Based out of Brooklyn, New York, LifeBooker gives users a new way to save money and schedule appointments for beauty services. Founders Andrew Unger and Dana Reichman wanted to create a locally focused resource that helped New Yorkers not only save money, but share their opinions to help others make a good decision about where they go for health and beauty services. The result was LifeBooker which highlighted many premiere businesses located in Manhattan. The site has since expanded to include many other popular United States cities.
LifeBooker offers a few unique services. Users can find discounts on the site and apply them to their next health or beauty service. While many website would stop there, LifeBooker continues by making it easy with online booking. User can take their experience and use it to save even more money by providing a review of the business for other users to check out. After reviewing the business, the user will receive additional discounts for return visits. LifeBooker stands out because it looks at all aspects of hiring a health or beauty service, from saving money to scheduling and reviewing.
The LifeBooker website compliments the service it provides to users. The homepage features chic images and a modern design that compliments the purpose of LifeBooker. The necessary tools and navigation links are easy to find on the homepage and users can quickly browse for a specific company and check out user reviews. Despite the unique design, the site is still very simple to use and includes no clutter or obnoxious advertisements.
Visitors can register for LifeBooker by filling out the small registration form found at the right hand side of the homepage, under the “Join for Free” header. LifeBooker keeps it simple asking for only basic information, such as an email address, password, and city of residence. After clicking the gold “Enter Site” button, the user is advised if the city they have chosen has not yet been added. After submitting the information, the user can login and begin browsing the many discounts available through LifeBooker.
The amount spend on LifeBooker depends entirely on the user. Creating an account is completely free and there are no premium paid account options or subscription fees. However, to take advantage of discounts, users must purchase their special deals before they take advantage of them. The site states the total amount required, most of which include discounts of 50% or more off the regular price of the service.
LifeBooker is still rather limited in scope because some cities are not yet available. Anyone living in cities that are covered by LifeBooker can save a lot of money on high end beauty services. These are primarily focused on a female audience, although there are also health related savings available to LifeBooker users.
