Jan 14, 2019

Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis will use comparison websites this year to compare the options and save money. How can comparison shopping help you?

Although price comparison websites are relatively new, they are quickly being adopted by New Zealanders as they realise the benefits of comparison shopping. Price comparison websites can easily help consumers compare the options available to help them choose the best option and save money.

NZ Compare websites can help you compare broadband providers, power providers, travel and financial services to help you make more informed decisions. NZ Compare are becoming a growing phenomenon in NZ as Kiwis realise the benefits of price comparison sites. Over 900,000 kiwis used NZ Compare websites to compare services and products in 2018. 


It is very simple  - rather than visiting or contacting each individual provider, buyers can easily compare the options side by side in one place before making their purchase decisions. 

As kiwis adopt online shopping in larger numbers, the popularity of NZ Compare sites are increasing phenomenally. This greatly increases our ability to negotiate exclusive deals and savings on behalf of our customers. Our services are completely free to use, and there is no obligation to switch service providers. We earn a small commission from the service provider if you decide to switch to a new provider.

How do price comparison websites work?

If you’ve never used a price comparison site before, you may be thinking what’s the catch? We work with service providers across New Zealand to collect together pricing and information about their services and plans. This allows you to easily compare all the options together in one place, to choose the plan that works best for you. Saving you the time and hassle of contacting each provider individually to choose a new plan. 

Whether you are looking for a new broadband provider, power provider, financial services or planning a holiday, we can help you get a great deal. 

We also work with providers to negotiate exclusive deals and offers available only to NZ Compare customers, allowing you to save even more!

1. Comparison sites save you money

The main reason people use price comparison websites is that they allow you to find the best deal by checking hundreds of quotes from different providers. There may be a smaller or lesser-known company that offer the service you wish to buy at a much lower price. 

If you are comparing services like broadband plans, you can easily compare different features side by side, allowing you to save money paying for a service plan you don’t really need. This can, of course, save you lots of money when you purchase an item. 

We also negotiate exclusive deals and offers for our customers, so you can save even more!

2. Comparison sites save you time

Finding the best priced option can be very time consuming. Visiting each provider website, phoning customer support with questions, and trying to find the right information to compare like with like can be incredibly time consuming.  Price comparison websites gather all the information together in one place – so you can easily compare the options in one place. You can also view hundreds of customer reviews from other NZ Compare customers to help you make better shopping decisions.

3. Comparison sites offer you choices

Another great benefit of price comparison websites if that you can access hundreds of different providers in one place. In the changing New Zealand market, there may be a newer or lesser known provider offering a great deal or service. Comparison sites have larger and smaller providers together in one place, allowing you to make an informed decision.
