Use Amazon’s Wish List for Christmas?

This might be too late for this year, however did you know you could use Amazon’s Wish List for Christmas or Birthdays?

If you did not know, I have an Amazon Prime account and also use them for affiliates that help to pay for this web site. Do I make a tone of money from this effort? No, but it does pay for this site over time (so it all works out in the end).

If you did not know, with Amazon Prime OR just an Amazon account you can create a wish list. You can send the link to the list to anyone you want (OR) paste it onto your web site like this: http://a.co/0jrydhe (my girls list of items we did not get to for Christmas – feel free to order and send our way)!

Here are the overall instructions on how to use this functionality… You can also from a product page select “Add to List” when you are logged on to Amazon. Keep in mind, you can create a new list or add to previously created ones.

So on this product page for the Amazon Kindle Fire, click on “Add to list”. Now you can turn on the feature to share (listed below).
