Automated Amazon Purchasing

Earlier today there was a issue with Amazon’s promo code system that caused Amazon Echo’s to be free for Prime customers.

Like we did with Draft Kings historical contests, we wrote a script so next time you can buy as many free Echo’s as possible.[1]I was able to purchase 10

The script:

  1. Opens Chrome
  2. Goes to the product page url you entered
  3. Signs in
  4. Adds the product to cart.
  5. Uses your default payment and shipping options
  6. And finally, checks the total price to make sure it is $0 or whatever you’ve set as your MAX_BUY_PRICE.

To install the script follow the steps in the README.
