And the shark! If you go deep, you run into sharks, but people and sharks usually don't mix!


Like Nodoubt said, your cookies were cleared, or, a lot of online vendors automatically empty your cart after a period of time [ranging from 30 min or so to a couple of days or a week.]

For them to accept money orders [or checks], they would need to have some sort of mail-in order rather than the secure credit card format. Do they accept checks? If not, then that makes sense. If so, hmm. I would think relatively few companies, especially online, do accept money orders. My coworker does rely on money orders [he feels safer using them], but to me it seems like overkill. Plus it would get expensive, even if you find them for .39/each or whatever. I actually would think they'd be *less* safe; at least with a credit card or a check you have a record, could stop-payment or do a chargeback; with a MO, it's almost like cash.

I don't think they were but why would it matter? Amazon's shopping cart stays for as long as you have an account there. But I ordered what I wanted from amazon, even if it's about $5 more. Screw DDD.

You would rather waste $5 than to waste 2 minutes by just re-adding the movies to your cart? How does that make sense..

Indeed.
If a long-lasting shopping cart is worth 5 bucks to you, more power to you.
But hey, it's a free market, and if that's a service you're willing to pay for, there you go!

Does DDD have a wish list, or just the temporary cart?

Yes, DDD does offer a wish list.

Well they’re out of stock items at DDD that I ordered. So I figured rather than keep checking DDD and reading to the shopping cart I just ordered them from amazon for immediate shipping.

As long as you're happy ....


I keep items in my DDD wish list until I'm ready to buy ..... isn't that what it's for?

Me too Marty. I have a lot on my wish list now. With my birthday coming up, I just print it out and hand it to my wife when she asks what I'd like.

Incorrect.
Items will remain in your Amazon Cart for 90 days only. After ninety days, it's cleared.

I think the cookies do matter because I had the same thing happen to me but I was able to find the items that I wanted to purhase again.

The cookies may be accessed after you log in. Perhaps. Give it a try.... I find my DDD cookies quite unstable. I always say "remember me" and on some systems it does more often than others....

Make a wish list through DVD Price Search, then choose DDD for the items that come up. Check on the link to DDD when you're ready to order. Yoll'll see a running tally as well as the prices at other online vendors.

It sounds like DDD was CENSORING your cart.
