|''Amazon Customers Vote'' Returns, Offering Customers Extraordinary Deals for the Holidays|
| Six Rounds, Eighteen Ridiculous Deals, Each Round Only One Deal Can Win
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 15, 2007--For the second year in a row, Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) will let customers vote to decide which amazing deals are offered for the holiday season. "Amazon Customers Vote" starts today, featuring six rounds of incredible deals customers can vote on at www.amazon.com/customersvote. This year's products are among the most popular of the season, and similar to last year's "Customers Vote," the deals go well beyond traditional holiday discounting.
"Customers loved the great deals they found on Amazon Customers Vote last year so it is back by popular demand," said Craig Berman, Amazon.com spokesperson. "Amazon Customers Vote is a fun way to allow customers to choose the deals they want for the holiday season."
Customers can vote today for one of three remarkable deals in each of the six rounds. Claim codes will be randomly distributed to customers who voted for the winning deal in each round. Those who voted for deals that did not win will be randomly selected to be able to purchase their chosen items at not-quite-as-good, but still incredible discounts. Voters must return to the Amazon Customers Vote page on each round's Buying Day to see if they have been provided a claim code.
