Before launching the new site
, we have a couple of last hurrahs left on this one. For now, we’ll talk about groupons (again)
. Since late last year, we’ve featured some of the more popular ones on this blog (read part 1 here and part 2 here)
. Since then, groupon sites have come a long way.
Besides new sites popping up every once in a while, the newest trend in the groupon market is aggregators. Someone came up with the excellent idea of collating all the great deals from all the different groupon sites out there making life much easier for us deal mongers users.
Here are BaconTunaMelt
‘s newest deal finds on the wide world of the Intarwebz-

As I understand it, CityPoynt has been around offering good deal after good deal for a while now. But I’ve only been aware of them a month or so ago when they offered a deal that I couldn’t resist. I signed up as soon as I could and have kept checking back for more.
Their web design and simple and quite easy to navigate, which I personally think is an important factor in any site that involves online purchase.

Dealies.ph is one of those groupon site aggregators I was talking about earlier in this post. It features deals from various groupon sites in Manila and lists them down in one handy page. The people behind Dealies.ph are from Berlin, Germany but be assured that the deals listed on their page are legitimately offered in our motherland.
3. Pilipinas Best Buys

Pilipinas Best Buys is one of the newer groupon sites I’ve stumbled upon. The site looks friendly with a very local flavor to it and they’re currently offering a roundtrip airfare ticket from Manila to New York at 50% off. It looks to be a great deal to me, even after reading the fine print (and that’s saying something). PBB is a groupon site worth checking out.
4. All Deals Asia

All Deals Asia is another groupon site aggregator featuring deals from different Manila groupon sites. I haven’t tried buying form them yet but they have a cute Sherlock Holmes-y icon that I’ve grown fond of (I’m shallow liek that). They also feature deals from Singapore, Hongkong, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia which can be easily filtered out and could be useful (for frequent Asia travelers).
And there you have it, that’s my groupon haul for the day. I hope you guys find them useful (please do tell us your groupon stories in the comments). Also, please watch out for the launch of the new BaconTunaMelt site. Soon, I promise!
