GroopBuy, Get Your Deal On.

Like any good Jew, especially one living in Israel, I love deals. Deals complete me. A dress that was on sale seems more valuable somehow. Going to the shuk and bargaining over fruit leaves it tasting better than ever. And discovering a new website that brings the promise of amazing deals day after day, well friends, that is priceless.

May I introduce you to GroopBuy where deals are daily and that makes mamma happy. The concept is simple: everyday there is a new deal and if you like it you sign up and then you make sure your friends do too. If enough people sign up for the deal then we all get to enjoy the benefits. And again mamma is happy.

The deals can be for restaurants to dance classes and today it was for a dentist (not a bad idea since my teeth have been feeling sore lately, and I was just ignoring it but now I don’t have to). The deals come to your inbox so I imagine that this is what it feels like when the Christians say, “Everyday feels like Christmas.”

The website is super user-friendly and in English, in fact they even had Anglos in mind when creating the site according to the ‘about us’ section: GroopBuy is a response to the frustrations Anglos may experience when integrating into a new country. This cuts the Israeli learning curve right in half—now we just have to figure out a website that makes the banks and bureaucracies open for more than two hours a day and we might just see a spike in Aliyah.

Who is excited to get her deal on? It’s me and I hope it’s you because it only works if we all join in. And remember mamma wants to be happy.

    I never knew about Groupon, and all the while my husband had been a member for a long time. He just didn’t think to tell me!
    Glad to hear there is such a coupon deal site in Israel, too, where three of my kids live, and where (G-d willing) we will live in the future (yes, mama needs to be happy…!)

    Beware! Groopbuy may be a scam! I bought a coupon from Groopbuy and the
    coupon was not accepted by the vendor (the vendor claims it doesn’t work
    with Groopbuy). Groopbuy does not have a phone number listed (!),
    Groopbuy is refusing to refund my money and is ignoring my emails. I’m
    still trying to contact Groopbuy with very little success. I’d recommend
    you stay away from Groopbuy if you value your money!

    Yes it is strange. But it does seem that the site is down. We don’t know why and we hope to see it up and running in the future.
