Yan Bezugliy of ProBargainHunter.com has a very effective way to find clearance items on Amazon. Just add &pct-off=percent at the end of the amazon URL, where percent can be a number to get exact discount % (like &pct-off=60-), or a range (like &pct-off=50-70):
It’s easy to customize the link by changing the department (which is the number after “node=”) and/or discount percentage. For example:
- Link to 60% off Office Products http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=1064954&pct-off=60-
- Link to 85% off Electronics: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=172282&pct-off=85-
- Link to 70% off Apparel: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/?node=1036682&pct-off=70-
