***seeing is believing, believing is knowing***

The ultimate deals are available for free. All you need is an internet connection. What Price Runner does is compile the best available deals online for any particular item. The costings are variable to each item so for eg. Hotpoint Dishwasher is £165.00-£435.00. The variable costings are a very helpful guide to each online consumer’s requirements and wallet means. The immense number of UK online retaillers that are registered and logged onto this site engine is making this site the number 1 for online shopping deals. You may have already stubbled over it just by accident, this is a remarkable source of information. Price Runner is like a huge octopus online, the affiliation links are endless. Having all this information and dealing with the internet revolution in this unmeasureable way has made this site a ‘force and a source’ of excellence.

----The bargain hunters guide----

Online bargains hunters could do worse than check out Pricerunner - and avoid most others such as dealtime, the reason; well the site is not updated regulary– according to my online sources. The fact that this review is a guide only, it is subject to change and therefore the information provided is what I've found out to date.

** The big 6 'Shopbots' (shopping search engines)**

It’s no secret that shopping online can save you loads of cash. Compare the prices in the table below to your high street ‘bargains’. There are many cash reward schemes that go hand in hand so this way of shopping is a win,win, situation. Where do you get that in the High street?

In case you were wondering, Tesco’s is included on the list because most people are familiar with their prices, and so it serves as a benchmark of value as is regarded as the biggest retail magnet in the UK.

**The 6 online 'Shopbots' (shopping search engines) are**

1. Studio 2. Pricerunner.co.uk 3. Shopping.com 4. Kelkoo 5. Tesco 6. Amazon

----Being competitive----

If you've heard this week on the news, you would know that other brands such as Cadbury and Wrigleys are involved in a chewing gum market war. The MD, of Wrigley's has stated that a healthy competition in all market places of all businesses is healthy. He welcomed it with open arms. Having a running race is only exciting when more than one runner is competing. By having a vibrant competitive workforce envelopes a need for success, and for that competition needs to be introduced.

----Shop around and save money with Price Runner----

Price Runner for me has been the best that the online market can provide me. The deals are unbeatable and at the moment Price Runner is the number one search engine for deal sources. The problem that I've found is that the sites navigational simple method and the extreme easy access to all this information is mediocre addictive. While daily it has become a very useful tool of clasping feverishly at top deals; at night the mind plays tricks with you as sleeping becomes a tireless problem when floating prices and happy faces appear at random. Apart from that yeah please shop around and enjoy the experiences of Price Runner. Though keep it to a sellective time management protocol the same as your cash cows.

----Save Save Save----

What this means is shopping around for each item you want could save you a fair amount of cash. Remember that delivery charges will obviously be higher for ordering from many different stores, so any savings should be weighed against these additional costs.

---Shopping online doesn’t mean buying online----

The great thing about online shopping is you can literally scour the market from your armchair (or office chair, if you’re sneaky).

But many people are still hesitant to fill in their bank details online. Phishing is still a problem for many though I have not experienced any myself. Emails of mis-interpretions are always a problem… deals are an endless source… who do you go with? Is it a phishing link to those nasties waiting to hijack you and your banking identities? I do believe there is always a required logical mind that has to prevail while sifting through tonnes of emails giving you free holidays and vouchers.. and small cash rewards.. Choose wisely and the dark depths of internet crazed money mongers will not bed your banking securities. However, while there are a lot of goods out there that you really need to see in front of you before you make any decision.

This is where shopbots are particularly handy. Because they compare thousands of individual retailers, you can simply print out the best price and take it into the store. This is usually sufficient to get the shop to match the price of the item you want. This is perfect for those online bargain hunters who enjoy the retail shopping buzz.

----Some final pointers----

While I was perusing these sites all day (another hard day at the office) to get these prices, I was really struck at just how much stuff you can buy online these days.

The lists are endless, from obscure moped branded panels to a keyring of Raffles Hotel in Singapore; for it’s all available at the click of a button or a optical mouse click perferably. So it might be a good idea to make note of exactly what you want before logging on, or you could end up buying a lot more than you had originally intended; of course depending on your budget.

----The verdict----

Price Runner is a 'force to the source'; that is currently unsurpassed. The online traders benefit hugely from having such a powerful shopping search engine. Their affiliation links are impressive to you surfers who gauge the IP protocols to high traffic demands. It is only getting more apparent that marketing online in this manner will become a completely different online market place in a couple of years, as demands will automatically heighten to the vividly extreme.. until then.. enjoy comparing the prices on Price Runner.com.
