Archive for year 2010
So, what have we added today?
- FirstIn have branched out and now have FirstInKids and FirstInHome under their umbrella. They ditched their online eCommerce store earlier in the year to focus solely on daily deals, and have now just broadened their reach a bit with the new websites.
- Have added five new group buying sites Cudo, LetsGetIt, Wowcha, DealEater and GetADeal.
Cudo is backed my Microsoft and based out of Australia, but are not live yet.
LetsGetIt is currently Auckland only, with more regions planned soon
Wowcha is currently Palmerston North only, unknown if there are more regions coming
DealEater is Wellington only, with Auckland and Christchurch coming at some stage.
GetADeal is not live yet (launch is 17th Jan according to their site), and will be deals for Christchurch/Canterbury
- And one other daily deal site EzyDeal which have three daily deals on general merchandise.
- Added Mr Vintage, as they have been doing daily deals on t-shirts for a while now
So a lot of new sites, and a lot more products to see and things to do as well. Just in time for Christmas too!
Thoughts/feedback about these (or any other sites?) Feel free to add to our comments section
Grab One have ventured into the alcohol space, and are now offering daily deals on wine and beer from New Zealand and Australia at www.grabonebottle.co.nz. With some great deals on wine, they look set to take on 1-daycellar head on in the one day sale alcohol area. I wonder if it will be as successful as their main venture, GrabOne; time will tell, but I am sure it will work well for them.
We have added Daily Beat to the list of sites today. What is Daily Beat? Every day at 1pm they offer a free daily download of a kiwi music track. Simple! What a great way for new bands to get their music out there for all to listen to.
Have you heard of Pago? Pago is an electronic payment system that enables you to shop online without a credit card. You can also send or receive money by txt or web – and you won’t need to disclose your personal bank details to anyone. All you need is a Pago wallet. What a great idea! Watch a full demo here of how Pago works.
There are a bunch of one day sale sites that now accept Pago, have a look below at them all.

Spreets is the latest group buying site to be launched, starting off with Auckland, and looks like Christchurch and Wellington will be coming soon. They are an Australian company, which have been running since the start of the year there with good success!
They cut off at midnight, so go grab yourself a bargain now!
We also fixed up I Love Deals, as they have not been updating for a little while, and fixed up some of the images on a few other sites too!
More one day sale deals right on this page, so you don’t have to go visiting them all individually.
Facebook provide some fantastic tools to people like us who run Facebook fan pages for their company. One of those tools is demographics on their fans, what country they are in, age, sex and even language. Some interesting stats on our fans:
- As expected most of our fans are in New Zealand, but there is a splattering from right around the world. Hello to our international fans!
- 32% of our fans are female in the 25-34 age bracket, and 26% in the 35-44 age bracket.
- 79% are female. You girls love a good one day sale shopping bargain!
As the fan base has grown from 100 to 500 to now over 800 fans, these numbers have been pretty static right through out.
The language breakdown is also interesting, we have one pirate fan out there, but I am still a bit puzzled on the person who reads everything upside down though, that sounds like no easy feat!

That’s right, Toyco have just launched their online shopping site to the public, and they have some great bargains and toys to be had. Check them out now for a fantastic range of toys, including all the top brands such as Lego, Thomas the tank engine, Barbie and more to come! You can even go into their shop at 7 Wagener Place in St Lukes, Auckland.
Toyco – the seriously fun toy company!
According to the following article on Stuff (http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/4324130/Receivers-appointed-to-Tindall-venture) Hubsta has been placed into receivership. What you probably don’t realise is Hubsta powers the online shopping sites behind Yahoo Xtra, NZ Herald and The Deal. As of today they have no daily deals, just a box saying ‘no daily deals today’. I have a few contacts there, so will send off an email and see what response I get back.
Watch this space!
Had a busy day and really need a drink? Then check out www.1-night.co.nz as they have started doing a daily drink deal for the Wellington region. Launch drink is a $10 super jub at Kiwi Pub, which are normally $17. 1-Night have been around for a while doing ticketing and a pre-paid card for resturants and other entertainment venues, and have just ventured into the one day sale space. They will be launching in Auckland soon as well, so keep an eye on things!
