Lifesta: The eBay of Daily Deals

If you can’t resist a bargain, but often find yourself with daily deal remorse, Lifesta may be the perfect place for you to unload that unwanted deal. Just as buyers and sellers come together on eBay, people are using Lifesta to search for bargains and rid themselves of deals they cannot use.

Similar to Qdealz, which was featured at Tech Cocktail Boise in April, as well as to DealsGoRound.com, Lifesta is a marketplace for people to buy and sell deals from sites such as Groupon, Living Social, and more than 300 others.

Purchases on Lifesta are immediate; simply select the deal you want, pay through the site and download the voucher instantly. Every transaction is guaranteed authentic and usable by The Lifesta Deal Guarantee.

Like other secondary deal marketplaces, Lifesta users not only can sell their unwanted deals, but they can also buy the deals other people have decided not to use. So, if you missed out on a bargain, you can get a second chance by browsing Lifesta.

While DealsGoRound.com has apps for Android and iPhone, both Lifesta and Qdealz are currently available only on the web.

As more sites like this pop up, it’s becoming clear that one person’s unwanted daily deal is another’s discounted treasure. Have you found an unbeatable bargain on Lifesta or another daily deal marketplace site? We’d love to hear from you; leave a comment below and share your shopping experience!
