Not Just for Nerds

Finding the best price for an item online just got a whole lot easier. Although there are others out there, this search engine for comparison shopping seems the most user-friendly. Unlike Yahoo and Google, Master Nerd only contains listings from online merchants, and it has a lot of useful features, like...

Once you find the product you're looking for you can get more details about the product and look at a range of merchants that carry the product. The links to the merchants are all on one page and you can easily see the price history of that particular item over the last six months, as well as the consumer rating for each merchant.

The ratings for the merchants are provided by storeratings.org, and they are based on feedback from satisfied and dissatisfied consumers. And the merchant ratings let you know who is the most secure, who has the fastest shipping and who has the best customer service...nice.

Further savings are also possible through coupons and rebates that are offered on the their website.

...this baby taps into over a million products...and there's a zip-code-based shipping calculator...so when you wanna compare apples to apples or costumes to costumes, don't be scared, visit masternerd.com /m

MasterNerd sounds interesting. I'll have to try that out next time I'm looking for a certain item. I also like Froogle for searching and comparing online prices.
