Amazon needs to work on its suggestion algorithm

I love Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program, its been great for having things like toilet paper, toothpaste, and other household necessities delivered, which in turn means less trips to the store, where a run for cat food inevitably turns into a $200 trip. My only complaint is the seemingly endless way products pop in and out of the program, forcing me to revise my orders monthly.
Amazon tries to be helpful when this happens by listing a similar product in the cancelation email that I may want to use as a substitute. A recent discontinuation
of a certain Herbal Essences shampoo prompted them to ask if I’d like to subscribe to Pantene instead. Sure, why not?
This email I got from them last weekend however makes me think they have a long way to go when it comes to the products they suggest. Somehow I don’t think this would work for us 😉

What is Going on With Walmart.com Today?

I don’t often order stuff from Walmart.com, but today I was looking for something I need to get for going back to work, and Walmart actually had the lowest price. (Cheaper than Amazon?? I know right! I was shocked too. For once Prime didn’t save the day.)

I went to check out, only to get the following error message –

walmart

I got a giggle because the error popped up when I was trying to select a payment method. If Walmart is retiring having to pay for the items you order, I’ll be quite happy to play along. In the meantime, can we get this fixed please? 😉
