How to hide an Amazon order from your purchase history

Two Amazon boxes kept together

Amazon keeps track of all your orders and lists them on the Your Orders history page. From here, you can reference your purchases, return items, leave feedback, and more.

However, there are situations when you might want to hide some orders from this area. For example, you may not want your spouse to see the gift you have ordered for them. Or you may like to prevent sensitive purchases from coming to people's attention with whom you have shared your Amazon account details, like your spouse, kids, or siblings.

If you're in a situation where you need to make a purchased item disappear from your order history, here's how to hide or archive an order on Amazon.

It may sound strange, but sometimes it’s not as easy as a button click to print the way we need to.

The survival guide to pre-ordering your iPhone 6

Unlike last year, Apple will let you pre-order your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus tonight, starting at 12.01 am PT. If our recent poll is any indication, it seems that almost twice as many people will pre-order the phone rather than wait in line next Friday to buy it directly from an Apple Store or one of the authorized retailers.

Pre-ordering has both its advantages and its drawbacks, so you should carefully weight your options before making a decision. To help you out, we've created this survival guide to pre-ordering your iPhone 6 where we share some simple tips on how to prepare for tonight.

iPhone 5s online orders to start at 12.01am PST on September 20

The iPhone 5c might already be available for pre-order, but for some reason, Apple will not let you pre-order the flagship iPhone 5s. We speculated why, but we'll probably never know for sure the reasoning behind this decision.

If it's been clear since this week's event that the iPhone 5s would be available in store on the 20th, the exact time hadn't been made official until today, when Apple sent an email to customers saying the iPhone would be available for order online at 12.01am PST (3am EST)...

Many iPhone 5 pre-orders seen shipping earlier than expected

If you pre-ordered your iPhone 5, either through Apple or your wireless provider, and didn't get it in within the first hour or so, chances are you haven't received the handset yet. Shipping estimates slipped to two weeks shortly after retailers began taking pre-orders last Friday.

But good news today for those of you that fall into that category. It appears that Apple has started shipping many "late" iPhone 5 pre-orders earlier than expected...

iPhone 5 shipping times fall to 3-4 weeks

Apple started taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5 last Friday at 12:01 am. And it wasn't 45 minutes after that, that people started seeing estimated shipping times drop from one to two weeks.

The Cupertino company would later announce that it sold 2 million iPhone 5s during the first 24 hours of availability. And apparently it's having trouble keeping up with the high demand...

Some iPhone 5 pre-orders to ship faster than expected

The iPhone 5 pre-order kickoff yesterday morning was fairly reminiscent of last year's launch. Apple's website, despite having months to prepare, quickly buckled under the influx of traffic, and more than half an hour passed before some folks could logon.

The real story though is how fast the initial pre-order stock of iPhone 5s ran out. Shipping times slipped from one to two weeks in less than an hour. Some people even saw their ship dates drop a week during the time it took them to place their order...
