04:44 pm - Prime!
Pittsburghers, especially the CMU-based: apparently I have been good to Amazon.com, and I have fit their proper profile of "sucker"; I was offered a 3-month trial of Amazon Prime (free 2-day, $3.99 overnight). If you have a purchase to be made, in the next 3 months, let me know and we can work something out to take advantage of this.

Yeah, they offered me a free trial before Christmas. I ended up taking it as it made last minute Christmas shopping that much easier.

I can say that their trial is definitely doing its job - I would never have signed up before, but after using it a few months I can almost see myself doing so. The other interesting thing is that it affects your product choices - you'll eschew a product from a third party seller in favor of one sold by Amazon to get the Prime shipping discount.

Absolutely. I had not really thought about it, but one of the barriers to using Amazon was that $25 for free shipping thing. Otherwise, things cost (price)+shipping, which is rarely superior to local costs except used items. I now have an inclination to just buying single items when I think of them, rather than queue purchases up.
