SmartPengguna - a website to compare product prices in Supermarket Stores in KL, Selangor

Heard from Malaysia news today, there is this website called SmartPengguna.

I found this website useful.

This website is useful to compare prices of products sold in Supermarket Stores (Carrefour, Giant, Jusco, Mydin, TESCO) in Wilayah Persekutuan KL (Federal Territory) and Selangor. Carrefour, Giant, Jusco, Mydin, TESCO are the main Supermarket Stores in Malaysia.

We can select the Supermarket Stores near to our home and select the products to be compared (currently there are 8 categories available). Note the date/time the information is updated.
We can also get Ministry news and user generated articles from the "News, Articles, Feedback, Q&A" portion.

This type of website is useful to reduce information cost/information asymmetry. Consumer can compare the prices first before taking a trip to the Supermarket Stores. But the pre-requisite is the information has to be accurate and updated frequently. The cost of getting information to this website should not be too high, otherwise this website will not be sustainable.

If you like the concept of SmartPengguna as a way to save and survive in recession, check out my other posts on recession survival and fraud prevention too.
