Since its launch in May 2011, less than two months ago, D3ALS has presented its users with an incredible 100,000 group buying offers.
DUBLIN, Ireland, July 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- When the economic going gets tough, the savvy among us get group buying - and the success of daily deals aggregator D3ALS.ie (known as D3ALS.co.uk in UK and D3ALS.us in the USA) shows just how eager consumers are to find bargains on some of life's little luxuries.
Since its launch on May 26, 2011, less than two months ago, D3ALS has presented its users with an incredible 100,000 group buying offers.
The website aggregates UK daily deals (D3ALS.co.uk); daily deals in Ireland (D3ALS.ie); and the best daily deals in the USA (D3ALS.us). It offers users access to daily deals in the region of their choice so they can capitalise on unique experiences and substantial savings.
The likes of Groupon, KGB and Living Social are well-established for presenting internet users brand new deals every day ranging from weekend breaks; to restaurant offers; and reductions on spa and beauty treatments. Customers then agree to "buy" a deal and if enough people sign up for the same offer then they receive a voucher via email. There is no risk for the consumer because if not enough people sign up, then the deal is simply cancelled with no charge. Merchants benefit by securing new business and cheaply promoting their products; while consumers benefit from enjoying unusual experiences at affordable prices.
Where the D3ALS concept comes into its own however, is that it acts as an aggregator for all of these websites. Just as comparison websites list quotes from 100s of insurers, D3ALS collaborates these daily offers from all leading group buying websites so users don't have to trawl around the internet and can instead find all of the best offers in one place.
Daire McCarthy, the founder of D3ALS and owner of discount voucher website 5HOP5, believes the success of the concept is all about good timing.
"Society is facing so many economic pressures - through raised food, energy and fuel prices - that to find deals that offer a little bit of indulgence at affordable prices is such a welcome relief," McCarthy said.
"For D3ALS to aggregate 100,000 deals in less than two months just emphasises how much the group buying concept is catching on. By collaborating offers from so many of the leading websites, D3ALS has a unique position in the marketplace as the obvious first port of call for consumers' group buying needs," McCarthy said.
