The giveaway is part of a ’12 days of Christmas’ social media campaign Getprice is launching starting from today.

Marketing director for Getprice, David Whiteman said that based on Getprice’s site search trends, this Christmas consumers were looking at spending more online because of the savings they would be able to make.

“Based on the top searches list, we are starting to see a trend toward purchasing big ticket items online because of the cost-savings and ability to easily identify the best price for an item.

“For example, the Toshiba Portege R700 PT311A-00J00Q Laptop we’re giving away can be purchased for up to $2799.95; yet after an online comparison price search can be found for $1731.00. That’s a huge saving of $1068.95!

“Similarly, with the Samsung LA26C450 26inch HC LCD TV comparison shopping online sees a big saving of $176.

“There are huge savings to be found online and we should continue to see these sorts of items sold online as consumers reap the benefits of choosing to shop this way.”

The ’12 days of Christmas’ social media campaign sees Getprice give away one of the 12 items each week day leading up to Christmas.

Consumers can enter in two ways:

On the social media campaign, Mr Whiteman said: “Our new twitter and facebook pages will see daily postings of the latest deals and bargains available on our site. By connecting with us through our social media channels, consumers will be able to quickly and easily access these specials. They will also give us the opportunity to increase interaction directly with our users.”
