Description from store ****IMPORTANT NOTICE**** Since 0.5.0 - The AmzVar has been rebranded to "Amazon Shopping Assistant" (previously it was called "Price Checker of Amazon Variations") The new extension does not provide the price list of Amazon Variations, but it allows you to check the price history of most products, prices from different sellers, and alternatives from other websites. We hope it could help you to make the right decision. BEFORE YOU BUY, LET'S DO SOME RESEARCH... @shopecific Sep 3, 2022 ************************ Because Amazon does not allow its API to be used in the Browser Extension, AmzVar no longer works as before. We are looking for new ideas, in the meantime, you might continue to use AmzVar to check the Price History and All Prices of the current product. @shopecific Apr 9, 2018 ************************ ************************ The amzvar - Before you buy, let's do some research... Currently works for amazon.com & amazon.ca, i.e., United states & Canada region. ===BELOW DESCRIPTIONS ARE KEPT FOR REFERENCE=== You're buying a swimming jammer. When you land on a jammer product page, it shows the price of $14 - $35, but it doesn't tell the specific price until you select the size and color, and then it takes you a lot of clicks to find out the one that was $14, but actually, it's not the right size for you. Does this scenario sound familiar? If so, you come to the right place. The amzVar was born to solve this issue. It pops up when you are viewing products that have variations on Amazon, provides the list of variations (for example, color and size) sorted by price, and saves you a lot of time to find the lowest price. Since V0.2.0, it also includes price history powered by camelcamelcamel. Note that not all products have a price history available. Since V0.3.0, it shows product recommendations when the product does not have variation. The amzVar Chrome Extension's key features include: - List variation sorted by price - Filter variation by size - Add to cart button to get a special price (*not* include shipping and tax, so please double check before checkout) - Provide the link to see all offers to compare the price with shipping and tax Stay in touch: Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/shopecific Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/shopecific Change logs: **Version 0.4.0 (3/26/2018)** 1.

  • (2023-03-29) Chris Liu: What is the point of allowing this to remain in the Google Webstore when it obviously no longer works due to Amazon's API limitations?
  • (2021-01-29) Nave Flow: "AmzVar no longer works as before" Ok. But it's a major feature so it's like it doesn't work at all.
  • (2020-08-13) Shawna Swisher: I want to love this app, I use it frequently... But I feel like every time I download it I only get a month or so for it to work, and then have to delete and download again. The concept is great, LOVE when it works as it saves me time and money frequently... Just wish it would continue to work.
