looking for a more powerful Amazon search tool

Is there a way to search Amazon by price and actually get results within that range? I recently found a pretty sweet deal on a nice nail polish when I needed a filler item and was looking through the offers on Amazon Filler Finder
, but I'd like to search for more items within a tight range like that. Unfortunately, when you tell Amazon to return, say, items under $5 it still returns results up to $8, and when you're looking for really cheap stuff-- like under $2-- it's even worse, returning pretty much the same results you got for the $5 search.

Is there any third-party Amazon search tool that would let me do this? Browser add-ons and the like would be fine. It seems like the fact that there are tools like the Filler Finder would mean that something like this would be possible to make, but I'm not finding anything. And no, sorting from least to most expensive doesn't help, since it plays pretty fast and loose with the idea of putting things in a particular order, even when you tell it not to display the most relevant results first.
I need to be able to separate Prime eligible and/or items with free shipping available, since otherwise it'll be entirely people charging a penny for items and then making up the entire cost in shipping.
