A good sound system can get expensive, but it also has the potential to last for several years or more. It’s therefore wise to hunt for a good deal, and they’re certainly out there – we’ve seen some of our favorite speakers get discounted significantly:
How do you find these deals though?
Well, there’s no perfect substitute for the good ol’ fashioned online hustle. But, one great way to do this is to filter an Amazon search by % discount. We’ve done this for you – just click this customized link to see all speaker products that are currently discounted by 25% or more. If you follow it and see something you have your eye on, or that we’ve strongly reviewed here, chances are now’s as good a time as any to pull the trigger.
This link modifier is effective, but not well known, and as far as we can tell you need to do it manually. Maybe Amazon will implement it in their sidebar at some point? Who knows. Regardless, the format is:
&pct-off=X-100 – substitute a number in for “X,” for example 25 for a range 25% – 100% off, which you can actually see in the link above:
Simply add that code to any Amazon URL, and you should see a search query modifier that looks like this:
Once you manually edit the URL like such, you can continue to click-browse around Amazon and do new searches with the same discount filter applied, which you’ll be able to continue to see like above. Doing a new key-phrase entered search clears the filter though, so if you do a new manual search you’ll have to reapply the code to your URL.
One word of caution: Sometimes speakers get discounted when they’re being offloaded to 3rd party sellers. While a warranty might normally include direct Amazon.com purchases, it might not cover purchases from 3rd party sellers. Something to be aware of.
