Today I have a special treat for you, because I am co-hosting my first giveaway. However before I get into the finer details about this awesome giveaway I have a really cool online shopping tip that I’ve been researching the last few days.
The Amazon Price Change
Everyone knows who Amazon is these day and that they sell damn near everything from books to your latest tech gadget. However did you know that the prices on many of Amazons products will change on an ongoing basis.
In fact, prices on certain products can fluctuate on a per minute basis, especially during certain times of the year, such as the Christmas Holiday shopping season. To prove my point I picked one product and monitored it for several hours and took several screen shots to show you just how much this is really happening.
In this case I chose the new iPad as my guinie pig. Below is a screen shot I took of the ipad at 3pm and as you can see the price is $519.99.
However 3 hours later at 6pm I refreshed the page and the price actually dropped to $513.00, and cut $7 off the price of a brand new ipad just like that. Pretty dang cool if you ask me.
Finally, I took one final screen shot 6 hours later at exactly midnight and the price had changed yet again but back up to $519.89, still 10 cents less than the original asking price.
Now that we know that the price can fluctuate on a pretty regular basis you might be wondering how to track these price changes, after all nobody wants to sit around all day on their computer watching prices change on Amazon.
So in order to keep track of these price changes as they happen simply add the product to your Amazon shopping cart and Amazon will automatically send you email updates as the product price changes.
