I would like to scrape prices and titles of products from a major retailer like walmart.com and/or Target.com and then save the information to an online database.

Then I would like to use the title to run a search on amazon.com and scrape the price of the first result (which usually is the same exact product), and also save the data it to an online database.

I would like to schedule the searches to run and/or have the option to run continuously and they need to run from behind a proxy.

Finally, I would like to compare the two prices on a password protected dynamic web page and be able to run a report that highlights the largest differences between the two prices, with click able links to each product page.

I don't need it to look good, I just need it to work. I understand there may be some ongoing costs for hosting, bandwidth or proxy service, and I would like to be able to have the assistance of the programmer to choose what we need to make this work.
