We all have a dream and while very few of us will achieve it, without it, what would we strive for. Astute Shopping is my
own personal dream, to develop a web site that will really help people find the best deals on the internet.
Astute Shopping is totally independent, unique and not just another a price
comparison web site or a voucher code web site but a shopping comparison website. Astute
Shopping is in fact the only website that directly links price comparisons to
promotional offers such as voucher codes and special offers. I do appreciate that voucher code web sites are currently all the rage but
if you were a smart shopper, you would quickly realise that not all online
offer voucher codes and those that do might not necessarily provide the
best deal. Astute Shopping features many online shops and retailers that do not provide
voucher codes and I can assure you they would not feature on Astute Shopping
unless I was totally satisfied they were offering a great deal.
Ian Smith founder of astuteshopping.com.
is totally unique in that it directly links price comparisons to
promotional offers thus helping smart shoppers find the best online deals. We achieve that by not only comparing prices on thousands of products, we also check to see if the shop has any
additional or secret discounts that might be available in the form of voucher codes,
special offers. We constantly review the websites of all the shops featured in our price comparisons and in addition we also
highlight links to any clearance sales etc that we think will be of interest to
a smart shopper. If you are clever and perceptive, shrewd and discerning, and regard yourself as a safe, careful, online shopper, Astute Shopping is likely to prove to be the sensible choice when it comes to searching the internet for online shops that provide safe secure shopping, and offer some of the best prices.
While Astute Shopping remains under development as we add extra features and improve the appearance of the site we were pleased when
whatsgoodontheweb.co.uk recently carried out an independent review. WhatsGoodOnTheWeb aim to be the number one source for independent website reviews for the UK consumer and provide website reviews, product reviews and links to free stuff on the Internet. The review of the Astute Shopping website can be found here:
retailers or online shops will you find on
Astute Shopping? The answer is simple, those
provide a safe secure shopping environment,
competitive prices and a high standard of
customer service. Unlike other price comparison web
sites you will not find us boasting that we
compare prices from every Tom, Dick and Harry
retailer that is prepared to pay us a fee to be
included in our price comparisons, far from it.
Retailers featured on Astute Shopping are there
by invitation only and we only invite the best.
We are not in a numbers game, we are in the
business of providing a quality price comparison
shopping service that will help our customers save time and money. Worth perhaps
also mentioning that we also endeavour to ensure that content of an adult nature
is not displayed on Astute Shopping nor do we feature retailers
who provide services such as gambling.
We use sophisticated algorithms, a variety of
unique search options and we list all voucher codes and special offers
that are notified to us by our featured retailers. That combination we believe
is unique to Astute Shopping and should in particular help the less
experienced internet shopper buy with
confidence bearing in mind we only feature quality UK online shops, retailers
and international stores that have an established reputation and enjoy the
confidence of the buying public.
We will not just save online shoppers
time and money, we are constantly on the
look-out for money saving ideas and advice. We also provide online shopping advice and when appropriate
shopping tips to help shoppers find what they are looking for.
