A new website is live in Charleston that aims to help residents save money at local businesses.
The site DealMobs.com is partnered with the Charleston City Paper and features onelocal discount every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of at least 50-90% on popular restaurants, spas and adventures throughout the city.
The most recent deal offered $20 of food & drink at Cajun Kountry Kitchen Cafe for $10.
DealMobs offers Charleston access to significant discounts through the power of “mob buying," says dealmobs CEO Jim Flannery. “Users of our site buy a deal – effectively, a gift card – directly on our site and then can redeem it at local businesses. But a minimum number of users must sign up for the deal to take place. This entices people to tell their friends about the deal, which not only benefits the consumer but also local businesses, who get mobbed with business.”
DealMobs is expanding in a few cities throughout the Southeast, having launched its first city, Athens, in April and has since expanded to Charleston and Columbia. DealMobs has sold coupons with a savings of more than $70,000 while bringing thousands of new customers to area businesses.
According to Flannery, “We’ve tried to create a win-win for consumers and business owners, who we’re providing a cost-effective way to increase customer bases, and we’re excited to work with a growing number of consumers and business owners in Charleston.”
