What can you use the app for?

You’ve Gotta Get It is an elegant version of the typical social buying site. Users can join the mailing list to receive daily deals. When a deal comes along that they want to participate in, they can choose to purchase it. Each deal requires an up front payment, but this is usually less than half of the retail value of the service or product. The user receives a voucher that can be printed and taken with them when they visit the business to redeem their discount. Many people find sites like You’ve Gotta Get It to be a great way to save money while going out or trying a new restaurant or entertainment venue.
