Amazon wish list addresses


A quick but severe warning to those who have Amazon Wish Lists and move house. Changing your Amazon address does not change your Wish List address.

To do this:

  1. Log into your Amazon account and go to your Wish List
  2. In the top–right corner, click "List Actions"
  3. Choose "Update List Profile" from the dropdown box
  4. Under "List 'ship to' address", change your address

Unfortunately, we learned this the hard way. Earlier this year, the Official Rubenerd Patron ♔ Sir Novak bought me a gift. Despite updating my Amazon address months earlier, it still shipped to my old one.

Thanfully, @JamieJakov pointed out the issue, and now we know why!
