    Not sure how megashopbot can be updated but using it isn't the way to get the best deals. True it picks out the lowest list price, but it doesn't take into account discount codes or cashback site rates. One item it found 0.5% cheaper but taking into account discount vouchers and cashback sites I got it 20% cheaper from a site that was 20th in the listings.`

    Like many others here, I'm disappointed with this - today I found what I was looking at cheaper myself. Previously I've only ever seen "Product not found".

    Bought a DVD from Tesco at the weekend. MSB doesn't list Tesco as selling it, but offers the "cheapest" price of 30% more than I paid for it I've checked the tesco website which still lists it at the price I paid. I won't be relying on it.

    The MegaShopBot really needs updating - getting rid of some of the sites, maybe adding replacements and changing the ones selected.

    E.g. Foundem is listed, but if you search for anything it barely compares any shops, and if you go direct to their site they say they don't compare DVDs, books or CDs any more!

    BookBrain only seems to check Amazon and Blackwell, so not much use!

    Google says it can't display anything.

    Etc, etc.

    It looks like it's very neglected, which is a shame as it could be quite a good idea.

    Black Friday
    Hi, would the megashopbot pick up the Black Friday deals to compare?

    Why are A Great Read's cheap books missing from the MegaShopbot?
    I think a lot of Money Savers are missing out because doesn't feature on any of the book comparison sites? Its books are often cheaper than Amazon and so should come up on the MegaShopbot.

    Shopbot Not Working
    The Shopbot isn't working.

    I am unable to enter anything into the search field.

    Please can you fix it - it's so useful!
