I was on Amazon today and i stumbled across the little gray box under ‘Returns & Orders’ that lets you see past orders from every year you’ve been a member (I’m Prime but it might be the same for non-Prime, I’m not sure).. I’d never messed with it before, but out of curiosity i clicked on the earliest year listed, 2005, and saw that the very first thing i ever ordered from amazon.com was a special edition DVD of my favorite movie, Jerry Maguire.. Apparently it wasnt available at Best Buy, since that’s where i typically purchased DVDs back then.. Looks like i paid $25; i was dismayed to see that if I’d just waited another 15 yrs, that same special edition DVD is now only $7.95!

Was also interesting, to me at least, to see that from 2006-2010, i only ordered exactly three more items from Amazon: a Samsung Bluetooth earpiece in 2007, and DVDs of L.A. Story and Singles in 2008.. then I started ordering pretty regularly around 2011/2012.

What’s your earliest Amazon purchase, and when?

You don't find it the least bit ironic that people lambasted Wal-Mart (who I am no fan of) for killing off mom-and-pop stores decades ago, are now willing to support an entity that will likely kill off other retailers for a bit more of convenience?

Oh, but you can stay on my lawn; I'm cool with that.

Back in the summer of 2005, I had a group of co-workers that told me they had just bought tickets for the premiere of Star Wars Episode 3 at midnight and asked if I wanted to join. Being a young intern at the time living in a new city and just trying to fit in, I decided to go. I had seen the prior movies before once or twice, but never really got that much into Star Wars and really could not remember very much of it, but decided at worst, I will go just for the team-camaraderie/make new friends aspect.

Prior to that, I had saw the previous two prequel entries fairly recently, but as mentioned, I was just a casual fan that didn't really understand much of anything that was going on in the films. So I went with them to see Episode 3, and it absolutely blew me away; I did not remember much of Star Wars from my past, but seeing Vader in the flesh put the helmet on for the first time reeled me in and I wanted to learn more.

On their advice, once I was able to afford them, I bought the original trilogy movies to re-watch them, which I had not seen since I was probably 10 or so years old. Ever since that time period, I have been hooked on Star Wars even to this day, though I’d like to forget the latest two disaster installments.



Cool thread...I had to go back and look at my order history, because I did not have a clue. This brought back a great memory.

All the President's Men by Bob Woodward on June 1, 2005.

I had no idea why and just Googled it and it turns out that is the year that Mark Felt finally admitted that he was Deep Throat. So I guess I had a spoiler?

Let's do ebay next, lol
