Lightning for Mac

Lightning for Mac brings Amazon's Gold Box deals straight to your dashboard, enabling you to take advantage of them before they expire. A widget made for passionate shoppers, Lightning makes shopping for special deals on Amazon faster and easier.

Lightning connects to Amazon.com and fetches the latest Gold Box deal and displays it in a streamlined interface. In case you don't know, Gold Box deals are outstanding offers available only for a limited time. In the main app window you will find the product name and image, the time left before the deal expires, a review section, and the percentage of people taking the deal, as well as the list price, discount, and deal purchase price. The current deal is highlighted in red for easy viewing. The app also provides a link through which you can quickly purchase a deal. There aren't any other features or options, but Lightning does exactly what it promises to do.

Want to keep up with the latest Amazon bargains and buy the best ones as soon as they're available? If yes, Lightning is definitely for you. Its nicely-designed product display window and seamless integration with Amazon.com make it a useful, little tool for any shopper -- one that can really help you grab the best deals.
