Daily Deal Sites: A Rundown

What are Daily Deal sites all about?

A lot of people have been asking me about Daily Deals and what they are all about.   Here’s a rundown of what the daily deal sites are about and a list of the ones that cater to the Jewish and/or Kosher consumer.

Daily Deals

Daily Deal sites are a very popular way to save money on the everyday products and services that you purchase.  By taking advantage of group buying power, they are able to offer consumers the ability to purchase everyday services and products at seriously discounted prices.

Each day, the Daily Deal site features a ‘deal‘ that is available for a limited amount of time.  Some deals are available for one hour, most are available for one day and others are available for one month.  Anyone can purchase the daily deal by visiting the deal website.  The deal sites encourage customers to sign-up and register with them to get regular email updates about the deals they are featuring.  There is no fee to sign up.  You only pay for a deal when you purchase it.

The deals offered vary from discounts on restaurants, grocery and clothing stores, to various products and services.  Deals are offered by geographic location.  So, for example, if you live in New York, when you go to Jewish/Kosher daily deal site you will be shown Kosher restaurant deals for restaurants in the New York area.  You can achieve significant savings when you purchase a daily deal – as long as its for a product or service that you know you will use.  This is what’s behind the Daily Deal strategy – since the deal is only offered for a limited amount of time, you might be more likely to buy a product or service that you wouldn’t have otherwise purchased.  So, for products and services that you use, these sites offer great money saving opportunities.

Groupon:  The pioneer of the daily deal site is Groupon, who is the most well-known deal site today.  You can click here to see Groupon daily deal!

Which are the Kosher/Jewish Daily Deal Sites?

JDeal: JDeal is a daily deal site that caters to the Jewish Community.  They offer seriously surprising deals of up to 80% savings for restaurants, shows, and many other products and services that are of interest to the Jewish consumer.  Click here to see today’s JDeal.

KosherKouponz: KosherKouponz is yet another daily deal site catering to Kosher, Jewish Orthodox community.  You can also find a wide variety of great deals and discounts of up to 80% off everyday services on your favorite Kosher restaurants, hotels, stores and products.  As their promotions say, “What does Groupon Know About Pastrami on Rye?  Not Much”!  Sign up for KosherKouponz daily deal here.

Jewpon:  Jewpon is another daily deal site that caters to the Jewish consumer.  They also offer some really great discounts where you can again save up to 80% on food, clothing, restaurants and other services of interest to the Jewish/Kosher consumer.  View the Jewpon Daily Deal here.

Loyalty Programs

Loyalty Programs are different from Daily Deals .  Many restaurants and popular grocery stores offer loyalty programs that are smart to take advantage of since they offer you significant savings as well.  When you sign up with a loyalty program you recieve money back in the form of a rebate check or special discounts for each dollar you spend with them.  AllergyFreeKosher is a great online store that has a nice loyalty program.  Kosher Advantage is another loyalty program where, for $5 a month you get up to 20% savings when you shop in a participating grocery store or restaurant.  The Gateways Game Changer is another loyalty program that costs $10 a month and offers 5% savings with participating stores and restaurants.

So, now you have a pretty comprehensive list of all the deals available to help you save money.  These deals, of course, are good for anyone, not just the Jewish or Kosher shopper.
