Free shipping on amazon.com

I like shopping on amazon — they’ve got a great selection and they’re super-reliable. But I am suspicious at how often my checkout tally comes out just below $25, which is the point at which their free shipping kicks in.

Fear not! There’s a site that can help you find items on Amazon that cost just those few pennies you need to bump your order over the limit. I’ve used this a few times before, and it works fine. I do feel guilty about tossing out the bit of garbage that I have to buy to qualify for free shipping, but what’s a guy to do? If there were some way of having them add a dollar to my order that they would then give to a charitable cause, I’d be all over that. Alas, they don’t appear to be that enlightened yet.
