I am a self-confessed voucher addict.  I love things which has great value for money. Hence, I love GROUP BUYING SITES! way before it is not that popular here in  the Philippines. I just admire the idea of selling things at a lower price and making the most out of your hard-earned money. I know I am not stingy but just practical. I'm sure a lot of people nowadays are into it, checking daily deals which suits their budget and lifestye. What's vogue this time are  printed vouchers or coupons from the various  group buying sites. Who does not know its existence?  Everybody loves on sale items, so I bet majority of us heard of it and used  it.

Wikepedia, the free encyclopedia, describes GROUP BUYING as ..."also known as collective buying, offers products and services at significantly reduced prices on the condition that a minimum number of buyers would make the purchase. What a brilliant idea. And for all you know this tradition rooted from Chinese.

So much for the history. Since it is my daily routine to watch out for new deals, every now and then I open my laptop or pad and see to it that I catch the greatest deals ever. I may not always have disposable income for whims and caprices but it has always been my practice to set aside for my food hunts and little adventures :)

Weeks ago I suddenly discovered a certain group buying site which started form Angeles City in Pampanga. I am not choosy as to what brand of site will I buy for as long as I firmly believe I purchased the best deal in town yet! The name of the site is http://www.bigdeals.com.ph.

 It has recently came out in the open and I want you to welcome this site as much as you have welcomed other popular ones.  As of press time it is actually one of the TOP GROUP BUYING SITES with more that 2k hits!  Care to try deals pertaining to Food and Dining? Health and Wellness? and Travel and Events? Why won't you give this site a try. I actually made some purchases from them like the  . . .
