Squeeze.com Could Save You Time When Comparing Plan Pricing

As everyone knows, if you want the best deal on a product or service, you’ll likely want to shop around. That’s why it’s no wonder that, in recent years, there have been nearly as many ads for aggregate price comparison sites as there’ve been for the products themselves. Because of this, when I first came across the recently-launched site Squeeze, I was a bit skeptical. After all, comparing well-worn territories such as loans and auto insurance didn’t seem that groundbreaking to me. However, upon further inspection, I found a set of features on Squeeze that could save you a significant amount of time.

Unlike certain insurers that promise consumers comparison quotes or travel sites that compile rates from all of those other travel sites, Squeeze’s aggregation tools allow you to explore multiple types of services with only a few clicks. One of my favorite features on the site so far is their cordcutting section, which lets you compare various streaming services. Under each service, you can view plan tiers, pricing, compatible devices, and more. I also appreciate the calculator function at the top that will add up your prospective monthly bill in order to help you determine if cutting the cord is really a viable option for you. Sadly, one missing feature (that would admittedly be a bit difficult to implement) is a detailed guide to what content each streaming platform offers in their library. That said, there is a brief overview at the bottom along with some pros and cons for each service.

Another clever page is their mobile phone plan comparison tool. Here you can select which device you have your eye on, see what types of voice and data plans are available for it, and learn how much you’ll have to pay upfront in order to own said device. In addition to big players like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile being represented in these comparisons, you may also discover some other carrier options you weren’t aware of. In those cases, if you’re concerned that going with a smaller provider might mean sacrificing service, Squeeze also provides links to coverage maps that might be able to help you out.

While I’ve enjoyed exploring these two aspects of Squeeze in particular, I should note that I haven’t gotten too much further just yet. Despite that, I think it’s safe to at least recommend checking out Squeeze and seeing if this new service can help you save some time and potentially even some money. Personally I look forward to seeing how Squeeze evolves and what other verticals they add down the road.
