Spurr is a deal website that focuses on giving you the best experiences in your city for a fraction of the price. Their aim is to give you new, exciting, and enjoyable experiences through bars, tours, hotel stays, and more, all within your budget.
How does Spurr work?
Spurr helps you discover great shops and establishments within your city, and gives you a huge discount for them. But how are you able to get these discounts from Spurr? Here’s how:
- Subscribe as a member of Spurr. Joining is absolutely free, and you get emails on the latest deals.
- When you like a deal you see, click on the “Buy Now” button.
- You will enter your name and payment details.
- Spread the word of the deal!
- Wait for other people to sign up.
- If enough people sign up, the deal becomes “active”, and your credit card will be charged.
- A voucher will be mailed to you within 24 hours.
- Print out the voucher and present it to the establishment to get the discount.
Wait, wait… what do you mean with “the deal becomes ‘active’?”
Spurr negotiates with local establishments before local establishments can give Spurr a discounted rate on their service. Spurr will promise a required minimum number of customers to the establishment, and in exchange, the establishment will give Spurr the discount.
That is why when Spurr puts up a new deal, the deal is currently inactive, i.e.: the minimum required number of buyers for the deal hasn’t been reached yet.
For example, Coffee place ABC agrees to give 90% off their premium coffee blend if Spurr can bring at least 100 people to buy that particular blend. Spurr posts up a voucher announcing the 90% off Coffee place ABC’s coffee blend.
Two things can happen here: If 100 or more people buy the deal, then the deal becomes “active” because the required participants has been reached. However, if the deal gets 99 buyers or less, the deal is canceled.
What do I do when there’s a canceled deal?
Aside from feeling sad that you haven’t gotten the deal you wanted? Nothing, really. Your credit card isn’t charged, and the deal is simply closed on the website.
But I don’t want the deal to be canceled!
The best way to get a deal to become “active” is to help it reach the minimum number of required buyers. You can do this through spreading the news on Twitter, Facebook, or other social networks, or even through word of the mouth! Tell all your friends and family about this great deal and encourage them to buy.
