The Backdoor to Amazon's 70% off deals

by Paul Michael on 8 March 2007 41 comments

Backdoor sale

I'm completely crazy about a new site I've just discovered. It's called Jungle Crazy and it's brought to you by those nice folks who also gave you RetailMeNot and BugMeNot.

What is it? Well, it's a very cool visual search engine of all the Mega Bargain Clearance items available at Amazon.com, all in one place. They're all at least 70% off, some as much as 90% off, and it's about to save me some serious time and money finding gifts for the multitide of folks in my extended family. 

Here's a list of some of the cool things I found in just the last few minutes.

Energizer AA rechargeable batteries - $3.98, down from $14.99

2GB Kingston flash drive - $23.62, down from $79.99

Cingular PDA - $99.99, down from $599.99

1GB SanDisk Compact Flash Card -  $17.99, down from $59.99

I could go on, but you get the idea. This isn't a bunch of clearance junk. It's quality name-brand items at silly prices. There are two ways to search the site. A floating database at the top of Jungle Crazy lets you browse by your particular shopping interest. Or you can use the search engine box (make sure your search is 3 letters or more). Either way, the results are displayed visually, with the savings, so it's very very easy to browse and buy.

When you find something you want, a link takes you straight through to the item on Amazon.com, which is of course a trusted site. Overall this is my best find of the last few months. Go for it bargain hunters.

Actually it is a fair amount of clearance junk. The compact flash card is about the average price now, but when the original price (maybe two years ago) was probably $60. You think you are getting a bargain because the original is never lowered to reflect the current marketplace.

The PDA phone is probably at least two years. I found it on Ebay (brand new) for $250 without contract (which is probably the same value of it being $99 with the required contract from Amazon).

Handyzon sounds more like a lame porno than an Amazon deal finding website. Now, Wonderful Project, well.. that's what I call an Amazon deal website.

Works on Canadian and UK versions of Amazon (as well as the US version, of course), to boot.

Need teh 1337 Amazon deals? Checkz out da Wonderful Project, eh?

this is fine.. but i actually prefer to use this website...

And here's why: you can browse by category, sub-category or search AND... you can sort the results by price, popularity, percent off, and user ratings.

There's no arbitrary 70% cut-off - and you can even read sample customer reviews.

But the best thing about this site is it's easy to use! They show you at a glance all the most important stuff about each product.

I can't help but notice, too, how many items are not clearance at all, but in fact inflated, phony markdowns from "Amazon stores" with ridiculous 'retail prices.'

Guest's picture

Here is my implementation of deal shopping

i run two wordpress cms powered shopping websites

www.plattdeals.com

www.thedealsplace.com

they both use the same database of stuff, which i update every night , but display differently based on whether you want a grid or a list.

im using more merchants than amazon.com so i have more and usually better deals

But thedealsplace is a complete rip of junglecrazy?

Good sites mentioned here, but I like having the community vote on online coupons to filter out the bad stuff... so I typically start my search at Savings.com.

I am using http://discountslider.com/ for sometime, no need to browse, search is really great. can get deals having 65% and more discount.

Check out Jungle-Search.com. It allows you to search Amazon.com by category, subcategory, brand name, percent off, price range, and more. This is one of my favorites and definitely worth a look.

I would have to recommend http://www.pricealerter.co.uk as a great way to save money with Amazon. Their prices change all the time, so this site will email you when something your interested in goes down in price.

The US version is here.

But why are so many of the amazon products at jungle crazy CONDOMS?

JungleCrazy is a very famous site for amazon deals, same as amazon discount finder . Both of them are my favorite deal sites for Amazon.com. I used to buy all products from Amazon.com because they have free shipping.However I heard about AmazingWatcher.com which is a free website that will “watch” items for you on Amazon and let you know when amazon has them in stock at regular retail price.
