At pulsd, we only work with merchants with yelp reviews of three stars or higher, and the majority of our merchants are in the four to five star range. We find that we can trust these merchants to provide exceptional experiences to our customers. We work hard to build lasting partnerships with each of our merchants, designing one of a kind promotions and experiences that will be most enjoyable for the pulsd community.

We believe that yelp is a very powerful tool for consumers, and provides value to merchants as they work to build their brand and increase their reach. We have found that merchants with three stars or above are generally good businesses. We also understand that it is completely normal for most great businesses to have a few negative reviews regarding refunds or not being able to receive a refund. We do not discriminate among merchants based on a low percentage of negative customer reviews regarding refund policies.

While more than 99% of our members use our service and operate ethically and within our Terms of Service , we have unfortunately heard of a few instances in which certain members attempt to strong arm merchants into ignoring the fine print stated on the promotion, by threatening to write a negative yelp review. We do not believe that yelp should be used for this purpose, and anyone that we find to be engaging in such behavior will have their account terminated.

Below, we have listed a number of yelp reviews from merchants we work with. Our goal is to highlight the different use cases for yelp, as well as the way in which pulsd plays a prominent role in connecting businesses with new customers. Please bear in mind that each of these reviews is reflective of an independent businesses with a unique promotion redemption and refund policy, and that it is our objective as a company to help merchants design promotions and craft solutions that are most beneficial to their needs at the time.

1. Cantine Parisienne:

“Such a cute gem! Lovely ambiance, lots of windows and cute fairy lights decorating the place… The service was great, and we tipped well. Will definitely come back!”

“Love this place! I've been here several times and originally came here on a pulsd voucher. The service is really attentive and great (breaking all those snooty French stereotypes) and the portions are generous and delicious.”

2. Stecchino:

“Easily one of the better brunch places I've been to. I bought a $29 bottomless brunch deal for two on pulsd.com and it was worth every single penny. Naturally I was expecting some kind of catch once I presented my voucher to our server but she didn't inform us of any.”

“Definitely a great date spot and one of my easiest experiences using a deal (no complications/confusion at all). Waitress was super helpful in letting us know exactly what was included/how it worked. Amazing!”

3. Barca:

“Hassel free. Mentioned we had a Pulsd deal ($29 for two - entree + unlimited mimosas/sangrias). They let us combine two offers at one table for our party of four. The waitress was fun & attentive. Refilling our drinks even before the glasses got empty.”

4. MEGU:

“The bottom line with this place: a high end sushi place that is opulent with fish that tastes like heaven at a price that would make you richer than God… After informing them that I was there for the pulsd omakase deal, they were super professional and escorted us down the stairs past a reflecting pool with an ice sculpture of the Buddha and lots of incredibly well-dressed people. We were seated at the sushi counter to begin our experience. N.B. This was not a meal, it was an experience.”

5. Desmond’s Steakhouse:

“I bought a Pulsd deal for Desmond's for $85 for a dinner for 2 + a bottle of wine. We were so so please with the meal and service!”

6. New York Vintners:

“Gosh this experience was! I got a pulsd deal to celebrate my good friends bachelorete. The experience was much more than what we expected it to it. The wine class and the food was absolutely 5 stars and the hosting chef so savvy about the food and wines. This would be a great idea for a date, girls night out or just a cool night out. The class we took was a Tour of Italy. I will definitely be back for some of their other classes!”
