How do Group Buying and Daily Deal sites work?
These sites use the collective buying power of their members to negotiate great discounts. Each deal will usually expire after a certain period, sometimes as short as one day. As a member, you can receive daily emails offering products and services at greatly reduced prices, sometimes up to 90% off. Most sites allow you to see deals from your local area, as well as nationwide. You can also be rewarded for recommending the service to friends.
What kind of deals are available?
The most popular deals tend to be for restaurants, hotel and spa breaks, theme parks, and health & beauty treatments. While many sites offer a wide variety of products, some specialise in a particular niche such as deals for mums and children, discounted gadgets, or holiday deals. See below where to look for the type of deals you need.
