Another Startup Weekend Twin Cities Project Ready for Prime Time


Locate My DealAfter months of development, refinement and private beta testing, Startup Weekend Twin Cities offspring  Locate My Deal is ready to launch.

Positioned as ‘the one place to go for all the deals’, the experience is all about immediacy,  proximity and savings.

The free iPhone app/mobile browser (Android soon) aggregates and filters nearby deals, coupons and specials in real time from a variety of places —  Valpak, Money Mailer, Campus Special, Groupon, Living Social, etc., and also pulls in ‘free’ listings from Craigslist. “It’s an ever-growing list of sources,” explains co founder Aaron Kardell. “If there’s a deal that exists, it will be included — and if there’s not a deal listed, then it doesn’t exist.”

Do we really need another web-based deal company? Despite the plethora of choices consumers can choose from,  “Where is there a deal right now in my neighborhood and how do I know that I’m seeing all options” aren’t questions we’ve been able to confidently answer just yet.
