With black Friday sales coming up, we realized that some companies bump up their prices before putting them on sale. This leads to the product not having as big of a discount as they claim.
What it does
This app will track the price and will give the exact price when an item is on sale as well as the previous price via email. The products being tracked are registered by the user via a UI.
How we built it
We used Python to build out the logic part. This includes, taking in the data from user, checking the prices and sending out the emails. The server where we store our data was built with sql.
Challenges we ran into
The sql was not working properly which would cause the server to crash. It was very difficult to take the price from the amazon website.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are able to send out an email to anyone with the different attributes from sql.
What we learned
We learned how to use selenium and sql.
What's next for Amazon Discount Giver
Making an interactive UI for the User. Also run the server on an actual server so it can run forever.
