The Deals on the Bus Go Round and Round
Newsflash people: daily deal sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, and Tippr are here to stay. Think of them as the first wave of the second generation of the social media tsunami. Fortunately for daily deal sites, many internet shoppers buy on impulse, not giving a second thought to picking up half price yoga lessons from Henry the Sherpa.
Nonetheless, the evolution of social media and internet shopping has brought forth a new champion! DealsGoRound has launched in a myriad of cities, including Chicago, NYC, San Francisco, Detroit...you get the picture. The beauty part of the site, is they have set up a network where people can buy and sell unused and unwanted coupons from daily deal sites. So if you can't use that Groupon to Maggiano's before it expires, post it on DealsGoRound.
I must admit, the concept is pretty simple, but I am glad someone had the foresight to take advantage of this daily deal boom by offering a new angle on the concept. DealsGoRound is picking up some traction, and users are excited about the possibilities of pawning of their unwanted coupons.
Check it out, for real. I plan on posting my SkyDive Chicago Groupon on there ASAP!
