Is there any grocery price tracker that sends out alerts on pre-defined items?

I'd like something that would track the price of grocery items and tell me when chicken/broccoli/whatever is at a low price. For example, if my item is at a price that is seen only for 6 weeks / year I want an alert.

If it doesnt exist, maybe it could be created by scraping flipp.com flyer prices?

I think this is what you are looking for:
https://www.salewhale.ca/en/
I wasn't aware of this website - thanks!

It is very close to what I want, but I t is missing something. I might also have missed the feature.

It does allow me to create an alert for a product (say "boneless chicken"), but then I expect to get an alert every week because someone has it on sale every week. The little extra I am missing would be some price history graph (like those on the tech website such as comparator.ca) that would allow me to know if this is a run-of-the-mill sale or a "stock up for 3 months in the freezer" sale.

Basically, I'd love to receive an alert for "boneless chicken", but only when it is an actual really good deal.

cheers!
