Daily deal sites have been around for awhile now, and I thought it was about time that I talked about them. When I saw my first daily deal site, I honestly thought it was some type of scam. There’s no way companies would offer up to a 90% discount on their services/products, would they?
After over a year of watching and purchasing from deal sites, I can honestly say that yes, they would!
If you’re not aware, daily deal sites are websites that offer local deals at a discount of 50%-90% off regular price. All you have to do is give them your email address and let them know what city you live in, and you will be sent a new daily deal every day (or you can just visit their websites when you feel like it).
The types of deals available vary from restaurants, clothing stores, beauty services, etc. Some daily deal sites are now even offering grocery items and travel packages for fantastic prices.
The Best Canadian Daily Deal Websites:
Groupon (Canada & United States) – Groupon is the most popular daily deals website out there. They offer deals for clothing, restaurants, exercise classes, and more. Instead of using a credit card, you can also pay for your purchase by using Groupon Bucks. You earn these bucks by referring people to the site. If someone signs up and makes their first purchase within 72 hours of clicking the link you email them, you will earn a credit of $10.
Groupon also offers travel deals and “goods” (actual products instead of classes, etc.).
WagJag (Canada) – WagJag is my favourite daily deals website. I have seen many great deals on there (some that I have been too slow to snag and missed out on) for a variety of different things! The savings are so good that you will want to keep checking the site so that you don’t miss out on anything. WagJag offers more than just their regular daily deals – they offer grocery, golf and travel deals as well.
As for their referral program, you will receive a $10 credit in your account when each new person you refer makes their first purchase.
Dealfind (Canada & United States) – You can find many great deals on Dealfind. Recent deals have been for massages, laser hair removal, house cleaning and restaurants.
When you refer someone to the website and they make a purchase, Dealfind automatically credits you for the purchase with a portion of it’s value (and they pay you in cash).
