‘Daily offer sites are usually not cheaper’

Sep 6, 2021

September 5, 2021 – Daily offer sites are usually not cheaper than other online stores. That appears from research of the Consumers’ Association. More than half of the offers are just as expensive or even cheaper elsewhere. Researchers from the Consumers’ Association asked 1800 panel members about their experiences. They also compared the prices of 100 offers on 10 popular sites with the prices of other online stores. In 62 cases, the offer turned out not to be a bargain at all and the price was the same or even higher than at other online stores. 7 out of 10 sites covered more than half of their offers. For example, Koopjedeal offers a 10-pack of Oral B Cross Action brush heads for 41 euros, including shipping costs. But the same brush heads are for sale at Bol.com for 28 euros. And with 1 day promotion, a Walra hammam towel costs 25 euros. At Bol.com only 16. Even if they have no obvious complaints, users find the range of the sites disappointing and they sometimes find the web shops slow. The description of the products is also not always correct and there are complaints about the quality. Furthermore, the shipping costs are often disappointing. They can go up to 9.95 euros. In addition, some sites require consumers to pay that cost per offer separately, further reducing the advantage over other stores.
