Ready, steady, shop!


Lately, coupon clippers and shopaholics alike have been lucky to enjoy a surge in the booming trend of group buying websites.

For those of you not yet familiar with this concept,  group buying websites offer attractive daily deals at large (sometime up to 90%) discounts off local products and services from businesses who are willing to provide them for a guaranteed number of buyers.

According to eMarketer, 2010’s top ten group buying websites in the US included Groupon, EversaveLivingSocial BuyWithMe, Tippr, DealOn, Crowd Cut, KGB Deals, BlackBoardEats and Half Off Depot.

So much has already been said about the big players in the field, that we thought we might recommend a few smaller, interesting niche-specific dealers:

Juice in the City, claimed to be “launched the day after Mother’s Day 2010 because neither of us got a damn thing we really wanted”, is a group buying site for moms by moms. Each daily deal offered on the site is meant to appeal to women with young children and does not require a certain number of people to sign up.

FamilyFinds is an online daily deal site exclusively focused on families. Interesting deals we found included discount summer art camp and rock climbing classes for the kids, and a photographed family portrait. offers up to 80% discount on “green” products from environmentally responsible companies, and donates 1% of every purchase to the non-profit of your choice.
