Although now more and more people like shopping online, it doesn't mean that offline stores can't do anything. In fact, many offline stores have succeeded in using digital media to attract consumers' attention. One of the ways they do it is to work with discount offer aggregator services, where consumers can get the latest information about good discounts.

With discount offer aggregators, offline store owners can offer their products or discounts online. This has helped them a lot and they’re also not lagged behind the all-online trend. Here are some apps for you who want to get information about good offers or discounts around you.

1. fave
Fave is an online to offline (O2O) service app that targets various categories, such as dining vouchers at malls to hotels, hotel vouchers, beauty care treatment vouchers, and more. In 2017, fave has acquired Groupon Indonesia, which was also a discount provider app. This makes Fave become one of aggregator services with the most discount option. fave is available free on both Android and iOS. To be able to use it, you must register first. Aside Indonesia, you can also find fave in Malaysia and Singapore.

2. Lakupon
This EMTEK Group discount aggregator provides a variety of information about promotions through digital vouchers. In addition to offering discounts in various restaurants, Lakupon also provides digital vouchers and promos in various tourist places both in Indonesia and abroad, to karaoke vouchers. This free app is available on Android.
