Comparison of Comparisons

A comparison of price comparison websites

The Comparison of Comparisons is a regular excercise which we here at PrudentPanda.co.uk go through on a regular basis to make sure we are competitive against the plethora of other price comparison websites available to you. It is simply a survey which compares PrudentPanda.co.uk against 4 of the most popular comparison engines but we are so proud of the results that we decided to publish them here for all to see.

We take a set of the most searched for products on our website, across all product categories, and search for these on our competitors websites comparing the price shown against that shown by PrudentPanda.co.uk. We also compare the number of retailers that website lists for the product to see which one gives the wider scope of buying options.

Our latest survey, conducted on 4th August 2011, has once again shown how unbeatable our website is as from the 10 products we searched for (selected at random) we were shown to be the cheapest, or at the very least equally as cheap, for every single one! We also found many errors in the listings on the other price comparison sites - these can be seen by clicking on the symbol where it is shown. This time round the reason we have come up with the cheapest prices time and time again is because we always include any relevant voucher codes within the price - this is not something our competitors are doing so whilst they claim to be adept at finding you the cheapest prices they are clearly not doing so by not making you aware of these vouchers! If a voucher is included in the products listed below it will be detailed if you click on the symbol.
