MANTRA (Reuters) – One of the best ways to save money on appliances is to compare them, and there are plenty of tools to do just that.
The latest example of a tool that offers a simple, efficient way to compare home appliances is the Mantra Shopping Network, a marketplace that lets people buy, sell and trade them.
The Mantra service is the brainchild of Matt Sledge, an entrepreneur who has a background in real estate, finance and insurance.
“I saw the need for a way to have a single place for all the different home appliances,” said Sledge.
Sledge’s service lets consumers compare and shop for appliances on the Mantras shopping site.
For each appliance, a “value” is calculated by taking the average price and adding in the cost of the manufacturer, warranty, warranty expiry and the cost to replace the appliance.
Sale prices are usually the most relevant information, but the Mantrashoppers also allow sellers to list their prices and compare them.
If the product is cheaper, it is more likely to be listed on the site.
Mantra’s service is based on a comparison shopping site called ShopSavvy, which allows shoppers to compare the prices of different appliances from different manufacturers and vendors.
For example, a new, $1,000 water heater might cost $800 to replace.
A $1.50, 4-way air conditioner might cost less than $1 to replace and has a warranty expiring in three years.
The Mantrashes also offer a variety of other useful data.
The most recent data, from March 2017, showed that the average value of new appliances was $1125 and the average cost of an older, $1135.
But the price difference between a $1 water heater and a $2.5 air condition was a whopping $1122.
The data also showed that a 4-wader is more expensive to repair than a 2-waders, and that a $9,000 thermostat is more durable than a $3,000 one.
The site also showed how many people owned a certain appliance in each category.
Sailors and other consumers have the option of buying appliances online, but many are looking for more efficient ways to shop.
“There are a lot of consumers who are buying more for their home than they are saving,” Sledge said.
“So we want to make it easier for people to do that.”
Mantrashopping can be a bit overwhelming.
Customers are asked to type in information about the appliance they want to compare, the manufacturer they want, the warranty expirience and the repair costs.
Some of the questions can be overwhelming.
For example, for a 1-liter water heater, consumers need to type the brand name and model number, the price, the year of warranty, the cost for replacement, the expiry date and the expirence date.
Some appliances are priced for each category of the product and require different answers.
In some cases, Mantrashedoppers are not able to answer the questions in a timely manner.
For instance, if the manufacturer is a one-off, it might be too costly to repair the appliance and the warranty has expired.
Other questions may require more detailed information about an appliance or the company, which may take up a lot more time.
For a new home, the Mantramatica, the name of a new appliance, might be “a very inexpensive appliance that does not have a warranty,” said Matt Krieger, chief marketing officer for Mantra.
“It’s one that’s very inexpensive, and we’re very interested in it.”
Mantle is one of several companies that have offered Mantrashing for years, but it was only in recent years that it started to gain traction.
In 2017, the website Mantra was acquired by a New York company called Mantle, which sells appliances online.
Mantle, along with other Mantrasing companies, have raised millions of dollars for a wide variety of projects, including building new homes for homeless people and offering free air conditioners to students.
