Any San Francisco residents looking to save a bit of cash around town should check out the new BeThere Deals iPhone app (free).

Offering new deals everyday, BeThere Deals displays local discounts and coupons in map or list format. Green pins indicate active deals, while red pins show expired deals. At first, I thought it was strange to display expired coupons; then I realized that many of the deals are active multiple days of the week, but only for certain time periods. That means you can easily plan an outing around BeThere Deals’ offerings in advance.

Although I wouldn’t call BeThere Deals a complete replacement for other coupon apps, it’s definitely worthy of springboard space if you’re in the targeted area. The app doesn’t require you to pre-purchase deals or rely on group purchasing power. If there’s a deal you want to take advantage of (deals range from free food, buy-one-get-one-free offers to 50 percent-off coupons), simply tap  “Get This Deal” and show the screen to the merchant. Aside from its limited availability, I do wish the app offered a way to view deals by category, too.

BeThere Deals has plans to expand into markets beyond the Bay Area, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Las Vegas, San Diego and Phoenix, so keep an eye out for updates.
