How to find price history on Amazon this Black Friday

Black Friday is one of the best times to catch a deal but, with so many offers flying around throughout the month of November and the lead-up to Christmas, it can be difficult to tell when an item has actually been given a rare discount. 

One of the easiest ways to feel secure in the knowledge you’re getting a good deal is to monitor the pricing history of any products you’re interested in. Not only will this tell you if that item has been cheaper in the past, but it should also give you a good idea of when that product might dip or increase in price based on past trends. 

It’s especially easy to track price fluctuations on Amazon as several browser extensions exist precisely for this purpose. 

We’ll be using CamelCamelCamel in this guide, but another popular extension for Amazon price tracking is Keepa. Both extensions are compatible with a wide range of browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera and Safari.
