About ReferLocal


ReferLocal is a member-only local digital advertising platform featuring exclusive deals and offers from local businesses. Unlike other local deal Web sites that focus narrowly on 50-90% off daily deals at local restaurants or spas (no worries – we offer daily deals at those locations too!), we take the concept of deals to the next level by opening up the opportunity to all types of local advertisers, including plumbers, lawyers, dentists, hair stylists, landscapers, wealth managers, casinos, arenas, sporting venues, yoga instructors, karate schools, locksmiths, colleges and universities, accountants, air conditioning technicians, florists, photographers, chiropractors, dog walkers, contractors, painters, optometrists, clowns, tutors, pet groomers, and just about any other local or professional service business looking for new customers in your neighborhood. Membership is free and advertisers only pay for performance.
