Every morning, my phone starts beeping around 4AM. Nope, it’s not my alarm [I wake up early on my own]. Nope, they’re not work emails [I still haven’t figured out how to sync my mail account to my phone]. Nope, they’re not good morning messages from my Dear [those don’t happen until approximately 8AM]. So then what are all the alerts? My subscriptions. Yup, I think I’ve probably subscribed to 25+ different deals, groups, mailings, etc. over the years.
Here’s a look at the first six of them [and a little about them] at 6AM…
bloomspot: “bloomspot brings its members opportunities to experience peerless luxury and exciting, exclusive experiences. Offers are available only for limited times and in limited quantities: now is the time, we insist, to live life better.”
specialicious: “Specialicious is brought to you by the same hard-working, NoVA-loving individuals who publish Northern Virginia Magazine each month… we wanted to offer our beloved readers exclusive deals from the local businesses everyone loves—as well as a few from newbies we expect everybody will fall for soon.”
Groupon: “Groupon grew out of a website called The Point, a website launched in November 2007 that lets you start a campaign asking people to give money or do something as a group — but only once a “tipping point” of people agree to participate… We came up with the patent-pending idea for Groupon as an antidote to a common ailment for us city-dwellers: there’s so much cool stuff to do, but the choice can be overwhelming… Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in 43 countries, and soon beyond.”
eversave: “Eversave has consistently been ranked one of the top savings websites in America, helping millions of people save money with printable grocery coupons, free samples and great offers from national brands like Macys, Overstock and Pampers. In 2010, we took our savings expertise to the local level by launching the Save. In addition to national deals, consumers can now count on us to find fantastic deals on businesses right in their own neighborhoods.”
Amazon.com: “At Amazon.com, we believe that innovation has the power to change the world… we constantly look for new ways to innovate on behalf of our different customers: individuals who shop our global websites, merchants who sell on our platform, developers who use our infrastructure to create their businesses, and creators of the books, music, films, games and other content we sell through our websites.”
Oprah.com Newsletter: “Stay up to date with the latest trends that matter the most to you… Have expert advice and tips delivered directly to you… Be in the know on current and upcoming events.”
