Amazon will often list an item's price as a range. As an example, I just searched for "tshirt" and the first item was a Russell Athletic shirt (ASIN is B0007IBYO6), with a price range of $4.99 - $10.00 shown in the search results. When I click on the item, the price is then listed as $5.81 - $10.00. screenshot of example item

That difference by itself feels like a bait and switch, especially as the difference is sometimes much greater. I understand that certain colors or sizes will have lower prices than others. What I can't find is the feature/option/magic search syntax that lists all the color/size combinations and what their price is. It seems ridiculous to to have to click on all 324 combinations (9 sizes, 32 colors) to see which ones are cheaper. Worse yet, on items with less combinations, I have tried all combinations, and still could not find the lower price!

So, how do I restrict my Amazon searches to only show prices that actually exist? Or at the very least how do I see all prices for color/size/whatever option combinations at once?

Why do you have to check all the sizes? It presumably doesn't matter to you what the price is for t-shirts that aren't your size (or aren't the size of the person you're buying for). No one chooses to buy an XS t-shirt instead of an XXL because it's cheaper. –  Mike Scott May 24 at 9:02

There doesn't seem to be a way to do it other than maybe some fancy browser extension to iterate through all options.

I'm unclear why they chose to change the price range to "$5.81 - $10.00" after the original listing of "$4.99 - $10.00"

In any event the $4.99 price is there,
