Social Deal Map (Review) & $25 Restaurant.com Giveaway

Giveaway now closed. Congrats to Tater95!
Looking for a Deal? I always love finding a great deal!!! SocialDealMap.com is a great site that is so easy to navigate. You will want to check it out!!!

Everyone loves a Bargain and/or a Great Deal. Now, you can easily find online bargains and deals by doing a simple search. When it comes to local services such as restaurants, Child Care Service, Movies, Museums, show tickets, Gyms, etc. 90% of the time without planning, people are paying full price. As the emerging of group buy sites, such as groupon, local deals start to come out. But do you know there are hundreds groupon-type websites on the internet? Checking one by one is simply impossible. While Social Deal Map makes it easy to find all such types of deals.

Social Deal Map aggregates deals from numerous group buy websites and these deals are hand picked and displayed on a map. These deals are added and updated everyday, or even every few hours. The map is very similar to a google map and indeed it is made by google map. Instead of showing you driving directions, It pinpoints all local deals available. You can move, zoom the map or search a specific location and check out what is available nearby. Most of the deals are a savings of 50% off or more. After checking these deals out, you would not want to pay full price for a restaurant bill again.

You can check out the deals, by either looking at the info bubble that shows up on the map, or, if you prefer, you can check the left hand side, which contains all deals within the map. You can flip the page by clicking on the arrows, or you can zoom in the map to specific place to reduce the number of pages on the left hand side. If you prefer the pure text version of group buy deals, you can simply go to the bottom of the page and select the state which you are located in and then find the city. You would come to the regular page of deal aggregation site, browser all deals within or near your city.

This is really useful for people who commute or travel around. It is so easy to browse by the map and find out what is available on your way or near your destination. This would be very useful to help cut your expenses especially when vacationing by using this to help find discounts on your hotel and restaurants.

Why pay full price again? With this easy to use site, you won't have too!!!

Want to save some money on dinner? Win it!!!

One of my lucky readers will win a $25 Restaurant.com Gift Certificate.

I'm sure if I was in a more metro-area I'd like the site more, but, there is only one deal in my area.

With the pin points on the map after a zip was put in it was convenient to find a location and a deal.
