This wasn't on Amazon (maybe it was Danube ), but in looking for new Vintage 2011 SW figs (specifically the Echo Soldier), this was the category tree for it (once I clicked on the auction):
Toys & Hobbies >
Action Figures >
Transformers & Robots >
Yeah. That makes perfect sense.
I had a "personal" recommendation from a site, addressed to %% FIRSTNAME %%. Yes! That's me! I have a fir$t name, too! $ell me $omething now!
I had a local deals email the other day, a combo deal: gourmet popcorn at a sale price, and a 4-night trip to Cabo.
While not from Amazon, I got an email from a rewards program to a store at which I seldom shop for more than $20 total in a year:

Star Wars Fate of the Jedi #7: Conviction by Aaron Allston
Apocalypse: Star Wars (Fate of the Jedi) by Troy Denning
Star Wars Fate of the Jedi #9: Apocalypse by Troy Denning
Star Wars Fate of the Jedi #6: Vortex by Troy Denning
Star Wars The Old Republic #2: Deceived by Paul S. Kemp

A certain online website (yeah, you heard me ) keeps asking me if I am still interested in buying two specific items... that I already bought FROM THAT WEBSITE. No, I do not want to buy a second one of the exact same thing. You're welcome. It was funny and odd the first 2-3 times it came up; now it's just sad.
