Forget Groupon, it serves you all kinds of deals some of which you probably don’t care about at all. Loopt (think it) has something better – their newly launched u-Deals service allows you to create your own deal and invite friends to take advantage of the offer, too. Of course, not all of the deals created will be accepted — Loopt will check with (pitch) the local business to see whether they are willing to participate and if so, the deal is on. Everyone who committed will receive the deal, and some deals will remain open for a limited time for additional users to buy in.
Sounds cool though at the moment u-Deals is limited to Android users in the San Francisco Bay Area. We’re sure additional cities and platforms will follow as soon as u-Deals proves profitable to local businesses and Loopt.
Right from the start, there’s a great offer waiting for you. Loopt is offering $100 off roundtrip travel on Virgin America. Limit 1 per person and 1 voucher per itinerary.
