black-friday

Black Friday with Python. Monitor your favorite item's price online this season.
SMS and Enail notifications if there's any price change.
Get those 'fastest finger' deals first.

How it wroks:

  • You can use this script on any website as long as you can extract an item's price using BeautifulSoup.
  • For this script, we are monitoring the iphone 6s plus at https://shop.simplemobile.com/shop/en/simplemobile/phones/sm-iphone-6s-plus-32gb
  • The price is currently at $199.99 and is expected to come around $149.99 in a fastest finger deal.
  • The script checks the price of the phone every hour (You can change this) and checks if theres a change in price yet.
  • Once there's a change, email and SMS alerts are triggered and sent to you with a customised message and its link.

Tools to have:

  • You need to have a twilio account (free or paid) for the SMS service.
  • You need to have a google App Password and 2FA configured on your device for the email service (The most secure way).
