Daily Deals – Social Buying Sites
In the last several years, countless websites have sprung up that offer special online deals, with fantastic time-limited discount offers in select cities. Sometimes these deals are for everyone, regardless of where you live. This new trend of time-limited deals and group buying power has really taken off…. and some truly fabulous deals can be had! In short, my favorite sites you see featured below, offer you daily deals at unbeatable prices….and some of these deals can only be had through the power of group buying. Be sure to read my latest posts on group buying steals and deals .
Visit my complete list of Daily Deal Sites….not only will you be astounded by the number of them, but you’ll be happy to find out that many of them reward you by referring your friends and family. Yes, you can earn FREE credits to Daily Deal Sites by simply telling your favorite people about them!
Groupon is the most popular site. You can take advantage of discounted sporting events, restaurant deals, and shopping bargains in over 100 major cities. If you’re interested in a deal for your city (or another city), simply “Buy!” the offer before the end of the day. A required minimum number of customers must purchase the advertised deal in order for it to become “tipped”…meaning enough people took advantage of the advertised deal through group bargaining to guarantee it’s a done deal.
