Canstar Blue is one of Australia’s best-known and respected comparison websites. For the past 10 years, we’ve been helping Aussies make better-informed decisions on purchasing over 200 different goods and services. We all like to ask our friends and family about a product or brand before buying, and with Canstar Blue, it’s like asking thousands of people for their opinions before you get out your credit card.
We regularly ask average Australians how they rate their experience with more than 1,000 service providers and brands as part of our satisfaction ratings on everything from grocery items to home appliances and even new cars. We commission respected professional market research companies, Qualtrics, Colmar Brunton and Iview (owned by Ipsos), to ask consumers about their experiences with purchased products or services. More than 67,000 Australians complete our surveys every year, rating their satisfaction level with their brand or product of choice on a sliding scale (1 to 10).
We don’t just survey subscribers, and we don’t survey volunteers – we survey average Australians, with our professional research being representative of the Australian population. It’s also a point of pride that we make sure anyone surveyed has used their product or service over a substantial period of time, so you know that each of our ratings is more than just a first impression.
After some data crunching, we determine a winner and release these reviews here on canstarblue.com.au for free, because we know that shoppers like yourself value honest opinions from other consumers.
In addition to our customer satisfaction ratings, we also produce our own expert rankings based on specific methodologies and maintain price comparison tables for the latest phone, internet and energy plans, helping you find the best deal.
