Product Price Trending and Comparisons

It's nice to have a good idea of what other companies are charging for a particular product you wish to purchase. Even better to have some trending data as to how much this product costs in the past and present. All of this data together can help you make some informed buying decisions.

Here are a few tools that I use every time I want to purchase an item online

Shopbot

Compares the prices of many of the popular online retailers. You can specify a price range and apply a sorting algorithm to the results to find what you're looking for.

Deal Genius

This site provides price comparison directly to other retailers but also provides graphs of price trends over time.

CamelEgg

Finally camelegg provides great technology price comparison over a few major retailers (amazon, bestbuy, newegg). You can see price trending over time and even setup notifications to get an email or a tweet when a price hits the range in which you are willing to shell out the money for it.
