We all love a great bargain and we all enjoy that feeling of snagging something we’ve wanted at a great price. CamelCamelCamel gives us the opportunity to utilize this tool to do just that. CamelCamelCamel is an online resource that allows you to set a price on an Amazon item which will alert you the moment it drops below that set price. Not only does it allow you to set a price, it also gives you historical information regarding that item so you have a better idea of what you can potentially snag it for.
Let’s go with a recent example of something we utilized CamelCamelCamel for. TIGI Bed Head Matte Separation Wax is a product we have been wanting to try for some time now. It would hover anywhere from just shy of $17 to as low as $8.98. Now as you can see that’s a huge price gap to pay for the same product.
You can see here CamelCamelCamel has an Amazon Price History chart that shows the current, highest, and lowest price along with the average. This helps us see the range to get a better idea of what we might expect or want to pay.
Next you will see the historical graph. This helps us see the pricing for the product and where it has been in the last month, three months, and so on. Utilize this to see how the price has fluctuated and what you might be able to expect. Granted we never really know how or when these prices might go, this helps us get an understanding of where we can get the best deal.
We set a price point of $10 here in the alert section about a month ago and low and behold, we just recently received a notification that this product slipped right under $10! We got the notification and made our purchase.
If we would have just decided to pull the trigger, we would have been paying upwards of $13 for the same thing! A little bit of patience and planning goes a long way.
Utilizing resources and information like this gives us an advantage. Planning ahead and getting an idea of what we want allows us to save money, and who doesn’t like to save money. Let us know how this works out for you and any other great money saving tips you may have!
