There are plenty of places to turn to when you want to shed your old Groupons. Sites like DealsGoRound and CoupRecoup have become the Black Market of the daily deals industry, giving consumers a place to profit off their less impressive purchases. But a new site is spinning that into a holiday appropriate idea that puts Grouponicus to shame.
Presentify.me takes your unused Groupons and LivingSocial discounts and pretties them up into gift cards for friends and family. While you can certainly pawn these off without the presentation, that makes it more like an afterthought than a present. But Presentify.me, which is still in beta, creates gorgeous and more formal cards that will keep you from simply printing a coupon out and stuffing it in an envelope.
Daily deal sites are trying to get on the holiday shopping bandwagon with discounted products and prompts telling users to buy experiences as gifts. And while there are plenty out there that would make any recipient happy, the presentation definitely leaves something to be desired. At the moment, Presentify.me is free and working on adding to its current repertoire of three designs. But given the larger discount-a-day sites out there that are trying to make a bid for gifting dollars, and Presentify.me’s initial buzz, we wouldn’t be terribly surprised if the likes of Groupon and LivingSocial were looking into integrating a service like this.
