GrabOne first offered $4 tickets to Event Cinemas in Auckland in July 2010 and, just ten months later, it sold its one millionth coupon (a 61 percent off Canvas Print in the Northland region, in case you were wondering). To celebrate this milestone, it’s giving away two $50 GrabOne credits to lucky, bargain loving StopPressers. Like social media platforms, daily deals sites all seem to require a strange, suitably catchy name. So all you have to do is come up with a ridiculous name for a fictional new entrant to this crowded market and all your discount dreams could come true. Extra credit given for ridiculous slogans.
Since it kicked off, GrabOne has expanded to another 12 regions across New Zealand, started two new verticals websites (GrabOneBottle and GrabOneTee), grown one of the largest Facebook pages in the country and launched in eight cities in Australia. It is also launching in Ireland on 9 May.
