Amazon just removed the ability to search your own wish list. How incredibly dumb. In the past I have bought items that were added to my wish list many months before, but now this means I won't be doing that any more.

I left them some feedback about it via this page (which I could only find using Google, as there doesn't seem to be any links within their web site for it):
https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/rsvp/leave-feedback.html

They still kept the ability to search your past orders, but I don't know how long that will remain if the genius who removed the wish list search is still making these decisions.

How big is your wish list that you can’t just skim through it? Mine is only 20-30 items at any given time. No need to search when it’s only 1-2 pages

I made multiple lists for different things. I found that more convenient

Ditto. Though in general once something drops off my saved items into a wish list, I'll never buy it. I probably have a good 500 items on my lists, mostly books, but some absurdities like an espresso machine or pizza oven.

Hundreds of items. When I'm interested in something, I'll typically add 5 to 10 similar products to my wish list, then at a later date I'll spend time reading reviews and detailed specs before choosing one to buy. Or I may ultimately decide not to buy any because I don't want or need it any more.

Sure, I could have kept the list a lot smaller by deleting items regularly when I'm sure I won't buy them ... but with the search feature there was no need to do that. And I'm the paying customer, so it's their job to make it easier for me to find and buy items from them if they want to maximize sales with me.

And now that they've removed the search feature, it's more difficult for me to prune the list. For example, there might be some hard drives under 2TB on my list, but at this point they're too small for me to consider buying. With the search feature gone, I can't just search for "hard drive" to find and delete them.

Mine renewed the day before Bezos made his "I have no idea how to spend all these billions, better buy a spaceship" comments. Probably out after that.
