Relevant Sponsor Profile: "What's the Deal?" Local Deal Site

I am very excited to introduce to you a partial sponsor of my trip to the Relevant Conference: a great DC-area deal site called What's the Deal

What's the Deal is a daily deal/group coupon site, but the difference is that What's the Deal is DC-based and features only local DC metro area deals.  They offer at least five new fun deals per week, including at least one live event (usually happy hours around the city or in NOVA).  They also just started a weekly list of free happy hour events, which you can choose to receive by email when you sign up for their regular deal emails.

It strikes me from following their deals that they often go beyond just mainstream events and destinations, so the site would be a great way to find new places to go in the metro area.  I got several ideas for places for my husband to take the guys for a bachelor party he is planning for a friend.  Some recent deals (that are still available) included everything from 50% off at any location of Firehook Bakery to 50% off wine packages from First Vine to 40% off tickets to a National Geographic Live Musical.

I like the fact that the deals on the site are usually available for one to two weeks, as opposed to just one day.  That would give you time to check your weekend schedule or to make plans with a friend before buying.

I also like that the website is attractive and easy to navigate, and it has plenty of information to make you feel comfortable purchasing from them.  It even shows pictures of the team behind the site.  And don't miss their rap video here - it's hilarious!

What's the Deal also has an exclusive partnership with Washingtonian Magazine, and all of their business partners get featured on washingtonian.com

What's the Deal is offering Frugally Blonde readers an exclusive coupon code for trying out their site!  Simply use code FRUGALB when placing your first order or click this link to receive $3 in credit towards your first deal!

And be sure to sign up for their daily emails, so that you get the newest great deal every day!

Disclaimer: What's the Deal is a partial sponsor of my trip to Relevant, and as such I was compensated for writing this post.  However, I accepted their sponsorship because I thought that their site would be of real interest to my local readers.  The opinions in this post are honest and my own.
