Quick Pitch: Dealery brings together daily group deals from multiple sources in one convenient place
Genius Idea: Local, daily deals are the new hotness in the world of startups. Groupon is the king of that scene, and it’s spawned dozens of clones. Additionally, many larger, older web companies such as Yelp and Amazon have taken to offering their own daily deals. Dealery recognizes that checking multiple sources to find the one deal that’s right for you is a time-consuming pain; its product brings a multitude of daily deals near you together in a simple and convenient interface.
Dealery presents its users with a single-page “cheat sheet” for their city. Users can quickly scan the day’s top deals, view the source of the deal, the total savings for that deal and the time remaining to purchase the deal.
As founder and CEO Limor Elkayam told us in an e-mail, “People don’t want to spend a ton of time looking for great deals, and we make it easy for them to always find one.”
The startup is sourcing its deals from sites including Groupon, LivingSocial, BuyWithMe and a slew of other sites and services. The site also allows for side-by-side comparisons of different deals.
Here’s a look at the Dealery dashboard, with the various sources of deals highlighted:
Right now, supported cities include Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Seattle. Dealery plans to add more locations soon.
Having a single, real-time dashboard to quickly view and monitor hot local deals is a boon for bargain-hunters; it’s also not a bad business idea, given the popularity and growth of this vertical. Dealery gets a revenue share from each deal, either a flat fee for each deal bought or a percentage of that sale.
