Get Plugged Into Great Deals at Plugdeals.ph

I'm a HUGE fan of group buying sites which are proving to be a breath of fresh air for shoppers looking for some fun or the odd must-have, or to simply see what special deals they can pick up online. If it's possible, I am now an even bigger fan of deals with a setback in precisely the right way. No crazy deals or anything, it's just fast and convenient.

Well for those who doesn't know what group buying sites are, you've prolly been living under a rock. So just in case you decided to crawl from underneath the rock you've been living under, here's what you missed.

Group Buying Sites are websites that offer heavily discounted products & services from a retailer or service provider. It can go from 30% discount to as much as 99% discount! Seriously.

These group buying sites have been popping up like mushrooms over the past few years, and have now become a highly competitive way to shop for anything from spa treatments to holidays, flight tickets, gym memberships, hair treatments, restaurant meals, wine, kitchenware, gadgets and all the other cool products you can think of.

Lucky me 'cause I got invited for the media launch of a new group buying site called Plugdeals.ph. It is a product of BHMBPO, INc., a duly registered Multimedia Company, and a member of the PEMCOR Group of Companies.


Plugdeals.ph is an online coupon site where buyers can get great products and services at great discounts! They're simply plugging you to the best deals in town!

This is how Plugdeals works.

Register -> Buy -> Print -> Redeem.

Simple huh? You register online, and when you make a purchase or buy the item that you like using your credit card, you get an e-mail that includes a printable voucher to redeem the product or service. You print that and voila! Just redeem and you're good to go.

But wait, there's more.. (that's me with that cheeky grin on an online TV commercial)

What sets it apart from other group busing sites? It's their unique selling point. More than anything, what is more interesting is that the products can be bought in split payments!!! This innovation in the payment scheme sets them apart among the players in the coupon market.

With Plugdeals, the merchants have the option tolet the customers purchase the deal with just 30% of the price; and the remaining 70% will be paid directly to merchants upon redemption of the product or service bought. So it's relatively low asking commission from the merchants.

The great people behind Plugdeals :)
Mr. Edsel Africa, Plugdeals' Business Development Manager, explaining  Plugdeals' unique selling point

They have partial mode of payment which means you can pay partially now, and the voucher is yours. The payment scheme can be one of the following:

30/70%
50/50%
100%

Which means buyers need not shell out the whole amount just to be assured of getting a great deal. Buyer can use the amount for other purposes. Also, merchants need not wait for a long time for the payment remittance from the coupon site because they receive the payment ASAP.How cool is that? :)

With so many group buying sites out there, and more popping up, the choices of what you can buy are growing. And it has become quite a laborious task to keep track of them. Yet seasoned deal seekers know where to hunt down the best deals and what is the best group buying site to choose.

In the past, I’ve bought a haircut, a spa treatment for two, a Yellow Cab group meal, a staycation at Discovery Suites, gym play for kids and a lot more. I got really crazy and addicted with group buying sites until I had a really bad experience with one of those buying sites. I got a deal of a cute Angry Birds cake which turned out to be a disaster. From the time where I started reserving the cake until the time I picked it up, believe me, it was a BIG, big disappointment. I had a hard time contacting the cake company and got no reply in weeks. I followed up with the group buying site where I got the deal and after a few weeks, I was able to get it, only to find out that the cake was so effin different from the picture posted online. Angry birds just turned out to be the ugliest looking birds I've ever seen. LOL Soooo there... remember guys, pictures can be deceiving. Lesson learned so I am now more cautious as ever.

Actually, the best group buying site today isn’t necessarily the biggest group buying site out there. So you really have to choose wisely. Be juicy, I mean, choosy pala. :)



With Plugdeals.ph's new payment scheme and good deals, I bet they'll be one of the top players today. To avoid having bad feedbacks and negative experiences from customers, as well as to ensure customer satisfaction, Plugdeals.ph collaborates with merchants “to come up with a deal that makes sense”. They also make sure that the quality is exactly the same as what is posted online and as what is written in their contract. They also have a customer service hotline so they're just a quick phone call away. (632)-584-1099

So for my dear voucher and coupon loving friends, make sure you choose the deals wisely. Also, don't forget to check Pludeals.ph website HERE so you don't miss out on getting the best deals at the most amazing prices. There you will find all of their latest deals and offers.
