I have a new theory.

Kevin Theory #32346.67-Z:

Amazon is in bed with UPS and receives kickbacks when they split an order into more than one shipment. I bought three books yesterday, all of them were listed as ‘in stock’. However upon checkout I was presented with the option to group my shipments to save money or ship items as they became available. It wasn’t clear which of the three was the holdup.

So I removed book A from my cart and tried again. B and C would both ship immediately. I added A and removed C – now A and B will ship immediately. I don’t need the books right away so I bought all three and had them shipped in one shipment. I got a shipping notification listing all three. Something isn’t quite right. Software oddity or conspiracy?

  1. Amazon is like that friend that thinks they know you but they really don’t as evidenced by their repeated suggestions I might like lesbian audio porn. My TiVo didn’t know me either so I broke up with it.

    I like Bookpool for tech books although I will forcibly admit to buying from the cheapest source.

  2. @crambosauce I thought you were a fan of lesbian audio porn. What *have* you been listening to?
