New Pricespy price comparison integration.

Posted 30th Jun
Hi everyone

Just a heads up on a recent change to the site you may have noticed.

On our search results and product group pages, we have for a long time had a price comparison box, to show you what other prices are available on those sorts of items around the web. Obviously we think that deals, with the ability to be voted and commented on, are the best way to understand what the top offers really are - but scraping the internet for some extra context in terms of price is always helpful.

Previously we used the Idealo price comparison tool, but increasingly we found our editors preferred Pricespy when researching their own deals - on average it seems to have a great range and returns more results. So we wanted to use this one for all our members too, and have worked hard to get this new partnership in place and made live on the site.

It will appear as below, provided you have got 'Hide Price Comparison' unticked in the filters, see pic at bottom (thanks @fearona ) - please let us know any feedback you have on this change

That would be really really good if it would work on the apps!!
Nice. Idealo was worse than useless as it would show prices that weren't obtainable, I clicked many times on it and not once was the price offered the same. Clickbaiters.
