We've had deals from L.A.-based BlackboardEats hitting our inbox since it launched late last year, and now the site, which provides discounts at restaurants in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco to its subscribers, along with restaurant reviews and other bonuses, has expanded to include an online shopping feature that can be enjoyed by virtually everyone.
BlackboardEats.com “Everywhere” debuted today, which gives anyone with a computer and a credit card the opportunity to save money on food, cookware and supplies purchased online. Those who sign up for the free weekly newsletter are sent a passcode that, if used within 48 hours, will get them a discount on whatever the special of the week may be – whether it's foodstuffs, kitchenware or a reduced price at a culinary travel destination.
Why go the web route? Founder Maggie Nemser, whom we interviewed when the local version of the site got started, tells us, “The Everywhere edition was the next move for us because, like our restaurant version, we saw the need for a one-shop that is accessible and provides value – this time for highly sought-after artisanal foods and top line cookware. And we grew tired waiting for Spiegelau to go sale!”
To kick things off, this week BlackboardEats is offering 30% off coffee and tea purchased online from Intelligensia. Per the website, you have exactly 2 hours and 41 minutes left to get in on this, though there are lots more cliackable deals to come. Sign up at BlackboardEats.com/everywhere.
