The site also allows people to set preferences that focus on factors such as risk, deposit periods and rates. David Kerr, Managing Director of the site said: "We constantly scour the market for the best deals. Overall our research shows that Irish households could make gains of over €500 per year and it shouldn't take more than 15 minutes"
Consumers can also follow new deals added on Twitter and Facebook as the site grows
