10/29 KVOA's Savvy Savings News Story Information- My Favorite 6 Daily Deal Websites

Welcome, KVOA viewers!  Here's the information
from the story that will air TODAY on the 4 p.m. news program.

My FAVORITE Six Daily Deal Websites 

All are FREE to sign up.  All offer 50-90% deals daily off retail websites, restaurants, salons, major attractions, services, and more.  You have an allotted amount of time (generally 1 to 3 days) to purchase the deal and generally 6 months to a year to redeem the deal at the business or website.   So, here's my list of Favorites:

Living Social offers a daily deal specifically for Tucson Monday through Thursday and a weekend deal Friday through Sunday.  They offer the same type of deals for 89 other market areas as well.

You have until Sunday to purchase this deal and until 05/01/11 to use the voucher.
Deal Location
828 E. Speedway
Tucson, AZ 85719

You get $5 Deal Bucks to use on your first order at Living Social which could get you today's deal $10 of Gourmet Tacos and drinks from Boca for FREE or $20 of food or drink for only $5.


Groupon is one of the most well known Daily Deal sites.  For Tucson, they offer a daily deal Monday through Thursday and a weekend deal Friday through Saturday.  They often offer a side deal as well as the main deal.  They almost daily have online deals that are listed under a specific city but can be ordered by any one in the United States since they ship directly to your home.  Today they have 10 of these online deals available.

This Weekend's Tucson Groupon Deal:


$15 for $30 Worth of Mediterranean-Inspired Fare and Drinks at Azul Restaurant and Lounge at The Westin La Paloma

You have through Sunday to purchase this deal and until May 1, 2011 to use it.

Nationwide Groupons

The following Groupon Daily offers are available in certain cities BUT the offers are redeemable online which makes them available to everyone

To see the particular offer you are interested in, look for the city offering the deal under “Visit More Cities” at the top of the Groupon homepage. Here are the offers available today:
