Farecast.com is a fairly popular site that many of you might already know.It is an excellent resource to check before purchasing an airline ticket and get a buy now or wait suggestion.
Farecast analyses past historical data and provide recommendations on if the flight ticket price you are interested in is supposed to stay the same or rise or drop (even by how much). This can be handy when you are unsure if a good deal might come along after you bought the ticket.
Farecast also shows how high low the current price is to the previous average. As you can see, my flight to Vegas right now is $64 less than the average and it is predicted to rise.
Also, you can get an idea on when to travel to a place if your dates are flexible. Or you can find out where to travel on particular dates based on flight ticket prices.
Farecast has a beta version of Hotel room prices too. I haven’t tried this yet but it’ll be interesting to see how this will work for hotels.
PriceAmbush.com is a shopping service that tracks product prices and emails if the price product drops. If you think, the price of iPod Touch is high right now, go to PriceAmbush and search for it. Then just click on ‘Add Alert’ to enter your email address and target price.
Also, check out the cloud tag to see the top products being searched by folks. Here is a sample how a search for Canon Rebel XTi looks like.
What are you waiting for? If you already know what you are going to get your wife this Christmas, jump to PriceAmbush and set up an alert to watch for price drops.
