If you plan to shop during Amazon Prime Day 2022 (opens in new tab) on July 12 and 13, you must use The Camelizer to get the best deals. The Camelizer is an extension you install on your web browser to check the price history of Amazon products. 

The data is available from the CamelCamelCamel (opens in new tab) service, and it will help you review how the price of a specific product has changed over time to find out whether the Prime deal is good enough. 

For example, you will be able to determine whether the deal is being compared with the original price to make it seem like you are saving money, but the regular price is similar every other day.

This guide will walk you through the steps to install and get started with The Camelizer extension on Windows 11 (opens in new tab).

The extension is very straightforward. The interface has different tabs, which you can navigate using the left pane. The most important one is the Price history tab, which shows historical data on the product from Amazon and third-party sellers.

The Camelizer can display several historical data, including the history of a product available directly from Amazon (green), third-party sellers (blue), and used products from third-party sellers (red).

The Amazon historical data is the one you want to focus your attention on. You can always toggle the blue and red options at the bottom of the page to disable this data in the chart.

Also, under the chart, you will find the History section with options to change the time range to "1 Month," "3 Months," "6 Months," "1 Year," and "All Time," depending on the product.
