Amazon Price Tracking: CamelCamelCamel.com and Keepa.com

I've used CamelCamelCamel, the website that tracks Amazon product prices and history, several times to find real bargains. CamelCamelCamel not only offers the ability to track price fluctuations on Amazon products, but also the feature to register for price alerts.

This service is available for listings on Amazon in countries such as the US, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, Canada and China. Originally started as a programming project in 2008, by 2019 CamelCamelCamel had become a popular destination for anyone looking to save money when shopping online.

CamelCamelCamel.com - the page with price tracking and price alarms for Amazon products from Germany and other euro countries as well as USA, Canada, China and Co.

Camel Check: See Amazon prices historically

How expensive was an Amazon product when it was launched? How much does it cost now? And has it been cheaper in the meantime? These questions can be answered on the CamelCamelCamel website. If you put a de. In front of the .com page, you get to the German version, which shows prices in euros instead of dollars:
https://de.camelcamelcamel.com. 

You can register on the site or log in as a registered user. Then you can make full use of all functions (some also as a guest user). The following are listed as camel functions:

  • Price reduction and availability alarms for favorite products
  • Price history charts for Amazon, third-party new and third-party used listings
  • Amazon product search and display of the results in a table
  • Camelizer browser extension for Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome
  • Local support through support of dealer configurations
  • Import wish lists to keep track of item prices
The CamelCamelCamel page is not the most modern Amazon price tracker, but the original in this area. Some of the Camel features such as price charts are also available without registration.

Is there a Camel app for iOS and Android?

In addition to the Camel site on the web, there are also apps for mobile use. On the one hand, you can use the homepage on mobile Browser Use it as a web app because it is (somewhat) responsive. On the other hand, mobile apps for Android are also offered under the same name or with slight variations. 

However, I do not want to refer to them here, as they are not advertised on the official CamelCamelCamel page and are not from the same developers (Cosmic Shovel). So I'm not sure if they are legitimate offers. For iOS, for example, you won't find them at all. You should therefore basically only use the Amazon Product Price Tracker via the mobile web or desktop page or via the official ad-ons in the Internet browser.

CamelCamelCamel.com - Alternative called Keepa.com

From 2008 to 2019, work has been underway on the Camel site to reliably display the price history of Amazon offers. The ten-year history, in which Twitter messages were even possible as a price alarm, naturally brings with it imitators. 

This is the case not only in the application area, but also with regard to desktop websites. A well-known Camel alternative with a cleaner design is Keepa. The functions are very similar here. You can make your own judgment by comparing the two services with a visit https://keepa.com/ felling.

  1. I've looked at camelcamelcamel a couple of times. That thing doesn't work at all. Price on amazon e.g. 599, - Euro. camel shows 709, -. And that's always the case ...

    1. Ok, thanks for the feedback. That is interesting. I haven't had a real use case yet. When I want to order something, I usually do it right away. : D
