28 Ways to Save on Anything – Entertainment, Attractions, Shopping, and more with Daily Deal Sites!

Join me everyday in February as I share ways to save money on just about anything you need, want, use!

Daily Deal sites are popping up all over the place and if you understand them, you can save big on fun things for your family to do!

Daily Deal Sites – What are they?

Basically, a Daily Deal site is a site that a company can use to sell items in a large quantity at a discount.  We’ll use tickets as an example.  An amusement park/theater/etc comes to the daily deal site and says, “We will sell these tickets for 50% off if you can sell 300 of them.”  So the site lists the deal.  Now, the first 299 people that “buy the deal” haven’t actually bought the deal until that 300th person comes along.  But once the threshold is met, “the deal is on”.  Sometimes there will be a cap on how many deals there are to purchase or a time limit on how long the deal lasts.  But you can generally score some good deals.

A good example of a daily deal site is Groupon – think a coupon for a group and it kinda helps you understand the premise.  I got a $50 Gift Certificate to Gap for $25 from Groupon once.

Here are the daily deal sites you can join:
