Calling all Amazon-lovers – The Newest Tool for Online Shoppers

By  |  0 Comments

Those obsessed with Amazon.com need to hear this: a new website FiveStar has created a way to search for the best products by price. You can search for anything and it will be organized by $10 and up, $20 and up, $30 and up – you get the picture. According to TechCrunch, FiveStar sorts first by relevance, followed by popularity, star rating, and then price.

Even better – the website was created by a rising sophomore at Louisiana Tech University named Matt Condon. Smart kid, huh? Condon wanted to start the site to solve his own issues that he had finding what he wanted. What a great way to fix your problem – create a product that is now being talking about on multiple websites.

Sarah Perez of Tech Crunch quotes Condon, “I was spending up to 30 minutes comparing items that I have no personal experience with. The original use case was for finding the best toaster on Amazon below $20; I know nothing about what to look for in a toaster, and I just wanted the best value for my money, so I figured I could write a simple script that would find the objectively best toaster.” On the site you can find everything from home & garden to appliances, and more. FiveStar is relatively new to the tech world and still has a few issues it needs to sort out, but with time it will become a major site for those compulsively using Amazon.com.
