Bundles. Bundling

I must be late to the party.

In looking for prices on specific items on both Amazon and Walmart, I found pages and pages of "bundles" which included not just the item that I was looking for, but "bundles" that included the item, as well as something associated with the item, as a cover, a manual, a CD, or as a stretch, something that might have a remote connection to the use of the item.

In some cases, even when "sorting by price"... the listings don't list the single item separately.

Am I being too picky or maybe don't understand?

The other part that is grating, is when looking for an item, such as "tablets" by price, every listing that remotely resembles the word being sought... comes up in the "sort by price" list... usually starting with $.01 and taking up the first 5 pages of items.

Yes Amazon could definitely update their search function.
