The Story and How it works
Prices constantly change. Sometimes you are lucky to pay a fair price for a product you long desired, but most of the time you are overpaying thinking the “deal” you see is something you shouldn’t miss. That is not true and here is why: Most sellers put items in Amazon with high list-price and later they lower it to the actual price they are going to sell, and bingo! Amazon return this usual price as an outstanding deal.
Here is nice example and now look to the actual price history of this product. Isn’t it obvious that 58% is nothing but fake deal. Did you noticed the real deal in chart?
And this motivated us to create our tool Mattresscore . With Mattresscore you’re guaranteed to get best mattress deals in Amazon based on the price tracking tool we have built. All the below products’ prices are tracked daily for period of 100 days.
Our deal is neither compared to yesterday’s price nor compared to the last price. We calculate the average price for 100 days and give a deal metric that fair considering how things changed over the last 100 days, so you know what’s the fair price and sellers didn’t just increase the list price and set up a “deal” for you.
For example Example Mattress recorded prices are as follows:
- 20.10.2017 – $595
- 21.10.2017 – $595
- 22.10.2017 – $595
- 23.10.2017 – $595
- 24.10.2017 – $595
- 25.10.2017 – $595
- 26.10.2017 – $495
- 27.10.2017 – $495
- 28.10.2017 – $595
- 29.10.2017 – $595
The average will be (8*595 + 2*495)/10 = $575 and on 30.10.2017 the price become lets say 400$ , in this case Mattresscore will be equal to (Avg.Price – Price.now)/ Avg.Price * 100%
To emphasize again, Amazon compares the current price with list price (which usually is set higher) and announces a deal suggesting you are saving X% on your purchase. The fact is that you’re not saving anything compared let’s say a week ago makes that a fabricated Deal. The another thing which is common in Amazon is that sometimes price is being lowered but it’s not marked as deal at all and here again our tool can spot those changes bringing the best mattress deals in one clear format.
So what is the best approach to use our tool ?
- If Mattresscore is more than %15 – consider it as a good deal
- If it’s in range %20-35% – act fast it will not last long
- over 35% – GRAB IT
