Get a $5 bonus when you reload your Amazon.com Gift Card blance with $100 or more

September 15, 2016 by Jonathan

I just noticed this today while logged in to my Amazon.com account to check my order status. There was a notification about receiving a $5 reward if I reload my gift card balance with an amount of $100 or more.

Since I use Amazon to buy most of my stuff, this is pretty much a no-brainer for me so I went ahead with it. It looks like you can only use it once per account. You can use a credit card to reload your gift card balance so don't forget to use a credit card that offers rewards!

In case you don't see the notification under your account, you can try this link.

The Amazon "Buy Box", automated repricing software, and price wars

July 27, 2016 by Jonathan

If you're a regular Amazon shopper, you've probably already noticed that prices of certain products on Amazon could change very frequently.

Amazon's mission is to provide the lowest possible prices. If Best Buy, for example, drops the price of a popular video game one day, you can almost guarantee that Amazon will match it within the next 24 hours. But Amazon doesn't just compete with the big guys.

Amazon itself is also a marketplace, where third-party sellers (which could be big businesses or just individuals) can sell their own private label products without competition, compete with other sellers, and even compete with Amazon itself.

The Amazon marketplace makes it very easy for individuals sell their products as the site gets millions of visitors per day. I've sold stuff on Amazon myself, such as old books and video games, both used and new. It was quite ...

Amazon Prime Day 2016

Amazon just recently announced that the second annual Prime Day event will take place on July 12.

Amazon first introduced Prime Day last year to celebrate their 20th year anniversary. The event is exclusively for Amazon Prime members and you can expect big savings on many products on Amazon on this day.

Here's what Amazon is saying about this event:

This year promises to be even bigger. From the 5th to 11th of July leading up to Prime Day (July 12, 2016), Amazon will offer a selection of unique Prime exclusive deals, video and music content. Beginning July 5th, we will email daily updates sharing ...

Are you a console gamer? Here are 3 Twitter accounts you may want to follow

June 14, 2016 by Jonathan

If you're a gamer on a budget, chances are you visit a bunch of deals sites to check if a game you're interested in is on sale before making a purchasing decision. Because Amazon is very competitive with their pricing, often times when something goes on sale on other sites like BestBuy.com or Gamestop.com, Amazon will match their prices within a day or two. So if you're not in a hurry, you can usually just wait until Amazon do their price match.

EZ Price Alerts can of course save you the hassle of having to keep checking Amazon's site by setting up your own price alert so you can get notified via email when an item's price reaches your target price or below it. But sometimes you just want to get a feed of price drops for your favorite consoles.

At EZ Price ...
