Amazon.com has been around since 1995, giving people plenty of time to build a long history with the site. It’s especially fun to remember the first Amazon order you’ve ever placed, since Amazon keeps records from the very beginning. Here’s how to find it.
How to view your first order through the Amazon website
You can find your first Amazon order through the Amazon.com website or mobile app (see the next section below). For now, we’ll cover how to find it via the web.
To get started, open a web browser and visit Amazon.com. Next, sign in to your Amazon account. In the upper right corner of the page, select “Returns and orders”.
On the “Your Orders” page, you’ll see a list of orders you’ve recently placed through Amazon. Please note that on Amazon.com, you cannot delete orders, so there is a record of everything you have ordered from your account in Amazon’s database.
Below the “Your Orders” heading, you’ll see a list of options. Just below that, look for a dropdown menu labeled “Orders Placed In” and click on it.
From the dropdown menu, select the year you created your Amazon account. This is probably when you placed your first order. If you don’t know what year it was, start with an earlier year (goes back to 1995) and check until you find the oldest year with orders.
After selecting the year, you will see all the orders you placed in that year. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see your first Amazon order!
From there, you can click “View Order Details” to get a detailed view of how much you paid for it, where the order shipped, and more. When you’re done, feel free to browse the other years in your order history. It’s like the story of your life, written in Amazon orders.

How to view your first order through the Amazon app
To find your first Amazon order on the mobile app, first open the official Amazon app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Next, tap on the hamburger menu (three lines) and select “Orders”.
On the Orders page, tap “Filter Orders.”
In the menu that appears, scroll down to the “Time Filter” section and select the year you created your Amazon account. If you can’t find it, start with a previous year and check each one until you see current orders.
After you tap on the year, you will see a list of all the orders you placed in that year. Scroll to the bottom to see your first order in that year.
Congratulations, it’s your first Amazon order! Tap it in the list if you want to see more details. Have fun walking down Amazon memory lane!
