      Camel Camel Camel is a website. I have it on my speed dial, but I’m pretty sure it’s just CamelCamelCamel.com.

        Thanks! I found it.

    Ebates yes good for only certain categories like jewelry. Be careful with swagbucks, they randomly close accounts with no notice and explanation. You lose all your points when they do this. May be easy but it’s time consuming and not worth it when they can pull such bs on a whim

    Dear Common Sense with Money, I lub you. I just signed up with camelcamelcamel.com and have already been impressed with their set up. It was easy enough to import my Amazon wishlists, PLUS it showed a price history of the items on my wishlists going back to August of 2013. This is fantastic because it gives me an idea of how low I can possibly expect an item to drop in price. Out of all the “money-saver” emails I’ve ever set up to receive, yours is the only one I have been loyal to for years. 🙂

      Yay! I’m glad to hear it, and thank you for being a loyal reader! Without readers like you we wouldn’t have been able to go strong for as long as we have.

      We LUB you too! 😀
