Saving Tip # 8 - Of Coupons, Trips, Extras and Savings - List of 100 Group Buying Sites in the Philippines - UPDATED 6/13/14

Coupon sites became a very big deal in the Philippines last 2010. I want to share a few tips to maximize our savings through the 100 (and counting) coupon sites available in our market today.

Group buying sites are there to leverage on the power of word-of-mouth through huge savings and bulk-buying. It will be such a waste if we, as consumers, don't make the most out of their crazy deals and antics just to get more people to support their sites. Continue reading for Girl Kuripot's list of Philippine Coupon Sites.

Here are examples of coupon sites or what we call group buying sites in the Philippines with links by alphabetical order that I compiled (some have no-cash out offers like buy at Zero Pesos or contests available today so do check them one by one, others have no deals today and you can check out after a month or two if they are still active):

I am happy for these coupon sites because they give us opportunities for great savings and it's fun to try out new stuff with a lesser cost (parang discounted patikim). I hope we don't get tired of being an excited coupon site consumer. If we must consume, why not spend our money on great deals? 

Did I catch them all? There might be more coupon sites I'm unaware of. Comment below. Feel free to post upcoming deals here (just don't post any friend referral links).


Note: The numbers are increasing so fast. Be careful of your details.

Update 8/2012: They came and invaded the Philippines. Other sites went as fast. I've decided to list down all who dared to make this model work. Other sites are still live but don't have recent deals.

Update 1/2013: Others have invalid domains now and some are still active but have no more deals now (just check at another time in the future again).

Update 6/2014: Of the 98 last year, only about 23 are still alive. There are a couple (A-Deals and SMAC Deals) run by big malls (deals on their merchants so they have more solid clients in my opinion) and some of the pioneers like Deal Grocer are going strong. The number of deals for the majority have decreased significantly - as in just one left. I predict they will have no more deals soon and die a natural death. I also suspect that they are no longer manning the sites and they are just waiting for the domains to expire and do a long deal for their last hurrah. Other sites chose to become online shopping malls instead removing the short time period for deals. Some travel-related ones became travel booking sites. If you like the names, most of the domains are available to buy as most no longer renewed their domains. There's one newcomer that slashes the price depending on the end number of people who grab the item. There's a minimum (grabs) though for the item sale to push through.

  2. nobody can tell if all of them are legit (as in with no other ill-intention). they are all for Filipinos though and they operate as a group buying site. even if you contact them and they tell you they're legit, the choice to trust them lies with you. that's why i ask my readers to be careful with their details.
