Founded in 2008, CamelCamelCamel is an Amazon price tracker that can be utilized as an add-on. So, constantly checking that item you have been obsessing over, is no longer necessary. CamelCamelCamel monitors Amazon prices for the items you are interested in. With the ability to create an alert, CamelCamelCamel monitors the pricing of Amazon items.
The add-on also provides price history charts and price drop alerts. Though CamelCamelCamel is easily accessed as an add-on, CamelCamelCamel can also be utilized via their website, CamelCamleCamel.com. The site features product searches, price watches, top price drops, handy tools and an extensive blog.
The Camelizer – An add-on compatible with Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Amazon Product Search – You can search for products from the CamelCamelCamel site, using the Amazon URL or keyword. Search results detail Amazon prices and links to price history RSS feeds for each price type. The search bar is listed at the top right of every page [of the CamelCamelCamel website]. The Camelizer add-on allows you to view price history charts without leaving retailer product pages. You can also create an alert directly from the add-on.
Price Drop and Availability Alerts – Serving as the main feature of CamelCamelCamel, you can create a product alert. You can specify your desired price range. CamelCamelCamel will alert you when Amazon stocks your product or makes a price change on your item. Alerts can be received via email, Twitter or RSS feed. The alerts detail the new pricing information and link directly to the item.
Price History Charts – A product page showcases Amazon pricing history for an item. Graphs detail the highs, lows and averages pricing for an item over time. This way, you can decide whether to wait on purchasing your item, based on the pricing history. For example, if prices have recently been changing for an item you’ve been eying, it might be sensible to monitor closely and purchase soon.
Camel Price Watch Management interface – You can view each item you have created a price alert for – the items you are watching. This can easily by done by clicking “Your Price Watches” at the top of each page. The table format includes information like the date you created the price alert, the desired price range, the current price of the item, an item description and more.
Wishlist Import – An amazing feature; CamelCamelCamel allows you to import a publicly-listed Amazon Wishlist. The add-on used the Wishlist URL to import information on all the items listed in the Wishlist. You can monitor the prices of items on the list, as well as view when items are purchased or received. This can be especially helpful around the holidays, kids’ birthdays or cousin’s wedding, as you can monitor their Wishlist in live-time.
Registration Optional – What I consider to be a big-time bonus; you do not have to sign-up for or register to use CamelCamelCamel! To avoid the hassle of a registration process, CamelCamelCamel allows you to create alerts without registering for their site or add-on. However, if you would like to receive price alerts via email, you will need to include your email address.
Amazon Locales Support – In support of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, U.K. and U.S. Amazon locales. Each locale is an area supported by Amazon.
