Fipster brings group buying power to the world of music


17th of March, 2011 Bookmark and Share
The group buying phenomenon doesn’t seem to be losing any traction in today’s world and as rumour and speculation flies around the internet that Google are making another bid for Groupon we were delighted and a little surprised to come across Fipster (www.fipster.com) the very first site to bring group buying to the world of music and entertainment.

Rather than looking at special offers as a geographical level as Groupon and LivingSocial do, these guys are specifically targeting the world of music. In essence they use crowd power to get you what you want at unbeatable prices. They cut out the middle man and use their bargaining power with the record labels and as a result have some wonderful exclusives, limited editions and group buys that you just can't find anywhere else. It couldn't be simpler really, lots of people get together and use their group power to get music and merchandise from their favourite bands and musicians at very low prices.

At the moment Fipster are taking us straight back to the 1990’s, Parklife, The Battle of Britpop and our long since departed curtained hair! Their current set of group buy offers celebrates the achievements of Graham, Damon and the rest of the Blur boys along with the bands that inspired them. They’re using crowd power to bring you official Blur and Gorillaz T-shirts, badges and DVD’s at massively reduced prices (from just £6). Looking back to the people and bands that inspired Blur and the rest of the Britpop movement they’ve sourced some extra special T-shirts, beanies, badges and DVD’s celebrating 45 years of The Who.

Check them out at www. fipster.com. The current deals end on March 19th.
