Good news! After 18 months of discussion, Living Social have finally come on board and now complete the picture to ensure that Buyometric really is providing a selection of ALL the best deals from across the UK.
Living Social has a huge range of offers to suit every type of deal fan and now those offers are available in your “daily dose of deals” courtesy of Buyometric. From local offers on restaurants, spas, and haircuts to national brand products, luxurious escapes and fantastic family experiences – there’s something for everyone.
So, what took us so long?
Living Social are a US company, and in early 2011, a decision in their Washington DC head office was taken to steer clear of working with deal aggregators. However the popularity of Buyometric in the UK has reached across the pond, and with the support of the Living Social UK team we’ve joined up with them in a strategic partnership that will see our users benefit from more choice than anywhere else.
We went to meet the guys and girls over at the Living Social UK head offices, and I have to say – I was impressed.
Signing in on a brand new iPad, before being shown to the “Social” bar was great, but passing the games room – Table Tennis, Foosball and Arcade Dance Machines – before dropping by the “picnic” meeting room (grass floors, picnic tables and sundrenched skies), made me realise that our own humble London Bridge office has a long way to go.
There was a definite sense of pride and achievement and we’re confident that this will shine through in the quality of the offers we’re now sharing with you.
To celebrate this new partnership and to show how ecstatic we are to be working together, we’re giving away £100 worth of Living Social vouchers to one lucky winner to be selected at random from anyone who purchases a Living Social deal through Buyometric before the 9th July 2012. Terms can be found here.
We knew we were in safe hands when we met with Kidoo and discovered that the founders had previously been involved in the world of Daily Deal aggregation. Like us, they understand that not everything is for everyone and that makes keeping you up to date on deals by your favourite children and family brands all the more straight forward.
Kidoo cover everything from baby essentials, children’s and maternity fashion, healthcare, toys, to soft-play activities, unique experiences, family holidays and everything in between.
We know they’re going to fit right in and look forward to working closely with them to really improve our family deals offerings.
Kate Garraway came up with the idea and name Goodypass.com after she set out to find ways of developing a long term business that offered something real and of value to her fans. As Kate says “I’ve always known that I’m incredibly lucky to get gifts and discounts just because I’m on TV. But thanks to my new website I now have the chance to share a slice of the celebrity lifestyle with you”.
What’s different and so great about Goodypass is its celebrity focus. Kate has expanded the idea to a number of her celebrity friends and all of the deals are now endorsed by them. Every celebrity has their own section of the website where they provide unique content for their fans – blogs, photos, videos etc – and allow visitors to the site to communicate directly with them.
After discussing some their plans with Commercial Director, Thomas Duncan, it’s clear to me that there is potential for a fantastically successful, long term relationship with Goodypass and I look forward to giving Buyometric supporters the opportunity to benefit from the same great “Celebrity Discounts”.
