Local Deals, Personalized

The folks at location-based social networking site Loopt have a new kind of deal service made just for you. Its called u-Deals, and instead of waiting for a daily e-mail alert from companies, you get to dream up the ideal discount and make it into a reality.

Here's how it works:  First, you pick the venue you want, then Loopt looks at the likelihood of its acceptance. If Loopt gives the go-ahead, it will contact the business and propose the offer. If the business accepts, the deals a go. Right now the service is only available in the San Francisco Bay Area, but not for long. Check Loopt for the latest news and city expansions.
