Decide.com launches Decide Score ranking alongside price forcasting
We've covered Decide before--it's the shopping search engine that's focused on telling you when you should buy certain products, based on when they'll be cheapest. For example, if you are looking to buy a Panasonic Lumix ZS20 camera, Decide would tell you if now is a good time, or if you should wait a week or two, when the price is expected to drop. They even stand behind their predictions with a money-back guarantee.
One complaint that we had about the service was that, sure, it was easy to recommend products based on pricing trends, but that didn't mean that the product was a good one. Maybe someone has received a significant price drop simply because no one wanted it because it didn't perform as expected. It wouldn't be the first time. Today Decide is aiming to plug that hole with its new product recommendations service.
It's keeping things simple, too. Each product gets a Decide score between 1-100, which is an indicator of professional and user review sentiments. This includes sites like Best Buy, Amazon, Consumer Reports, CNet, and others. Decide takes all that data, puts it through its algorithm, and comes up with a score that it feels indicates just how good the product is.
So now you'll know whether the specific item that you've found a fantastic deal on is actually a good product or not. The service launched this morning, and covers categories like smartphones, tablets, televisions, cameras, refrigerators, barbeque grills, and a few more. Eventually they'll roll it out across all categories.
