I don’t think many of you out there remembers but back in January I wrote briefly about a Vancouver Daily Deal site called Kooperz. At that time, I mentioned that I was doing it for a friend of a friend. I did not realize that the friend of a friend was actually a personal friend of ours!
It is just amazing to learn that our friends are so enterprising that they had been working on this site. The more we learned about them, the more impressed we were. I was curious and wanted to find out more. They are a new kid on the block … on a block of many new kids already. It was only in our discussions that I realize how many daily deal sites there are out there.
Kooperz focuses on putting together daily deals for Vancouver restaurants and other lifestyle pursuits in Vancouver. They do provide an unique differentiator from other similar sites. Kooperz allows their users to suggest and promote deals that they would like to see featured on their site. They will then go out and find those deals for you. So at Kooperz, they put the power of group buying back into the hands of their users — more like what good old traditional group buying is like.
We asked Kooperz for some freebies for chowtimes readers and they readily said yes. So, yeah, here is something for you all!
Kooperz had offer to give 30 free gelatos as a treat to chowtimes readers. The free gelatos are courtesy of Adria Gelato in Burnaby’s Highgate Village on Kingsways and Salisbury Ave. I had never tried Adria’s gelato before but here is something about their gelato:
- Gelato are made in small batches throughout the day with only good and fresh ingredients. No chemicals or fillers are used.
- The recipe follows a secret recipe in Italy. The owner paid through the nose to obtain it.
- The owner is European and is very persistent and determined to make good gelatos.
- Gelato batches are thrown away after a few hours when they are not consumed, to ensure the freshness.
If you would like to try it, all you have to do it simple. Just … leave a comment on this post with your valid email address on the email field. The email will not be shown to everyone and we will not forward the email address to Kooperz or Adria. So it is safe with us. We will close the comments at 11:59 PM on Monday, March 29th and use the emails to draw the lucky 30 participants of the gelato coupons which is worth $6.00. Winners will get the coupons delivered electronically.
