CNET News Video: Tech Minute: How to create an Amazon Universal Wish List

1:04 /

Whether for a birthday, the holidays, a wedding or baby shower, it's convenient to create a gift wish-list so friends and family know exactly what to give you. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi provides some simple tips for how to create a wish list across multiple websites thanks to a few tricks on Amazon.

While Amazon has an exhausted collection of just about everything, they don't have it all. For those items you covet from other vendors you can now add them to your Amazon wish list. From Amazon's main page, click on the Wish List tab on the far right side, when the menu drops down, select Wish from any website. Now you could install the Amazon Wish List button to your browser. It works on Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome and even your iPad. After you click Install, you may have to restart the browser. But otherwise, you're ready to start using it. The Wish List button will appear differently in different browsers but it works the same. Now when you're shopping on another website, pull up an item you'd like to have and click the button. You can then choose an image for your item, add comments for your friends and family and then choose which list to add it: The Wish List, Gift List, Wedding Registry or Baby Registry. Sure might take the surprise out of a receiving gift. But this way, you get exactly what you want. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
