Amazon and its crappy shipping

This past weekend, I ordered a couple things off Amazon: a watchband, a video game, and two CDs. They arrived in the mail today and the watch band was wrapped in bubble wrap in a box, whereas the CDs and video game were packed together in a bubble mailer. And the cases of the two CDs were, of course, cracked. Logically, shouldn't it have been the other way around? Is there any rhyme or reason to what gets put in what kind of mailer at Amazon? It seems like now, everything I ordered from them is coming in one of those crappy yellow bubble mailers instead of boxes like they used to ship stuff. And its not just Amazon; the last couple times I ordered from DVD planet, they shipped my stuff in paper mailers too. I know there's cost involved in shipping, but shipping stuff in boxes can't cost that much can it?

The complaining about Amazon thread

Unless you want to just make it a general shipping complaint thread.

Woops, did not see that. Sorry. I knew there was something like that around here. I'll post my bitching in the appropriate thread. The mods can go ahead and delete this one.
