All You Need Is Price Tempter and Patience

There are a few kinds of Amazon shoppers: Diligent Dan, Hopeless Hannah, and Smart Sally. While there is no right way to shop on Amazon, we believe there is a best way with Price Tempter.

Diligent Dan

Diligent Dan knows the ins and outs of ecommerce. He knows where to check for the best deals and knows when and why prices are dropping. He often finds himself thinking, “I am an expert Amazon shopper. I know where to cross-reference prices and which plugins to use. I may spend hours monitoring prices, but it pays off”

Is Diligent Dan going overboard? Perhaps. If you are a Diligent Dan, there is hope. Free up hours of your time and head over to Price Tempter – we will do the heavy lifting for you.

Hopeless Hannah

Hopeless Hannah cannot be bothered finding deals on Amazon. She wants to place her order and move on. She firmly believes, “In my case, the products I am shopping for are rarely discounted, so it does me no good to be patient shopping on Amazon.”

Hannah may feel there is no hope, but there is. For almost every product on Amazon, you can expect the price to fluctuate. We currently see select wireless earbuds discounted up to 64%! Become a Hopeful Hannah and let Price Tempter notify you of price drops on your wish list!

Smart Sally

Smart Sally joined the Price Tempter family early on and has seen consistent savings since. Price Tempter tracks the prices of her Amazon wish list and other lists she subscribes to. Smart Sally waits patiently for Price Tempter to notify her of ‘Go For It’ recommendations and then makes her purchase.

How can you be like Smart Sally? It is easy.

  1. Go to Price Tempter and create an account linked to your email account.
  2. Submit your Amazon wish list to Price Tempter and we will track the prices and make recommendations on when is best to buy.
  3. Subscribe to other Price Tempter lists like Top Rated Apple Products and receive notifications for them as well.
  4. Purchase whatever and whenever you want and save money!
  5. Spend less time searching for deals and more time with your family and friends.

On top of that, you can view our ‘Best Mirrorless Cameras’ list and see which products are currently available at a huge discount. Mirrorless Cameras are actually more compact, light, faster, and offer better video quality than DSLR’s, posing as the perfect addition to your summer adventures.

As of May 23, 2020, the Sony a6000 is discounted 27% to a price of $508 – aka ‘Go For It’! The Sony a6000 has 1000+ ratings on Amazon and a star rating of 4.5. Customers love that the Sony a6000 captures beautiful photos with immaculate detail and is easy to travel with.

We went ahead and checked out YouTube video reviews and were left in awe of the image and video quality of a Sony a6000. Cody Blue’s video review is particularly notable as he showed the camera in action capturing imagery of people close-up along with beautiful scenic vistas in nature. He points out that barely any editing is needed when you use the Sony a6000.

All You Need To Know About Warehouse Deals

Amazon Warehouse Deals account for over 47% of our ‘Go For It’ recommendations on Price Tempter and the average discount for a Warehouse Deal is over 36%! Trouble is, after clicking on Amazon, the product is marked as ‘Used’. Buying used products can be risky and returning product can be a hassle!

But here’s the ‘Go For It’ level good news: Amazon Warehouse resells product at a huge discount because they were returned with minimal – if any – use! Amazon is simply reselling millions of like-new, open-box, and pre-owned items at a significant discount. The original owner either changed their mind, were dissatisfied, or realized the product wasn’t what they expected, and sent it back. Cheers to your lucky day!

Let’s take a look at a Samsung Galaxy S10+. This product has been on the market for about a year (released in March 2019) and while many consumers have bought the phone, others have changed their mind and returned it. The Unlocked Cell Phones list on Price Tempter shows the Samsung Galaxy S10+ discounted at 30% (as of May 22, 2020). A new, ‘unused,’ Samsung Galaxy S10+ available on Amazon is only discounted 18%. Here is a prime example of a Warehouse deal selling the phone in ‘Used – Like New’ and ‘Used – Very Good’ condition for a bigger discount. Talk about a great deal!

But what does that really mean?  What does ‘Used – Like New’ mean versus ‘Used – Acceptable’ really mean? Since the product has already been in the hands of another owner, Amazon cannot resell the product as ‘New’. To help with accurate labeling,  Amazon developed a set of criteria to assist in determining the returned product’s condition as either: Renewed, Used – Like New, Used – Very Good, Used – Good, Used – Acceptable.

  1. Renewed: These items have been inspected and tested by Amazon and work like new. These products may come repackaged but will include all accessories.
  2. Used – Like New: An item in perfect working condition. Original protective wrapping may be missing. But the product was returned with minor defects.
  3. Used – Very Good: An item has cosmetic damage or blemishes, shows slight signs of use, has minor accessories missing, or the packaging has been replaced to better protect the item.
  4. Used – Good: An item has large cosmetic damage or blemishes and/or missing accessories. It is also possible the packaging has been replaced to better protect the item.
  5. Used – Acceptable: The item shows signs of wear including scratches, dents, and other aesthetic problems. The packaging may have been replaced to better protect the item, manuals may be missing, and the item may contain third-party attachments.

Next time you are shopping on Amazon and see a Warehouse Deal, do not hesitate to consider it! The savings are huge, and the product is more than likely in great condition. Amazon maintains a 100% customer satisfaction rate so buying from ‘Warehouse Deals’ is of no concern. But if you still have apprehensions, head over to Price Tempter and see if the product is reasonably priced. If it is, we’ll tell you to “Go For It!”

Welcome to Price Tempter!

Get great stuff on Amazon at a great price!

We are ex-Amazonians who love building fun buying experiences. We built Price Tempter to save people money by letting you know when a product you want has a great price and we want that to be as easy as possible for you.

Working at Amazon, we discovered a secret that not many people think about. Online shopping is tailored to ‘Buy Now’ — and often that is exactly what you want. However, frequently there are products you don’t need right away or aren’t quite ready to buy. With a little patience, you can save a lot of money on those purchases.

Millions of price adjustments happen every day on Amazon.com. For example, Walmart launches a sale and Amazon decides to price match. Another retailer wants to clear out an end-of-life product, but others retailers don’t know that so it triggers a price decline and sometimes even price spirals. A vendor funds a promotion with one retailer and other retailers follow suit. A sudden spike in demand for a product causes retailers to raise prices to preserve inventory. Most of these adjustments happen using automated systems to react in seconds as conditions change. Like airline prices, online prices fluctuate like crazy and saving money is all about timing.

With these insights, we set out to build Price Tempter, a simple personal shopping assistant. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to find lists of items that interest you, track your Amazon lists, and alert you when a product price makes it a great time to buy. Tracking product price changes with Price Tempter could save you hundreds of dollars every year.

We hope you love the service. We love feedback from our customers about your shopping experiences, how we’re doing, and what we can do to serve you better. Contact [email protected], message us on Facebook, or submit feedback at the bottom of any page on our site (if you’re logged in).
