Now you can get all the daily deals in one place...

Have you got daily deal fatigue? Signing up for sites such as Groupon, Living Social or Wowcher can seem like a good idea, until you get a barrage of offers in your in-box for teeth-whitening or Brazilian-waxings. But you don’t want to unsubscribe in case you miss out on a great bargain. A new website could have the answer: Bownty rounds up all the daily deals – from all the different deal companies – and puts them in one place which you can either look at on an email newsletter or on its website.
