Would you like fries with that idea?
A new idea straight from our community:
The idea is to split combo offers that are offered in restaurants and other retailers among strangers looking to get the best deal possible.
Let’s say a restaurant offers “a free drink with an order of fries,” but you only want fries. Now, we can use technology to find someone else interested in buying a coke to help you both get the best deal possible.
An app could enable consumers to group-buy products at a discount and bring new customers to businesses. This could work for so many other business types: sneaker deals, clothing, glasses, you name it.
The stores could post their combo offers on the website or consumers could do so for them. When customers want to buy something they just go on the app, pick an item, and find a purchasing partner.
The app could manage payments or use a third party, like Venmo, to transact. It could also afford the opportunity to meet new people with similar commercial interests.
This would likely catch on among young people (with little money) before spreading to everyone else.
