This actually works pretty well, I've gotten some crazy good deals on new name brand stuff this way before, so thought I'd share:

 

I am doing the same thing also with amazon, but it has been almost two years now you can not find amazing discounts on amazon, also I don't see anything proper on eBay in auction anymore.

I'm still finding stuff. Not a tool but literally today I got a $3065 JBL VRX918SP subwoofer (it's a pro audio sub, I do live sound on the side) for $1460 (Canadian Dollars). I had followed it for a week and was dropping $80/day roughly, finally bit on it when it got below half price. Cost on these is $2000+ so it's definitely a loss for amazon and a gain for me :)

 

I also have recently picked up a Nicholson file for $6.98 when they're regular $15-20, not a sale, clearing out one model. I've also had a few Mitutoyo deals over the last year, $150 dollar measuring instruments for $50-60.

Yes, I do find things also, but maximum like 20-30% discount, not like before the pandemic that I could find stuff with 80% discount. I am a regular checker on eBay and amazon. You could find a lot of Add On items on amazon but I don't see them anymore. I also did buy a lot of things on amazon that I paid much more than a normal price just because it was only available on amazon, so I feel it has been fair at the end, it is not easy to find things in UK, not even in online shops, a bit fed up of searching things online for hours. I know an online tool accessory shop from Germany and you can see "Don't search, Find!" on the main page :)))) He can basically provide most of the tool accessories from any brand you want.

If you want to get the goods cheaper on amazon what I would advise is to not put reviews like 4 or 5 stars, as soon as any product gets stars more than 4 for a while price goes up, it is like we are helping them to sell things for higher prices to us. and reviews on amazon are not too reliable I feel.
