Where to Find Online Deals for Everything Good in DK
Getting used to living on a student budget can be hard and something that is even harder is learning to find room for fun in your monthly budget. Luckily, there are many shortcuts online that will allow you to keep shopping, dining, drinking and traveling like you used to!
Denmark has plenty of online sites that offer discounts on various activities and goods. You can find anything from trips abroad, to high quality sushi and cheap drinks at hot spot bars – all at discounts too great to big ignored! Most of the sites offer 20-80% discounts on all of their deals. Here is a guide to get you started:
One of the best, and biggest, discount sites in Denmark is www.sweetdeal.dk. As the name implies, they always have a wide range of hot deals spread all over Denmark. They offer restaurant discounts, getaways, fun experiences, spa treatments and shopping, and they always have plenty of deals to browse through.
www.downtown.dk is much like sweetdeal but has less offers. This can sometimes mean that the discounts are greater and thus the site is definitely worth a visit.
If you are already looking forward to your Christmas break you might want to check out www.takeoffer.dk. This site offers getaways at marked down prices. Everything from weekend stays at charming Danish inns, to luxury spa vacations and charter vacations to southern Europe is offered for sale at VERY reasonable prices.
Plenty of more sites exist; www.groupon.dk, www.tipster.dk, www.dealhunter.dk, www.spisibyen.dk etc. It can be quite time consuming to browse them all for exactly what you need. www.deal24.dk collects the best of today’s offers from the most popular sites and can save you a lot of time.
All of the sites offer possibilities for eating out which is a great opportunity to experience Copenhagen and discover new spots outside your local favourites. If eating out is your top priority you should consider getting a MenuCard. The basic menucard offers 10-15% discounts on select restaurant all over Denmark and is free. The VIP card offers 30-50% discounts on a wider range of restaurants. Normally it costs 500 DKK, but their fall campaign allows you to purchase the card for 80 DKK. Check it out at www.menucard.dk.
Using these sites is great for your budget and your mood – and maybe even for making friends. Because all the sites are in Danish you might need to consult a fellow student for translation if Danish isn’t your strongest suit…
