The Re-Birth of Dealcloud

Dealcloud is a platform built by the creators of vouchercloud offering you savings of up 90% on restaurants, spas, experience days and events. In 2014 we took the decision to merge this service into vouchercloud where it became vouchercloud deals. Today we’re looking at re-launching Dealcloud. Or so it seems…

Today is the 1st of April, and this is of course famous for being the day that April Fools’ Day is celebrated. We managed to convince the technical director that we should look at re-launching the site in time for the Easter break, just 2 days away! We couldn’t have done it without the help of our chief executive who was completely up for the gag.

April fool’s day is a celebrated every year where people all round the world play practical jokes and hoaxes on each other. One of the most famous was a BBC documentary which aired in 1957 about spaghetti crops in Switzerland. The programme realistically told views how the harvesters would pick spaghetti from trees and that over years of hard work the strands all grew to the same length.
