Price Watch is a website that provides thousands of on sale or promotional priced products to shop for. They’re website shows prices for similar products side by side, allowing the consumer to see the best deals available. This is a place where a shopper can view a large amount of products in one place, but the site itself does not sell anything. All the products shown are being sold by a separate seller and by clicking on an item the site takes you to the seller’s website to then purchase the item. Price Watch has been making comparison shopping simple for 20 years.
- Comparison shopping
We found the link to all the deals on one page very useful. It's easy to find this link somewhere on every page visited on the site and it shows the most discounted items right at the top and all of the best deals in one place. We also think there are a large number of categories to shop from, giving consumers a large variety. Some of their categories include:
- Computers and parts
- women's clothing
- women's shoes
- intimate apparel
- men's clothing
- men's shoes
- watches, kids clothing, kids shoes, baby, toys, bags/belts/more, bed/bath, kitchen/dining, home décor, pet supplies, musical instruments, luggage, sporting goods
Price Watch is a site that only focuses on giving comparative shopping rates and its side by side view of prices makes it easy to see the best deal. When a category and certain item are selected, before pictures and descriptions of products appear, there is a list of all the available products and prices. This allows for easy scanning to see the best price. From there specific options can be chosen and more information about the product is available. They also provide reviews, or places to write reviews of the sellers of these products. This will help buyers to see if the product they are interested in comes from a reliable seller.
- Limited information
- Contacting the company
Price Watch can be out of date with a lot of their products. Some products, when selected, may take you to their seller's site that said it was no longer available. Some of the products may not take you anywhere to purchase. While some of the products have valid sellers and links, many do not. This can make shopping tedious on the site. When a buyer is looking for something they must take the extra time seeing if the product they are interested in is still a valid option. This is not ideal for a positive shopping experience. There are also no reviews available for specific products. This may leave the consumer with questions about how others have viewed the product they are interested in.
The lack of information about the site itself is another negative. Less information could make a shopper hesitant about the sites safety and reliability.
There is only one way to contact the company with any problems. On the website there is a link to their email where any issues with the website can be discussed. There is no other way to get in touch with the company for any questions or problems.
The Bottom Line
Price Watch does offer a quick way to scan products prices and see the best deals fast. They have a great link to the most on sale items and they have a large variety of products to choose from. However, the reliability of the site is low. Many of the products being sold are no longer offering the deals advertised. Price Watch may be able to help a shopper find an item with their large variety, but it may take the shopper a while to find a legitimate product on the site and any problems may be hard to get resolved with their limited information.
