Review / Giveaway – Social Deal Map!

What is it exactly?

From the website…
Wondering where you can find great bargains? This is the right place. We are a group of people spending our time searching coupons, promotion, discounts over 20000 stores.

"...Every one love Bargain and Deal. Nowadays People can easily find
online bargain and deals by do a simple search. While comes to local
services such as restaurant, Child Care Service, Movie, Museum, show
ticket,  Gym etc. 90% of the time without planning, people are paying
for the full price. As the emerging of group buy sites, such as
groupon, local deals start to come out. But do you know there are
hundreds groupon-type website on the internet? Check one by one is
simply impossible. While Social Deal Map make it  easy to find all
such type of deals.

Social Deal Map aggregate deals from numerous group buy websites and
these deals are hand picked and displayed them on a map. These deals
are added and updated everyday, or even every few hours. The map is
very similar to a google map and indeed it is made by google map.
Instead of showing you driving direction,  It pinpoints all local
deals available. You can move, zoom the map or search a specific
location and check out what is available nearby. Most of the deals are
off by 50% or more. After checking these deals out, you would not want
to pay full price for a restaurant bill.

You can check out the deal by either look at the info bubble show up
on the map, or, if you prefer, you can check the left hand side, which
contains all deals within the map, you can flip the page by clicking
on the arrows, or you can zoom in the map to specific place to reduce
the number of pages on the left hand side. If you prefer pure text
version of group buy deals. you can simply go to the bottom of the
page, select the state which you are located and then find the city,
you would come to the regular page of deal aggregation site, browser
all deals within or near your city. On the left hand side, there is
RSS subscription, you can subscribe to the RSS or newsletter specific
to the place you choose.

It is even more useful for people who commute or travel around. Just
by browsing the map, you can find out what is available on your way or
your destination. For example, when you planning your vacation,
restaurant bill is usually a big part. With social deal map, you can
find out which restaurant near your hotel got bargains and you can
easily cut your eat out expense into half..."

Review…

I’ve recently had the pleasure of reviewing Social Deal Map! Please read on . . .


Packaging & Presentation

Social Deal Map is an online website that easily lets you focus on what deals YOU want.


Ease of Use

Social Deal Map is very user friendly!  When you first open the page, you see a map on the right hand side that is right for your area, as you can easily type your information in the search bar.


Next, on the left side of the page, you can focus on either Local or National Deals.  The easiest way to focus, is to click on the FILTER tab.  From this point, you can click on deal websites that interest you in particular.

When you hover over a local link, it pops up without even clicking on it, to give you a better idea of exactly where the deal is taking place.  It just so happens that my favorite Sushi place is having a spectacular deal!


Now, since I like Domo Sushi so much, I will buy this one, and walk you through the ease of the process:
  • I clicked on the link, then clicked on Get the Deal.
  • I entered the code that Social Deal Map provided, and I got my Sushi $25 gift certificate for $4.50.

Looks as if it is just getting started in Tulsa, since there were not very many local deals. But I did like the fact that the pop-up info stayed there so that you could click to get further info. So often, those pop-up information windows disappear almost as rapidly as they appear.

It would go to my daughter in CA--she has a much wider variety of restaurants in which to use it--there are only a few in the Tulsa area that take it.
