Savvy shoppers beat the credit crunch by building their own discounts online Thursday 26 June 2008 PDF Print Savvy online shoppers are doing battle with the credit crunch by using a combination of voucher codes and online discounts on a website called www.laughingdeals.com. There are a few of these sites in existence now where the user can search for a deal on items such as TV’s, mobile phones, games consoles, and flights and the site will give them a list of deals available on those items. www.laughingdeals.com differs to this by going a little bit further and giving the user the opportunity to search for special offers with the addition of being able to type in a discount voucher code to make an additional saving. Marcus Rooney, a regular visitor to www.laughingdeals.com talks abut the savings he has made recently: “My last deal was for Bejing 2008 on the PS3 which is available to pre-order. I got it for £31.82 which is a 36% saving off the RRP which is £49.99. I frequently visit www.laughingdeals.com and have saved on average 40% on the items I have bought.” Arif Hanid, MD of laughing deals has been following the trends for popular search items on the website: “Wii Fit is the most popular search at the moment, we’ve had prices as low as £50 whereas the normal price in store and online is currently £69.” Most shoppers prefer unique ways of saving money rather than just having discounted items and voucher codes. Shoppers are getting more discount hungry especially since the credit crunch. No one wants to pay the first price they see but most people don’t have the time to spend searching for deals on the internet. They want a one stop site where the deal can be built to match their requirements. Ends Notes to editor: www.laughingdeals.com is an online discount portal where users can search by product or manufacturer to find the best deal on the item they are looking to purchase. Flights, electrical, games, mobile phones, white goods, clothes amongst other things are available to search for. If you have discount vouchers, these can be used in conjunction with special offers in some cases. Logo, photographs, case study and biogs available.
