Like any savings-seeker, you probably get tired of sorting through the many emails that you're receiving. Now that Amazon has entered the local deal space, you can rely on their daily updates for the best deals near you.
The concept is simple: Smart Buying is Buying Together. Companies leverage the power of group buying by running one deeply discounted deal per day that lets you save big bucks around town. They have field agents in each town gathering these deals, and selling your business to local merchants in one lump sum instead of individually. By guaranteeing the volume of customers to the business, they can get amazing deals for you.
Instead of entering the competitive group deal market on their own, Amazon Local will rely on LivingSocial deals as well as partnerships with other local deal sites. They invested $175 million in LivingSocial last year, the top competitor of popular collective buying site Groupon. Now, they're ready to offer loyal Amazon customers valued offers with their own seal of approval.
