Today heralds the arrival of a brand new price comparison web site aimed at the home appliance and electrical goods market.
Electrical Appliances UK.com (http://www.electricalappliancesuk.com) combines both a price comparison engine along with impartial user reviews and some innovative features to make this a ‘must use’ web site for anyone in the market for a new electrical or electronic purchase.
“We have built Electrical Appliances UK upon the technology used in one of our existing price comparison sites for Mountain Bikes,” said Howard Jason of the web site. “However, we have both enhanced the existing platform and added a considerable number of new features and tools to further enhance the user experience.”
The web site produces the best results when searching for known model numbers of electrical items, kitchen appliances etc. – the results pulled in are then extremely accurate. Web site visitors are first confronted by several images and a description of their chosen item. On scrolling down the page, the price comparison information, user reviews, a more detailed description, technical specifications (where available), price history charts and more are available for them to peruse.
The electrical price comparison engine compares prices from a large number of retailers and the price information includes any postage charges, stock information and discounts when available.
“We are not a voucher code site but we do include any voucher codes or discount codes when applicable to the chosen electrical item. This ensures that there is no need for our site users to go off and trawl the web for any further discounts to our displayed prices – all the information is right there on the page,” said Howard.
The Price History displays a graph of the historical price of the item, giving an idea of where the price may be heading. For instance, if that graph is trending upwards, it might indicate it’s better to buy the item sooner rather than later! However, if a bargain hunter has a particular price in mind that they are prepared to pay, there is an option to set a ‘price alert’ whereby they will be sent an email as soon as the item’s price dips below a set trigger price. One of the best things about this feature is that it will take future discount codes in to account meaning if a retailer suddenly adds a 10% discount for a day or two and this then takes the price down below the target price, a notification message is sent meaning there's no need to check online for discount codes every day.
Other useful features include the option to set ‘stock alerts’ where a notification email is sent once an out-of-stock item is available again, the ability to order products by amount or percentage of price reductions, enabling price comparers to bag the biggest bargains, and checking eBay prices and availability of the wanted item – all on the same page.
All in all the site seems very useful, and it is certainly worth looking at when buying electrical items or just when looking for impartial product or retailer reviews and ratings. In these belt-tightening times, any money saving help is more than welcome.
