Amazon is a big, big marketplace.
They have a customer base of 300 million, net income was $136 billion in 2016 and growing.
They sell everything from groceries to electronics...and to cycling.
And you know what, the Sports & Outdoors category, which cycling is part of is among their fastest growing in the past year.
But here's the thing with Amazon:
Their website is complicated. There are hundreds of links everywhere and the links to the best deals are not easily found.
And that's the reason for this article.
I'll show you 5 ways you can get the best out of your Amazon shopping.
So let's dive straight in...
Each day, Amazon will have a number of items across the category to be on discount for one day only.
Discount usually varies by item but you can expect it to be anywhere between 10% to 60%.
If you're worried that you might miss out on deals, you can sign up for their daily alert. That way you won't miss out any good deals!
The cycling products are parked under a larger category, Outdoors & Sports.
Similar to the physical outlet stores, the Amazon Outlet contains items that are either on marked down, overstocked, old stock or clearance.
You'll probably won't find any of the latest models here but if you don't mind older models, this is a good place to start looking for deals.
Many people don't know about the existence of the Amazon Warehouse. Even many of the frequent Amazon shoppers don't know about this.
If you go to Amazon.com, the link to the Warehouse is right at the bottom, and in the smallest font possible.
The Amazon Warehouse is where you'll find items that are either opened, returned, used or refurbished.

Track Amazon's Prices
Amazon's prices fluctuates on a daily basis and sometimes it can be confusing.
If you're not in a hurry to buy the item, then you can afford to play wait and see. Go to CamelCamelCamel to check the item's price history to see if it's at the lowest. Otherwise, you have the option to wait.
Below is an example of the Garmin Edge 520 bundle's price on Amazon for the past 12 months. You can see that it's at the all time low in December 2017, just in time for Christmas shopping.
