You really want a new blender. It’s time to get healthy, and you’ve decided that daily green smoothies are the perfect avenue to that goal. Now you need a blender. Not just any blender. You must have a blender on steroids.
Let’s take 2 popular brands of super blenders. The VitaMix and the Blendtec. Both of these brands are professional quality blenders that can mix, chop, and pulverize nearly anything. You can liquify almonds to make almond milk and even make hot soup right in the blender.
What does this have to do with Amazon price tracking? Blenders on steroids aren’t cheap. So, you’ll want to be patient and wait for a deal. Here’s how to make sure you aren’t paying too much.
There are two sites I use to manage price tracking on Amazon. CamelCamelCamel.com is great for looking at the price history of an item and ShoppingNotes.com provides an easy way to receive email alerts when a watched item’s price changes.
I used CamelCamelCamel.com to look at the price history of this Vitamix Blender. Notice that the current price is $498.95. Good price? Look what the price was on September 5th. It was over $100 cheaper, but it looks like it was at that bargain price for only a single day. An email alert from ShoppingNotes.com on September 5th, would have saved $100 on the purchase.
Here’s a similar example with a Blendtec TB-621-20. The current price on this one is the highest it’s been in 2 years. It’s not a deal right now. Look how much the price fluctuates. Chances are that in the next month, the price will drop momentarily into the mid, if not low $300′s. Is keeping an extra $100 in your wallet worth the wait?
And speaking of $100, ShoppingNotes.com has a friend referral program. You can earn up to a $100 gift card from Amazon.com, Target, and more. Simply create an account at ShoppingNotes.com and set up at least one alert. You’ll then receive an email inviting you to the program. Send your friends a link to do the same, and for every friend who signs up and sets up one price alert, you’ll earn $1 towards your gift card. You can redeem a gift card once you’ve referred at least 10 people ($10), but not more than 100 ($100).
