Now that FLUBIT has ruined itself, any other price-beating sites?

As many of you will know, Flubit has ditched their price-beating business model in favour of a useless Amazon store clone with higher prices.

Gone are the days where you could submit an Amazon link to Flubit to beat.

Does anyone know of any other websites that offer a price-beating site where you submit an item link from Amazon for example and they will come back to you with a better price?

They will be out of business soon enough

There's a reason why they say "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

Bespoke offers was far better than Flubit back when it was around. Definitely got my best bargains there due to the quidco on top.

I would assume Flubit will try and reintroduce the feature that they were built on at some point in the future, but perhaps it just wasn't making them any money...

Flubit is run by amateurs...

1) First they used to match with multiple websites, currys/pcworld/ebuyer/amazon
2) Then they introduced a utterly "pointless" points system where you could ask for a demand quicker, but in reality you waited twice as long
3) They moved to a paying model where you had to pay a fee to access currys/pcworld/ebuyer etc. Only Amazon was available to free users
4) When they realised that only Flubits friends and family were the only ones joining their paid service, they've dropped it for an Amazon clone, which is useless and you end up paying more.
5) Customer service has now dropped to the level of generic cut and pasted robotic replies, maybe all the staff left.
6) Have you seen their website? It's designed by the same dropouts that designed the new HUKDs website skin

Price-matching was their bread and butter, now it's not even worth a flutter

Supposedly elite members received an dmail-i didnte-and they're going to add/improve the old functionality, but judging by twitter comments they've committed comoany suicide. Prices are way higher, function of site gone. They're dead. Sorry, flubit.

Been sat on the toilet playing Peggle. So who's this Lokal? Googling Lokal brings up "Prague ham with creamy whipped horseradish"
