A minor bug with searching for items in the reward gallery. More often than not, when you search for something nothing will come up and it shows it as there bing no items for that search query. (This happens in multiple browsers).

I know how to fix this manually because it's a thing to do with the URL, I have to delete a section of the URL (which I've put in bold below) and hit enter and the search works.

&category=All&minimum_price=&maximum_price=&submit=Find+rewards

For Example: http://www.points2shop.com/amazon/category?product=kingdom+hearts+recoded&category=All&minimum_price=&maximum_price=&submit=Find+rewards

This link won't show the items I want to see, But it I were to delete &category=All&minimum_price=&maximum_price=&submit=Find+rewards

and make it look like this:

http://www.points2shop.com/amazon/category?product=kingdom+hearts+recoded

then it works.

However, while this can be fixed manually, lots of new users won't know about this and I guess it would be alot easier to fix it than to try and explain it to people all the time :)

Right, I'm bumping this because I've seen yet another person asking about this in shoutbox again. Can't it be fixed?

Another method that works really easy is to copy this link into address bar:

http://www.points2shop.com/amazon/product/ASIN (replace ASIN with the ASIN Number from amazon and it gives an instant result)


I really wish this issue would be looked into and hopefully resolved. I don't even bother trying to search reward gallery anymore since it always yields "No results" which is fine if you have a way around the quirks of searching, but for new members it's positively confusing when they can't find any item they want to order.
