This is pretty awesome. I have Amazon Prime. But with some of the cheaper/lighter items, they are classified as an "Add-on Item", which means that your order needs to be a minimum of $25 for you to be able to check out. I just had an order where I was $0.04 short of $25. Using this website, I was able to find a "filler" junk item for $0.10, thus allowing me to checkout.

I've never understood why people would need this service. Surely for the cost of adding random crap over the course of a year, you'd be able to justify paying for Prime and not having this issue. As for @_jacksmith's answer, I also have Prime and haven't had this problem, though we use Subscribe And Save quite heavily, which picks up the small add-on items.

@JadoJodo You still run into this problem with Prime. It is an issue if you don't subscribe

Such a simple but good idea! Would obviously love to see a UK version :)

Recommendation: add ability to connect with your Amazon account, so that first it searches your wishlist for any items that fit that description. Too often I've looked in my wishlist to see if there's anything I wanted to buy for only a few dollars. This step would also eliminate the feeling of buying crap or something you'll just throw out when it arrives.
