OurDeal Offers Group-Style Discounts

Buying in bulk is a staple approach to saving money with physical goods. OurDeal offers a similar approach to "experiences", with daily discounts on meals, sports and other activities if enough people sign up for a given deal.

OurDeal is entering a somewhat crowded marketplace, with both JumpOnIt.com and Ouffer.com providing similar services that use the "if enough people buy it, we all get the discount" metaphor. That's not a bad thing if it means a diverse choice of deals to consider -- the risk is that, as with gadget deal of the day sites, every one of them ends up selling discount pedometers.

That said, so far OurDeal seems to have had a decent mix of dining and recreation offers. Currently the service is operating in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, with other cities to follow.

    The deal of the day concept is taken directly from the US and seems to be a relatively good business model. However, the limitations of this style of discount offer site is you only get to choose one offer at a time. What if your looking for something specific? Then that's where these sites fall over.
    Lots of people are now searching for what offers/discounts and available via laptops and increasingly mobile phones so a mobile version is certainly where the market is headed!!!

      I agree, I found really cool site (http://www.whatsonoffer.com.au) that has heaps of offers not just one.

    Agree with Dan, whatsonoffer.com.au is a killer website with heaps of offers and has an awesome mobile version... My wife and I always use this website from our mobile phone's while we are out and about.
