PrizeFly is a biweekly product comparison series published every other Monday. Each time, we review and compare key features of 2-4 products of the same category. Each feature is assigned a weighted percentage. At the end, the weighted average score is calculated for each product and the one that has the highest score is crowned the "prized flyer".
Ratings given in each category should be considered relative to the other products. If you do not agree with one of our ratings, please share your reasons why in the comments.
