There’s a company called Groupon that apparently is taking over the world. Rumors are circulating that Google attempted to buy Groupon last week for over $3 billion dollars. What I read was that the offer was denied and Google countered a second offer for $5.5 billion, which was also rejected by Groupon’s soon to be very very rich shareholders.
Groupon is only about three years old and doesn’t exist in Santa Barbara, but Axxess Daily Deals does! Essentially, it’s very similar BUT
- We probably are not yet valued at $5.5 billion and last I checked Google had not called me
- We’re Local, our Merchants and our Deals are Local
- We contribute a portion of our sales to local schools
Here’s how it works: Axxess emails you a “deal” once or twice a week that is typically a ridiculous value of 50% off or more. For example, it’ll say something like: $50 for $25 at Restaurant ABC! You can purchase the deal right then and print up your voucher directly on your printer. Viola! You just saved $25 and the voucher is immediately ready to be used. Use it yourself or give it as a gift. Our deals are available to everyone so you can share them on facebook or twitter or email them to friends.
Our deals start this week so keep an eye out and if you don’t already receive Axxess emails, just go to Axxess Daily Deals to sign up (it’s FREE)!
