Despite the intense competition in the deal space, it’s hard for users to find all relevant, active deals in one place. Started by two former Google engineers, including the founding Engineer of The Harvard Connection (referenced in the movie, The Social Network), Deel.io was built as the pet project of two guys who loved deals, but hated the hassle. Vijay Boyapati, Deel.io cofounder says, “I found myself browsing Groupon, LivingSocial and other deal sites, then having to open Google maps, then Yelp -- next thing I know I have 5 sites open, just to figure out if this was the deal I wanted. There had to be an easier way.”
With this approach to deals, Deel.io opens up the space to an entirely new customer base – people who want deals but don’t want to put the time and effort into finding them. Deel.io addresses usability in a dramatically different way for the industry. It essentially opens up the space from what was traditionally an impulse buyer market, to an intent-driven user base. With Deel.io you can zoom into your neighborhood, search for ‘sushi’ and find out in seconds what’s available. “I can finally find deals I want without waking up to an inbox of spa offers every morning”, says one of Deel.io’s early users.
It’s no coincidence that Deel.io, which focuses on finding deals easily, was started by two former Googlers. “Search is in our blood”, says co-founder Sanjay Mavinkurve, “and no one was doing this well with deals.” Deel.io’s focus is on building an extraordinary product and making deal discovery easy for users everywhere. It employs the same simplicity and ease of use that Google helped pioneer in search.
The site even incorporates the new wave of vacation and escape packages that are increasingly offered by deal sites. Deel.io Vacations maps out discounted hotel stays around the world so one can quickly see if there are any deals in their target destination. Currently in its beta version, Deel.io is aggressively building out new product features including a personalized email digest, additional categorization and more advanced search criteria.
In a time when the deal space has been taking a hit, Deel.io’s innovation is a win for both users and the deal sites themselves.
