I had two books that I wanted to post to a buddy's WL.  I didn't even think to look for a bulk option until it was too late, and I'm not even sure if there is one, so that's what I'm asking, in case this comes up again.  I ended up posting each book to that person's WL individually, so it came through as separate orders that I was unable to combine into a bulk order.  I will still send them together with the same DC, but in the future, it would be nice to get the quick credit for both of them.  Is there a way to post more than one book to a WL such that they will come out as a bulk order?

Thanks- Lesley

No, there's no way to make a bulk offer.

I wish they would fix this.  It is not a real big deal, but very inconvenient.

I don't really see any need to "fix" this.  The principle of the club is the FIFO system.  Posting bulk items to one member would be going around that system.  While it is nice to save on shipping, I'd rather let the system do it's job and get the books to the people who have been waiting the longest.
