Just placed another order...no gift cards, but one shipment is coming from Germany... i do a lot of online shopping as I am sort of a hermit...

How often do you get reports skb? Does your report say what I bought? That is a bit invasive of my privacy...

No.

I had asked them the net commission on the Gift Card that you had mentioned. I got an email with a link to their policy statement showing the list of items which do not qualify for commissions. Kindle e-books & Gift cards were among that list. There were some other items which do not qualify, but I don’t remember right away.

I shop a lot on Amazon. So OK if the gift cards don't count, sorry,  but I bet most of what I buy does!

Same here, and I've swapped out my old generic Amazon link for this DP one, so all the other stuff I get should count for us.

Thanks everyone, for using the link. I’m sure DP’s 3rd year will be self sustained.

I also did all my Amazon shopping through our link.  My main PC broke last week and now I'm having to use my smaller laptop.  I haven't figured out how to disable the ad blocker for this laptop, but I'm still working on it.

Thank you all.

Based on the discussion about Amazon’s Prime Pantry, I’ve placed a link to the site in our Right Panel at the very bottom.

Thank you so much for the Prime Pantry addition to the right panel.  It makes finding the Prime Pantry so much easier.

I wonder if Amazon 'misses' an order here or there?  I say this because I just received an order from Amazon today in addition to one I received several days ago.  My computer has been very naughty so it might be with my system too.

I got a spam email that was downright threatening and I made a copy of it and then deleted it.  Sort of scared me.  :(
