Heya, so I am an Amazon used books junky, and obsessively collect art and photography books.

I made a program to scan my Amazon wishlist for all of the best deals available on used books.

you can see it in action on my wishlist here:

I wanted to share and I hope you find it useful. As a book collector, it's been great for me. I've snagged lots of anomalously good deals.
(It also keeps historical record of book prices, so when you go back more than once it will start giving you stats, so you know when a book is a great deal)

I used to scan my 9-page wishlist every day looking for deals, and this tool makes the task a snap for me. The links to the books has my "amazon affiliates" id, so I hope you don't mind that.


PS: future features coming eventually will be an automated email subscription, as well.

Thank you, Caitlyn! I am an Amazon used book junky too, and I can already tell your program will be useful :-))

Fantastic. Although my best deal, to get a six volume set of books for only $550, down from $1,000, somehow is still not tempting enough... ;)

It seems like a great tool Caitlyn. I will try it. Thanks

These are all great tools, but see also the Mother Jones magazine investigative report on their website of below-abysmal working conditions at all Amazon warehouses. Several physicians of patients working at Amazon warehouses have begun to report OSHA violations in those working conditions, which border on slavery. I told Amazon that I am discontinuing buying anything from them until their subhuman warehouse work environment is improved.

You shouldn't be on your computer either as I'm sure it was made in below-absymal working conditions. You shouldn't get rid of it either as you are giving the people of Guiyu cancer. And your clothing?
