    Comparison

    "Customers ask for Nike products all the time. When we present Under Armour products to them for comparison purposes / for comparison / as a comparison, they show no interest."

    For me, only "for comparison purposes" works. How about you?

    Thanks!

    I agree that they are all ok. What doesn't work is using "them" twice in the original statement.

    I'd say that's the least good choice because there's a superfluous word in it.

    That was a careless mistake.

    Thanks for pointing it out!
