The highly anticipated Prime Day 2017 deals list Amazon will release as it seems on Monday feature real deals for the most part. Many Prime Day deals that you will come across or are already listed now are no special deals at all. These fake Prime Day deals are easy to identify with the help of a great amazon shopping tool.

Keepa is an Amazon price tracker that inserts a graph on Amazon's product pages that gives shoppers a quick understanding about how the price of the product has changed over time. This is extremely helpful to understand if the current offer is actually a deal. Keepa is available as Chrome and Firefox browser extension on


A product listing might say 60% off list price on Prime Day. A quick glance at the automatically inserted Keepa graph shows if this is true at all. A flat graph means the product is always sold for the price marked as a special Prime Day discount. Another scenario that is very common is that the price is only slightly lower than usual, but advertised as huge discount.

Adding the context of price history debunks all fake Prime Day 2017 deals. Besides Keepa, you can also get Camelizer. This amazon price tracker has also a Safari browser add-on.
