Have you heard about Groupons?


I had seen something about this, but didn't really pay attention to it. Then, Samantha, our middle child, told us about the great deal she got for her boyfriend for Christmas. She got him a haircut, shave and facial for $15. He LOVED it and she loved the price, since she is a poor college student.

So, I decided to check it out. It is a site that has a daily deal in your area. Now, these are only available in major cities, so if you don't live near one, it will not be a good deal for you. Unless you are headed somewhere on vacation!

The deal is based on collective buying power and is usually half the price of the value of whatever is the deal of the day. I went and checked out recent deals, and found them for spas, gyms, restaurants, flower arranging classes, and other things.

You can sign up to have a daily email so you don't have to go to the site to check out the daily deal. I am looking forward to find some good deals!

If you want to check it out, you can go here: Groupon Yes, this IS a referral link. If you sign up, I get $10 Groupon Bucks when you buy your first groupon. But this is my blog, so I can put up a referral link! If you don't want to sign up through that link, just go to http://www.groupon.com/.

Hope someone finds a deal they can use!!

My daughter sent me a referral a few weeks ago. So far, nothing they've offered has caught my eye, but I keep looking. Someday it will happen. :)

That is what I figure. Something may catch my eye. But if not, nothing lost, right?

How fun! I hadn't heard of that site. I will check it out. And if I can use one, I'd love you to get the coupon:)

How exciting, Shana! Thanks for letting me know. I have sent my addy.

Debbie, maybe you will find something good at Groupons. Today's deal for me is a Valentine special at a bed and breakfast. I am thinking about it for a surprise for Hubby!

Hi, SonyaAnn, I was just on YOUR blog.

I am so boring lately! I need to find some excitement.

That sounds really cool!
