Greeting to those bound for Australia & New Zealand!!! My boyfriend & I will be traveling "down under" from late December - mid January and I started researching things to do in the various ports and came upon some helpful sites (one site led to another site and another...) that offer a new product or service (some won't really apply to tourists) each day...kind of a "Deal a Day" type website. Anyway, I am including a list of them (and the approximate times a new deal comes available) in hopes that others will find it as beneficial as we have. So far, we have booked a jet boat ride and a "tall ships" dinner cruise in Sydney and a day pass plus mud bath at Hells Gate in Rotorua...all for about half off!!! Perfect if you are organizing tours on your own or with others on the CC boards. Be sure to check out the variety of cities each link provides, as most have "Daily Deals" in more than one city. Also, make sure the "coupon" will be valid on the dates you will be visiting each particular city. You just have to play around on each site. In no particular order...

http://www.crowdmass.com.au/ This appears to be a "Deal a Week" Coupon in Melbourne.

http://www.grabone.co.nz/home Updates at 5:00 am Pacific Daylight Time. This one is one of my favorites for New Zealand - lots of cities! We bought our passes for Hells Gate here.

http://www.groupy.co.nz/ Updates at 5:00 am Pacific Daylight Time. Doesn't have too many cities, yet.

http://socialbuy.co.nz/Auckland Updates at 5:00 am Pacific Daylight Time. Also doesn't have many cities, yet.

http://spreets.com.au/ Updates at 7:00 am Pacific Daylight Time. Just found this one over the weekend...it looks promising.

http://www.ouffer.com/sydney Updates at 11:00 am Pacific Daylight Time. A good site...pretty good amount of cities to choose from.

http://www.dailydo.co.nz/christchurch/index.php Updates at 2:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time. Another good site...several cities to choose from.

http://www.ourdeal.com.au/sydney Updates at 2:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time. This one is good, but you have to have an Australian address to register for the coupons. I inquired if a Buyer from outside the country could still take part in these deals, and the reply I got was: "We'd love you to sign up to receive our deals for your upcoming trip to Australia. At this stage, our registration process is set up in order to deliver to NSW based deals to NSW residents. So I would suggest registering with a generic address such as: 1 Main Road, Sydney, NSW, 2000 if you are planning on visiting Sydney, NSW. That way you will receive daily alerts for this state. We never use your physical address, unless a deal is to be delivered. Hope fully this helps!" I haven't bought anything from them yet, so I can't specifically comment on how it works.

http://www.1-dayout.co.nz/dealLocati...e/Christchurch Updates at 2:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time. Only has a few cities, but always worth checking out.

http://www.scoopon.com.au/sydney Updates at 7:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time. My favorite one for Australia! We have bought 2 deals through them...one for jet boating and the other for a dinner cruise on a "tall ship". Very user friendly.

Happy travels!!!
