I just found out about a local Richmond, VA area business, Planet Qpon, that is geared towards helping you use collective buying power to receive discounts on products & services, from Richmondmom!
Planet Qpon lets you band together with friends, neighbors and strangers in an online community that uses its collective buying power to negotiate huge discounts on the high-quality products and services you want. You'll enjoy savings of 40% to 90% (yep, it's that big) on some of the hottest things to do and see in Richmond: restaurants, bars, nightclubs, spas, gyms, theaters, cultural and educational events, indoor and outdoor adventures that challenge the body and mind — and much more.
Planet Qpon is Richmond-based, so when we all "Buy Together" we all "Save Together."
When you join, we will e-mail you our "Deal of the Day" — every day, 365 days per year. You decide if you want in. If the required, minimum number of buyers takes the deal, you all get the discount. You'll be up against a deadline. So, if you want to reap the rewards, get your friends to join in. Call them, e-mail them, text or tweet them, or do something really old-fashioned and stop by their home.
Go here to sign up for their FREE daily email featuring their deal of the day. Also - you can follow them on Twitter here and "Like" them on Facebook here.
