Wednesday, April 1, 2015 is Gone - A Sad Day for Comparison Shoppers

Finding the best prices for a specific item online can be a bit of a challenge. If you do a simple Google search for the product the most popular sites pop up first and more affordable sellers are easily hidden. In the past I used's superior sorting feature to find the best prices but when I tried to use it today I learned that it is now going to be absorbed into Facebook's Advertising department. Oi vey! I am so irritated. 04/01/15

In the past similar sites like Google Shopping just haven't worked as well for me. When I'm looking for something that rarely goes on sale I usually look up the item's price on multiple search engines. 7 times out of 10 I am able to find a cheaper source for that item on theFind. Google shopping seems to leave out quite a few vendors. I've done searches in which Google Shopping finds about 30 vendors while theFind found over 100 vendors.

Unfortunately this is not an April Fool's joke because apparently the site went offline on 03/13/2015 according to their Twitter page. I hope that something comparable pops up soon. I am really going to miss this shopping tool!

***Happy Spring shopping***

  1. Just found this out today when I went to look for something - NO other site has a useful LOCAL search for brick and mortar stores that might carry what I seek. Most of the time, the local feature is the one that I come to use and no other site seems to do that at all well. Google has been useless for finding anything at all once they started becoming the mega everything, I can't even find WEB PAGES using that site anymore. FEELING VERY SURLY ABOUT THIS DEVELOPMENT, and I don't see how Facebook can even do anything but make that service worse for their own goals. Shame on the FIND for selling out. Sucks,.

  2. I am still very upset about the sellout too. I liked theFind's web design to be more appealing as well. It's rows of pictures with descriptions were much better than Google Shopping's rows of small pictures with lengthy descriptions. Google doesn't seem to be as accurate with product relevancy either. Shopzilla, Nextag and Pricegrabber seem to be flooded with big box stores and have fewer results. I'm definitely boycotting Facebook ads, at least until something better pops up. Not click throughs from me!
