Great Amazon plugin (price history + comparison)

Some weeks ago I started using camelcamelcamel.com, but recently I switched to http://keepa.com/ which seems to be even better. You can use the features directly from the website, but the browser plugin (Chrome & Firefox) is even better. What it does is that it gives you a price history graph for any product, so in this way you can know if you are buying at the right time. Another great feature is that with one click you can compare the prices of that product to all other Amazon stores, so you can buy it where it is cheaper. You can also very easily set alerts that will email you when any of the products you are interested in drops below a price you specify in one or more Amazon stores.

By the way ... I used to shop only from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, but the other Amazon stores (.de, .it and .es) often have better prices and since you are paying in Euro you don't get charged any currency exchange fees when using a Cyprus credit card. Another thing to note is that many countries have higher VAT rate than Cyprus, but when you buy from Amazon you pay the 19% Cyprus VAT, so usually the price is lower than the one shown. The VAT in UK is 20%, Germany 19%, Spain 21% and Italy 22%). So if the price of something at Amazon.it is shown as €122 what you will actually pay is €119 (plus shipping).
