Apart from Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Prime Day has become one of the biggest shopping events of the year. It’s a two – day stretch where Amazon Prime members are likely to find some of the best prices to date on popular tech products such as games, game consoles, laptops, 4K TVs, phones, PC accessories and more. And with Prime Day 2020 happening so close to the end of the year, this week could be a great opportunity to grab some gifts.
Of course, not all of the best Prime Day 2020 deals will live on Amazon. Many other retailers, including Target, Best Buy, Walmart and many more will also run competing deals you probably want to know about.
You can trust that we publish the best deals you need to know about, but if you want to be among the first to know about price drops on products you are interested in, you want to start a website for price tracking. We have included some of our favorite examples below and pointed out how each one can help you track offers in slightly different ways, with their own special features.
Everyone is free to use, and once you have added products that you are interested in, you can rest assured that you do not need to take any extra action until it is time to make a purchase.
CamelCamelCamel is the best tracker for Amazon products
CamelCamelCamel tracks the price of each product sold on Amazon and can send alerts when they fall as low as you want. When a product reaches the desired price that you have set or reduced, you will receive an email about it. This price tracker works only for products on Amazon, so you need to use another one below to track price movements at Walmart, Best Buy and others.
To track prices and receive email alerts, you need to create a free account. I also suggest you install the site’s browser add-on, called The Camelizer, which lets you see product-by-product pricing trends and lets you set the desired price without navigating away from Amazon. It’s amazing and easy to use.
As soon as one of the products falls below the amount stated in your price alert, you will immediately receive an email. And if you already have a wish list saved on Amazon, you can import it into CamelCamelCamel.
Like CamelCamelCamel, the Honey browser extension can track the prices of items you are interested in, and it will alert you when it finds a deal. Unlike the above price tracking site, Honey will also look for every site you visit for promotional codes that can be applied to your cashier to save even more money.
Honey works with Amazon and many other retailers, and you can add items to your “Droplist”, which is basically just a wish list. At Best Buy, for example, the option to add an item to your list appears on the product’s image and you can choose the length of the price watch and the percentage discount you are looking for.
Slickdeals collects some of the best deals on the internet, which was discovered by its team and user group. Its website also allows you to create business notifications based on keywords, but they work a little differently on Slickdeals than they do with the above sites.
You can enter a product name, such as “Nintendo Switch” or the retailer’s name, and once it has been added to your list, you will receive a warning message if it meets your criteria. You can set it to warn you of literally any business related to your keyword, or you can filter out offers so that you get a message if, for example, the business is popular enough to make it Slickdealsthe front page or if it received a high rating from the community.
As you may have guessed by name, PC Part Picker helps you choose PC components that are compatible with each other, making the already daunting task of assembling a DIY computer installation a little easier.
That in itself makes it a crucial tool, but it is also an excellent price tracker that shows you a detailed graph that illustrates the current and past price movement of a particular component. It lets you build your dream computer and it can alert you via email about price drops from major retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, B&H Photo and more. That way, you can, say, choose to wait to buy everything until the processor or graphics card comes down to a lower price you know it was hit earlier.
Look outside Amazon
Prime Day is a huge event that shows Amazon’s presence in retail, so of course other retail chains are noticing. Sometimes you can find better deals from Best Buy, Target, Walmart and Newegg. We will compile the best anti-Prime Day sales when they arrive. If Amazon sales do not have everything you want or if you just want to make sure you get the best deal, shop around a bit.
Trust the experts
We’re a complicated bunch here The border, so do not worry if you enter Prime Day 2020 without any preparation. We will correct the best deals on technology and keep our coverage up to date with new Lightning sales items while eliminating old ones to avoid disappointment. So mark the 13th and 14th of October in your calendar, bookmark our coverage and maybe start spending some money.
