Leloca is dramatically different from other online deal sites. The app offers users instant deals at popular restaurants, stores, and spas near their immediate location to be redeemed within 45 minutes. The deals are totally free for the user; it takes just a click to secure the deal and get the barcode, which is then scanned from the phone by the merchant.
Unlike other deal sites, Leloca’s merchants are given complete control of the deal being offered, from what the discount will be, to where it will be offered and control of turning the deal on and off exactly when they want to. Leloca’s innovative deal platform offers instant on-the-go discounts for the modern consumer while delivering immediate profits to local businesses.
For the month of December Leloca has partnered with their restaurants to offer even bigger savings, as a thank you to users. A group of Leloca restaurants are offering $1 dining promotions during the month of December, featuring a selection of great food and drink for just one dollar.
