We know the prices of all products stocked online at the UK's supermarkets, both current and historical. You can find out how good, or bad, a promotional deal is. You can use the search bar to find the prices of any product stocked online at the supermarkets we cover. The power of the site comes into its own when you set up your own shopping list. There is a basic demonstration video here We can show you where to get the best prices for all the items on your list and show you how one supermarket compares to another.
