Alright, residents and guests! It’s time to MeetUp, Groupon, and get out into the world around you. What we mean to say is – there are plenty of smartphone apps and websites that can take your social life in the south to the next level. Whether you’re a new TriBridge resident or are ready to meet some like-minded people, we have a list of social networks for you to check out. They’re all aimed at keeping you abreast of what’s going on in your community, and helping you to save money too!
ScoutMob - This is a dream app for those living and working in cities like Atlanta, Dallas, Nashville, and more! ScoutMob was designed to provide local coupons and deals for users in major cities right on their smartphones. You can take advantage of a deal online and don’t have to redeem it until you’re at the venue. Best of all, ScoutMob specifically selects independent makers and businesses so you are truly helping your local community. It’s not just about goods either. The Scoutmob app also alerts you of upcoming events in your city that you may have missed. One TriBridge team members found out about a showing of the Season 4 premier of “The Walking Dead” via ScoutMob and headed there with her Zombie-costumed friend!
MeetUp – The MeetUp app and website are good for residents of all ages but we especially recommend it for our newer residents. It’s a great way to meet people who share the same interests and passions as you. Are you a Durham resident looking for a Moms Club? Searching for fellow bibliophiles in Nashville? Whether you are looking to network, party, work out or anything in-between, MeetUp will help you dial in. As Mark Anderson states, MeetUp encourages real face-to-face encounters, rather than the screen-to-screen networking we’re getting used to. Because let’s face it, that’s no fun at all!
Groupon - Like to try new things, but don’t like spending all that money? If that’s the case, it’s time to try Groupon. Groupon is a crowdsourcing app that lets you and many others save money on goods and services. Once you sign up with Groupon, you will receive a “deal of the day” from companies, both locally and nationally, for restaurants, events, vacation packages, special promotions, and more!
