    I also like Invisible Hand. Although it doesn't always appear, and doesn't always match products correctly, it's often right and sometimes helpful.

    If you followed the links you could figure them out, but I guess you want help with that.

    The camel thing produces graphs of prices over time. That way you can see if the current price is common, overpriced, or a good deal, at a particular store.

    Invisible Hand, on the other...you know...comparison shops for you between stores, and shows you which stores it thinks currently have a better price. (It's not always right.)

    Its a nice tool but I only want a couple things this year, and I know what their prices are.

    I also know from past years that most consumer products slowly raise in price before black friday so stores look like they are giving people a bigger discount.

    Do they have mobile apps, perhaps with barcode scanning? Cuz that would be infinitely more useful than having to drive home for a price check.
