Do you see this 3-layer bento lunch box
for sale online? One box in the stack is white with the yellow design, one is white with the orange design, and the 3rd box is white with the green design.

Is there a China-based Amazon-style shopping website that I use to send a gift to someone in Shanghai? One that I can use from the US and is in English?

I have fifty dollars to spend on Amazon, and I'm looking for ideas beyond books, ebooks, music, or movies. If you had had to pick 3-5 $10 to $15 dollar items that would make your life slightly better in some way, what would you pick?

I ordered this item
from Amazon.com last month and when I ordered it, I noticed that the shipping date was September 28-October 29. That seemed a little weird so I contact Amazon and the rep just confused me more. Do you know the inner workings of Amazon? Can you explain this to me? [more inside]

In advance of arrival of babies maverick (yes, twins), wifey and I signed up for Amazon Prime, to simplify what we actually have to go out for. My question for you is "What *should* I be buying with it?" [more inside]

What's worth buying at Amazon Grocery? I've never used it and they seem to have a totally random selection of stuff.

Amazon.com discount search? JungleCrazy
, a site that shows Amazon items with at least a 70% discount, has gone offline. Are there any other sites that let me search by discounts?

I enjoy finer things, and like to laugh at crappy stuff. Is there any way to search amazon to bring up the best or worst products (in a category or overall)? A list of "all 5-star products" would be too crude, so I'm thinking, search for the combination of higest rating with most reviews, or lowest rating with most reviews.

I am about to make a big purchase of books at amazon.com. Are there worthy non-profits or charities (a list perhaps?) I could give my commission to?
