Add Custom URL Parameters

Although there may not be a sidebar with all the filters you want or need, you can add certain parameters to Amazon’s URLs to find items with the biggest percentage off.

For example, adding the below to the end of the URL when you are searching in Amazon will show items from 40-70% ofcof only:

&pct-off=40-70

If you want to show all items that are 50% off and up you would add the below parameters to the Amazon URL:

&pct-off=50-

Note: Make sure to add the minus sign (-). This tells Amazon to show all items that are 50% off AND up. If you leave out the minus sign it will just show items that are 50% only.

Track Amazon Prices

Finding the best deals on Black Friday usually means that you are prepared. If you really want to get some crazy discounts, try using one of the Amazon Price Tracking Tools.

Simply add all the products you are interested in purchasing and see past/present pricing of your items. See when they go up/down and when… This way, you can get the item when it’s cheapest (whether its Black Friday or not).
