How Do I Get 75 – 99% Off? I Want To Bag An Amazon Basement Bargain!!

The objective here is to fiddle with the category’s web address code. This will help you search for these huge discounts! I will show you an easy way with the use of a template and a way of finding the node code, which you can integrate. Bear with this, all will be revealed by the end of this hub.

Right, you will now need to open up a web page on your browser.

  • Go to the amazon.com or amazon.co.uk homepage.
  • Click on ‘Shop All Departments’ advertised in orange. Here, on the next page, you will see lists of categories and sub categories.
  • Click on the desired category. For example, I clicked on ‘Video Games’. In the URL address bar, highlight, right click your computer mouse or pad and choose the ‘copy’ option. You can also perform this action by pressing Ctrl + C.

Have a ‘word-type’ or word processing document page already open.

Paste this code onto your open word processing page. To paste: You will need to right click your computer mouse or pad and select the ‘paste’ option. You can also perform this action by pressing Ctrl + V.


Going back to my ‘video games’ example, this is what I got. The same rule goes with whatever your desired category is:

amazon.com/

computer-video-games-hardware-accessories/b/ref=sd_allcat_cvg?ie=UTF8&node=468642

Now, I will dissect some of this code with this example. You just do the same with your code, but first let me explain the first part of the code.

amazon.com/

computer-video-games-hardware-accessories/

b/ref=sd_allcat_cvg?ie=UTF8&node=468642

Now, the highlighted first part of the code is self-explanatory. You have the main amazon url address – amazon.com. It has a follow on extension characterised by a forward slash - / - then there is the category and sub-categories ‘computer video games hardware accessories’ followed by another forward slash. No spaces are allowed in the address bar, so this can be filled by either an underscore, characterised like this: _ or a hyphen, characterised by this: - .

amazon.com/

computer-video-games-hardware-accessories/

b/ref=sd_allcat_cvg?ie=UTF8&node=468642

The bold highlight is a further extension. This references and indexes an item’s page.

What we are really interested in is the number at the end of the address after ‘node=’. I made a reference to this at the beginning of the hub. This is the node code. This is amazon’s category code number. I have highlighted my example in bold below:

amazon.com/

computer-video-games-hardware-accessories/

b/ref=sd_allcat_cvg?ie=UTF8&node=468642

The number is important. It is the department’s special node code.

Now, I am going to help you with a code template for you to use and refer to. This will help you find all the bargains in your chosen category! All you will need to do is copy and paste the code into the template. You then highlight the whole code and paste it into a newly opened browser page. This will take you directly to that category’s discount page. It will search items in that category with a minimum of 75% to a maximum of 99%.



-* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--*

This is the template code!

http://www.amazon.com./gp/search/?node= &pct-off=75-99

Where you see the gap, copy and paste your special node code. DO NOT HAVE ANY SPACES – DELETE THESE! See my example for further clarification:

Add by pasting, or just typing, the special node code that you have found earlier. In my example it is 468642. Delete spaces, so it looks like this:

http://www.amazon.com./gp/search/?node=468642&pct-off=75-99

Now, you will see amazing discounts for that category anytime.

-* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--*

TIP! Template for the UK

I have geared this hub primarily to amazon.com. Here is the template for amazon.co.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk./gp/search/?node= &pct-off=75-99

The system is exactly the same! Just copy, paste or type the desired node code number into the space. Remember…don’t leave any spaces! Copy and paste the new URL into an open browser. Click, go and now you have basement bargains in your desired categories!


-* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--* -*--*

I just gave this one a up rating, it is pretty darn cool what you got here. How did you find this out? I had no idea that you could potentially find such great deals tweaking the url. I wonder if amazon does not really want people to find the biggest discounts?

Thanks Kirstenblog.. Yes, I don't think Amazon would like to find out that their cover has been blown! hehehe.

If you look closely at all URL codes, you can decipher the page. If you look at any shopping site, take their discount page - this will be standardised for all. Really look at the coding. Look for the common codes for categories and just mess about to see what happens! Create your own templates and grab bargains from all shops!

The key here is research the common numbers and letters. Ellmenate the obvious... like hubpages.com/hub/ this is obvious, isn't it? Then work on what is left.

Start from the discount part of a site and work back. Anaylise the commonalities and make note of these. Then you will be able to see how a shop builds its pages.

Does this make sense?

Somehow I don't see it working. As long as its legal I have no problem going straight to the bargains. I've tried this several times and it seems to have been "fixed" or I'm not as computer geeky as I thought. :)
