|Description||Online group buy aggregator|
Urban Spoils Corp. aggregates and recommends daily deals on local restaurants, spas, concerts, events, fitness, and luxury brands. The company has been doing business in 79 U.S. cities through its website www.urbanspoils.com since June 2010.
The service capitalizes on a rising trend of social buying where websites make it easier for people to enjoy fun things in their communities. Rather than competing with these websites, Urban Spoils aggregates local deals from over 100 such services, selects their best deals, and presents them in a standardized format.
Urban Spoils allows users to choose how they receive and share deals. Options include visiting the company website at www.urbanspoils.com, signing up for a daily email alert for a specific city, and sharing local deals or â€˜spoilsâ€™ via Facebook, email, or Twitter.
Aggregated local â€˜spoilsâ€™ are currently available in 79 U.S. cities including Akron, Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Birmingham, Boise, Boston, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Cedar Rapids, Charleston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Colorado Springs, Columbus, Dallas, Dayton, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Wayne, Fort Worth, Fresno, Grand Rapids, Greensboro, Hampton, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Knoxville, Las Vegas, Lincoln, Little Rock, Los Angeles, Louisville, Madison, Memphis, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis / St. Paul, Nashville, New Jersey, New Orleans, New York, Oakland, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Orange County, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Providence, Raleigh, Richmond, Riverside, Rochester, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Sioux Falls, Spokane, St. Louis, Tampa, Toledo, Tucson, Tulsa, Vancouver, Washington DC and Wichita.
