Select Shopping | Finally! Luxuries you can afford

Do you know that feeling of having too much month at the end of your money? And all you really want is to ask out your cute new colleague or swap the old tatters of your one-piece for a new Bond-babe bikini, before dragging yourself to the beach for that one week a year when the Danish summer allows you to turn your neon-pale skin into a cooked-to-perfection lobster nuance. We are willing to share with you the secret of how you can have as much fun as the rich, but at half the cost.

By simply registering with a number of discount voucher websites, you will get daily offers at huge discounts. It’s a simple premise that has proved to be extremely popular, both with consumers and the companies seeking new customers. You don’t even need to visit the websites. Their daily emails will include various offers, which are normally available until at least midnight, and sometimes for a whole week, and when you find something you like, you simply just click the button saying ‘Køb nu’ and enter your details – it is perfectly safe to purchase from these types of websites. You receive a voucher on your e-mail the same or following day, and if you happen to miss the expiry date, you will be compensated.

 

Downtown

Downtown was one of the first websites to offer people entertainment and food (in the early days it was always sushi!) at half price.
