Did you pinch yourself because you bought something on MRP only to realize later that there was a sale going on at the other shop, where you could have saved your hard earned money? You need not worry anymore about missing any sale going on in the city. After the resounding success of their group-buying portal, mydala.com, India’s first and largest social commerce portal offering city-specific and pan-India deep-discount deals, has now introduced India’s first and largest deal directory, mydala Deal Hunter, which lets you search for and track ongoing sale offers in your neighborhood.

Sharing more details on the launch, Anisha Singh, Founder and CEO of mydala.com says, “Deal Hunter is the outcome of more than 6 months of our research and efforts. As a unique concept, Deal Hunter offers a much-needed solution to a retail void that is a win-win for merchants as well as buyers, just like mydala. No more scouring your local paper, or sorting through your SMS’s/email inbox. Deal Hunter does all the legwork for consumers. While buyers need not worry about missing a sale, merchants can ensure that more and more people are about to take advantage for the offer period, thereby increasing their sale volumes.”
“With an intuitive and user-friendly format, Deal Hunter uses proprietary software to aggregate sale deals, and also leverages user generated content (UGC), to ensure that the listed deals are most current at any given time. With a clear focus on continuous innovation, we are constantly trying to make shopping a friendly and fun experience for all our customers through our innovative approach,” adds Anisha.
