How to get email notifications when items on my wishlist goes on sale? (Amazon.ca)

I can't seem to find it in settings or my account page. Is there a way to achieve this on Amazon.ca without using third party sites/apps?

Nope, amazon also removed the "filter items with price drops" feature on the wish list page and the sort items by % discount features. They don't want you to be on the look out for items on sale!

Yea, the only problem is you buy a lot of stuff because it's on sale, lol.

Also, it almost feels like camelx3 tells sellers/amazon what someone is willing to pay, because I often get deals soon after setting a price in camelx3. Could be confirmation bias though.

I don't know about that. Sometimes it takes months and months for a deal to come through.
Though I did get a $260 multimeter for $170, so it was worth the wait. Winking Face

Under *eepa there's "community tracking" detailing the avg price the number of people willing to pay, which could potentially be naturally skewed by lowballers or "inflated".

If you paid for the API, you might see the actual distribution and manipulate price/quantity accordingly.

Camels changed my amazon shopping life. I probably buy more on Amazon now because of it, not just for the sale notifications but just having the ability to check the price history as well.
