Before we begin I have to make a confession: my sister is a “bargain” junkie. Every day she surfs daily deals websites and waits for her mail updates, in search for the next “great deal”. At first, I was kind of skeptical and making a bit fun of her and her enthusiasm about her new find. But all that changed one Thursday when she laid out her week-end schedule: Friday night dinner at a very fancy restaurant – two menus, pay only one; Saturday, concert – tickets 30% off, and Sunday a day at a local spa, full treatment for only 15 Euros. These were just a few of the deals she found online.
Everybody loves a bargain. This is the main idea behind daily deal applications. These kind of web apps provide users with special offers to events, shows, expositions etc. to which otherwise you probably wouldn’t have gone either because of the “high price” or lack of information. It is a great way for users to experience something new and for businesses to get some exposure.
Today, we hand out the App Awards to those daily deal apps that make us feel like we stroke gold or like Christmas is around the corner.
Best feature: DealsGoRound
The best feature that a daily deal web app can have is that of allowing you to sell your deal. Say you wanted to go to a Celine Dion concert with your girlfriend. She’s her favorite, and you wanted to score some easy points with her. But at the last moment (a few hours before the concert) she calls and she says she can’t go – her cat just choke on a hairball. What do you do? You’re not going to go to that concert alone… No problem, just use DealsGoRound and resell that deal.
