How to easily track price history on Amazon

If you want to know if a deal is truly as good as it says it is then here is an easy way to track a product’s price history on Amazon.

In the run up to Black Friday, it can be imperative that you know the pricing history of certain products. Not only does this allow you to know right away when you’re snatching up a true bargain, but it also gives you an idea of when the product can dip or raise in price, making it easier to know when you should buy.

Thankfully, it’s really easy to track price history on Amazon, and it can be achieved through a simple browser extension. The method we’re going to run through is supported by Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera and Safari, although there are some other extensions available too.

So, without further ado, here is the easiest way to track the pricing history of products on Amazon.

  • A laptop or a desktop
  • Chrome/Microsoft Edge/Firefox/Opera/Apple Safari as your browser

Troubleshooting

Why should I use a price tracker?

Using a price tracker on Amazon lets you know how expensive a product is now compared to a few days and weeks ago, and it can inform better buying decisions as you may want to wait a little longer if the product is likely to go on sale again.
