Guest Post: 97% off or even for FREE!

The Following is a Guest Post from one of my readers, Charli. They wish to
spread the word of how daily deal sites, such as can save you 
tons of money!

By now you have probably heard all about the Group buying websites and how you can find massive savings on local products and services. But recently I found a way you can get these great deals for next to nothing … sometimes even free!

One of the most exciting developments in online coupons has been the emergence of these "Daily Deals" websites, so it's not surprising they seem to be exploding across the web right now.

You know the type, each day you log on to the website to see the latest jaw dropping deal, which only lasts 24 hours and promises to save you anywhere from 50% to 90% off the hottest restaurants, entertainment, shopping and more in your local area. You enter your credit card details to purchase the deal upfront and depending on the website you may have to wait for a certain number of deals to be sold. Once the minimum buy has been met the deal goes live, your credit card is charged and you receive your coupon.

This new breed of coupon / deal site can work spectacularly well at it's best. They are exciting, addictive, you can share them with friends and most importantly you really can save a staggering amount of money with these discounts.

But they don't always work as well as you might like. Some of the more recent websites often struggle to make their minimum quota, meaning the deal never goes live, and you have just wasted your time.

You probably already know a few of these websites and there are more starting up every month it seems. One of the better ones I have found is the SavingLane daily deals site and this is where I came across a way to get free deals.

One of the best things about the website is that the deals are always live, there is no minimum number to be sold first. And the discounts seem to average over 90% off, on the deals they feature, that's more than most sites of this type.

But that's not why I love this site.

The real benefit here is that for every friend you get to join in a deal, they will credit you $10 to use towards your next purchase . With most of the discounts already being up to a massive 95% off, you will find they can quite often sell for around $10. Which means of course that you can almost get a free deal for yourself every time you get a friend to join.

It is really easy to do and the deals are so amazing you will want to share them with your friends and family anyway. Your friends will thank you for a great deal … and you will score an even better deal yourself.

I have found offers as low as $2 on this site, so with a few referrals, that's a lot of free items coming your way.

Thanks, Charli!

So what is the most amazing deal you have scored from a daily deals site?
I would love to hear about them!
