Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 14, 2010
Urban Spoils Corp., a company that aggregates and recommends daily deals on great local restaurants, spas, concerts, events, fitness, and luxury brands, today announced the launch of their Beta website in more than 60 U.S. cities through http://www.urbanspoils.com.
The innovative new service capitalizes on a rising trend of social buying where websites like Groupon, Gilt, Living Social, Tippr, BuyWithMe, SocialBuy, Adility, Ideeli, RueLaLa, Bloomspot, PriceBunch, Scoop St, and HomeRun make it easier for people to enjoy fun things in their communities. Rather than competing with these websites, Urban Spoils aggregates local deals from more than 100 such services, selects the best deals, and presents them in a very easy to understand format.
“Urban Spoils makes it easy for adventurous urbanites to discover unique local experiences that are perfect for them, their families and friends at ridiculously discounted prices,” says Raj Bharti, co-founder of Urban Spoils. ”In the post-recession era that we are living in, consumers are looking for value more than ever before and group buying is here to stay.”
Urban Spoils allows users to choose how they receive and share deals. Options include visiting the company website at http://www.urbanspoils.com, signing up for a daily email alert for a specific city, and sharing local deals or “‘spoils” via Facebook and Twitter.

(YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT). The startup has 20 team members, who take pride in calling themselves either Boilers or Spoilers.
