    Find Amazon's secret bargain basement
    [​IMG] Amazon often offers 90% and better reductions, yet it directs people to other areas, sending them to higher profit margin products instead.

    Yet there's a geeky way to generate pages that list all these deals. All you need do is fiddle with Amazon web addresses (URLs) to bring up lists of knock-down prices. The trick may sound like something out of Spooks, but it's legal and easy to do.

    When searching for treasure, don't just look at the first page of bargains, try a few. Do bear in mind that this system is a bit of fun and is not infallible, ie, sometimes it throws up the odd 50% off item when you asked for 70% off and up. Just scan past these to see if there are any uber bargains. And don't assume just because its discounted its a good buy.

    Do beware though, as tip 4 below explains, not all items have free delivery, so just do the search and then click ‘free supersaver delivery’ on the left. Only items with free delivery will show, and Marketplace sellers where delivery isn't free will be excluded from the search.

    Before we show you how to create them, if you're not techie, here are some popular web addresses we made earlier:
