I was recently introduced to the mass coupon craze that is spreading across the nation, and have used it to its fullest advantage. Perhaps you have heard of some of the companies who promote it: Groupon, LivingSocial, and others.
I What they do is they promise businesses a trampling of traffic from new customers, and offer those who subscribe to these mass coupon companies that business’ services or products for at least 50% off!!
These mass coupon companies are in most major cities across the nation, and are becoming well known, with tens of thousands of subscribers in each city. They are very user – friendly, and as a subscriber (I subscribe to all three listed above) you receive an email in your email box announcing the “deal of the day.”
You can subscribe to your own city’s listings, as well as find out what is offered in other cities, perhaps because you will be traveling there in the future, or because you have friends and family who live there whom you would like to gift.
From scuba diving to spa treatments, from restaurants to home cleaning services, it’s all there, and you are bound to find something that interests you. (I’ve spent $260 already on places and services I know I will use throughout the year, thus saving me over $300 as well) As I write, my husband is enjoying a day paintballing for half price, and tonight we are going out to eat a fabulous $40 meal at our favorite restaurant — all for just $20.
We’ve made it really easy to get hooked up with great deals. Scroll down this page to the “Groupon” link on the left side of this page and start living life at 50% off.
On the other side of the table, as a business owner, I just signed a contract with LivingSocial for our SUP FIT stand up paddle fitness classes. Will I be trampled with traffic?
I’ll let you know.
