Price comparison and voucher code websites have changed little since their conception leaving the savvy consumer’s mission to find the best price just as long winded and unreliable as ever. Many consumers will leave a voucher or comparison site expecting to have received the best deal possible, but is that really true?
With price comparison sites, the consumer can browse and search through a wide range of products and select what appears to be the lowest price for the item they are searching for. With voucher code sites, the shopper can browse discount codes from their favourite stores or take a hopeful look through a range of categories such as laptops or 3D televisions, perhaps selecting the code with the biggest percentage discount. Unfortunately neither approach guarantees the best deal.
Many consumers end their search there. The dedicated shopper, still intent on finding the best deal, then spends considerable time checking price and discount code combinations across a number of voucher and comparison websites before they finally discover the best price.
Voucher Heaven has taken the first step in bringing retailer pricing and discount vouchers under one roof. With most of its thousands of voucher codes matched to each and every relevant product in retailers’ catalogues, shoppers can save a considerable amount of time looking for that elusive deal and be much more confident that they’ve found the best price possible.
Visitors to Voucher Heaven can search by product or browse any of the product categories with each item’s listing displaying both the original price and the price after the voucher has been applied at the checkout. Each category starts by showing the cheapest option first and can be refined by brand or price range.
Simon Jennings, chairman of VoucherHeaven.co.uk, said: “Voucher Comparison is the next step in the price comparison and voucher codes arena and we’re proud to lead the way, helping shoppers get the best deal around.”
“We’re constantly striving to help consumers find the best deal and to find it quickly. We’re already busy developing the next stage of Voucher Comparison.”
So, this Christmas, why not ‘Compare Vouchers & Prices in One Place?’ at Voucher Heaven.
Voucher Heaven provides discount vouchers for over 2,000 UK retailers. Uniquely, it matches products and voucher codes so that visitors can search by product and price rather than just by browsing by store or category. Voucher Heaven also price watches over 3,000,000 items keeping its visitors informed of the biggest price reductions as they happen.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2011
Building on his work with the Conrad Foundation and the Gay Straight Alliance Network (GSA Network) to make public schools better and safer, San Francisco interior designer Ian Stallings found new sources of inspiration at Global Green’s 7th Annual Gorgeous and Green Gala last week, and is sharing some of tips he learned at the event.
?Like everyone else, I tend to get caught up in the minutiae of my daily life and sometimes forget the importance of our environment,? said Stallings. ?I do the basic things, like composting, recycling and using public transportation as much as possible?but there are so many things I can do within my business to help the planet. Attending the Global Green event inspired me to recommit to those values.?
The event facilitated connections between Stallings and various builders and manufacturers who supply the materials that he and his contractors can use for projects. Stallings believes there are many ways to incorporate green products into his designs and still keep them glamorous, fun, comfortable?or any other ambiance desired.
Some of the tips the San Francisco interior decorator and designer learned from Global Green that he is applying to new designs include:

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
Pittsburgh Electricians, South Hills Electric Heating Cooling, restores power to 18 families in a Pittsburgh suburb just in time for Thanksgiving.
South Hills Electric Heating Cooling announced today that they have completed their electrical restoration of service to 18 families in the Emsworth area. ?We pride ourselves on being able to complete emergency electrical services to our clients.? said Pat Cray, owner of South Hills Electric Heating Cooling.
Mr. Cray added, ?Any time is a tough time to be without power, but when you add the holidays into the equation, it becomes mission critical to get the job done as fast as possible.? Power was lost when a faulty water heater released water and saturated the electrical meters installed in the utility room of an 18 unit apartment complex. Duquesne Light was forced to cut power to the apartment building when an unsafe situation arose damaging all the electrical components beyond repair.
According to current electrical codes, the electrical meters had to be relocated to an accessible location on the outside of the building and portions of the electrical service redesigned to accommodate these changes listed here:
?For any service wiring changes for which the Company has not specified a new meter location, the Customer shall comply with the following general guidelines:
(a) Residential meters located indoors shall be moved to outdoor locations as specified below and in Section 4.2.3(d).
(b) Meters other than residential may be required to be moved outdoors.
(c) New meter locations shall be chosen to eliminate house to house connections and service drops over roofs, awnings and
(d) Meters shall be readily accessible to Company representatives. The best location is on the side of the building at the front corner nearest to the Company’s service pole or underground service point.?
~ Duquesne Light Electrical Service Installation Rules
Grounding and connections had to be updated as well to comply with the National Electrical Code. New Electrical panels were installed for all the units in the building as they were damaged by the water as well.
When asked how South Hills Electric Heating Cooling was able to pull off such a large job so quickly, the owner stated, ?This is the nature of our business. We specialize in coordinating efforts to resume electrical services to our customers as fast as we can. This requires actionable plans to contact and inform the electrical service provider, the owner, our suppliers, our employees, electrical inspectors, and any other third parties of interest. Also South Hills Electric Heating Cooling would like to give special thanks to Bill Hertrich of The Hite Company and Schneider Electric for all their assistance in procuring the necessary electrical equipment. Some of it right off of the manufacturing floor. Without which the service installation would have taken weeks not days.?
?Codes and Regulations are in place for a very good reason; to protect homeowners and tenants from dangerous situations that can arise from dealing with electricity and electrical equipment failures.? ~ Mr. Cray
As a result the families were able to return to their residence and enjoy Thanksgiving as they should.

Goleta, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2008
Any home improvement project presents some challenges; a common one is the budget — specifically, balancing the remodeling budget without compromising the results. Information and good planning are key elements to make the most of your money, says Bargain Network Home, a home buying and listing service that helps members find the houses and condominiums they want at bargain prices.
Bargain Network advises consumers to measure the feasibility of home improvement projects before undertaking them. Being realistic about what can be done and how much money it will require are the first steps to take before buying any paint or making phone calls to contractors. Along with these two steps, Bargain Network offers some helpful tips on how to renovate the home without breaking the bank:
1. Plan everything. Set priorities, and decide what you need to do and how you plan on doing it. Ask yourself what’s critical and what can be added to your wish list. The budget and the structure of the house should be the main variables to consider when deciding the changes. If you need to hire a contractor, ask for at least three detailed estimates; study them to see what the differences are and how you can work out a better deal by combining some ideas from all three. Once you have decided what to do, stick to your plan. Alterations often entail additional charges.
2. Shop around. To save money, you have to know what things costs. Doing research is the only way to know it firsthand, so make trips to different home improvement stores, and don’t forget to explore online. Be on the lookout for materials that are on sale, such as tile or wood flooring, due to overstocking or other reasons.
3. Measure the scale of the improvements. Altering a roofline or moving load-bearing walls are big projects that require an even bigger budget. Determine whether major structural changes are absolutely necessary or if you can work within the existing exterior walls and roof. Reduce the cost of plumbing labor and materials on bathrooms and kitchens with layouts that allow them to share major vents, drains and supply pipes. Figure out the best way to cut costs on the little things, and consult interior design sites to find out about easy and inexpensive ways to change the look of the house (new paint, different lighting, etc.).
4. Get the right financing. Do the math to figure out the best option, so you don’t end up paying more money in interest down the road. Mortgage refinancing or home equity loans are valid –and usually inexpensive– ways to get the money for improvements, but both present different interest and tax implications that have to be considered. When doing the math, factor in your plan after remodeling. If your goal is to sell, stretch the value of your future dollars by choosing improvements that offer a strong return on your investment.
5. Do it yourself? Be realistic about what you can really do well and what you think you can do. Labor can account for half or more of a major project’s cost, so you can save money if you can actually do it yourself, but if it’s not going to be a job well done, the cost could be even larger. Remember that your time has a value too, so weigh all of these factors before making a final decision.
In addition to finding helpful ways to save money on home improvements, members visit Bargain.com to access great deals on homes. For the best price information, real estate property listings and reports, and help with applying for loans, think Bargain Network.

Los Angeles, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 19, 2011
1001BestWays.com, where people go to share their best ways of handling life’s biggest challenges, announces its annual Earth Day Guide to the Best Ways To Save The Planet, presented unedited from actual user submissions.
Ten Best Ways To Save The Planet
1. A Tiny Roof Garden
“It isn’t much, but I have about 10 square feet of flat roof space outside of my apartment. I decided to plant some “food” plants–tomatoes, peppers, tomatillos, cucumbers, lettuce and onions. It is such a success that I bought some mason jars and canned 10 quarts of tomatoes, 23 pints of dill pickles and was able to freeze a LOT of green and red peppers…helping my budget AND the environment by avoiding transportation of veggies. “
2. Be The Designated Recycler At Parties.
“I offer to take the recycling home with me when I attend parties at the homes of friends and family. I already am dropping off the recycling from my own household in the near future, so it doesn’t add much extra effort for me, and the number of bottles, cans, and paper from a large party really add up. “
3. Capture And Re-Use Cold Water.
“I wash my hair daily in our laundry tub and need to first run the water until it gets warm. To conserve water, I capture the running cold water into an empty gallon water jug until the water heats up. I reuse the saved water later in my toilet tank by pouring the water into the toilet tank immediately after flushing the toilet, to refill the tank with my saved or recycled water. I reuse about 20-30 gallons of water per month. “
4. No-Trash Kids’ Lunches.
“I pack my kids’ lunches for school so that they don’t have any trash to throw away. I use reusable plastic containers, real silverware, reusable drink containers and cloth napkins. I plan to cut each cloth napkin into 4 pieces (to make 4 napkins) because those things are ridiculously big for a little kid’s face! “
5. Buy Used Stuff.
“I shop for used items whenever possible. This helps avoid unnecessary manufacturing and wasteful packaging, and keeps items that aren’t worn out from entering the landfills. Oh, and it saves money, too! “
6. Change Your Light Bulbs.
“The most recent thing I did is change out every light bulb in the new apartment that I moved into. I bought 2 cases of energy efficient bulbs and replaced everything, from bathroom, to kitchen, to outdoors. My lamps already had them, so I was ok there. In my old place I noticed a small savings every month on the electric bill. In my new one, I hope to expect the same.
7. Teach Your Kids.
“My husband and I recycle as much as possible. It’s been fun watching our 4 year old want to put the “trash” in the recycle bin. I guess we are making a good impression! “
8. Composting Is Fun.
“To save the planet my family and I have a composting bin in our backyards that we use to recycle all of our organic wastes. We then use the compost to fertilize trees and plants that we plant around the city. Its a lot of fun, and it saves the world a bit! “
9. Compost Coffee Grounds.
“I am a barista, we have a large volume of coffee grinds being produced everyday, this is also the case at my office job. I got in touch with several people who compost and have started a system of distribution to dispose of organic garbage such as the coffee grinds in an environmentally friendly way. since the volume is large it is useful to have a group of people so that we can distribute them amoung us. “
10. Make It A Game.
“In our home we play a “game” where we see how many things we can get done during the day without using power sources. We try to limit the amount of electric power we consume and by doing this cut down on our electric bill, as well as reduce our electric imprint. “
Every hour, on the hour, 24 hours a day, 1001BestWays.com presents a new Best Way to do something important like raise children, save money, improve your relationship, advance your career, improve your health, and even grow plants.
Every 42 days, 1001BestWays.com collects all of the Best Ways and publishes them in book form at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and Kindle. Volume 2 is schedule for release in May 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars
100 would have been enough, but WOW 1001 best ways?? good going!, April 6, 2011
By Health Nut “in Shape”
I found 1001 Best Ways when I was looking for gardening advise but I really didn’t want a regular book because I have a lot of those. Some of it was pretty much what you’d expect about not overwatering, but I just loved the idea about using eggshells and bananas and coffee grounds as fertlizer because I’m trying to teach my kids to be more environmental.
So every morning now, after breakfast, we make a point of composting and that’s so much fun for them. It’s still pretty early in the growing season, but our plants do look better at least to me.
We also picked up some Earth DAy ideas in the Save The planet section that my son is going to use in his gradeschool project., so that ‘s a good thing.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book , written by real people, April 6, 2011
By Electro Nut
I read an article about 1001 Best Ways online a few months ago and just fell in love with the idea of it. If you haven’t been, it’s a website where readers submit their best ways of doing things. I’ve submitted 4 articles now and — I admit it — bought the book to see if any of them had made it! And, sure enough, one of mine is on page 64. But once I finished my little happy dance, I really started to read what the other 1000 people had submitted. And most of them were really good.
I really liked the chapter on cooking because it’s so easy to get set in your ways and do the same things every week, every month. I also liked the chapter on pets because I recently lost a dog that had been part of my family forever.
As I was reading it, I kept thinking “Oh, this would be perfect for Renee” and “This completely reminds me of Amanda” and “My mother needs to read this”. I know what they’re getting for their birthdays! It really is a little something for everyone and a lot for me.
It’s not perfect — some of the articles are pretty obvious, but it’s what real people write, complete with typos and bad grammar, so you have to cut them some slack. Can’t wait for the next one.

Highly recommended., April 18, 2011
So I was looking for Earth Day books to plan activities for my kids and a friend recommended 1001 Best Ways. And, sure enough, in the Best Ways to Save The Planet chapter, there are some really solid ideas. But I also really liked the Best Ways to Save Money and have been talking those over with my kids, too. And the Best Ways to Clean Chapter. It’s all advice based on someone’s actual life, so it’s pretty valid and since it’s someone else telling them and not me, I find that my kids are more likely to listen because God knows they never listen to a word I say! We read the Best Ways objectively and discuss them. “What do you think about X?” I’ll say and then they’ll come up with their own spin on it. It’s really a good conversation starter and gets them to tell me things like, “Well, in school we learned this” or “My friend Allyson said that” without me having to pry it out of them. Highly recommended.

I am completely hooked on it., April 18, 2011
By P. Sam “KnowItAll” (Da Bomb)
(REAL NAME) Amazon Verified Purchase
My Aunt bought me 1001 Best Ways when I was accepted into college. Admittedly, I started reading it last week to procrastinate on my homework, but I got completely hooked on it. There’s no beginning or end really, so I started on the relationship and romance sections which got me thinking about my bf who’s on the football team so I read the sports section. Then I read the education section and that led me to the job section and before you know it, I’m thinking I really need to get back to my homework because I don’t want to be the person stuck in a dead-end job because I didn’t focus on my homework because I was too obsessed with whether or not a dumb jock was sufficiently romantic on our last date. It’s all very real people doing real things and that’s why it really got to me. Thank you, Auntie, it really was the best present I got!

1001 Best Ways is a really interesting idea that combines a lot of current Internet trends into one neat and tidy package., April 6, 2011
By S. Rosen “Sweet Tooth”
This review is from: 1001 Best Ways, Volume 1 (Paperback)
1. It’s Crowd Sourced. See Wisdom of Crowds for a full explanation, but basically it’s the idea that a group of people acting independently can come up with better results than an individual working alone. There are a lot of great examples of this like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and simple guessing games.
2. It’s Social Media. If you follow the 1001 Best Ways Twitter feed, you can actually get the entire book, free, 1 tweet per hour. It’s also on Facebook and other social media sites and on 1001bestways.com.
The question then is: is it interesting to you and is it well-written? OK, that’s actually two questions. But if you’re interested in any of the following topics that 1001 Best Ways covers, then, yes, it is interesting:
01. Best Ways To Save Money
02. Best Ways To Raise Kids
03. Best Ways To Maintain Relationship
04. Best Ways To Travel
05. Best Ways To Save The Planet
06. Best Ways To Advance Your Career
07. Best Ways To Cook
08. Best Ways To Clean
09. Best Ways To Improve Your Health
10. Best Ways To Improve Your Education
11. Best Ways To Connect With The Divine
12. Best Ways To Accept Your Mortality
13. Best Ways To Celebrate The Holidays
14. Best Ways To Be Romantic
15. Best Ways To Be Creative
16. Best Ways To Be Beautiful
17. Best Ways To Raise Pets
18. Best Ways To Raise Plants
19. Best Ways To Be Happy
20. Best Ways To Cope With Family
21. Best Ways To Coach
22. Best Ways To Master Computers
23. Best Life Lessons
24. Best Ways To Have Fun
It’s a pretty comprehensive list as you can see. So, on to the issue of quality. When 1001 Best Ways is good, it’s very good but some of the articles are weak. This is to be expected, I suppose, since it’s crowd-sourced. You take the good with the bad and the end result is surprisingly compelling.
In addition, since 1001 Best Ways is curated but not really edited, all of the original typos, misspellings, poor grammar, capitalization errors, etc., are included. You feel like you’re reading the work of 1001 different people because the range of styles, voices, etc. is so wide.

This Book Sucked me in, Great Stuff, April 6, 2011
By Geeky Geek
My wife gave me 1001 Best Ways last week and kept nagging me to read it. So, in order to ensure domestic peace, I gave in.
I gotta admit that it sucked me in good.
It’s a collection of 1001 little articles that readers submited to a website about 24 different topics like relationships, money, kids, sports, cleaning, etc., etc., etc. So you read one and then another and before you know it you’ve finished a chapter and started another.
And it’s just people, you know, just telling you what matters. And their business is pretty much like yours or people you know. We’ve all got problems and we’ve all got ways of dealing with problems and when you string it all together its really compelling.
And the whole time I’m reading it, I’m like “I can do better than that” and “That’s not how you do that” and next thing you know I’m on the site giving them MY ways to do stuff.
Like I said, I got sucked in. And I promised my blushing bride, the love of my life, that if I liked it, I’d write a review. (If I didn’t, she had to wash my car.) So, here you have it. Buy the book. Read the book. Give the book.
