Price tracker alternative retailers lookup

port23user 29 52 August 28, 2015 at 12:11 AM
I'm so disappointed that Amazon opted out of the Slickdeals Price Tracker (http://slickdeals.net/f/8065420-amazon-on-sd-price-tracker). This was one of my favorite tools.

1. Just like how Slickdeals finds alternative retailers selling the same product, can you at least allow us to enter an Amazon URL to find alternative retailers that sell it?
2. I think I had some price trackers that disappeared. Is there a way to at least show which products those were?

1. No, we are no longer allowed to pull their pages, so we can't even tell what product it is from a URL.

Hi port23user,

We're just as disappointed as you are and we're looking into what this means for the future of Price Tracker if we're not able to support Amazon. This is a decision that was out of our hands and we're trying out best to get them back in.

Regarding your second comment, this would occur if a product is not sold at any of our supported stores. I can send you a private message of those items.

We apologize for this inconvenience.

Seriously Amazon? That means I would buy less from you! Very dumb idea lol.

Also disappointed. I had just started to give the price tracker a real shot and really started to like it. Then boom, got an error whenever I punched in an amazon url after trying to re-enter a few items that got deleted from the list.
