Up-sell and cross-sell

Looking for good examples of sites that do a good job up-selling (items that are more expensive that what you're viewing) and cross-selling (items that compliment).

I KNOW I've come across great examples, but nothing readily comes to mind!!

Designing the Obvious, coming to a bookshelf near you

If you're interested in finding new sources of debate and lively
conversation, you might pick up a copy of my new book, released today,
called Designing the Obvious. It discusses guiding principles of web
application design, but does so by pointing out concrete examples and
talking about how to reproduce the qualities that make web apps great.

The term "interaction design" is mentioned exactly once, on the second to
last page of the book ... I think.

Differnce between user interface and interactiodesign?

>>> Wipe out the entire design colony and start afresh and just name
>>> anyone who does work in any of these areas as a Designer.
>> Amen brother.

> That makes two of us.

That unfortunately still doesn't solve the problem that often people -

people who *develop* interfaces as designers.

<http://meiert.com/en/blog/20080703/compared-to-what/>. I understand
this concept's root in information design, but worry about the
supposed fact that not only many "designs", but rather news sources
fail in answering that question.
