I just made my Amazon Wish List private until I get a PO Box, because I found out that some 3rd party vendors (not Amazon) send your shipping address in their confirmation emails, even if your Amazon settings specify to keep your address private.
Comments solicited on this issue, please! Assuming I get a PO Box:
Is it worth it to list specific items on a Wish List and risk having a caller know your PO Box? My husband could check it once a week on his way elsewhere, but would I worry about it?
Or should I only list specific items on my Wish List if I’ve checked with the vendor first to ensure they respect Amazon’s privacy settings?
Or only have one item on my Wish List: an Amazon Gift Card — then use gift cards to buy things for myself, and send pictures? I know that doesn’t put your address at risk.
Ugh – not the fun part of the job.
