We all want to “do good”, but sometimes people need a little incentive to participate in a worth while cause. The Mutual is a social platform that provides deals and discounts to use at shops and restaurants for charitable donations. Dubbed the “Groupon for Good” members pay a small fee of $10 / month to view discount opportunities. From the fee 80% goes to a charity, and 20% remains with The Mutual for business growth, administration and day-to-day operations.
Groupon is a super success and we’ve seen new applications come out recently such as DealLocator that leverage its success to bring you a more valued experience. Juice in the City is GroupMom – a group buying website that is just for moms.
DealLocator is a location-based group-buy and coupon finding app that aggregates content from the countless deal sites from around the world into the most intuitive user interface we’ve seen. By leveraging existing technologies like Google Maps, and content from international deal sites, Playground-Digital in Toronto has managed to build this robust application for users to navigate the cluttered group-buying space.
