Some of them I’m particularly fond of and want to either repurchase or recommend to a friend… but I can’t do easily because Amazon won’t help me. You see, I’ve not been able to figure out any way to search through my purchases; it seems I can only browse by year (and paginatedly browse at that… ack!).
I bought an amazing compressible travel pillow (below) a while back that I absolutely love, and I wanted to encourage my parents to get it for their upcoming trip to New Zealand :
[oops, pillow seems to no longer be listed on Amazon, and graphic was just showing a generic Amazon ad. Blech!]
…but couldn’t find any sane way to look up the product.
– I tried doing an Amazon search for “travel pillow” but there are hundreds if not thousands of travel pillows in their store.
– I then tried searching through my gmail (where I get my Amazon order receipts) for “travel pillow” but that didn’t turn it up.
– Somewhat randomly, I then searched Amazon for “orange travel pillow” and that did the trick.
Amazon, why do you make this so difficult for your active customers? Why not a simple search box in the My Orders screen?

Looks like Amazon no longer sells this pillow. Bummer!
