Deals – The Daily Deals Market in Ireland in 2017

Daily deals sites have been hugely popular in Ireland ever since the recession killed the Celtic Tiger. Popular offer sites include VoucherPages, Pigsback, Groupon and LivingSocial selling hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, goods and local services. However, there has been a lot of changes with the players in the Irish discount market in this country, so we thought we would let you know the state of play in 2017. Collaborations, takeovers and closures have seen some expanding, while other sites have closed for business.

The Deal Websites

VoucherPages, obviously, are top of the list and still going strong as Ireland’s favourite offers marketplace. With discount codes for retailers and brands, along with exclusive coupons, product offers and featuring vouchers from the best deal sites, with the site is growing year-on-year.

Pigsback have acquired a number of other similar Irish websites in recent months. The parent company, Empathy Marketing, have recently purchased Dealrush.ie, Escapes.ie, JustGolf.ie and Pamper.ie, which they have added to their own existing stable of Pigsback.com, Luxurybreaks.ie and Thediningroom.ie, so don’t be surprised if you see similar offerings across some of those platforms.

Groupon are the still the top dog when it comes to the global deals industry. Groupon Ireland have a large number of users in the major cities of Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick. After going public and having some tough years trying to achieve profitability with major worldwide expansion through corporate acquisitions and significant customer acquisition marketing spend, Groupon have exited a number of countries around the world last year. However, they are still popular in Ireland which looks set to continue with the opening of a European office in Dublin, which includes functions such as marketing.

GrabOne was one of the leading daily deals websites in Ireland. It was run by Independent News and Media, one of Ireland’s largest newspaper and media groups. GrabOne decided to close for commercial reasons in November 2015.

LivingSocial were the number two player in the global market but a lot of changes have occurred in their global operations. After talk of I.P.O. failed to materialise in recent years, the US arm of the business was sold to their arch competitor Groupon, for what they said was a nominal fee. LivingSocial Ireland and UK are still the second largest player in Ireland. They were acquired by the same company that owns, Wowcher, one of their competitors and a market leader in the United Kingdom.

Rewarding Times are still running weekly specials for The Irish Times readers.

Closing Time

The Irish market has seen of number of site closures over the past few years. SmartSearch, the daily deals platform that predominantly focused on the West Coast of Ireland in Galway, stopped running in 2016.

Some other sites that are no longer operating include:
• Boards deals
• Bite a bargain
• Todaysdeals.ie
• Bundlebee
• Dealbuzz
• The Advertiser deals
• Dolideals.

Voucher Pages Set to Double Users with Launch of New Consumer Focused Coupon Platform

New Vocuher & Coupon Platform to Help Shoppers Save Money as they Shop

Voucher Pages, which provides shoppers with a single location to source the largest choice of discounts for products and services across Ireland, today announced the launch of its new consumer focused coupon platform.

A year on from successfully launching a location-based iPhone App, Voucher Pages’ new coupon platform allows users to view available discounted offers without needing to subscribe or provide any personal details or even purchase online.

Unlike other deal providers, consumers using Voucher Pages’ new platform retrieve a coupon which they then use to purchase in-store or online at a discounted rate, directly from the retailer. This ensures that consumers do not waste money on deals that they do not redeem.

The company is also actively recruiting new businesses across Ireland to ensure the choice of suppliers and savings for its users grows significantly over the coming months.

Voucher Pages, which currently has over 1,000 coupons available each day and thousands of users, plans to double the number of users with its new platform in the next few months.

Voucher Pages, an Enterprise Ireland client company, is located at NovaUCD, the Centre for New Ventures and Entrepreneurs, at University College Dublin. The company was established in 2011 by Ronan Hickey who has extensive commercial experience covering product management, business development and marketing. Ronan graduated from University College Dublin with a BComm and an MBS (Marketing Management) degree.

Speaking at the launch, Ronan Hickey, founder, Voucher Pages said, “Our new and unique coupon platform offers shoppers the most consumer-friendly method to access the largest choice of money-saving discounts in their local area or across Ireland with the purchase only taking place when using a service or buying a product. This is a key advantage for consumers over other deal providers. It ensures money is not wasted on deals that are never redeemed by consumers.”

He added, “We expect to double our user base over the coming months with our new coupon platform.”

He concluded, “With current offers including €10 off your bill at Tesco or 50% off a pizza, thousands of euros worth of savings are available every day for top brands such as Debenhams and M&S, travel providers and local services from beauty salons to dentists.”

The new coupon platform is available via www.voucherpages.ie or by downloading the free Voucher Pages iPhone App.

The company has to date received funding and support from the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Enterprise Board.
