I hope this website can inform people shopping on a strict budget where and what to buy. Most supermarkets do not allow you to sort by 'price per unit' because the cheapest items make them the least profit. The whole point of this website is to sort by unit and to fairly compare retailers side-by-side.
Every day at 3 am, a script explores the supermarkets' websites looking for products to buy, making a best attempt at deciphering weights/volumes/etc and multibuy promotions. The results are stored so that you can query them quickly.
It was made by a software engineer with an obsession for saving money.
I want this website to work on everyone's devices, as fast as possible. Not everyone can afford the latest iPhone, with unlimited data.
Please do your best to skip over these. Supermarkets sometimes mislabel things and I am trying my best to work out what they really mean. It will improve!
It doesn't make money, but running costs are low so it doesn't matter.
No, but I was compelled to make this website following MySupermarket's decision to shut down.
That is disappointing, because this will disadvantage your most vulnerable customers who once relied on MySupermarket and now try to make do with this. Contact me on Twitter if you must :(
If you like trains, pretty maps and split ticketing, try faremap. It works best if you have a mouse.
