IN JUST 15 minutes, cash strapped Irish consumers could identify and act on savings of over €500 per year, according to new personal finance and price comparison website bonkers.ie. According to the service, which was launched this week, Irish householders are missing out on millions of euro worth of savings every year by not taking advantage of the best deals available.
bonkers.ie is a free-to-consumer, impartial online comparison and switching service which helps people find the best deals across a range of areas from home utilities to personal finance products. The site offers a selection of simple tools and calculators to empower people to find the best deal to suit their circumstances. The service also enables people to switch providers at the click of a button.
Commenting, Simon Moynihan, communications director with bonkers.ie said "New deals emerge every day but the complication and time commitment needed to truly find the best offers puts people off taking any action. We take the pain out finding the best deals by providing thorough in-depth research and smart tools and calculators so people can save time, find the right product for them and make the switch, all in one visit. It's fast, it's free to use and makes finding the best deals hassle-free."
In addition to offering simple-to-use calculators which detail how much people could save, the site also takes account of individual inclinations and allows people to set preferences that focus on product differentiators such as risk, deposit periods and rates.
Bonkers.ie has launched with a range of comparison services for electricity, savings accounts, current accounts, credit cards and personal loans. New comparison services will be added in the coming months and new deals and tips are added daily to the site, to facebook and through twitter.
