Okay, so what is the technique behind? And how if you prefer to get it done manually?
First, you need to understand how Amazon organizes all its web pages. Amazon is using browse nodes to identify specific pages and product categories. This means every product category has own unique browse node, for example the category “Electronic” appear as such in address bar:

The node number is always after ‘node=’, which in this case is 172282 and it is unique code for this particular category. This number is important as it helps you to find all the bargains in chosen category. Below is a list of category node numbers I been used in “Amazon Secret Bargain” tool and I do believe it covers pretty much of the available categories.

To apply these node number, simply type the node number after

in the address bar. Your browser will then directs you to that specific category page.

However, this is not our final goal yet. The next step is to tell Amazon to display all the bargains in that particular category. For instance, if you looking for items more than 75% off, simply apply this code after the node number.


Therefore, the complete URL should be :

the number “75-99” means “Discount from 75% to 99%”, where you can put in any number to indicate any discount rate.

Well, now is the time to practices!

Uhm…how if we want to find items in “Toys and Games” with more than 50% off?
