How Kris Peterson Created A Successful Daily Deals Company From His Kitchen Counter


Kris Peterson was simultaneously training for the Chicago marathon and buying tons of Groupons. He couldn’t use all the Groupons he was buying and ended up losing the money he spent on them. He thought there had to be a secondary market to sell his unused deals.

But there wasn’t. So Kris created one. Every night after his full time job, he sat at the kitchen counter and coded away at his idea.

The fruit of Kris’ labor is DealsGoRound.com, a site where people can sell their unused daily deals from sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, YouSwoop, and many more.

What a great idea! What has been the response from the daily deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial? I haven't read all of the fine print for those sits but I would guess that their deals are non-transferrable? I guess not if DealsGoRound.com is still in business. This is one of those "why didn't I think of that?" ideas.
