    I've never even heard of the thing, and visiting the site I can't even find it. Looking at the homepage there's:
    - Advert for some Alexa thing
    - List of items I just bloody bought
    - Adverts for 'Prime benefits' that I already have
    - Wishlist items
    - Wrong-as-always recommendation crap
    - "Stuff from a brand you don't give a moneys about"
    - Dash buttons (I thought they'd retired them. And they have, they are not 'virtual buttons' that serve no purpose)
    - Recently viewed items AKA stuff you already decided not to buy

    Huh, so that's why sometimes I need to go into the "other sellers" section to find the Amazon-sold listing rather than merchant-sold.

    I've had it before where i added something to the basket that showed free P+P and clicked on the buy it button, or it could've been the one click order button, only to discover they used a different (cheaper) seller that wanted to charge £7-8 for P+P.
