CleverBuy - Be Clever, Pay Less is one among several daily deal sites/group-buying sites in the Philippines. I'm one of the first few members who have seen how their market has grown to almost 10,000 members now.
Ten days, every day, before their launch, they held mini-contests that reward Php100 load credits to any mobile telco. And since yours truly is a fan of these contests and promos, I joined. And luckily, I won one round.
Come their official launch last March, CleverBuy held another game--their popular Guessing game for their Facebook fans. The mechanics are simple. Just guess how many vouchers will be sold at the end of deal. And again, yes, I joined and won that contest. (Maybe I'm really lucky. LOL.) The prize was a total of 3,333 Clever credits that can be used to buy vouchers on their site. (By the way, they still hold contests with even larger prizes at stake on their site, so make sure to visit CleverBuy from time to time.)
I bought four Ariake Japanese Cuisine vouchers (one voucher is good for 4-6 pax) from CleverBuy with the credits I've won from the latter. And oh, I can say I'm definitely a winner with Ariake Japanese Cuisine and CleverBuy!
I've already used one voucher last April--my birthday month. I was with the boyfriend and our two friends.

The four of us were the only guests when we had arrived. The place is quiet and relaxing. Two thumbs up for Ariake's ambience.
The voucher bought from CleverBuy already predetermined what we were going to eat. The only thing we had to order were drinks.
Special Makisushi Deluxe (Tempura Roll, Philadelphia Roll, Canadian Roll, Ninja Roll and Salmon Skin Roll)
I'm craving for Jap food right now. Oh no! But I guess we've got to move on. So...
Our two friends were big eaters (as if we were not lol). Kidding! Hehe. They even ordered baked oysters and Chahan (fried rice).
Baked Oysters (Php265)
After our sumptuous dinner, we were then ready for desserts. Yes, desserts! The voucher also included Coffee Jelly. The coffee jelly and vanilla ice cream really blends well together. I love it!
Coffee Jelly (Php85)
I enjoyed Ariake. And for sure, I'll be coming back again. Anyway, I still have three more vouchers with me. Wonder if I'll have a mini-contest with one voucher as the prize...hmmm...stay tuned!
