the power of community buying
Today, we used our first Groupon voucher and got some yummy gelato at the Dubai Mall. I've been seeing all the daily deals that they had, but was a bit wary of trying it out, so when I saw a deal for a cup of gelato, I thought this is the best time to try it out without losing out too much if something goes wrong. Well, the system is very simple and straightforward. You buy the coupon online via credit card and once the deal closes, you get an email with the voucher which you print out and voila, you're done. The whole community buying/deal saving deal has taking Dubai by storm it seems. We've got several similar companies offering some really awesome deals, everything from dhow dinner cruises to dental treatments to hair and beauty stuff to some amazing deals of restaurants.
