Allow specification of a threshold to send price change e-mails

Love getting the price change mails, but not when the price of a $7.99 book changes by $0.03 to $7.96. I would love to specify a dollar amount or percentage for change that triggers the change e-mail (decreased prices most useful). For example, I could say 10% and for the above example I wouldn't receive an e-mail unless the new price was $7.19 or lower.

A complication arises if the price decreases $0.05 (or whatever) over multiple days. The site would need to know at what price I added the book at to alert me when the price eventually reaches my threshold. Alternately, I could specify the percentage or price just once when a book is added and when the book ultimately is below that threshold, alert me.

Several different ways to implement this. The goal would be to say "goodbye" to alerts when the price changes by just a few cents.

    I’ve implemented a change to address this.

    There’s now a minimum change of 1% needed before the alert is sent.

    It’s not user-configurable, that adds some extra complexity I’d like to avoid; but let’s see how this standard threshold works out.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
