Amazon Prime Day 2017 Deals List

The Amazon Prime Day 2017 deals list is not an app, but it is an essential tool to find out about the Prime Day 2017 deal highlights. Amazon is expected to reveal the list of Prime Day 2017 deals just hours ahead of actual Prime Day (See last year's Prime Day deals list). This list is not comprehensive. There will be many more deals on Amazon.com.

Price Comparison

Just because it is Amazon Prime Day, does not mean you find the best deals on Amazon.com. There are plenty of other online stores that want your business. Some of the stores will also try to get your business on Prime Day, by making a better offer. To find other offers for an item, a price comparison site is the way to go. Price comparison sites are not as comprehensive as they have been in past years. Many retailers have opted out of suppling their deals into price comparison engines.

Google has taken over the role of primary price comparison tool. Just search for the product name or model number to find offers from other online stores and compare prices. Alternatively shoppers can try pricegrabber.com and shopping.net.

Amazon Assistant

The online giant offers a browser extension called Amazon Assistant that provides additional features while on amazon.com, but also now on google.com. When you search for a product on Google, the Amazon assistant inserts related offers on top of the page.
