This week’s Clever Site is a comparison site to check before buying anything – and I mean ANYTHING.


I mainly use Idealo for anything electronic or white goods, though it can give you the price for a huge variety of products – from Converse to weedkiller. You simply enter the product you’re after in the search box and it’ll give you a list of merchants and their prices. Though not exhaustive, it gives you a good start to see if the price you were going to pay is competitive.

What’s really good is that it gives you a price history so you can see if it’s ever cheaper. If it looks like it’s often available at a lower price, it’s worth waiting to get that discount. When I needed to replace our broken freezer I was able to check if the “sale” price I’d seen was a genuine deal – it was!

You can also set up a price alert. Last year when we were after a Kmix stand mixer I had a note to tell me if it went sub £250. It saved us £50!

There are plenty of other sites out there, with Google’s shopping tab worth checking out, but I think Idealo the best comparison site for everyday purchases. You can also download it as an app for iOS and Android devices to help you shop when out and about.
