An interesting comparison of internet shopping websites
« on: July 09, 2008, 07:26:54 PM »
Dealnews just published an interesting comparison of Pricegrabber, Shopping.com, and three other internet price comparison shopping sites.

You can read it at this link:

short but sweet -- definitely a useful list for people who don't know about these sites.

Interesting. I wonder who paid who (or threatened to sue) to have it removed?

i wonder if any of the earlier readers can recall what was so provocative to the extent that dealnews pulled the plug.

To my memory it wasn't even that interesting of an article. It listed four or five shopping websites, wrote two or three sentences about each one, then summarized by stating the top two that gave the best results.

I was actually disappointed when I read it that it didn't go into more detail.

SmarterDeals provides hardware best price comparison features exclusively for hi-tech products, like - computer hardware, software and electronics.  You can make best deal out of it.
I am very tempted to flag this post as spam, it clearly being a plug from someone involved with the site, being a 1-time poster, and not really disclosing the poster's relationship with the product. But at least it's not one of those deceptive "hey, does anyone know of something that does x?" posts.

Mr. SmarterDeals: a more acceptable way to do this is to be up-front about your relationship, and post your announcement in the forum area that is meant for that purpose: Announce Your Software/Service/Product.
