Software Description:

ShadowBid is an automated wishlist to help you save money on all your online shopping. We show you any product currently sold on Amazon, give a nice visualization of the price history in an easy to read chart, and then let you choose the price you want to pay for that item. Once you set your price, we then track the price on Amazon, and when it drops, YOU WIN! We will automatically make the purchase for you when the price drops, and often at a price below what you were willing to pay!
A lot of people don't know this, but Amazon changes prices up to 80 million times every day. And those price changes aren't small either. Our community has seen savings as high as 75% and over $1000 on single purchases!
If you're still paying the price that Amazon shows at any given time, you're likely wasting 100's of dollars every year. Stop throwing your money away.
