As expected, Facebook Deals is now being unveiled (a smidgen early too). Could Facebook Deals be a Groupon and/or LivingSocial killer? It’s very possible.

More details inside.


There are a lot of things people do on the internet, but one thing we all seeming to excel at is shopping. Online shopping for the holidays, for example, has been growing steadily over the past few years. One of the benefits of shopping online is there’s more of a choice in retailer, which allows us to find a good deal on whatever it is we’re looking to buy.

To make your life a little easier when it comes to finding a good deal, I’ve compiled a list of a few sites that I frequent in order to save a few bucks. Take a look at these 10 great sites for finding great deals.


With the birth of online coupon and social buying sites, the retail industry has jumped the shark. Mainstream consumers with a penchant for lifestyle products & services and consumers who belong to the long tail with a slightly obscure taste are pampered alike by these websites. After the financial downturn, everyone of us have understood the value of money and group buying sites are making hay while the sun shines.

Arguably, a group buying site is the easiest business to hit the ground and running from day one. The concept benefits everyone in the food chain – the site, consumer and the business owner. Consumers benefit from lower prices by way of collective bargaining, the business gets new patrons and the site gets a cut from the sales. Looking for a way to figure the best among the mushrooming coupon and group deals clones? We’ve got you covered with this list.


Sharing information among social networks these days has grown from your typical profile to nearly every bit of information an individual desires sharing, sometimes even information an individual doesn’t want shared. We’re increasingly sharing private details of our lives and one service takes a step further into that realm, socializing the purchases an individual makes.

Blippy, a rather hot web app recently, makes it easy to socialize your purchases from marketplaces such as iTunes, Amazon, Zappos and many more. The concept is interesting and could be fun, but is it really all it’s cracked up to be? Let alone being safe? We’ll find out after the jump.
