Amazon.com bargain watch is live

Posted by ,

The feed from Amazon.com is now up and running, thanks in part to DrDave, and the discounted sets page is live. There may be a few teething troubles during the first few days but I'll fix them if they happen: it's difficult to test the code other than on the live website (since I don't have an online test and development environment), so bear with me...

We are not anticipating a huge number of alerts because of the relatively static nature of the prices at Amazon.com, and the 30% threshold which we've set it at currently, but I guess we'll see...

Threre are plenty of 'buy now' links to LEGO. They don't care whether you buy from them or Amazon: it's all profit for them. And, yes that is my daughter.

@Huw: Put a LEGOShop.com banner anyway on the front page, what's the harm in doing so? :P It'll make LEGO happy. :P

^ I don't want to clutter the site up too much and it's largely redundant given the 'new at legoshop.com' contains links to there.

@Huw: The list of banners would look impressive. :P Look at the Brothers Brick: http://www.brothers-brick.com/ They only have TWO banners! We would have three!... :P We would have bragging rights!... :P Alright, not interested, right?... :P

This benefits me a bit more.

There is a shop.lego.com banner on the homepage.

EDIT: HUWBOT! Ha Ha Ha!
