Why would anyone buy anything for full price anymore? With all the new discount sites online these days, you can get everything on the cheap, from a barbeque meal to an entire vacation. Here’s a few of the latest and greatest local sites that will give you access to deals all over the city at a discount.
Swoop in on Local Web Deals
Chi-focused web site
Gilt Group Chicago: The recently launched local version of the national members-only discount fashion site has expanded its empire with Gilt City; exclusive deals on restaurants, entertainment and more. We spied 50 percent off luxury sports bar packages at Bull & Bear among other great deals.
Get Local Chicago: This brand-spanking-new site takes local food products (think Chicago’s own Vosges chocolate) and mixes them together with other local products to churn them out into the perfect gift boxes. We’re loving this new category of discounts.
Chitown Deals: Stakes its claim in the market of discount sites by offering at least 50 percent off sweet deals throughout the city. You’ll find the same categories here -- spa, restaurants, shopping -- but the catch here is that a minimum amount of people need to buy the voucher to get the deal. If enough people make the purchase, the deal is yours and you can download your certificate immediately.
Daily Deals Chicago: Every morning get a daily deal delivered right to your inbox from Chi-town bar deals to concerts and restaurants. This one is similar to a Groupon, but we’re loving the old school graphics they use.
