Purchases of the days.

From the February 19 and 20, 2013 Amazon Associates Earnings Report:

(13 copies) "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" [Kindle Edition] Susan Cain (Author) (Earnings to the Althouse blog = $11.06)

(11 copies) "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" [Kindle Edition] Susan Cain (Author) (Earnings to the Althouse blog = $10.19)

... and 164 other items purchased — at no additional cost to the buyers — all of which convey the quiet, contemplative, good-listener message to the blogger that... shhh... shhh... shhh...

Thank you.

Why two different payoffs? Two different market prices at which the book was sold on those two days?

Meade said...

13 copies one day; 11 copies the next.

I did it! It was my witty and brilliant comments that earned these monies!

But I am humble. I demand nothing. Enjoy your bounty.

Rabel said...

The prices are higher now. The bulk purchases automatically pushed up the price?

Supply and demand curves controlled by Skynet. What could possibly go wrong.

Rabel said...

Maybe not. A little late for math.

Ann Althouse said...

I bought the book too. I'm interested in introversion, and it seems like a lot of other people here are too.

SnapSnatch Porn"

It's all about the Girl's, not about the guys Wonder why that is. Hmm. Maybe there is a difference.

Oh man, I bought a book for 36₵ and totally spaced the portal.

I love those used books. You can find one that says "excellent" then get that one. I like to read them then drop in the slot with a note saying not to read it and describe why it's a rotten book filled with nonsense crap and reject it for ridiculous reasons, ask them to dispose it, then sign it by someone in history like Genghis Khan.

Which they'll take for a recommendation. Like reverse psychology.

Incidentally, those ladies in there treat me very nicely. A few days ago one told me to wait, she exited then returned and handed me a bead necklace. She said that she went to a pow-wow, saw the Indian necklace, thought of me and bought it. It's quite garish and not what you'd expect at all. There were two ladies there that day and they were both quite excited that I put it on. They suggested it for a rearview mirror or something. It's a beaded hummingbird.

Meade, I asked Amazon about that hoslter purchase:

"I'm sorry for the frustration this order has caused you.

I've reviewed your order, #XXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX, and can confirm that the order was credited to the Associates account.

You are welcome to use your Amazon Prime membership when ordering items through an Associate's link.

When you start your shopping session on an Associates website, your qualifying order will be credited to the Associate's account. You won't receive a notice when an Associate has been credited with their purchases, but the order will be credited appropriately.

I hope this helps. We look forward to seeing you again."


So I guess I won't worry about it any more :)

The top 10 upcoming movie releases on DVD are all fresh picks... and so are the week after that.

I don't remember ever seeing that.

The intorversion book is a good one, Professor. I had a hardcover on pre-order.

Astro said...

Pretty slick sales gimmick.
Run a video that mentions a book in passing and cha-ching! the Amazon portal rings up the sales.

Now I just gotta figure a way to leverage that, too.

@Lauderdale Vet,

Shepherd Leather "Conceal Mini"? I see it now. Thanks!

@Meade

Some day soon I'm going to buy a full-size 14 rifle gun safe, delighting in the free Prime shipping, offering condolences to the UPS team, and wanted to make sure this was squared away aforehand :)

Meade said...

Delightful, LV. Thanks in advance.
