Online Comparison Shopping Review

Monday, April 4, 2011

I am a big fan of online shopping, especially when I am looking for something specific or unique.  As a mother of two small children, shopping in stores can really be a hassle.  I recently encountered and decided to test it out with a few searches. The nice thing about a site like this is that it pulls the item you are looking for from multiple retailers and lets you compare them all on one screen.  A thumbnail of the item, description, location and price are all in a tidy format for easy comparison without having to jump from site to site.

I did several searches at, looking for several different products.  I searched for seventeen bedding (very cute, funky stuff inspired by Seventeen Magazine) and it really didn't provide the results I was looking for, but did offer links to other sites featuring the brand.  I also looked for dressing tables with mirror with slightly better results.  (Found a really cute pink one for little girls, but it was a bit pricey for a 3 year old!)  Next I tried for a moon chair and got some decent results.  I had better luck searching for a canvas book display and quad stroller, which I'm hoping to purchase within the next month.  These two items really supplied more results for a true price comparison.

Overall, the site had a clean and tidy appearance and fair results.  I typically search for an item using a search engine and then hop from site to site, and this can be time consuming.  I haven't really used many comparison sites and I'd love to get some feed back as to what sites you use to do your comparison shopping.  Have you tried  How did you like it?
