We all enjoy a good deal from time to time whether it’s a discount for a meal at our favorite restaurant, a cheaper hotel room or a promotion at a spa nearby.

While there are times when businesses don’t really offer great value for their deals, you can count on these websites and apps to give you a good deal in the industry that they operate in, respectively.

Grabit is an app that provides you with a wide range of food deals whereby dishes are offered at a discounted price. The deals on Grabit have a time frame before they expire. You can look for a deal that you’re interested in which is still available, purchase the e-voucher and then travel to the particular shop and present it to the shop assistant — very straightforward.

At the moment, you can only purchase their e-vouchers either through their iOS or Android app but you could also opt to browse through their deals on their website.
