Back when I started London Daily Deals back in 2010, Keynoir was one of the first and brightest star in the daily deal space for London. They were going to target really high end, luxury daily deals – the likes of the Marcus Wareing Restaurant.
The Latest News
Oh dear! WOWcher, after having been in the slow lane in the daily deal race, decided to offer FREE Odeon cinema tickets (with a £1 admin booking fee) to its customers on Friday, 13th May. As befitting with the date, they haven’t had much luck with their campaign as their site has crashed under the weight of the surge in traffic.
Lets face it, deal sites are not the most ethical shops online. Through the last year, we have heard and seen about lots of deals that were not as good as they seem, a big group-buying site pumping up their numbers (now finally fixed), and horror stories of not being able to get any appointment or reservation dates because the deal was too popular.
In an interesting development of events that wouldn’t seem out of place on April Fool’s Day, there’s currently a “deal” up on Groupon’s Cincinnati page, titled “A Surprise for a Dana from a Greg“. Somewhere, somehow, Greg has managed to get Groupon to host his marriage proposal to Dana – will she accept?
The gullible fool I am, I thought it was actually some sort of deal at first! Maybe some kind of anti-Christmas party, or The Grinch on DVD.
