It's based on a initiative called Schema.org. Google announced this feature for Gmail in May 2013: http://gmailblog.blogspot.dk/2013/05/take-action-right-from-inbox.html Quotes from the post (emphasis and linkifying mine): Email is an important part of how we get things done -- from planning an event with friends to organizing that family vacation to ...

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.)

Additionally, to automatically ...

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.

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,...

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.

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 ...

Add /?forceBR=5 to the end of the link in your browser.

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 ...

Thanks to this answer, I've discovered that amazon respects + before a keyword too! For example: Radeon +7990 will give you exactly 7990's results and not variations on models like 6990 or 7970 like it normally does.

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 ...

Kindle is the brand name of a range of e-readers and tablets (called Kindle Fire) produced by Amazon. Typically books bought as a Kindle Edition will be downloaded directed to a Kindle device attached to your Amazon account. If you want to read Kindle Edition books on a Samsung tablet or desktop PC then you'll need to download the Kindle app for your device....

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

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 ...
