DealWatch Solves the Daily Deal Email Dilemma

(Auckland, New Zealand, August 15, 2012) – We sure do love our daily deals – the daily deal market represents a staggering portion of Internet shopping, it was introduced in New Zealand two years ago and to date has seen over 4 million vouchers sold.

This unique online market has consumers hunting down the best local deals in their city. Rapid growth sparked an Internet phenomenon that saw the rise of over 15 daily deal sites throughout New Zealand many of which have now been consolidated.

With so many daily deal sites around our inboxes are being cluttered with daily deal emails and it is getting harder to keep track of them all. Many are getting fed up and simply unsubscribing from all the sites – taking at a loss the ability to keep track of the many great deals each local city has to offer.

But if your looking to have your cake and eat it to, a New Zealand based website – DealWatch – has the answer. Launched by a group of aspiring IT entrepreneurs, the website uses astounding technology that somewhat imitates a Google Search – crawling the many daily deal websites every hour on the hour. The site aims to bring all the daily deals together in an easy to read, user-friendly and standardised format.

“By having all the deals together in one location we are able to sort the entire deal market based on popularity. With a simple visit to DealWatch, users can find the most popular ‘top’ deal without having to visit 8 different websites”, says Alex Whiteside, co-founder of DealWatch.

DealWatch began by tracking some of the larger New Zealand players such as GrabOne, GroupOn, DailyDo and has since expanded by adding others to its ‘sort list’ such as Groupy, TreatMe and Yazoom.

The primary vision behind DealWatch is to save savvy consumers both time, and money. DealWatch will also send you an aggregated email each day of the best local deals. This email contains all the top local deals and a few of the most popular travel deals.

Even better, these emails can be personalised to your every desire – when subscribing to the service users are given an opportunity to specify which categories they are interested in.

“The future of this industry is set to expand and we are only now seeing the great potential of these daily deals”, says Mr Whiteside. DealWatch currently serves over 16 cities including Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown and many other regionals.
