    BeatThatQuote.com states that it was acquired by Google!

    I must say even though I'm starting to somewhat dislike Google I admire them as I'd love to personally take over various markets like they are trying to do.

    They bought them over a year ago and it appears they haven't done a thing with the site since.

    Beat that quote had a pretty shitty rep for being aggressive with brokers and insurers and for spamming customers beyond a reasonable level. Still can't imagine how a basic aggregator website was worth nearly 40 million and particularly to Google ?

    Well BeatThatQuote sucks because it hasn't beaten my quote at all!

    Confused.com usually returns the best results for me and I have to shop around for a lot of quotes. Also the easiest to modify a quote
