    I use PriceProtectr to do to a similar thing.

    Change title to reflect it’s only at Amazon… it’s sorta misleading.

    It doesn’t seem to be reporting prices accurately. :(

    GhettoImp, what sort of problems have you had with the prices?

    Greenpepper, I plan on adding some other ecommerce sites shortly – I only built this last week, so I’m still catching up on the feedback.

    PriceProtectr looks awesome, but it solves a slightly different problem – the key feature (in my mind) with BuyLater is the Twitter integration, which means you can get notified on your cell phone, or by IM, when a hard-to-find item (like a Wii or a Kindle) becomes available.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    JoshuaMcKenty: Twitter integration is your key feature? You know that that only means something to about 0.01% of your potential audience, right?

    I’d look into sending IM and SMS without depending on someone being subscribed to a niche service.
