Camelcamelcamel has been since forever the go-to free tool for Amazon price tracking.
Table of Contents
With its intuitive interface, Amazon clients and, also, Sellers, can easily monitor Amazon product prices, get real-time alerts when prices drop and even dig into historical price charts
However, this is not the only free Amazon price tracker around. There are several CamelCamelCamel alternatives available for different platforms, including Web-based, Android, iPhone, Google Chrome, and iPad apps.
While Camelcamelcamel is THE TOP (not just for me, but for many users), there are more than 50 alternatives that offer unique features. Of course, we won't mention every alternative available, but we'll list the main ones. Some of these alternatives are not just Price Trackers but also serve as Price Comparison Services or even Online Shops. Depending on your specific requirements, you might find one of these alternatives more suited for what you need.
Let's check'em out!
Top Alternatives to Camelcamelcamel
Often considered the best alternative to Camelcamelcamel, Keepa offers a free platform that provides price tracking for Amazon products and more:
- Hourly updated pricing information on more than 3,000M Amazon products
- Track products and get alerts when there's a new review, a price drop, a new seller added to the listing, etc
- Data: Product finder, product viewer, best seller lists, top seller lists and more
- Category tree: complete category tree for every Amazon Marketplace including number of products available on each category
- API to connect external tools and extract data
While Keepa is free, there's a 19€ monthly fee / 189€ year so you can unlock the premium features, including: Product finder Product viewer Best seller lists Top seller list Category tree Price increase tracking.
Savelist is a simple website where you can add you favourite products and you'll get an alert to your email once there's a price drop or an offer. Works, not just for Amazon, but for every online store available on the Internet.
Savelist is free. They add affiliate links to some of the saved items so they can make a comission on every sale.
You simple download their free extension and add products as you browse the store, for example, Amazon:
Fetchee ensures you never miss out on a deal by tracking price drops across various online stores. It's available online, as an iOS app and as an Android app.
Fetchee is free and, as Savelist or CamelCamelCamel, they also add affiliate links to some of the saved items so they can make a comission on every sale.
Price Snoop is a Chrome Extension to compare prices accross Amazon Marketplaces while you browse the site.
It's also a free tool working with affiliate links but, unlike the rest of their competitors, it doesn't work for every Amazon Marketplace. Is just works for the European Marketplaces:
As you can see, it has some bugs with the pricings xD
TheTracktor is a free Chrome Extension to track price drops on Amazon products accross every Amazon Marketplace worldwide. Works like CamelCamelCamel so, while you browse the Marketplace, you can add the products to a wishlist and get alerts once their prices drop.
As the rest os the tools, they add affiliate links to some of the saved items so they can make a comission on every sale and, also, monetize using Google Adsense.
We could say that Prisync is a more serious CamelCamelCamel alternative as it's neither free or just a price tracker.Prisync is a dynamic price tracking tool that offers insights into competitor pricing. So it's not for regular users or Amazon customers, but for Sellers. Includes also a repricer for different sales channels.

Conclusion and comparison
While Camelcamelcamel remains THE popular choice for many (that includes me), the landscape offers more alternatives from free to paid. Most of them work like a charm too but don't offer the same as CamelCamelCamel, which is real time alerts via email, 5 languages and 5 different pricing settings so, to me, CamelCamelCamel remains the top choice when it comes to free Amazon price tracking.
