Every time I see a “deal” on Amazon I wonder if it’s a real deal? Or is the seller trying to pull a quick one on me?!

When I was reviewing money saving web-extensions, the prices on Amazon where changing so fast I had a hard time keeping my experiment consistent. On one occasion I saw the average price of about 20 items change 8% in about a day and a half. One item (a $200 dollar camera) varied in price so many times I had to remove it from my experiment.

Fortunately I don’t have to worry about these price changes when I shop on Amazon because I use CamelCamelCamel!

I’ve been using the web extension for about a month and it’s been great! Every time I’m on Amazon I check to make sure that amazon special offer is really something special.

I’ve written about amazon discount finders before but this one is very unique.
