Use this comparison shopping tool for Amazon.com

January 1, 2015 - Tech

Amazon has been a huge convenience since I moved to New York — their Prime shipping, cheap prices and delivery had Amazon boxes at my doorstep a few times a week. I participate in their Subscribe & Save feature, which allows items to be automatically shipped on a monthly schedule.

The one negative about S&S is that prices can fluctuate without you knowing, so I make it a point to check the prices of my product deliveries on a monthly basis. The problem is I have to look at the current price and compare it to the previous price that I paid on my last order — there had to be a better way.

Enter the Camelizer, which is a comparison shopping tool that I use specifically as a Amazon comparison webapp.

You can enter in a product URL into http://camelcamelcamel.com/ and the Camelizer will spit out the some great price comparison data including the Amazon Price History (current price, the highest, lowest and average price), and the last 5 price changes for that product.

I admit that there was a couple weeks where I had gotten to a place where I trusted Amazon so much that I now assume they almost always¬†had the lowest prices. Normally, I am a price-conscience shopper but¬†Amazon’s consistent low prices and Prime shipping had me blindly buying items without my normal due diligence/comparison shopping. With the camelizer, I have a accurate take on whether a product’s price is low or high.
