Compare Gas, Cell Phone and Credit Card Prices

OK, this is awesome. (Thanks JC and Susan.)

This site helps you to make your way through the complexities of the fine print of cell phone plans, gas prices and credit card deals.

I was most interested in finding the best gas prices. I put in my home address (I didn't give the exact address) and my work address (again, I wasn't specific) and type of car I drive and in seconds I got a list of the gas stations with the best prices. Turns out that if I would go a couple of blocks out of my way, I could save about 25 cents on a gallon of gas! THAT'S a bargain.

Plus, the read out tells you if it is one of those funky gas stations that doesn't take credit cards. I hate those. They post the lowest price and then charge you extra to take your debit card. Not OK!

This site was started when the founder's wife tried to compare cell phone programs. I KNOW how impossible that is. It is just (intentionally) TOO confusing to figure out.

My only concern about this site is that it asks for information that I don't normally give out - so I used made up stuff. You can decide how you want to handle it.

I think it is a useful tool. Let me know what you think.
