Track Dynamic Pricing to Save 20-60% on Amazon.com

I’m about to drop some mind bombs. I’m sure you’re aware that some pricing is dynamic, especially travel. But are you also aware that pricing on Amazon for TVs, electronics, furniture, books, and basically everything uses dynamic pricing?! You’re probably thinking… well, I don’t care about a few cents or a few dollars, but we’re talking significant amounts of money.

What is dynamic pricing?

Dynamic pricing is just like it sounds… based on real-time supply and demand. You know how Uber has surge pricing? This is no different – except that you can get ahead if you’re armed with the info I’m about to lay down.

What’s the answer to dynamic pricing on Amazon?

Enter Camel Camel Camel (long and odd name, but excellent tool). With this website and app, you can track whatever you intend to buy and when the price goes down significantly, you’ll get an alert.

Shall we also mention that you can look up the price of anything on Amazon, looking at price trending graph for the last few years?!

Now might be a good time to mention that if you don’t have Amazon Prime, you should get it. You can get 30 days free as an individual or 6 months free if you’re a student and/or have an .edu email address.

Ok, back to this crazy pricing scheme that seems like some sort of magical secret. 

Another tool is Invisible Hand, which will track what you’re looking at and search 11,000 different stores for that same item to get you the best price, including coupons. So this is a great tool to use in addition to Camel, Camel, Camel.

So, let’s give you a few examples so that this whole dynamic pricing thing is clear and the advantage of this information is something you’ll want to brag to your friends about.

How to Get the Best Price on Amazon

1. Make sure you have a Prime membership so that you can score free, fast shipping on most items as well as other discounts. If you don’t want to pay for the membership, put a calendar item remind you to cancel 25 days from now.

2. Login to Camel Camel Camel and search for what’s on your wish list or the things you’re thinking of buying, especially the ones that cost $50 or more. Create a list to track.

3. As a backup, get the Invisible Hand chrome extension to make sure that Amazon is the best place to buy it – might be somewhere else way cheaper anyway. Plus, this will be on while you’re shopping online and will suggest less expensive items, including shipping all over the web – plus promo codes and coupons specific to the store you’re shopping in so that you don’t have to hunt all over the web for coupons every time you shop.

4. If you dare, check out the Top Price Drops section on Camel Camel Camel. Though, I found myself yearning for deals and things I don’t need just because they’re a good deal. So, there’s that to be on the look for.

Here’s an example of something I bought recently *an Alexa wifi outlet* for around $40, when I could have gotten it for $21, had I been patient (see below).

There you have it. I taught you everything I currently know about dynamic pricing.

Which items did you find a price difference on? And how big was difference?

Dynamic, eh? Gotta know the rules of the game to play.

Fast Food Dollar Menu – $1.00 or Less

While I don’t endorse eating fast food in any moral or nutritional fiber of my being, I do realize that eating an inexpensive meal on the go can be a fun and addictive experience, and also one that helps sustain a budget. So this list is just as much for fun as it is to see what you can get for $1 or less. I hope you’ll also appreciate the thoughts on what to get at each respective fast food joint.

1. Taco Bell 

While none of these options look particularly healthy, it’s nice to know you can get cheese in a tortilla in so may different formats for a buck! The Cravings menu has more than half a dozen options including: shredded chicken mini quesadilla, spicy potato soft taco, triple layer nachos, cheesy roll-up, spicy tostada, and a beefy fritos burrito.

What to get at Taco Bell: A $1 triple layer nachos. 

2. Del Taco

Are you noticing a theme? A lot of the same stuff Taco Bell offers, but with the inclusion of some breakfast munchies.

What to get at Del Taco: A $0.79 cent egg & cheese taco. 

3. Burger King

Burger King is taking this whole dollar menu thing up a notch. Why not offer items for $0.80 cents each if you can get people to buy 5 items at a time, mix or match. If you go with a friend, the two of you can easily get 2 burgers, 1 fries, and 2 drinks, and have a meal for each of you for $2.50 each. They cancelled the 5 for 4, but I’m told Wendy’s does a 4 for $4 with over a dozen menu items. Also, right now it’s $0.99 cents for any size coffee – hot or iced! Seems like a good spot to head on a coffee break. There are also rumors of a $0.75 cent soft serve ice cream. Please confirm in comments.

What to get at Burger King: A $0.99 cent large iced coffee

4. Wendy’s

While Wendy’s doesn’t seem to post their prices on their website for some strange reason, I was able to track down that they do in fact have a burger, fries, shake, nuggets, and a few other items on their Everyday Value Menu. I don’t think they do a dollar baked potato anymore, but I sure wish they did!

What to get at Wendy’s: A $0.99 cent chocolate shake.

 

5. Jack in the Box

Did Did you know that Americans eat 554 million Jack in the Box Tacos per year? No joke. I’m not sure if that should gross me out or astound me! Anyway, they may not be made of real meat or real food for that matter, but you can get 2 for $0.99 cents, which can come in handy in a pinch, especially late at night. To complement and wash the taco down, add a $1.00 side of fries and a $1.00 drink to make it a meal.

What to get at Jack in the Box: Duh, 2 tacos = $0.99 cents.
