"Following our launch in Sydney last month, we have had a huge amount of interest from people in Melbourne," said Stardeals managing director, Patrick Schmidt, adding that the company has been working very hard to bring it to Melbourne.

Schmidt added that he expects Stardeals to be live for all Australian capital cities by the end of June.

Groupon launched in Sydney under the Stardeals brand in mid-February in the midst of an ongoing legal stoush with local site Catch of the Day over the Groupon name.
