DealGooder is another daily deal website that gives users the opportunity to give back to their local communities. Users can sign up to receive a daily deal notification. Each day, DealGooder presents a discount (which can be as much as 90% off the original price). The user can choose to purchase it or watch for the next day’s deal. The user is also encouraged to share their daily deal because they deal is only valid if the minimum number of participants purchase it. If too few users purchase the deal, no one is charged and it is not made active. Each time a daily deal is purchased, DealGooder donates to charities. A new charity is featured each week and a lofty 50% of DealGooder’s profits are donated. Businesses and non profit organizations can contact DealGooder to sign up to list a deal or become a featured charity.Show more screenshots »
DealGooder was created to allow consumers to save money while donating to a charity. The website offers a buy and feel good system that has made it an appealing option for many online shoppers. Today, the DealGooder team includes public relations and marketing expert Cara Mungo, Erica Austin, Todd Meyer and Ethan Austin.
DealGooder offers a service that is very similar to every other daily deal website out there. Users who are in California will get the most benefit (seeing as this appears to be the only location option available at this time). What really makes DealGooder an attractive option is the large portion of profits they donate to the weekly charity. The site lists a donation amount of 50% of their profits.
The DealGooder website invites visitors with a colorful design and two comical characters, Pounce the red dog and Dale Goodman the “chief do-gooder.” Both can be found throughout the website and featured heavily on the homepage. Visitors will notice a vibrant color scheme and comical design that really works for this type of website.
Visitors can click on the gold “My Account” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage to get started. This takes the user to the log in area which includes another gold link that reads “Sign Up.” Users can also click the dark blue Facebook button along the right hand side of the log in page to register that way. Those who prefer the traditional route are asked to provide a first and last name, email address and password.
Just like any other daily deal website, DealGooder wants to entice new users to sign up. The best way to do that is to offer free membership to anyone. All users can create an account for free, there are no set up fees or subscription costs. The user is not required to make any purchases to maintain their account, either. The total spent on DealGooder depends entirely on the user’s daily deal purchasing habits.
DealGooder is a way for many people to save. The site is appealing because it allows users to buy locally and receive significant discounts while giving to a charity. Almost anyone in DealGooder’s service area can find something appealing to purchase if they monitor the daily deals long enough.
