Hey! Give It Back! I Wasn't Done Yet!
Today I hopped onto J. Crew's website to check out the new arrivals and Holiday Gift Guide, and was startled to find my shopping cart empty! What!?! Why, J. Crew? What did I do wrong?
J. Crew is one of those wonderful sites that allows you to save your cart between shopping sessions. Therefore my shopping cart is rarely empty, unless I've just made a purchase. I use my cart to "bookmark" items that I love, and keep a running tally (should I decide to pull the trigger and make a purchase). The holidays are coming, and I have been adding lots more than usual to my cart, creating a J. Crew Christmas "wish list". As of last night, my shopping cart contained almost $2,000 worth of items (yikes!). Needless to say, I am very disappointed, and actually a bit sad to have lost them all. True, I wouldn't have ended up purchasing every single item, but is that really so bad? Is there some shopping cart code of conduct that I'm unaware of? I feel like a shopper at Target who wandered away from her buggy for a moment, only to find that a sales clerk has taken the cart and put everything back on the shelves. Not fair!
Has this happened to anyone else? Is your shopping cart empty this morning?
