So, my question is why doesn’t Costco.com use Fulfillment by Amazon? Here’s the reason I’m asking this question: When I recently purchased a new Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR from Amazon.com, I also wanted to buy an accompanying 16 GB CompactFlash memory card to use with it.
[Update: a correspondent recommends the Transcend TS32GCF133 133x 32GB Compact Flash Card instead for the Canon 5D Mark II.]
As it turns out, trying to buy this simple memory card sent me back down one of my least favorite Amazon.com “rabbit holes” – that of not being able to find the item I’m looking for as being sold directly by Amazon. Instead, Amazon presented me with listings from a bunch of third-party sellers who are selling this memory card through the Amazon platform. Grrr.
