There was a great site for that called "decide" or something like that, but someone bought them out and shut them down.

This is a tracker for prices on Amazon maybe that will help.

I'm bummed about the other site. I erased the bookmark when they disappeared, so that's why the exact name eludes me.

@ceagee: That was it. Too bad it was good. I'll check out the Amazon link you gave me. Thanks.

Check this out: they were bought by ebay.

@minkeygirl7: I'd never heard of them, but having watched their "good-bye and thank you" video, I wish I'd known of them earlier. Now I just hope that eBay doesn't just swallow them up and digest them into oblivion. (And thank you for posting the URL!)

camelcamelcamel.com is the one I know of. You can get emails sent when the price drops on something you are interested in. I think it works for Amazon, Best Buy, and NewEgg.

@pitamuffin: That's the one I signed up for through Amazon. The other one pulled info from a bunch of places.

@minkeygirl7: There's also zoolert.com. I've used them to track toys, but haven't used them for electronics. Might be worth checking out, though.

Pricewatch.com has always been good for electronics and all kinds of tech stuff. I even found the best price on a replacement dlp bulb for my son's tv.

@keystone: If you're looking for say a 39" at a certain price it will show you those but unless I'm using it wrong, I can't enter the specific TV I'm looking for to find out if there are any price changes. Decide.com was great for that.

@minkeygirl7: You can search by specific model or by features including price. I just looked up a specific model for a friend who was out shopping and wanted to know if it was a good price on the tv she was looking at. Turns out she could save another $200 at Amazon. ;-)

@keystone: Thanks. I had just typed in the name and size but not the specific model. It's probably staring me in the face but I can't' figure out how to set alerts? Or do I have to keep going back to check? And if so, how do I set up things in MY PRICEWATCH?

Thanks

@pitamuffin: Well, it came in handy today. I was looking at wireless printers yesterday and the one I wanted was around $135 or more depending.

I just bought it for $69.99! Even posted the deal

Thanks for helping me spend my money on something I didn't really need.
