Actual Money Saving Software: Keepa

It seems like every week there's a new app coming out that will be our financial salvation, and all the personal finance blogs can't wait to tell us about them (often because they get kickbacks from the company). Unfortunately, I've never found any of these apps particularly useful. Most of them are super gimmicky and don't actually save you any money. I'm also tired of creating new accounts with anyone, especially ones that have my financial information.

Now that' I'm done being a downer, I want to tell you about an awesome piece of software that has actually saved me a lot of money. It's called Keepa, and it's actually a browser extension.

Editors Note:  We are not being compensated by Keepa to endorse their product, nor do we have any sort of affiliate relationship. We are simply very satisfied users who want to share this great product.

Keepa is a very simple tool that helps you save money when you shop on Amazon. After you install the extension (available here for Chrome or here for Firefox) it will automatically insert a line graph of an item's price history into it's Amazon listing (it also does price alerts and other things, but we haven't used any of that). That may not sound like it will save you money, but it does. I will explain how using a real purchase we made.


After buying a truck and a camper, I needed a way to attach the two of them, and decided a product made by Torklift was the best option. It's price was $327 pretty much everywhere, including Amazon, and I needed it for an upcoming trip, so I was prepared to bite the bullet and spend the money, until I looked at the Keepa graph on the Amazon page. The price seemed to go down for a short time at the beginning of every month. It was the end of March, so I decided to wait a few days and see if the price would go down again soon. Not only did it go down, it went down significantly. The normal price at the time was $326.99 but it went down to $254.30 and I pounced on it. That equates to a savings of $72.69 on a single purchase, all thanks to Keepa.

Since that purchase, Keepa has saved us money on a number of occasions, and I am thankful for it every time I'm shopping on Amazon.
