is it just me or is the I own it box on items gone now? I remember them being there and now I don't. I got a new blu ray and I wanted to add it to my collection so that it could adjust my suggestions. Anyone else experiencing this?

I just searched a television I already own and the "You purchased this on ....." banner was still there. Maybe that's not what you meant.

I don't see it anywhere. But I noticed the "like" button showed up recently. I hope Amazon isn't abandoning a star rating - "like" doesn't come close to what even 5 stars lends for a gradient scale.

"Like" is so Lame of Amazon. Why drive traffic to facebook at all? The whole single click to endorse a product is way over rated. If I truly like a product I will take the time to talk about it in my own words to "sell" my friends on it.

I couldn't find it either and emailed customer service and got the following response:

"Unfortunately, the option "I own it" checkbox on the product pages is no longer available on our website. I'm sorry if this is not what you expected.

I know this has been a disappointing news for you, I'll be sure to bring this to the attention of the appropriate people at our company.

We value your business and hope that you will continue to consider Amazon.com for your online shopping needs."

You can still do it, but it's through a search rather than on the page itself. Here is the link:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/rate-it

Thank you for the link, Cricket!

Until I found this thread I thought I was going mad. The box just up and disappeared between two visits.

I agree, it seems lame that they removed the "I Own It" button.

I successfully used http://www.amazon.com/gp/rate-it to find items and mark them as "I Own It", but I also discovered that if you have items in your wishlist, then when you delete the item, you are asked to mark if you own it and give it a rating. I wish I had known that before I used the rate-it search first, but doing it through the wishlist is actually really helpful for me as well.

When you mark the item "I Own It" in "rate these item". After that, Re-search your item once again. You will see your Item will not mark "I Own It".

"I Own It" just make these item in your recommend menu but not warn you anymore about you have own this item. Incase you forgot or not remember, It's risk to repeatedly buy this item.

When I mark the "I own it" checkbox on the http://www.amazon.com/gp/rate-it, it doesn't seem to save it. When I search for the item again, the checkbox isn't marked off.

Also, none of the items I've marked "I own it" via the http://www.amazon.com/gp/rate-it or by adding then deleting something from my wishlist to mark the "I own it" checkbox appear in My Media Library. I don't think Amazon is saving the items I mark a "I own it" which is too bad. I liked going to My Media Library to make sure I wouldn't re-buy anything I already owned.

I would like to ask Amazon Staff, Is it possible to use old style of "I own it".???

I'd like to have the "I Own It" checkbox/rating back on the product main pages, too!

I have lots of stuff that I already own on vinyl/CD/DVD that I don't want to see on "Recommended for you." I've been collecting/buying/WORKING in video and music stores long before Amazon existed, and I liked their previous way to "add" my "library" -- straight from the product page.

After you mark items in the rate-it wizard - go to the "Items you've rated" page and you should see the new items at the top of the list with the star ratings you put in and the I-Own-It check box. AFAICT, the wizard isn't tied to your account - it's just a tool to input data.
