Swelle Review: Guilt-free indulgence from Dealcollector.co.uk.
Cupcakes and Champagne is one of the discounted treats to be found at dealcollector.co.uk
In these days of austerity, or what I like to call "make your own fun times", we're heavily relying on discounts to maintain our lifestyle. I've never been particularly extravagant when it comes to spending on entertainment, but it's nice to get out for a lunch or dinner once in a while that doesn't end in pangs of guilt, yet hasn't been ordered from a 'value menu'.
I was already aware of dealcollector.co.uk, but it wasn't until I was asked to review the site that I learned of the wide range of deeply discounted offers that are available in our local areas and abroad. Goods and getaways include cruises to cupcakes to fine French dining, and the site will automatically detect where you're located and deliver the relevant offers.
What I love about dealcollector.co.uk is that it consolidates all of the best online deals into one site - hence the name! - including the ever-popular Groupon and the exclusive members' lifestyle club Keynoir, which handpicks indulgent experiences in London. All Keynoir adventures are first tried and tested, and the list reads like a girls' dream weekend, a mix of fun and culture. Current experiences include The Kings Speech Play at Wyndhams Theatre followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast, and a VIP hair makeover at top London salon Lisa Shepherd, including wine and lunch.
If you're planning a getaway, consult the site for local deals before you go and make the most of your stay while keeping on budget. Visiting East Anglia? At the moment you'll find luxury accommodations in a 17th century English manor house and spa at Groupon Cambridge at 74% off, and that includes a three-course dinner, welcome bottle of chardonnay and breakfast. That's reason enough to visit! (Seriously, the planning for our next family holiday will start with this site - a grand country estate weekend is no longer an elusive fantasy!)
For our friends in Northern Ireland, Deals Belfast has all kinds of deeply discounted offers including an on-location photography workshop, six-bottle case of wine, and magnolia saplings! The deals seem so random which makes it fun to browse.
And I can't neglect to mention the funny and goofy deal descriptions on Groupon, some cheeky copywriter is working hard to make us smile - and it's working.
