NZ Startup Ventures into The Financial Comparison Market

13th OCTOBER 2016

New Zealand website is expanding its service to ensure more of us are getting the best deal when it comes to finding a credit card.

glimp currently offers the comparison of broadband and power and will now will delve into comparing financial products starting first with credit cards.

“Last month we added power comparison to our service and it has already helped 100’s of people save money on their energy bills” says Speight. “As we grow we are looking for products that we can compare to make peoples lives a little bit easier”.

“It’s important that as we grow we add as much value to the users experience as possible,” adds Tyur’kov. “This revolves around adding new comparison products, offering helpful information so users can make informed decisions and to constantly improve the usability of our website to ensure we can help as many people as possible.”

Credit card debt stands at $6.1 bn in New Zealand and Speight sees an opportunity to save people money on their credit card balance.

“There is money to be saved if you shop around for a better deal,” he says. “Using our service you will find the best card on the market that suits your needs in minutes.”

With glimp, users answer a handful of carefully chosen questions in order to offer credit cards that best suit their needs. A full breakdown of each product is provided to ensure they are compared by the same standards. A switch to a better-suited credit card is just a few clicks away.

“There are many offerings out there and there is not one tool online that does what ours does,” Tyur’kov says.

“If you want the lowest interest rate or a card that gives you benefits like cash back or airpoints we make it incredibly easy to compare them and you can apply for a credit card in minutes”

The service is completely free for users wanting to compare broadband, power prices and now credit cards.
