Daily Deals Pt 1: MooLaLa Could Be a Cash Cow

Now that I’ve finished writing my feature on daily deals and flash sale sites, I know more about them than I could ever bore someone long enough to tell all. No one’s willing to indulge me, so I’ll share my wisdom here in this four-part series. (Why four parts? Why not?)

MooLaLa daily deals

MooLaLa.com is the one and only daily deal site that pays cash, instead of credit, for friend referrals. They pay you 2% back for your purchases, 2% of every sale that you refer, and 2% of every sale that they refer. They’ll pay you in milk if you prefer.

Groupon announced this week a new customer loyalty program called Groupon Rewards, which will offer cashback for repeat purchases. They might as well start mockups for the Groupon credit card now.

Plum District is like Groupon and Living Social, but founded by a mom–hence its tagline “For Moms. By Moms.” Or dogs, whatever.

Plum District $20 for $10

Plum DistrictGet $20 worth of massages, spas, jewelry-making classes and Zumba classes for only $10 at daily deal site Plum District. Luckily for you, not all at the same time.

This deal should sell out fast, but Living Social is offering a $20 Amazon.com gift card on sale for $10. Here’s the link–it’s under Washington, D.C. deals but anyone can purchase.

What Groupon and James Franco Have in Common

Like James Franco, deal-of-the-day flash sale sites are everywhere.  As best as I can keep up, here’s the latest sites or ones that are still offering free credit when you signup:
