High Value Local Coupons
Coupons.com introduces the Daily Deal, which offers fantastic discounts from local businesses on the best things to do around town. These deals can be up to 90 percent off retail prices and are available in very limited quantities, and only for a limited time. Deals offer steep discounts for dining, attractions, services, get-aways, goods and more-from spa days to scuba diving lessons and car detailing to the city`s best crepes.
Typical deals might include:
"Characterized as unbelievable, amazing, insane, exceptional, fantastic, even extreme!, consumers will not believe the offers on our Daily Deal," said Boal. "But regardless of what they`re called, the offers change frequently, are available in limited supply and sell out fast, so people will want to check out the deals early, and often."
Up to two offers are available each day, including a Featured Offer and a Bonus Deal. Consumers can sign up for the Daily Deal Alert newsletter to receive alerts as soon as the new deals are posted. The Daily Deal is currently available for 40 metro areas.
