Online Shopping Comes To Town

Here's an exciting online shopping experience at Ensogo Philippines. Ensogo a LivingSocial Company offers daily deals up to 90% OFF the best things to do, see, eat, and buy around Philippines. Just visit·
ENSOGO is derived from the words Entertain, Social, and Go. It is a Social commerce website that offers members discounted daily deals on restaurants, hotel accommodations, spa services, beauty treatments, activities and retail products in Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia.

Ensogo started as a legal entity in Thailand in 2009 and soon expanded its operations to Philippines and Indonesia in 2011. In June, 2011, Ensogo was acquired by LivingSocial.[4] The acquisition extended to Ensogo in Thailand, Philippines as well as Indonesia. The acquisition is in line with LivingSocial’s objective to partner with companies which had similar values and ways of doing business.

Ensogo Philippines
Ensogo expanded and set up business in Manila, Philippines in July 2010. In The Philippines, Ensogo Philippines offers members discounted deals in Manila and Cebu. Among Ensogo Philippines partners in 2011 include Yahoo Philippines, which featured their deals on its website. In the same year, Ensogo has also partnered with local bank Banco De Oro for 4 months  By June 2011, Ensogo officially joined the LivingSocial family.

Ensogo Indonesia also known as DealKeren which translates to “cool deal” in English, was established in August 2010, following the success of online daily deal companies that were earning big money in the U.S. Deal Keren provides discounts for Food, Fun, Travel, Beauty, Electronics and Fashion Products and it was acquired by LivingSocial in June, 2011.


Originally from Thailand, Ensogo Philippines started in July 2010 bringing their passion for online consumer empowerment and drive to create value to millions of bargain hunting Filipinos. The name “Ensogo” was an amalgamation of Entertain, Social and Go and it stands for the company’s belief that is working hard, having fun, sharing, and making a difference. With their tag line “Let’s save together” Ensogo, believes in building a community for consumers to save by offering local, attractive services and products, at the best value achieved by working closely with the best businesses in town.
The group buying site encourages its consumers to try new things by offering only the most unique activities, things to buy, things to see, places to dine, etc. The group buying site’s mechanics is easily comparable to most group buying sites in the Philippines (you like the deal you click and buy, you pay online or OTC, print the voucher and you are good to go, and oh, they offer refund but for a limited time), one stand out characteristic of Ensogo is its commitment to improving not just the lives of its customers but also the well-being of the community it serves. The company proudly (and rightly so if I may add) promotes giving to local causes and charities. Reading through its “about us” section where the group buying site starts discussing their commitment to improving the lives of the impoverished is enough for me to be a customer. They may be a profit maximizing entity but with 3% of their total revenue going to charity, I think their deals deserve a try. Not only are Ensogo customers availing a discount they are also offering those in need a better deal in life.
