Are you part of the online coupon revolution that has gained prominence this year? If so, you probably suffer from a little email overload each morning. Whether the email is from Groupon, Living Social, or any of the countless other services, a way of managing the deals on a daily basis would be a welcome addition to your daily workflow.
Yipit has a service that is here to help you. Yipit collects the best deals from over 130 sources on a daily basis. The service will then email you a list of the deals that meet a set of preferences you have created within your profile. The profile page consists of numerous categories such as Dining/Nightlife, Health & Beauty, Fitness, Retail Services and Activities & Events. Instantly you will receive an email which highlights numerous deals and gives you the option to hyperlink to the web-based version of the email with every deal for the day listed. A small, but cool feature is you can see from this email how many people have purchased each specific deal and how much time is left on each deal. If you want to query your friends and see if anyone is down to join you in purchasing a specific deal, there is the ability to share via Facebook and Twitter.
Yipit also ties into other mobile applications that you use. For example, by connecting Yipit with your Foursquare account, it starts sorting the deals by the proximity to places you’ve been on Foursquare. This interface gives instant credibility to the service because it knows which places you visit often and potentially where the majority of your spend is. After initially having this feature as part of the service upon launch in early 2009, it was removed in February of 2010. However, Co-Founder Jim Moran says that is it coming back. “Now we track over a thousand offers on any given day on Yipit, dozens and dozens in each city. It makes sense to integrate services like Foursquare once more to improve the experience of users who are structuring lists of their favorite businesses elsewhere.”
If you are a person who thrives on saving money and finding the best deal, I recommend signing up for Yipit. In addition to saving money, you can also learn about next and exciting things to do in whatever city you reside. All business owners, it is also wise to work with Yipit. For a company to get mentions on national news and talk show programs (CBS Early Show), means that buzz is building. Why not take advantage of free publicity?Category: Apps | Tags: Daily Deals, foursquare, Groupon, Jim Moran, Living Social, Yipit
