DealTime.com Adds New Shopping Categories, Buying Groups

Independent online comparison shopping service DealTime.com added new shopping categories including Flowers & Gifts, Health & Beauty, Jewelry, Kids & Toys and Office.

The company said it will be adding Pets and Hardware by the end of the month.

The company also signed agreements with Accompany and Zwirl so that DealTime.com users can search buying group sites in addition to online retailers, classifieds, person-to-person auctions and large auction sites.

DealTime.com users can monitor new deals and be updated on their desktops, pagers, e-mail or even cellular phones using the patent-pending DealTime Notifier.

"This pre-holiday expansion delivers on our mission to create a service that truly provides the e-convenience long promised by the Internet," said Dan Ciporin, CEO of DealTime.com.

DealTime.com merchant and product information includes access to BizRate's Merchant Ratings, and soon will include recommendations on brands and products from Active Research's decision-support technology.
