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?

Oh wow. It’s the basis for my avatar. My first amazon purchase wasn’t until 2009, coincidentally, the same year I joined SR and my band was working on a Cirque du Soleil show.

First thing that I ever bought on Amazon, August 29, 2007 was a gift for my Dad.

It cost me $21.78, which would be about 0.2755 of one share of AMZN on that day, which would be worth.....$684.69 today. OUCH!!!

My dad is mentioned in the book.

So, I would have thought that I purchased stuff from Amazon long before this, but my history shows that my first purchase was this sword that I bought for my then 4 year-old daughter for Christmas:

2000 - 15 copies of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the novel, for students of mine who couldn't afford it way way back in the long ago when I was teaching in Baton Rouge
