About Skinflint

The German language predecessor of Skinflint, Geizhals Preisvergleich, was conceived in 1996 as an independent price comparison and soon enjoyed enormous popularity. In June 2000, it incorporated as "Preisvergleich Internet Services AG" with funding by a VC investor (e-matrix Online Business Development AG). In 2009, the English language website Skinflint was launched, offering localized content and more than 250 merchants for the UK market from the start.
