Saavy shoppers have caught on to buying Groupons! For the budget conscious, Groupon’s daily deals offer a chance to enjoy family entertainment, home services, and local restaurants at deep discounts. We’re on a budget and always looking for ways to have fun without breaking the bank. Daily deals from Groupon and other daily deal coupon sites allow us to save up to 70% off on things we enjoy.
When you see a deal that you want, buy it on your credit card (or debit card for those of you who like to pay cash!) When you are ready to use your coupon, simply print it out and take it with you to the business who offered it. Coupons are usually good for 6 months to a year. My recent deals have include a 1.5 hour facial for $49 ( saving me $100 on a much treasured luxury moment). We’ve enjoyed saving on a few great new restaurants, tickets to a Halloween Haunted House, and a day of rock climbing for only $8 each. In queue for the future are designer cupcakes for an upcoming birthday and a few more family, fun excursions including indoor go-kart racing and miniature golf. A recent deal from Classy Closets allowed us to get our closet remodeled for only $149. That was worth our sanity and saved us $250. Sign up for daily emails from these companies and save on great services you use already!
Here are the top 5 daily deal sites. These sites are all free to join so sign up today and see the deals in your area.
Groupon is one of the largest daily deal sites. If you are close to a big city, you will get the most opportunities. Check back often as its growing fast. Deals are only available for 24 hours so you have to make a quick decision with Groupn.
Groupon also has daily vacation deals that are outstanding. Watch for deals on around your home town and in cities you will visit this year. In addition to restaurants, great deals can be found on cleaning services and other home services.
Living Social, like Groupons, offers daily deals on everything from restaurants to luxury services. Buyers have a longer window of time to decide on each deal giving you a day or two to react rather than the 24 hours on groupon. Living Social deals are all outstanding and the cities they cover is growing fast. The best deals remain in larger metro areas.
Restaurants.com offer deals on local restaurants. This site has restaurants in every city. While visiting the small town of Benicia, CA recently, I found deals! On Restaurants, you can pay $10 for a $25 coupon at participating restaurants. Most require a $35 purchase at the restaurant and add 18% gratuity to the bill automatically. Its a great opportunity to save some money while trying new restaurants in your area. The restaurants range from local favorites and family businesses to deals at national chains like Applebees and Olive Garden.
Buy With Me calls itself a community buying opportunity. It guarantees merchants a minimum number of buyers or the deal is off. So far, every deal I’ve purchases has been awarded saving me over $250 so far on 4 family outings. Deals stay on the site for quite a while giving you a chance to contemplate the purchase and get news to friends too. Its always fun to get pals to buy so we can all get together for evenings out or activities.
Kgb deals are also outstanding. This site covers most major metro areas and offers nation deals daily too. The savings are 50%-90% from the businesses who offer deals. This daily deal site has alot of recreation offerings making it a top choice for family fun.
