The Camelizer extension for Amazon Prime DaySource: Windows Central

This year, Prime Day is happening on October 13 and 14, which means that during those 48 hours, deals will constantly be dropping. As a result, if you're not prepared, you may accidentally end up buying something, thinking it's a good deal when in reality it's not. But don't worry, "The Camelizer" can help you avoid bad deals.

The Camelizer is an extension available for all major browsers (including Microsoft Edge, Chrome, and Firefox) that bring up the historical pricing data for products available in Amazon without having to leave the tab. Using this information will help understand whether you're getting a good deal or if the price was recently increased and then reduced to make it look like you're getting a bargain.
