    Iowa's first "Groupon": $10 gets you $25 at Royal Mile

    Des Moines Deal of the Day | Local Daily Deals from Groupon

    Well, Des Moines has joined the list of other major cities on Groupon a localized "deal of the day" website that features area businesses.

    I love Royal Mile. I'm excited about a good deal on Groupon. I thought I'd share that you can purchase up to two of these $10 vouchers.

    Got my two!

    Really hope this catches on in the Metro. My coworkers from out of state were giddy when they finally saw Des Moines on there today. Apparently it's a big deal.

    Re: Iowa's first "Groupon": $10 gets you $25 at Royal Mile

    How does one know that the local business will even honor the deal? What if I buy this deal and get there and Royal Mile tells me to pound sand?

    Otherwise, it seems like a cool website. I guess I just would like to see some local establishment endorsement proof.

    I guess I'll find out how well they work. I love Royal Mile.

    Hey Broodwich, you should have posted your "Friend Referal" link. You could have gotten $10 from me. Didn't know until after I signed up. Sorry.

    Nice find. Don't live in DSM but go there enough to make this more than worth it.

    Love the Royal Mile! Thanks for the tip! Looks like there's about 3 hours left to purchase the deal.

    Groupon has done a great job promoting their product/service. Word of mouth from city to city seems to get more and more business involved with them than some of the other similar websites.

    I LOVE eating at Royal Mile. I bought two of these today as well. There is also a DSM Groupon person on twitter FYI.

    I've done it in Dallas for about 6 months, but now everyone knows about it and if you buy a deal, the place is booked for months.
