Gambit is entering the daily deal market with a program we think will work well for both merchants and our readers. We've formed a partnership with a company called Forkfly, and it operates a little differently (and, we think, much better) than many of the daily deal setups.
There's no minimum for anyone to buy (nor minimum for any merchant to meet), and you don't even need to open an account to use Forkfly (unless you want to). If you have an iPhone or Android smartphone, just download the Forkfly app and start it up. If you don't have a smartphone, just go to www.forkfly.com and go from there.
On your phone, Forkfly uses GPS technology to let you know where the bargains are near you. There might be a 2-for-1 tapas deal on the next block, or a $1 happy hour a few streets away. Zoom out and see what else is going on around town. There are discounts to events and attractions, as well as valuable coupons for shopping. All the deals are free, and you can pick what you want, when you want it, with no pressure or pre-payment.
Enjoy Gambit and Forkfly — and let us know what you think.
