This isn’t just about saving money, it’s about putting your dollars directly into the hands of people doing amazing things, right here in Vancouver. Fortunately apps like GetintheLoop offer locals an up-to-date database of nearby businesses that offer unique, interesting and essential products and services close to you.

GetintheLoop has exploded in downloads in recent months and is now connecting locals with local businesses across Canada, which includes a recent expansion into Vancouver, complete with local owners heading up operations right in the city. The result? GetintheLoop is now able to help locals discover hidden gems and rediscover local favourites, some of which host exclusive special offers on the app.

The app also showcases nonprofits in Vancouver, making it easy to support the organizations working hard to make our city that much more awesome.

Some of the local businesses currently hosting exclusive offers, events, and experiences include...

Little Mohr Photography: This incredible local photographer offers “Goddess Sessions”; outdoor boudoir shoots that are designed to encourage women to love their bodies through a celebration of themselves in nature. 

Bare Wax Bar: The bar wax bar offers sugaring, an all-natural, less painful alternative to waxing that gently exfoliates the skin and leaves the customer feeling smooth and irritation-free. Currently, people with GetintheLoop (also known as “Loopers”) can receive a special deal on brazilian and underarm sugaring.  

Nelly's Grill: The definition of a local restaurant. Nelly’s has been serving happy customers on West 4th for years!

Loopers can get a special discount on their benedict now.

Pelle DermaTouch: This highly experienced skincare technician has graciously provided several exclusive offers to “Loopers', including special offers on laser hair removal and microdermabrasion!
