A list of Amazon RSS feeds for 2018

Amazon RSS feeds

I’ve updated and expanded the list of Amazon RSS feeds for 2018. Amazon provides RSS feeds for Best Sellers, New Releases, Movers & Shakers, Most Wished For and Gift Ideas. Because they’re difficult to locate on Amazon, I’ve added links below to 175 Amazon RSS feeds across five categories.

If you would like to find more feeds you can navigate to this page on Amazon and choose one of the tabs and departments. At the bottom of each department page there is a link to an RSS feed. There are hundreds of sub-departments for which you can find feeds.
