Prices up across the board
It's been a while, but it looks like Amazon's raising prices pretty much across the board.

Hang on, the deals will return.  They always do :)

Still going up.  :( Has it ever gone on this long before? Usually it's only for a few days, isn't it? I'm a little worried it's permanent.

This is the longest one I've seen.  Generally, they've been between a few days and a week.

I'm still sure it'll let up -- question is when.  Hopefully clearing the way for some big holiday markdowns. :)

It looks like the price hikes are finally over.  25 days is a new record!

Bring on the deals.

Are they?  :D

In September, before the prices started going up, AWD had incredible price drops where an item would go crazy low but only for like two minutes. Thanks to your website, I got a three piece luggage set for under $25! I hope they do those awesome price drops again.

Oh yeah, we've been on a great price decline since 10/26 or so.  I created a little analytics site to show the daily price stats (updated every 5 mins)

That's cool. Have you noticed any patterns in the price drops? Like a time or day of the week that's the best for price drops?

There used to be "the lull" which was between noon and 9PM ish where nothing would happen.  Now it seems relatively consistent, with the major changes happening around midnight ish?
