This year, Prime Day is happening on October 13 and 14, which means that during those 48 hours, deals will constantly be dropping.

Once you complete the steps, you can start saving products in the service to track their price history on Amazon.
Under the « Price type » section, use the lowest and highest price information to determine the desired price for the product sold and fulfilled by Amazon.
After you complete the steps, the CamelCamelCamel service will keep tabs on the price, and when it reaches your desired price range, you’ll receive an alert to get the product.
Once you saved your items, you can view them all at the CamelCamelCamel website, where you can see the current and desired prices.
If you want to see additional information, you can click the item to review the price history, change the desired price, or delete the item from the list.
If you want to update your account information and other settings, you can do this from the CamelCamelCamel website.
Although we’re outlining the steps on Windows 10, you can also use the extension on available web browsers for macOS and Linux to shop smarter this year’s Amazon Prime Day event.
Finally, at the time of this writing, CamelCamelCamel released an update for the extension, but the update is currently only available for Chrome and Firefox.
