CHOICE teams up with Getprice comparison shopping site
From smart phone applications to everyday appliances, more than a thousand products are road tested by CHOICE every year.
Now CHOICE'S members and visitors will be able to purchase those products online armed with the best prices from the most suitable retailers.
The consumer group has announced it is teaming up with leading comparison shopping site Getprice in a partnership that will provide price information about a range of products with an option to purchase.
"This partnership will provide members and visitors with a channel to find the best value for products that CHOICE has tested and recommended from Getprice's database of over two million products from some one thousand retailers," says CHOICE's commercial director George Perry.
"By going to the CHOICE website, you'll be able to read the test reviews and select a product. By clicking on 'Price and Buy', a price comparison page will display the product and prices supplied by retailers – both online and in physical stores – as well as information detailing their warranty, service and delivery terms."
The CHOICE site will also give information about shopping tips on what to look out for before making an online purchase.
"This is an added benefit for CHOICE members and visitors – a one-stop-shop where you can read the latest product reviews, find the best price for those products and then make a purchase if you wish," says Perry.
CEO of Getprice Chris Hitchen says CHOICE readers can make their online purchasing decisions knowing they have the best available information.
"By partnering with CHOICE, a powerful platform is created where consumers can access credible, independent product reviews from CHOICE alongside the most comprehensive and up-to-date pricing information powered by Getprice.
"CHOICE is Australia's leading consumer advocacy group and we are looking forward to developing this valuable relationship to the benefit of consumers and retailers alike," says Hitchen.
The shopping comparison service begins this week with CHOICE's latest review of refrigerators. Just go to www.choice.com.au/fridges.
