Online shoppers find ways to get deep discounts

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A lot of consumers turn to the internet when they want to find bargains these days but there are some deeper discounts to be found there, if you know where to look.

Most Amazon shoppers know how to find secret deals on Amazon.com by using coupons on the home page. Did you know about typing "Amazon Family" into the search box though? That's how you'll find deeper, secret savings on family-oriented products.
 
You don't have to be an Amazon Prime member to score the site's secret savings. Kyle James of Rather Be Shopping.com says any Amazon customer can use the Amazon tracking site camel, camel camel.com.
 
For example, let's say you buy a $400 TV from Amazon and you track that purchase on camel, camel camel.com and see the TV's price suddenly dropped to $350. Remember, Amazon offers every customer a seven day price protection that will pay you back that price drop!
 
James says you can either start a live chat session or you can call their customer service line, let them know about the price drop and they're going to refund that $50 back to your credit card.
 
Other retailers will sometimes price-match Amazon.com, if you have the proof. Blogger Jessica White scoped out a television at Best Buy for $2100, 
but then she found it on Amazon.com for $600 cheaper!

White says she took her phone to Best Buy and they price-matched it and was able to go home that same day with a cheaper TV.
