How do I purchase 10 ebooks all at once

If I buy 10 ebooks in one day, I don't want to have 10 entries in my credit card statement. Is there anyway that I could place 10 ebooks in a shopping cart and then buy them all with just one order?

There is no cart at Amazon, You can by a gift card to cover the 10 books and then use that to pay for them that way you would only have one credit card entry

They do have a cart, but not for ebooks. ebooks are "one click purchase" only.

This is why I always have a gift card amount available at Amazon. I hate a ton of small charges on my credit card!

Touche. I was just thinking of the ebooks and not the rest of the store. You have to wonder why they don't have a cart option for ebooks really. I don't often buy multiple books (unless they are offered free) but every other store I go to for ebooks does have the cart option.

At least for me they seem to not charge the card instantly so if I buy more ebooks in the next 15-30 mins the whole lot is bundled and charged as one order.

That said I don't mind if my credit card bill is delivered by parcel post so long as I have the clams to pay for it...

I do as the others have said. I purchase a $50 gift card and then post it to my account. Once I've drawn that down to about 3 or 4 dollars left, I purchase another gift card. I also ask for gift cards from friends and family for birthday & Christmas.

Can you squeeze all the money left from the old card by merging it with the new card and not losing a single penny? Like if you have 3 dollars left from your old card and you buy an 8 dollars ebook, you would be charged 3 dollars from the old card and 5 dollars from the new card.

Same for me. Based on previous accounts I've read, this seems to be more prevalent in the US than elsewhere.

If you have multiple gift cards available on your account, Amazon just keeps taking money from each until they are exhausted. Then they will charge your default credit card for any remaining balance.

I've often had a remaining balance of $0.01 on a gift card, and Amazon takes that last cent on the next purchase, and puts the balance of the transaction on my default credit card.

If I know I'm going to be buying multiple books, I stack them up on multiple Firefox tabs and click "Buy with 1-Click" one after the other. Mostly they show up as a single purchase.

You simply maintain a single balance of "gift credit" that you add to (or subtract from). You never lose a penny.

This seems to be a difference between amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. In the UK store each book purchase appears as a separate charge on my card no matter how close together the purchases are.

I've noticed that the amount charged appears different between Amazon.com and Amazon.uk as well. Of course I know the uk price is in either pounds or euro's but I have to wonder if that stays constant or fluxuates as the exchange rates change.

The price in £ will stay the same, but if you're paying in $, the $-equivalent that's charged to your credit card will certainly fluctuate with the exchange rate.
