I’ve had the pleasure of writing for a wonderful Mobile Deals company called Scoutmob. You’ve probably heard of it, considering they’re located in 13 major U.S. cities and are about to add 7 more. If you haven’t heard of it, you’re very much missing out.
Scoutmob is not your typical daily deal website. What makes them unique (besides their kickass old-timey branding and love for mustaches) is that they really care about sharing each business’ story. Instead of someone at corporate Googling a business located in another city and writing some weirdass blurb about them that never makes any sense, they hire local writers to interview and photograph the business. They encourage the writers to discuss their personal feelings about the experience. It’s been a blast writing for them and I’ve gotten to meet and speak with so many interesting local proprietors in Austin.
The best part of Scoutmob? Their deals are free. No catch. We’ve featured some of the best restaurants in town too: Annie’s Cafe, Kenichi, Ranch 616, How Do You Roll? Zandunga Mexican Bistro, Biscuits and Groovy, and the list goes on and on. They have a very user-friendly app for iPhone and Android or you can get the deal sent directly to your email or via text message.
Their current coupon is for Zandunga Mexican Bistro. Started by Edgar Torres (son of the owners of Austin fave Mi Madre’s) and his wife Christina Milian-Torres, Zandunga features gourmet interior Mexcian fare that will knock your socks off! Probably some of the best queso in town. They also have a delicious frozen mojito! The current coupon is 50% up to $15 max discount. How can you beat that?
Scoutmob is located in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, Boston, Washington D.C., Denver, and Nashville. Check out their map to find your city and to see what cities they have coming down the pipeline!

LOVE Scoutmob! They’ve had some seriously great deals here in Chicago. And their iPhone app lets you use a mustache cam, which is just awesome.
Tell me about it! They have wonderful deals here in Austin too. I really enjoying using them. Just had sushi at this kick-ass sushi joint How Do You Roll? for $5 w/ drink included!
