Matchbook lets you bookmark places and notifies you when they're running deals

How many times do you hear yourself say, "We have to go there!" And the next thing you know, you've forgotten all about it, and you're back at your usual spot?

Tell me this: Where would you be if you knew one of the places you've been dying to go to was running a deal?

Matchbook is this great bookmarking app for iPhone that not only helps you remember the restaurants, bars and shops you want to go to, but it also alerts you when those places are running offers. I mean, seriously, is there anything better than scoring a discount on something you already want to do?

It's as simple as this: Bookmark a restaurant. Then the next time a daily deals site like LivingSocial, Groupon or Gilt City has a deal for that place, Matchbook will alert you about the coupon.

It's a beautiful combination: Matchbook keeps track of where you want to go in the future, and it gives you an incentive to make that visit right away - cash savings.
