Not bragging rights...rather a public shaming to put your wallet back in your pocket...or bragging rights if that's your thing.

Log-in to amazon.
Click "Recommendations" at the top of the page.
Click on "Improve Your Recommendations"
Scroll down.
Post total items you've purchased.

407 at the moment...a lot more than I thought, and I'm sure nowhere close to most others (I'm hoping waaay lower than others).

Vote for better thread title.

For more fun...post the first item you purchased on Amazon.

Or, if you're feeling gutsy...download your order history here...thanks Wasabi, more ways to feel like shit!

Edit-Ah, that's part of the reason, any apps I've downloaded from Amazon App store are listed as well.

go to order history report and generate a report for the year then in spreadsheet do a sum and you will get an exact number.

mine is just over $10k at $10025.80 so you should have me beat. Good to know :P

Added your suggestion to the OP.

I'm going to get the net total through three reports to-date.

160 items. Less than I expected!

And the first item I bought on Amazon was the Miyazaki 3 Pack (DVDs of Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, and Kiki's Delivery Service) in April 2003.

My first order is rather boring.
Amazon is still generating the report for all my purchases.

My first few orders on Amazon.com dating back to March 6th, 2002 were 'the Evil Dead: Book of the Dead' edition DVD, Dragonball Vol. 1 manga, Dragonball Z Vol. 2 manga and McFarlane Toys Movie Maniacs Series 5 Deluxe Boxed Set Alien Vs. Predator. The beginning of a bad habit with this website...

I have 500 items apparently. 1st order ever was in 2007, where I ordered a Jazz bust (seen here: http://www.amazon.co...s00_i01_details) and a Wheeljack bust.

I tried to do a spreadsheet and for some reason an apostrophe was inserted before the price of each item, so it won't SUM them properly. And find and replace wasn't doing me any good to fix the issue.

154, not bad. This includes a bunch of gifts and textbooks for when I was in college. First order was Maddox's The Alphabet of Manliness, a yaoi mangu, and another mangu. God help me.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

432 total purchases since 1998.

First purchase in October 1998.

First purchase was for two Dragonlance books.

I remember when Amazon sent bookmarks with the books you bought. Those were the good old days.

1048.

I've been using Amazon since like the mid '90s though.

ETA: Wow, I went back to item #1048 and it was only from 2001, the history didn't go any further back. So I've actually purchased a lot more than that I guess.

I don't think I'm doing it right. Then again I only started buying a lot of stuff after I found CAG, which was sometime last year.
