Finding Prices in an Offer File

You can use the offer files to find the prices and terms for a specific product. For example, you can find a list of Amazon EC2 instance prices.

The following procedures show how to find Amazon EC2 products by downloading an offer file as a CSV or JSON file and sorting the results.

To find an EC2 Reserved Instance using the CSV file

  1. Download the EC2 CSV file.

  2. Open the CSV file with your program of choice. For this example, we use Excel.

  3. Select all cells in the Excel spreadsheet.

  4. In the navigation bar of the spreadsheet, choose Data.

  5. In the Data bar, choose Sort.

  6. In the Sort by drop down list, choose column TermType, and then choose OK.

  7. Scroll down until you find the value reserved in the TermType column. Products that are marked reserved in the TermType column have reserved rate pricing.

To find an EC2 Reserved Instance using the JSON file

  1. Download the JSON file.

  2. Open the JSON file with your program of choice. For this example, we use Notepad++.
