What is Plum District?

Plum District is a social shopping site that offers local, plus nationwide deals available everywhere.   Like with all social buying sites, the Plum Deals (as they call them) are only available for a limited time.   They offer discounts that focus mainly on moms and their families.   You can find everything including clothes, restaurants, spas, hotels, travel, and family activities.

What do you need to know?

1.   Signing up for an account, doesn’t mean you’ll get the daily e-mail alerts.   Make sure you subscribe to their e-mails.

2.   Plum Deals are often available for multiple days, but only one deal occurs at a time.   Once a deal ends or sells out, you can’t take advantage of it.

3.   Plum Deal vouchers aren’t available immediately.   Check the “Activation Date” on your voucher to know when it will be available to use.

4. Plum Deal vouchers are transferable unless otherwise noted, so you can give one to someone else if you’re unable to use it or feeling generous.   You can also select to purchase Plum Deals as gifts during your purchase.

5. Plum District also offers Plum Steals, which are different than Plum Deals.   They are shocking discounts from favorite major brands and well-established companies.   They are offered just like Plum Deals, but are marked as a “Plum Steal” and have special restrictions.

How do I make a purchase?

1.   Check out the daily Plum Deal and click the “Buy” button.

2.   When you receive your confirmation, just print your Plum Certificate and bring it in like a coupon to redeem or follow the detailed redemption instructions on the Plum Deal voucher.
