If you haven’t heard of it already, Flubit.com is an online marketplace with over 40 million discounted products available. Unlike other “daily deals” sites, it allows you to get a better price on the stuff you actually want – you just give them the Amazon.co.uk link of the item you want to buy and they’ll get it for you cheaper through one of their online retailers. The same exact item, just cheaper! Sounds good, doesn't it?
No one is exactly sure of how they do it, but Flubit.com say their platform “empowers consumers to demand a discount on items they want to buy, and gives online retailers the chance to win more orders whilst protecting their margins.” So it seems like a win-win situation for everyone.
Discounts are on average 10% lower, but can be as much as 15% off depending on the product / category. For example, electronics, toys & games, home & garden, film and TV are all typically good categories for securing a great discount. Although slightly more niche products might not be available at such good discounts – but you never know and it’s always worth trying!
So if you’re shopping on Amazon why not give them a go? Just find the item you want to buy, copy the product web address and paste it into Flubit.com.
First you will get an “instant offer”, typically only a couple of percent cheaper.
If you don’t need to order the item right then and there, you can choose to wait for a couple of hours for a better deal. Just look at the example pictured above, a 9% discount might not sound much but when you have a Lego fan and need to buy the product anyway, any discount you can get is better than nothing as this is the kind of toy that almost never goes on sale.
I'm ready to try Flubit.com next time I need to shop online, how about you?
