Is it OK for Amazon to mention prices like "around $50"?

    I know Amazon doesn't want us to mention the exact product prices on our pages, but would something like "around $50", "for around $65", etc. be okay with them?

    I don't think it's allowed.
    Most of the time, i present products with a table, and in the column "price" i put : $, $$, $$$,...

    However, I've seen a lot of website featuring amazon affiliate products showing the exact price... which is prohibited. Do you sure that Amazon really takes action on webmaster not respecting this guideline ?

    No it's not allowed, it will be a red flag to your account.

    Guys, don't talk about stuff you have no idea about. It's totally fine, we have been doing this for more than 7 years, never a problem. Doesn't violate any part of the Amazon TOS if you read them correctly.

    Take a look on this site consumersearch.com you'll see the similar pricing like yours. e.g. (est. $90).

    Why do you want to do that though? Just make a link called, "See Price on Amazon" and BAM the visitor will be interested in viewing the price and they will get redirected to amazon.

    Its best to say something like under $70 dollars for a quick general quote, for exact prices you will need to pull from their API.

    Yeah, I meant within the article/review, in a conversational style. Like "for around $65, you can't find a better blue widget than this one".
