Recently found out an awesome Amazon URL Shortening Service, AmazonURL that will make it easier for the customers to share links with others as many of the Amazon’s links are very long and consist of loads of characters. Amazon’s shortened URLs are generated when a user pastes the Long Amazon URL and then this service converts it to http://amzn.to/xxxxxx So, for example, the long URL of Xbox 360 on Amazon is http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=xbox+360 and after using the AmazonURL service, it will then be converted into http://amzn.to/Nnv349. Awesome!
