SHOPPING SMART ON AMAZON
Whether you're trying to replace that iPhone charger you lost, buying a book to add to your library, buying some hair product you can only find in Asia, or buying baby gear for your baby, you can basically find everything on Amazon. And we can't forget about that free 2-day-shipping. I don't know about you, but sometimes I'd choose to spend a few extra dollars just to get that free 2-day-shipping rather than saving a few bucks somewhere else and end up having to pay for ground shipping. Who charges shipping these days?! Haha. First world problems.
I think the biggest questions I always face when I shop on Amazon are, how do I know whether or not it's a good deal or whether or not the item was ever sold cheaper at a previous point in time? Amazon tries to help you a little bit by telling you that things in your cart have decreased since the last time you saw it, but is that the best deal you're going to get? Was the item ever cheaper?
One of the tools Selina and I started using is called Keepa. It's an application that you install into your browser that lets you see historical prices on an item. It's super useful if you are patient and don't mind waiting for the price to drop a little, or if you don't mind waiting for the next lightning deal. It also notifies you when the item reaches a price that you've been waiting for. To see how the Keepa app works, take a look at the video below.
