In the past I have written about how buying something at release is not a good idea. The prices of most things tend to go down over time and you can probably buy that new album or gadget for a less if you just wait a few months. I demonstrated this with the “Back to the Future” blu-ray box set that I wanted. When it first went on sale it cost 80 dollars. I waited two years and grabbed it for 25 proving that patience is not only a virtue it’s also a great tool for finding bargains.
The website CamelCamelCamel.com offers you the ability to track the price of items that you are interested in at sites like Amazon, BestBuy, and new egg. You can simply cut and paste the URL into their search bar and enter the price you are looking for. When that item hits your target price CamelCamelCamel will send you an e-mail to alert you. How nice is that?
The site also provides with a huge list of popular items selling a large discounts. You can search through hundreds of items and find terrific deals for yourself or on gifts for other.
I did a quick search and found a few bargains that might interest you:
- The Wire: The Complete Series $79.00 – The series has flown under a lot of people’s radar but most people who have seen it love it. Five seasons of one of the most critically acclaimed shows on television, 100 dollars off. A great DVD box set at an even better price.
- 5 Panasonic KX- TG7645M Link to Cell via Bluetooth cordless phone with answering system $94.99 – The reviews are very good for this phone system. I have a similar system from Panasonic, I have owned it for 3 years and I like it. Adding phones to different rooms without having to add jacks is terrific.
- The Otterbox iphone Case $23.44 – The Future Bride has one and she loves it. This case really protects your phone, including the screen. It normally retails for around 50 bucks, so you are getting it of for more then 1/2 off.
- Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater $22.22 – This little heater is great for small room. It has an adjustable Thermostat and comes with some very positive reviews.
