ABOUT TUANGO CANADA
If you've ever bought into the group buying craze that began around 2009, you may have heard of sites like Groupon, Living Social and WagJag. Canadians living in Quebec, however, will recognize Tuango as one of the best deal sites offering a variety of discounted products and activities to Quebec residents.
Launched in June 2010, the concept behind Tuango was simple: Give Quebecers the same great savings they would expect using a group buying website, but through a platform that focuses specifically on French Canada and local Quebecois businesses. After its launch, the company saw immediate success, with popularity rising in areas like Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa/Gatineau, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Drummondville and Saguenay.
Today, the ever-expanding business sees about 1 million Quebec users and offers a wide selection of very valuable deals. Some of the discounts typically offered by Tuango include:
- Event tickets
- Restaurant vouchers
- Hotel discounts
- Spa gift certificates
- Discounts on activities such as amusement parks, skydiving, etc.
- Discounts on services like car detailing, oil changes, house cleaning, etc.
- Getaways - both local and international
- Various products including clothing, housewares, furniture, etc.HOW IT WORKS
If you're familiar with the general idea behind group buying websites, Tuango operates using a similar system. Those interested in receiving daily deal updates from the company, can sign up for Tuango emails and specify their area of choice. The company then sends a daily email to its members, outlining today's offers for their area. Once a deal goes active, members have a limited time window in which the deal can be purchased. Most deals also have limited quantities, so once the deal is sold out or the time is up, the deal ends.
As with all "deal of the day" and group buying websites, the deals range both in category and discount. A scroll through the Tuango main page and you'll find a wide range of offerings, including steals like:
- $19 for 3-month unlimited access to fitness center
- $29.95 for a 2-course dinner menu for 2
- 60% off a spa getaway
- 65% off summer comforter set

Before you purchase anything on Tuango.ca, be sure to set up and activate your account. Membership is a big part of the group buying concept, so those without a Tuango profile will not be able to complete a transaction. Once you've created your Tuango account and spotted a Dealguild deal you'd like to apply toward your Tuango purchase, click on the deal. If your deal is marked as a sale, simply navigate to the opened Tuango.ca page and shop as usual - the discount is already applied to the price.
If your deal is marked as an online coupon, copy the revealed coupon code. Once you've got your code, head over to Tuango.ca and select the offer you'd like to purchase. Once you've added an offer to your cart, the cart summary page will open automatically. Review the order and select any options (colour, size, quantity, etc). In the "Order Summary" box on the right-hand side of your screen, click on the link "Promo Code" link and paste your coupon code into the revealed field. Click "Save" to apply your coupon.
