A friend of a friend of mine recently launched a new site, Yipit, a deal machine that recommends New York City sample sales, restaurant and bar deals, etc. all based on your location and personal preferences. It takes 12 seconds to join so check it out-- www.yipit.com. It syncs with your Foursquare account to help you score deals right around you and wherever you go!
They have already started receiving some great press from the New York Times, Racked and Eater NY. Try it out and let me know what you think!
