For what products? You don't really give enough information for me to be of any help. The only thing I can tell you is the is no one stop comparison site, they all have different sources for getting their data.

I find , in general, Ebay and Amazon to be the best reference sources for online comparisons...

I type in the product into the Google search engine. Then, whatever company sells it usually shows up in the search. I then go to those sites to see the prices they offer.

I search for it on slickdeals.net to see how much it goes for when it's on sale.

@cengland0: I do the same general thing, but then click "shopping". It removes all of the general information links and leaves only the sites selling the item with the price. No need to go to the sites to check each one for the price.

I use InvisibleHand as a FireFox addon, which automatically checks the price of whatever I am currently looking at online against other sites.

I use Google and CamelCamelCamel. The latter is more of a check against self price checker, but it helps me know if I'm overpaying. It's saved me a little over $50 on a guitar pedal, for instance.

I'm sure there are other sites dedicated, but Google really is the best bet. Put in a product, maybe the word "buy" and within your first three results is Google Shopper, lists a ton of online retailers. It isn't always super up-to-date, but it's very useful

@morriea: Exactly what I do too but I forgot to include that part in my explanation. Thanks for including it for me.

@jsoko: Nice application but I keep switching between firefox, safari, and chrome. That plugin seems to only function as a firefox plugin.

Another vote here for Google Shopping. Visible prices from all over the web.

priceonomics.com is a pretty cool site for finding out what things are worth that don't have a set retail price, things like used electronics and such. It's not really very useful for retail shopping, but it can be helpful when buying or selling things on craigslist or ebay.

Like @thedogma, mostly I just use google and camelcamelcamel. I love CCC because you can also track price history on amazon and see if they've had it cheaper in the past.

I use this one a lot because it is well organized and it tends to search sites that I don't personally.
