Group buying, social buying, collective online buying, crowd buying – they all mean one thing. It’s getting deals and discounts through the power of bulk buying.
This is not your typical mall sale promotion, but really BIG online discounts with deals going up as high as 90% off the original price.
Seriously, if you’re planning to buy some new clothes, get a new gadget, dine in an expensive restaurant, stay in a five-star hotel, experience that luxurious massage or anything and everything else – it pays to visit these group buying websites first and see if they have the right deal for you.
Below now is a complete list of all the group buying websites available for Pinoys. While most of them cater to the residents of Metro Manila, some do have deals available for those in other parts of the country like Cebu, Davao and others.
So are you ready to do some online deals shopping?
Here they are in alphabetical order:

Please help me keep this list updated. If you know or discover a new group buying website that offers deals for Pinoys; OR if you see that any of the “launching” and “inactive” sites above have become active, then kindly leave a comment below so I can update this post.
Also, I would greatly appreciate it if you can offer your reviews and thoughts about these group buying websites. What product or service did you avail and how much money were you able to save. Thanks in advance for this!
Update 1 – for Everyone:
I also added a status on each of the sites. “Recommended” means that at least two people I know have been able to get their coupons from the site. Also, it is advised that you transact only with sites which are on the recommended list.
Update 2 – for Administrators of these websites:
Do leave a comment below to update me of the status of your business, particularly those who are on the launching phase or have become inactive. Also, if you wish to be among the “Recommended” list, then kindly send me an email.
Update 3 – Explanation of statuses:
Please note that even if a site is tagged as RECOMMENDED, it’s still good practice to double check the deals with the merchants and follow the other group buying safety tips given here.
- At least two people I know have bought deals from the site AND experienced NO problems; and there’s a current deal being offered OR the last deal offered was not more than 2 months ago. OR;
- I’ve been able to correspond with one of their staff and have verified their legitimacy as a business.
- NOTE: Being “Recommended” also means there is currently no one which I personally know who has an issue with the group buying company. However, this post provides no guarantee that you won’t have any problem with their deals. I encourage you to likewise consider other people’s comments below to make your final judgement. Thank you.
- I personally don’t know anyone who successfully bought deals from the website; however there’s a current deal being offered OR the last deal offered was not more than 2 months ago. OR;
- I personally know someone who experienced a problem with the group buying site and the issue has not been resolved from the last update of this post.
- Self-explanatory… but do check them out as they probably have a promo for people who will sign up prior to their official launch.
- Inactive / Closed:
- Last deal they offered was more than 2 months ago.
- Website does not exist anymore or it’s no longer a group buying site.
- Launching sites which have not been updated for the past 3 months.

Update 8 – Separation of Launching and Inactive Sites
The lists of launching; and inactive/closed group buying sites are now separate. Launching sites which did not show any updates in the last 3 months will be moved to the inactive/closed list. Also a major change on STATUS DEFINITIONS, see Update 3 above.
Update 9 – Clean-up of article
Strikethrough texts showing the old status definitions have now been removed for clarify of the whole article.

I’ve decided to reset the polls and just include the list of sites on my Recommended list. I believe this will lead to a more updated and better user experience to all the visitors here. Thank you.
