Got lunch plans Friday? D.C.-based deals site LivingSocial will offer $1 lunch deals in the District to celebrate the weekend and the Instant Deals feature offered in its mobile app.
LivingSocial’s app users can use their smartphones to pull up the $1 deals in their area within a half-mile. The offer is good from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
(Living Social CEO Tim O’Shaughnessy is the son-in-law of Washington Post Co. Chairman Donald E. Graham. The Post also has a marketing partnership with the firm.)
The coupon site’s Instant Deals are currently only available in D.C., though the company is planning to expand the pilot program to other cities in the future. The service launched on March 7.
LivingSocial’s main competitor, Groupon, is also planning an instant deals service called Groupon Now, which is expected to launch sometime this month.
The release didn’t say which restaurants are participating, though Mashable is reporting that Sticky Rice and California Tortilla are part of the promotion.
