Find Large Discounts by Category
Let's see how it all works. Let's say you are the market for a new laptop computer but you are unsure which particular model you want. You can go to an Amazon price tracker website and select 'Laptops' as a category and find a list of laptops that have recently dropped in price and are selling well below their average price. In many cases these discounts are temporary and the price may increase over the coming days or weeks. You can browse around the category until you find a laptop that suits your needs and feel confident that you got it at a good price. Once you find an item you are interested in, you can add a little more confidence that the price is a good price, by viewing a chart that shows the price history so that you can verify the price is discounted.
View Price History and Set Price Alerts
If you already have a particular product in mind that you want to buy, you can do additional research to determine if the price is currently higher than it normally sells for. You can do this by first locating the product you wish to buy on the price tracking website. You can enter an Amazon ASIN, the URL to the page on Amazon, or enter keywords to find your desired product. Once you have found your product, you can see the highest price the item has ever sold for, the lowest price the item has ever sold for as well as the average price for the product. In order to give you a better idea of price movement, a chart should also be provided so that you can get a visual idea of the price history. If a product is selling well above its average price then there is a good chance the price may decrease in the future. If you are in no rush to purchase the item at the current time, you can set a price alert and be emailed if the price drops below a certain price.
If you are a regular Amazon shopper or if you are going to buy a high dollar item on Amazon it may be well worth the time and effort to do a little research and find out if the deal you are getting is truly a great deal.
