New Zealand already has it’s share of daily deal sites which include GrabOne, Spreets and very recently, Treat Me by Trade Me just to name a few. At the moment it looks like GrabOne is winning the race and covers more regions around New Zealand other than the main centres of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. If you take a look at a newspaper or billboards around Auckland it is plan to see that they are putting a lot into marketing themselves. But, the big daddy of deal a day sites Groupon is setting up shop in New Zealand and this may mean that sites already established over here may need to change the way the do things in order to compete with Groupon who have a lot more money to play with which could give them more reach.
With the introduction of Groupon to a New Zealand daily deal market that already seems quite saturated given that it only has a population of about 4.3 million it does make you wonder how successful they will be? Whatever the case may be, it will still mean even more deals for people to choose from. On the odd occasion, one of these sites may have a deal on something that you have really wanted to eat, see or do. With them offering up to 90% off whatever it is, this for you will mean a huge saving on that item. It doesn’t hurt to sign up to these sites and stay up to date with what they have to offer because you are bound to come across a deal too good to pass up.
