#1. Get notified about the price drop

Click on this deals link and login to your Amazon account. Add your favorite products in the cart even if you have no plans to buy right away.

I use this trick to save money on the items which I don’t need right away.

You will receive email notifications from Amazon whenever there is any change in the prices of products.

You can also add products to your wishlist. You will see how much price has been dropped since you added the product into your wishlist.

Ask your friends or the relatives if you don’t have HDFC card. You can read HDFC credit cards reviews and apply for HDFC credit card.

Amazon keeps on giving similar big discounts with SBI Credit Cards, Citibank Credit Card and ICICI bank credit cards as well. This time HDFC card holders will get lucky.
