Foibly is a new service that lists all the Facebook Offers currently available on a single webpage, accessible via your PC and phone. You can sort the Offers based on whether they are new, popular, or expiring. Best of all, Foibly lets you do it all without actually going to Facebook: you just have to drop in at the end to actually redeem the offer.
For the uninitiated, Facebook launched Offers back in April, just eight months after scrapping Facebook Deals. The feature allows businesses to push coupons to your News Feed or promote them as Sponsored Stories.

That means some Offers are specifically advertised, meaning you won’t see them if they aren’t targeted at you (or if you use a service such as AdBlock), while others you will only see if you (or one of your Facebook friends) Like the corresponding company’s Facebook Page.
To claim an offer, all you have to do is click the “Get Offer” link below the story you see anywhere on Facebook. Once you do, Facebook will send you an email that you can print off or show on your mobile phone at the business to redeem your discount.
Since Foibly scours hundreds of Facebook Pages belonging to major chains to find new Facebook Offers, it does the majority of the work for you. It allows you to just skim through all the Offers on the social network at once so you don’t have to worry about missing anything on Facebook and you can ignore all Offers you see after you’ve already checked Foibly.
You can choose to receive offers by e-mail. RSS is apparently also available, but at the time of writing, the link on the site was broken.
Foibly also has a Twitter account, but it doesn’t have a Facebook Page. Oh the irony.
