DealGator Uses Aggregation To Offer Users Different Deals From Multiple Sites

dealgatorBoston based start up DealGator offers promotion seekers a way to see multiple geographic specific daily deal website offerings in one place. The site is designed to pull deals from popular sites like Groupon, LivingSocial and smaller D.D. sites and offer one spot to see all the deals across the board. While registration is simple, some are questioning whether the site has too many steps for when buyers are ready to purchase the daily deal.

Users who register with DealGator have the option to receive category specific daily emails which show case deals personalized to user request. In addition, deal seekers can browse from a number of categories on the site which include: activities, events, fitness, spas and restaurants.

DealGators most appealing feature is the ability to see discount offers from all sorts of daily deal sites, even those that most are not familiar with. While it is impossible for someone to check every single site for every single deal, DealGator serves as an answer to that problem by allowing users to see a variety of sites in one place. While many deals sites are similar to Groupon anyways, it’s a handy tool to make a single easy to browse website rather than spend hours hunting for a discount.

With that being said, it is easy to find deals on this site but in order to redeem them you have to be registered with the original site the deal is on. If you see an offer on DealGator that is originally offered on Groupon, DealGator will direct you to Groupon via a click and you will have to start from the beginning with the purchase process. Hopefully, as DealGator gains a following, the site will implement a universal log in and payment option that will help with the lengthy process.
