Here’s how to find the best deals possible this holiday season.



Black Friday is fast approaching.

In the blink of an eye, the holiday season and Christmas festivities will be here, and you’ll be wondering where the time has passed, sulking at the thought that you haven’t had the gifts you really wanted for your friends. and your family.

From carriers to retailers, this time of year presents a bombardment of offers and promotions, so much so that the item selection becomes a bit overwhelming. Added to this is the uncertainty of the stock of highly sought-after products, including the latest generation consoles.

Fortunately, there are tools on the internet that can help us track inventory and price, ensuring that you always get the best deal possible.

??

One of the most trusted tools that can alert you to Amazon inventory, product pricing, and price history is CamelCamelCamel. A website and extension that lives on your browser, Camel allows you to select the products you want to purchase and sends you an email notification as soon as it detects a price drop / discount on it. For wanted products, like the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, Camel will send you an email notification that the product is in stock.

The service is not limited to electronics and can be used to track any product from Amazon’s very extensive catalog. Moreover, Camel is a free tool and can even be used with less functionality without registering. CamelCamelCamel supports Amazon US, Canada, Europe, Australia.

To simply check a product’s historical prices on Amazon, go to Amazon, navigate to the product listing, copy its URL and paste it into the “Find Amazon Products” top bar on Camel.

This is also where you can add your email and set a price drop percentage. Whenever the price of the product drops by the set percentage, you will receive an email notification. I like to set the drop to “Any drop in price” so I get a notification every time the price is heading south.

In the example below (second screenshot), we can see that the ASUS TUF monitor was available for $ 349 in late June / early July. Given the abundance of incoming offers in the coming weeks, the price of the monitor will likely drop to less than $ 350. So instead of getting it now for $ 389, I can set a price drop alert and buy it for a better price.

Dropper

Unlike Camel, which only tracks products listed on Amazon, pricedropper.ca can track over 100 Canadian retail websites including Best Buy, Apple, Canada Computers, Canadian Tire, Costco, EB games GameStop, Microsoft, Newegg, Razer and many more. While pricedropper works similarly to Camel, its main strength is the large number of retailers it follows.

The website home page displays various sections including “Featured Price Drops”, “All Lowest Prices” and “Latest Price Drops” that keep you on top of trends.

You don’t need to create a pricedropper account to track price history; However, you will need to register if you want to be notified of a discount.

The procedure works similarly to Camel. You locate the product you want to track and copy its URL. Head to the ‘+ New Product’ tab at the top right and paste and paste the URL. To simply check the price, click on “Search”, also located at the top right, and enter the name of the product.

In the example below, I can clearly see that the 2nd Generation Google Nest Hub is currently at an all time high and that too at several retailers, giving me confidence that the deal I get is the better.

Follow the right Twitter accounts

Twitter is more than just a hateful microblogging platform. If you follow the right accounts, this can be a place to learn and grow your circle. Some Twitter accounts that focus primarily on Canadian retailer inventory and product pricing are a must if you’re trying to find the best deals.

These are the most notable Twitter accounts that me and others at MobileSirop follow, and you should also if you want to stay on top of business trends:

@Lbabinz – “Video game offers in Canada 🇨🇦, pre-orders, news. Nintendo, PS5, Xbox, PC.

@GameDealsCanada – “Why pay full price for the games, Canada?”

@CDNnotify – “Info to help the Canadian sneaker community and # PS5”
