After only a few minutes visiting our site, the consumer is in a good position to make an informed choice before making a purchase.

Whether you wish to purchase on or offline, Pricerunner.co.uk points you to the best deal.
Pricerunner.co.uk is radically changing the way people buy. It is now possible to gain an overview of the full range of products on offer from a broad range of retailers selling in the UK. Pricerunner.co.uk provides this service by offering independent price comparisons and detailed product information from online and traditional stores. In this way the consumer’s choice is greatly enhanced, with just a few clicks of a mouse!
We list both those retailers who pay for an Enhanced Listing (graphic logos, direct links and a retailer message) and other retailers from which we do not receive any remuneration. ‘Free’ retailers are listed where we believe they are reputable*, competitively priced, with a range of products and good delivery services, return policies and customer support. Our ambition is to list as many retailers, products and prices as possible, but we can never guarantee that all prices and products are listed on Pricerunner.co.uk, whether they be from ‘free’ or ‘paying’ retailers.
*Pricerunner do not make any claims as to the reputability or quality of the retailers we list, however we aim to list such retailers and will remove a retailer (paying or free) if we believe they are disreputable.
Kristofer Arwin, Martin Alexanderson and Magnus Wiberg together with Cell Ventures as financier started Pricerunner in July 1999. The Swedish site was launched in December 1999, with the UK following in September 2000. Pricerunner was aquired by ValueClick Inc. in August 2004.
