with Silverlight 5 in Netflix, especially after Silverlight updates. I figured out that it is a combination of settings and the video card driver being used. Silverlight does not play nice with HD or 3dp video card drivers. Try these steps if your video in Silverlight seems choppy, stutters, audio gets off, or the image looks like it ...

Your best option would be to simply create a new developer account and sign up for S3 again with a different ID. This would appear to be a clear Amazon bug and I doubt there's anything that can be done by anyone except Amazon technical support.

Well, there are many reasons. This has been brought up before. Let me provide a low down (I currently work at Amazon for process improvement and web development). The algorithm we run takes into account several factors when determining shipping costs: Weight of the item Size of the item Where the items are shipping to (Alaska costs more than California for ...

Amazon Product Advertising API License Agreement prohibits use of the Reviews data for any purpose other than driving sales on the Amazon Site. So I doubt if any site can lawfully provide the aggregated info. You may have to scrape & compile it yourself for your personal use by utilizing Amazon's consistent URL pattern for a product review page of each ...

Here is the correct order of steps with accurate menu labels as of Feb 2020: On the upper right hover (don't click) on "Hello USERNAME". It will open a menu. Select "Your Account". This will open a new page. Go to the "Ordering and Shopping preferences" and select "Your Amazon Profile".

Amazon has this to say about accessing the full site from a mobile platform: How To Access Amazon.com Full Site: If you routinely use the full Amazon.com site rather than this mobile site, you may wish to bookmark the URL www.amazon.com/fullsite in your mobile browser.

I was having trouble getting from a mobile version of a product link to the full site on a PC. I eventually discovered that changing the /aw/d/ section to /product/ retrieved the full site. I don't know if this will work for a mobile browser. for example: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00AX4YF6I to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AX4YF6I the ...

The easiest way is to add &emi=ATVPDKIKX0DER to the end of your search. Just perform your search, then click in the address bar and paste that at the end and hit enter and you'll get only items sold by Amazon. If you want a shortcut to do this, right-click on your bookmarks bar in Chrome and choose "Add Page". For the name call it something like "...
