View Amazon price changes with Camelcamelcamel
The camelcamelcamel website is a great tool for finding Amazon price history. This useful site allows you to track sales and price drops of any product over the course of its existence on Amazon. All you need to do is copy and paste the ad URL into camelcamelcamel’s search bar and hit enter.
When you open a price history page, you will see a graph tracking the price over time. Use the chart settings to adjust the duration displayed, add and compare third-party prices, or remove the most extreme price changes.
As you can see in the table above, whenever Amazon is out of stock of this AMD 5900X (where the green line becomes dotted), third-party sellers often show up with prices well above Amazon’s price , even when units are used. This is especially evident early in the chart, shortly after the processor’s release, when it was constantly out of stock.
Camelcamelcamel does not and cannot factor in shipping and handling charges in prices quoted. The website will, however, tell you if the product is eligible for Prime shipping.
To help you make your purchases, camelcamelcamel designates “Good Deal” and “Best Price” conditions for each ad based on its price history. If the price currently meets one of these conditions, you will see it noted at the top of the price history page. If you’re looking for a good deal, you can click on “Popular Products” and “Best Price Drops” to see listings of products that currently meet these conditions.
If you crave more data, you can scroll below the price chart to see the tables with the highest, lowest and average prices. These data points can help you judge for yourself what constitutes a good price.
Of course, you probably don’t want to check the site again and again for price drops. Fortunately, camelcamelcamel can monitor this for you and notify you when a sale or price drop occurs.
Above the price table of any item you will find a simple form where you can set up price alerts. You can then receive email notifications when the price falls below the specified price. This feature is especially useful if you are considering purchasing a product but think the price might drop in the future.
Using the Camelizer Browser Extension
Many of Camelcamelcamel’s features are available in a browser add-on called Camelizer. You can get it on Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, Safari and Opera.
Whenever you view a product on Amazon, you can click the Camelizer button in your browser toolbar to instantly see the price history. You can also sign up for price drop alerts directly in the extension window.
Using the extension saves you time because you no longer need to switch between two websites. Equipped with the power of camels, you are now on your way to becoming a more informed Amazon shopper!
