Part 2: Daily Deal Sites

by Kay Lynn

QR Code bairdphotos-bar-codePart 1 of this post listed four daily deal sites and they were the more well-known choices. The list below should include at least one or two new ones for you.

None of these have smart phone apps yet unless specified otherwise.

5. Mamapedia. The unique feature of this site is that 5% of your purchase price goes to the school of your choice. As the name suggests, the target audience is mothers and their families. Being a mom is not a requirement to scoring deals at this site.

6. Tippr. You get three deals a day at Tippr. They only have deals for a dozen cities today, but since many deals are online you might want to sign up for the closest city.  You get $5 credit if any referred friend makes a purchase.

7. Zozi. This site focuses on activities versus goods. Deals for San Diego last week included paintball and piloting a plane. The deals are currently sent twice a week and available for a limited number of cities.

8. Daily Dealster. There are a large number of US cities available at this site which specializes in local offerings. Instead of being able to print your vouchers, this site charges $1.50 shipping fee. Recent offerings in my area have been restaurants, spas and one for tires.

9. Social Buy. This site has member rewards which ultimately can be converted to free money to spend on the site. There are daily deals offered in most major US cities. A recent local deal was for tickets to the San Diego Chargers game tonight but run the gamut from a men’s toiletry kit to spas.

In addition to these, don’t forget to check your newspapers. I get daily deals from three local publications and you don’t have to be a print customer to sign up.  Are you signed up for daily deal emails?

I like dealradar.com (it aggregates all the deals on 1 page).

I love checkin’ out Woot. It’s only one product per day, but usually a great bargain and the writers are hilarious.

I used to do Woot and even have their app on my phone. It was rare when I’d find something to buy so I stopped reading it. The writing is fun though and reason enough to check it out. Thanks for reminding me.
