Everyone likes a good bargain. Most internet users go to either eBay or Amazon to find them. Blind and visually impaired visitors who use screen readers know that neither site would win any awards for usability. Searching through tons of links for a deal takes all the fun out of actually finding something.
I am always looking for alternative ways to find deals on the net and I have two sites that can help save time and find great deals on both eBay and Amazon.
TheTracktor: Get Amazon Price Drop Notifications
Amazon has millions of products with prices changing all the time. TheTracktor is a tracking app that lets you track items being sold on Amazon and sends you price drop notification whenever a price drops below a certain level. You can track as many items as you want and also specify the condition of the item you are interested in.
To start, just look up an item by its name, ISBN or by simply entering the Amazon.com URL. TheTracktor will display the complete price history of the item and lets you set alerts. You can also view a 3 month, 6 month or year old graph showing the price fluctuation for the item.

AuctionAlerts: Find Great Deals On eBay
It seems that finding great deals on eBay gets harder and harder as time goes by. There’s a reason for this: tools used for monitoring the web’s premier auction site are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Auction alerts is one such tool, and using it could help you find what you’re looking for.
Here’s how it works: you tell AuctionAlerts what you’re looking for, and what price you’re willing to pay. Whenever someone offers your item on eBay at or below your price you’ll get an email informing you, allowing you to bid early. It’s a lot like Google Alerts, but for eBay.
