Metrodeal is a group buying site which gives you an opportunity to get up to 99% discount to the products and services they are offering. All Metrodeal members think that they save money whenever they buy, but the truth is there are only a few products and services that will give them the discount that they’re after for. I provided 4 tips that you must read before you from Metrodeal.
TIPS BEFORE BUYING FROM METRODEAL
1. Establishment’s location
Do not buy if the establishment’s location is far from where you live. Read carefully the company’s instruction on how to get the product they’re selling. If the seller states that the store will deliver the products, then you have no problem, but if the company states that the buyer is the one who will get the product from their store, well, make sure that you know the location and COMPUTE the transportation fare from your house to their location. The total amount of the product and the transportation fare should still be lower than the same product that you may buy at any store near you.
There are many travel agencies offering discounted tours to Metrodeal members. Are they really discounted? The answer is no. But if you are loyal to Metrodeal and really wanted to buy from them, then you may. Just make sure that before you buy, you should first validate the travel agency’s business permit, go to their website and compare the real price to Metrodeal’s price for the tour, call them if your preferred date is still available, and lastly, search for company’s reviews. Make sure that people are giving them real positive reviews.
3. Fully booked
For tours, dinners and other activities, make sure that you call the company first to ask if your preferred hour is still available for Metrodeal buyers. It is a must to do before you ready your card because companies in Metrodeal have their quota per day and per hour on how many Metrodeal members are they willing to accept. Customers outside Metrodeal are still their priority.
4. Beauty treatment services
Metrodeal is bombarded of beauty treatment services. Most of them are telling that they will give you 99% discount if you purchase their services via Metrodeal. Are they telling the truth? Most likely ‘No’. First, the price they are showing without the promo is not actually the price their real customers are paying for. Go to their site and you’ll see that it is higher than the actual price. Second, services are cut off. Don’t believe in their IPL treatment services that will give you 99% discount because they are only offering the portion of the service.
I once bought an IPL treatment voucher from Metrodeal. I thought I saved money because for only P99 I could get 4 shots of IPL treatment. When I asked the lady who gave me the treatment for the real price of that service, she told me that the IPL treatment was only P899 for 24 shots. So it means that instead of getting 24 shots, they only give their Metrodeal customers 4 shots. It is not actually a discount but the minimum they can give to their customers.
Additional reminder, “Time left to buy” is a big joke. It’s only a trick used by Metrodeal. After a couple of days, weeks, months or years, you can still see the products, services and activities they are offering.
The bottom line is, make sure that you only buy what you needed because you might just end up spending all your savings and not actually saving.
