Ugenie – finding bundles
Posted by rexdixon on November 28, 2006
Ugenie, is a shopping site for those that are looking for the best prices on “bundles”. What is a bundle? Let’s say you were trying to find the best price on a “Sopranos” box set DVD’s. You can search for them by simply putting “sopranos” in the search, and when you get your first results, that is where Ugenie becomes your genie out of the bottle. Now once you find the box set you want, this is where Ugenie goes to work for you. Once that result comes back, you can also state “new” in case you don’t want used items as shown in the article.
In my search example, it took about the same amount of time as the article above. In fact it was actually quicker then typing the above paragraph. I found season 1-5 that retails for like $265 – $304, and with a click of the button – found Amazon had them from $199 – 202. A feature NOT shown in the article above is now I can narrow my search to zip code. You can also specify shipping option, which brought a new merchant to the top of the list as I specified “next day”, and the price is still only $299 – $302 but the merchant is now DVD Planet.
This may be a useful new twist on shopping search. You can actually play around on this site for a long time and tweak your search, but Technically Speaking I have to get a move on!
