New App To Book Last Minute Luxury Spa Appointments in NYC


New York City is chock full of the best of the best when it comes to spas, salons, and fitness studios.


SpaFinder Wellness recently launched in NYC a new service that lets customers schedule same-day and next-day appointments at deeply discounted prices, Last Minute.  The brilliance behind the plan was in recognizing that 30-60% of appointment slots go unfilled each day, so the site searches a network of more than 20,000 businesses to offer discounts for unbooked appointments, 30-80% off their ticket value.  And unlike our favorite coupon sites like Groupon and LivingSocial, there’s no annoying hastle of trying to get someone on the phone, only to find out the next avaialable appointment isn’t for 6 months (we’ve all been there.)  With Last Minute, you make the rezzie right on the computer, get a confirmation email, show up the same or next day, and you’re done!



I gave Last Minute a try with a facial from Sothys Spa.  What I loved best about the process (I mean, besides the actual facial, which was heavenly, to say the least), was that the site lets you filter services and classes by neighborhood, category, and time slot.  The last thing I wanted to do was waste time, only to find an appoitment that was available in Tribeca smack in the middle of my work day, cause that just wouldn’t be feasible.  But, I could easily find something located right in the vicinity of my work, during hours that I would be free.

Will I ever completely give up my Chinatown massages?  No.  But when I’m in the mood for something a bit more special than a massage table separated from others by nothing else than tissue paper hanging from the ceiling, I will definitely be checking out the options on Last Minute.  It turns out waiting until the last minute, can, in some instances, pay.
