With the holiday’s just around the corner, everyone today is looking for a way to save some money in whatever way they can, if you’re one of those people who love finding amazing deals, then you are going to love these money saving websites

 

Many people are unaware that they can actually find huge savings online, coupon codes and discount vouchers is one of the best ways to accomplish this. You can find all sorts of local discounts that offer you HUGE savings through websites like WagJag, DealFind, LivingSocial, and Groupon voucher sites. These deal finding websites offer one fantastic deal every day, with discounts of up to 95% at local restaurants, gyms, spas, salons, and many more services. And what`s more, is these websites don’t cost you a penny upfront, and buying vouchers online is quick, simple, and easy to redeem. So there really are no obstacles when it comes to saving money online.

There are no hidden fees, or taxes on these vouchers, whatever price is listed is exactly the price you pay. It’s very simple; you just print the voucher, present it at the location, and enjoy it! There are no hidden fees or catches, you can even leave reviews on the website's blog, or you can ask questions and get answers if you’d like some feedback before purchasing a deal. The one thing you must remember is that there is a time-limit on these deals. They typically last a day. Some websites like DealFind post a deal for 24 hours, while others like WagJag posted deals for typically 3 days. So you can’t hesitate when you find a great deal you like, because you might miss out!

Once you purchase your voucher, you will recieve a confirmation e-mail with a confirmation number. The website will then send you your voucher with confirmation number in about a day, you must download and print it out. When I bought my first voucher I was a little skeptical, but it worked like a charm! It’s very easy, very simple, and worth the price. The voucher has a code that the business will then copy down and put on file to check that it was from a reliable website (like WagJag, DealFind, Groupon, along with other coupon saving websites). WagJag and DealFind do not give away the price on the voucher which makes them great gifts.

Now if you’re worried about spam mail, I am a member of WagJag, Groupon, and DealFind myself, and I have never gotten any spam mail from these websites. The only e-mail I ever receive from them is my daily deal offer (which you must sign up for in order to receive on a daily basis). Of course, I don’t mind them at all because they save me a ton of money on great deals in the city, and you always have the choice whether you want to purchase the offer or not. So there’s no sales pressure from the companies. If you like the deal offered, buy it... If not, wait for a deal that interests you.

For merchants and business owners who are looking to promote their business and generate sales, these websites are a great way to reach out to consumers that otherwise would never have thought of trying a certain brand or service. These websites are quite popular as well, so it works great for us consumers who end up saving a tun of money AND it works great for the retailers who end up gaining business awareness and more customers as well.

These online websites basically empower group buying, it is a new-social-commerce idea which lets people and their friends and family save tons of money on their favorite restaurants, spas, events, and other local services in major cities across North America.  Many of these websites allow you to receive a FREE deal if you SHARE your deal online using an exclusive link they send you after your purchase. For example, if three people buy the same deal using your posted link, then you get a free deal -pretty sweet. So don’t be shy to post your deal on facebook, twitter, or e-mail other friends and family members that might be interested.

To find out more about these online-saving websites, and to start receiving your daily deals, visit dealfind.com, wagjag.com, groupon.com, and ivingsocial.com

For WagJag and DealFind, you can put /Mississauga or whichever city you live in to find deals directly in your city. As of now, LivingSocial and Groupon only promote deals within the Toronto region. You can also follow these deal-trackers through their Twitter and Facebook pages.

It’s a great way to save some money, and even make some money (if you’re a business owner that is), during the holiday season, from the simple click of a button you can find some great online offers as a gift to yourself, or as a quick gift for someone else.

    Brittany: Well with the holiday’s just around the corner, everyone today is looking to save some money in whatever way they can, and if you’re one of those people who love finding amazing deals, then you are going to love these websites... So Catharine, have you ever bought an online voucher before? .....

    Well let me tell you, you are missing out because you can save A LOT of money, through online vouchers that offer you a HUGE savings. These deal-finding websites offer one fantastic deal everyday, with discounts of up to 95% at local restaurants, gyms, spas, salons, and many more services.

    Now the online websites I’m going to be talking about are dealfind, wagjag, and groupon. And what`s more, is these websites don’t cost you a penny upfront, and buying vouchers online is quick, simple, and easy to redeem, so there really are no obstacles when it comes to saving money online.

     

    These are some examples, of some great online deals I found on dealfind in the last couple of weeks…

    (Hold prompter: Showing examples on paper)

    And the price you see is the price you pay, there are not extra costs or taxes. So if the deal is listed as 39$, your paying exactly 39$

    It’s as simple as printing your voucher, presenting it at the location, and enjoying it! And there are no hidden fees, or catches, you can even leave reviews on their blog, or you can ask questions and get answers, if you want some feedback before buying a deal.

    The one thing you must remember is that there is a time-limit on these daily deals. Some websites like dealfind post a deal for 24 hours, while others like WagJag posted deals for about 3 days. So you can’t hesitate when you find a great deal you really like, because you might miss out!

    Catharine: Do these deals expire quickly?

    No, usually not. These deals have the expiration date listed on the ad before your purchase, so you know exactly how long it’s valid for. And these deals  are usually are valid from 6 months up to a year. So you do have lots of time to use them.  Which is great, especially if your planning to use them as a gift.

    Catharine: Okay, so how does the business know it’s a legit voucher and that it’s not a copy?

    Good question. Well the voucher has a code made up of numbers and letters that the business will then copy down and put on file to check that it was from a reliable source. Like WagJag, Dealfind, or Groupon for example.

    Catharine : What do you do once you purchase your voucher online?

    Once you purchase your voucher you will get a confirmation e-mail with a confirmation #. Then it will send you your voucher in about a day, then all you must do is download and print it out. Now, When I got my voucher and printed it I was a little skeptical at first, because it seemed a little too good to be true…  but it worked like a charm! …It was very easy,  simple, and it was well worth the price.

    (HOLD prompter: Romaine put up the website now)

    Catharine: Wouldn’t there be lots of spam mail you might get from sending out your e-mailing to the website?

    No there is no spam mail that I have gotten so far. I am a member of these websites myself, and I have never gotten any spam mail from them. The only e-mail I ever getis my daily deal offer. And ofcourse I don’t mind them because they save me a ton of money.

    Catharine: Do these websites help business owners as well?

    Absolutely. For Merchants, and business owners who are looking to promote their business and generate sales, these websites are a great way to do so. They can reach out to consumers that otherwise would never have thought of trying their brand or service. And they are pretty popular websites as well… So It works great for us consumers who end up saving a lot money… AND it works great for the retailers who end up gaining alot more business awareness, and more customers as well.
