Dubai: saving money
The cost of living in Dubai can be quite high, but there are always deals to be had. Online companies offer services, excursions and products at greatly reduced prices:
· Groupon (www.groupon.ae);
· Cabone (www.cobone.com/deals/dubai),
· Deal Gobbler (www.dealgobbler.com)
· Living Social (www.livingsocial.com/united_arab_emirates)
If you sign you to www.dubaideals.ae you receive a consolidated list of deals from the above sites.
The Entertainer also offers a series of books for the family, children, fine dining and spa days with hundreds of two-for-one offers. The books can be purchased online (www.theentertainerme.com) or from book shops and supermarkets.
For real shopaholics, stores also offer massive discounts during the Dubai Shopping Festival (February) and Dubai Summer Surprises (June/ July).
Despite high costs in some areas, water is more expensive than petrol!
