In 2015 it was voted as the most popular price tracking tool among Lifehacker readers.[6]

Due to a failure of three hard drives on the database server on January 26, 2019, the service was unavailable for several days. The service itself listed a breakdown of the costs needed to recover the service.[citation needed]

During the COVID-19 pandemic they agreed to Amazon's request to stop tracking prices in select regions.[7]

According to Cosmic Shovel Inc., the overall maintenance of camelcamelcamel amounts to about $11,000 per month.[8]
