Find Out How Much You Have Spent on Amazon Since You Opened Your Account

You can buy anything on Amazon, which means that most of us spend a lot of money on the site . If you’ve ever wondered how much you’ve spent since opening your account, this video from Business Insider shows you how to find out.

Amazon allows you to review your spending over time, and this option reverts back to the first year you opened your account. While you can’t see the totals directly from your account, you can download the report and use a little spreadsheet magic to see your totals over the years. Business Insider walks you through the process in the video above, but it basically boils down to this:

In your account, go to the “Download Order Reports” section in the order history. Select the start date as January 1 of the year you opened the account (it will go back to the farthest calendar). Download the report, then import it into a spreadsheet. In the last transaction, use the SUM function, then select the entire column and press Enter.

It’s mostly just fun to watch, but it also sheds light on how much costs add up over time. Overall, the tool is an easy way to get reports of your purchases, which can be helpful if you need to track your expenses. Try it yourself by watching the video above.
