Hack Amazons URLs For Bargains

ProBargainHunter analyzed Amazon’s URLs and found ways to easily find hidden clearance and deal items by department. For instance, 75% off cameras:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=502394&pct-off=75- You can specify a range for the discount like this: “&pct-off=50-70

. To sort the results by price add “&sort=price” at the end. If you want to list just the Amazon products (these would qualify for free shipping with Amazon Prime membership) then add “&emi=ATVPDKIKX0DER” at the end.

    this guy also created http://www.wireddeals.com, an aggregator for highly ranked deals on SlickDeals and FatWallet. It’s an incredibly useful interface for those forums. Good to see he’s getting linked.

    Huh. The last bit is interesting in that it’s not as much of no-brainer as the other sorts, but I’ve got an ancient computer at home, so I’ve been doing this type of sorting with databases for a long time. When each page takes forever to load because of all the info being pushed on each pageload, I’ve learned ways to evade loading more pages than absolutely necessary. Most often I do this with Yahoo! and LiveJournal who uses the same ? and & to search and specify. But of course there’s plenty of other websites who use it.
