Do you like getting good deals? Of course, everyone loves getting something they want or need at a discounted price. Your iOS device, besides being a useful and cool piece of hardware, can actually be a gateway to some really awesome deals right in your local area. You spent enough money on that iPad, you might as well use it to save some money on some awesome stuff.
Living Social is the one app deal seekers need to have on their iOS device. It allows you to find all of the best deals in your area in just seconds. Whether you are looking to save some money at a nice restaurant, go on a trip, or get a massage at a discounted price, Living Social has you covered.
Using The App
Using Living Social is incredibly easy. To take full advantage of its features, you will need to create a free account. You can do this using your Facebook account, or you can manually enter your information and create one that way. Either way, if you want to be able to take advantage of the deals contained within Living Social, you will need an account.
The app is divided into sections, which makes it easy to navigate. To get access to the different sections, click the button at the top left of the screen. This will open a pop-out menu that features each of the applications sections. You will see today’s deals, escapes, my vouchers, and settings.
The first section is called today’s deals. This is where you will see all of the available deals in your local area (provided you gave the app access to your location). Where you live will determine how many deals you see in your area. Obviously, larger cities will have more deals available, and smaller communities will see less.
In today’s deals, you can click the “More Cities” button to find deals in any of the areas supported by Living Social. If you plan on travelling, you will want to hit this section to get a feel for what kind of deals you can find at your destination.
When you find a deal you like, simply tap it, and you will be taken to the page where you can purchase it. This page will let you know all the important information about the deal, including the fine print that tells you about the limitations and restrictions for the deal, if there is any. You can also use this page to share a deal, and if three friends buy it, yours will be free!
The next section of the app is called escapes. This is where you will come to find deals and discounts on all kinds of trips. There are deals from everything ranging from ski trips to stays at casinos. If there is a vacation package you are looking for, you are likely to find one available at a discounted rate through the Living Social app.
Just like today’s deals, you can click any of the trips to get more information about it. You can book your trip directly within the application, so the process could not be made much easier.
The my vouchers section is where you will come to see the deals you have purchased. Of course, if you have not bought anything, this section will be blank. This spot in Living Social makes it easy to find your deals, so you can pull them up when you arrive at the location.
The settings section is, as you can probably guess, where you will come to tweak the application to your liking. You can link the app with social media, store your credit cards, and more. You can also click “Help” if you have questions about using the application.
If you want to use your iPad as a way to save money, look no further than Living Social. The iPad app has a fantastic interface, and it is most definitely an application worth checking out, especially if you love saving money. Of course, you can also use it on the web, on your iPhone, and your Android device.
