Price comparison sites are actually pretty rare in the Canadian online
marketplace, even though they are so popular just south of the border.
Here is a recent Maclean's article about this:
In this article, they 'tested' out four sites, including:
Yahoo! Canada Shopping
Sympatico MSN Shopping
In addition to these, I would add PriceNetwork.ca
For what you are looking for, specifically sites that can help you
find the best price for computer and consumer electronics products, I
would recommend that you first check out PriceNetwork.ca. All of the
'deals' recorded in their product database have been validated by
members of this community forum, and you can check up on the
reputation of the vendors using the message forums that are part of
I would personally place Yahoo! Canada Shopping and Sympatico MSN
Shopping as a tie for second; while the approaches are different
between the two, you'll find that the results tend to be similar.
Next, I would suggest you check out RedFlagDeals.com. I disagree with
the way that the Maclean's article tried to use RedFlagDeals.com. As
you'll see when you visit the site, it is not designed to be a price
comparison service. Instead, it is a good tool to find out about the
latest hot deal or discount to come along. As well, the relatively
large user community is a fountain of knowledge should you choose to
join the message forums.
In last place for now, I would place Pricegrabber Canada. The reason
for this is that the vast majority of the 'deals' that it returns for
a search are actually US vendors, with the prices converted into
Canadian dollars. I'm sure that over time, they will increase the
Canadian content of their database; for now, I find it lacking.
Hope this helps!
