Most of you know about Groupon and Living Social, but what about Rush49?! My guess is probably not…not yet at least.
We’re a Los Angeles based start-up launching our website this month. Your search for what to do, where to eat and where to play in LA just go a whole lot easier.
Rush49 has painstakingly curated the best in the city for you to experience and discover. We’re proud to deliver exclusive deals from the places right to your smartphone and inbox so that your city becomes your adventure whenever you feel like it.
You are probably asking yourself, what makes Rush49 unique?
Well, for one, we love our mobile app. It’s so easy to use and intuitive, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. Our app learns about you as you use it. That might sound straight out of a George Orwell novel, but bear with us. With the variables of location, purchased deals, personal preferences and interests, your Rush49 mobile companion learns about you, so we can offer deals that are timely, and above all, relevant.
Bottom line, we can offer you something our competitors can’t, deals that are tailored to YOUR preferences!
Rush49 also has a competitive edge when it comes to serving the local businesses we feature. The expectations from other deal sites is that merchants will offer 50 % discounts on their services, in addition to a 50% revenue split with the daily deal site. We’re talking big losses at the merchants expense. Rush49 is doing things differently and changing up the deals space by creating value for both customers and businesses. We achieve this by halving commission splits and revenue share percentages.
Our generous commission splits stem from the founder, Kumar, who comes from a small business background. Kumar, having launched successful eateries and grocers near USC, learned firsthand how slim the profit margins are for restaurants, and how partnering with a daily deal sight can actually hurt business. Thinking that there must be a better way, Kumar founded Rush49 in hopes of creating just that- great value for customers looking to experience urban adventures in and around LA, and sustainable discount opportunities for businesses looking to expand.
