I have an order in my cart and waiting to pull the trigger in case the item goes on sale, but everyday it seems as if a couple get bought.

Is there any way to tell if a title will be going on sale in the near term, or is it just buy it or wait and see if it goes on sale while potentially missing out on the item?

If the retailer has a limited stock, and it's getting sold regularly, there's no reason for them to put it on sale. If the in-stock amount wasn't changing, you'd have more reason to expect a sale to clear the inventory.

Kinda what I thought, but just wanted to hear it from someone else.

Thanks.

Yeah, a guaranteed way to see it go on sale is to buy it at inflated price on the second-hand market.

Luck. I've had Quantum on my az wish list for some time, but price never went down. yesterday I opened up the app and without even going to the wish list saw it advertised on homepage for $40 w/ prime. After I bought it, I went back and it was back up to $79.

Yours doesn't require an app.
