Sometimes deals are impossible to take at face value—particularly when everyone seems to be offering them–and I’ve been trying to find a catch to YoloDeals since signing up for them TK-long ago. A recent set of coupons offered $40 worth of dining at The Summit for $20, $80 at Abella Massage and Skin Care Studio for $30, and a cut, style, and blowout for $30 from Solera Salon.
But it turns out there’s no bait-and-switch with YoloDeals. The advertised discount is the one you get. The Golden-based business sends daily coupons that typically offer 50 to 90 percent off area goods and services. All featured businesses are local, and they rotate. (I haven’t seen the same business twice yet.)
Unlike some e-mail offers, the deals aren’t contingent on how many people buy in. As soon as your credit card is accepted, you print a certificate that can be used as early as that day.
As an added bonus, YoloDeals donates to various charities. If enough people buy a certain deal, Yolo gives five percent of its profits to the selected charity.
