    This iconographic is a great way to look at deal sites. My partner and I saw that deal sites are taking off and thought the next step would be to find a way for people to easily and safely trade deal vouchers, so we created, a site that lets you buy daily deals you missed and sell deals you won’t use. Lifesta facilitates the entire transaction and guarantees the purchase. We think establishing this trust between buyers and sellers gives daily deal vouchers a marketable value that they didn’t have before and will contribute to the overall market growth.

    The daily deal market has exploded. Obviously groupon and living social are the top companies in the industry but there are new sites popping up everyday. aggregates all of the group buying offers and gives users features to sort through the best ones!
