Munch On Me is a food discount resource that helps internet users find ways to enjoy delicious foods at lower prices. The discounts vary, some requiring a small fee (much like a daily discount website) while others may be completely free. The user can explore a list of foods, each displayed with an image, price, percentage off and how many have already been claimed. An individual page is available for each food discount and includes a longer description of the item as well as information on the company and what inspired them to create the menu item. Any limitations and conditions are also listed along with key ingredients and contact information.
Munch On Me was founded in January of 2011. The website was intended to work like a daily deal site, with a focus on food and discounts (or even free items). The site is still very limited, only covering three cities in California. There are plans to expand into additional large cities in other states, however there is no information provided regarding when the expansions will occur. The website encourages users to explore new foods and businesses and continues to do so on and off the web.
Munch On Me takes elements from daily discount websites and applies them with a flavorful twist. The site manages an enticing collection of menu discounts that give users a low price, some only a few dollars or even free. The site gives local businesses a rare opportunity to attract more customers while internet users can save money by enjoying local menus. The site utilizes countdown timers just like daily deal websites, although most do not require a specific number of purchases to activate.
Munch On Me has a very upbeat, trendy feel thanks to its black background, sleek logo and orange highlights. The site has a humorous personality that makes new users feel right at home as they explore food deals. A friendly, easy going design doesn’t mean Munch On Me deviates from a professional layout. Each page is neatly organized s user can easily learn more about the food, venue and price at a glance.
Newcomers are not required to sign up to view Munch On Me deals. As soon as a new visitor arrives on the site, they are greeted by images of foods and their corresponding discounts. Those who want to create an account can do so by clicking either the blue “Login” button with the Facebook logo or the white “Sign Up” link beside it. The link takes the user to a short form which asks for a full name, email address and password. The user is automatically logged in after submitting the form.
Munch On Me gives all visitors access to all current deals. Anyone can stop by and create an account or browse without signing up. There are no restrictions and the user is not required to make any purchases. No subscription is required, either. Of course users will have to pay any fees associated with the discount deals they take advantage of. This is left entirely up to the user. Users can spend as much or as little as they want.
Munch On Me is a great concept however it is currently very limited. Users in San Francisco, West Los Angeles, Berkeley or East Bay California will get the most use out of the site. In the future, users in New York City, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, San Jose, Portland, Orange County, San Diego and Washington, D.C. will also be able to enjoy the benefits of Munch On Me. Users in any other city will not find much of interest on the site.
