In a curious move by smartphone maker HTC, it’s announced it’ll be launching a new coupon service called “Best Deals.” The app / widget combo will aggregate offers from 12 pushers, including familiar names like LivingSocial and Trip Advisor, although HTC hopes to add more categories in the future with further partnerships. The service will show you local deals tailored to your tastes, as well as exclusive offers on HTC products, which you can sort, review, bookmark and share from within the app. Discount-hunters from the UK, Italy, Germany, France and Spain will get first access to a catalogue of 1,700 initial deals on the 8X / 8S Windows phones and Android One X+. OG One X and One S owners will find themselves that little bit richer shortly after, snagging the app via a software update. There’s no word on plans to bring the deal aggregator to North American shores, but for Europeans, it’s time to start thinking about which spa treatment you want first.
