5 Comparison Websites that WILL Save you Money

Ads by Google

Probably you’re already familiar with the idea of comparison shopping. These are quite useful websites where you can compare product prices from pretty much every online retailer. During the last 3-4 months I discovered a number of cool websites that successfully implemented the same concept to other areas. Check them out.

1- Compare Product Prices with PriceGrabber

I’ve tried many comparison shopping sites and can confirm that PriceGrabber is one of the best ones. Simply search for the product you want to buy and PriceGrabber will list all available retailers starting from the cheapest. If you’re not clear about what exactly you want to purchase, then you can browse products by categories and filter them further by specs, features and brand. Products can also be sorted by user ratings and reviews.

2- Compare Banks with FindaBetterBank

Looking for a new bank account? Wondering how your current bank account stands against account offerings from other banks in the area? Find A Better Bank is the one and only tool you need. It’s very thorough and can help you locate the best bank account for your needs in a matter of minutes.

So how it works?

Enter your zip code, indicate the features that are important to you and provide additional details to help them estimate yearly banking fees. Done. Now you have a detailed comparison of nearby banks, sorted from best to worst.

3- Compare Cell Phone Contracts with BillShrink

There are so many cell phone contracts out there that it’s almost impossible to find out whether you’re getting a good deal. BillShrink is a new service that can help you with this. This handy website first asks you about your usage preferences and requirements (i.e. average daily talk time, whether you need data plan, SMS usage etc.). Then it compares over 100 mobile plans and finds the best plan for your needs. I am quite surprised that we haven’t seen something like this earlier.

The whole procedure takes about 3-4 minutes. Read more …

4 -Compare your Rent with RentoMeter

Rentometer - Compare Rent Rates

RentoMeter is a web based rent comparison service. Here you can find out whether the amount you’re currently paying for your rent is a rip-off or a bargain deal. Rentomoeter compares the amount you pay to an average rate for the similar apartments in the neighborhood area. It will also give you a mapview of nearby apartments including their rates. Check out the RentoMeter in action here.

5- Compare Budget Airlines with SkyScanner

One of the few budget flight search engines that can actually find you the best ticket. I tested it both in Europe and Asia and can confrim that it actually WORKS! It’s also the only budget airline search tool I am aware of that works for inter-continental flights. SkyScanner only searches among budget airlines so you won’t see any pricey tickets here.

  • Skyscanner Flight Search

    Hi,

    Thanks for including Skyscanner in your article. Just to clarify one point though: Skyscanner shows both budget airlines (Ryanair, easyJet, Wizzair etc) AND traditional carriers (BA, Virgin, KLM etc) enabling you to compare flight prices across the board and always select the cheapest fare.

    One tip to remember is that these days, so called “low cost airlines” don’t always offer the cheapest flights; it’s not uncommon for the traditional carriers to be cheaper on certain routes, but with Skyscanner you can see all the options – which means users can make an informed choice.

    The “Skyscanner only show budget airlines” myth is one of a few misconceptions floating around about Skyscanner which we’ve clarified here: http://news.skyscanner.net/articles/2008/08/000500-skyscanner-myths-debunked-the-truth-behind-europes-favourite-flight-search-engine.html

    thanks

    The rentometer is great. However I live in Marin County and rent everywhere here is ridiculous as it is.

    Thanks for sharing Find a Better Bank. I’m checking it out now and looking forward to the results.
