Businesses like Groupon, Zulily and Living Social have really got my number. I mean, what girl doesn’t love a great deal? Though if I’m perfectly honest with myself, most of the deals I’ve purchased so far are things I wasn’t in the market for… and things I would not have bought had they not been on sale.
A gift certificate to a new restaurant. A deal at my husband’s favorite coffee shop (okay, this one really did save us money on a regular purchase!). Yesterday, I purchased a matching set of clothes for my daughter and her American Girl Doll. Did I need this one? Well… maybe! Who doesn’t want to make their kids happy?! 🙂
Overall, it’s GENIUS marketing!
Enter the latest in daily deal sites… and this one is LOCAL. It’s called Des Moines Daily, and their offices are at the corner of Meredith Drive and Merle Hay (incidentally, this is the original location of the Pulse 101.7FM studios years ago!). I look forward to having another option for getting great deals… and the fact that it’s local will probably make it even easier to talk me into another purchase!
Des Moines Daily launches on Monday, April 18th. Happy deal hunting!
