A lot of us look to Amazon for the best deals, but a recent study by The Wall Street Journal found that the site’s prices fluctuate frequently — sometimes as much as nine times in one day. Here’s how you can you avoid overpaying for your goods.
First, knowing a product’s price history can help you assess whether its cost will go up or down in the near future. Before you get overwhelmed by the task, there are sites that make it easy to follow these numbers. allows you to enter an item’s Amazon URL or product description, generating its price history and other helpful info within seconds. If you decide to track the item, you’ll receive an email any time the price is lowered.

For those of you who want to track your goods without leaving Amazon, there’s The Camelizer, a handy browser extension available for Chrome, Firefox and Safari. It just takes one click to download. To use it, simply go to Amazon and hit the camel icon in your toolbar while you’re shopping around.

A small window will appear with the pricing trends and alert options for whatever item you’re browsing. There are a lot of great price tracking tools out there, but these are a few of our favorites.

Give them a try, and you might be surprised at how much you can save. Happy shopping!
