Groupon is a a deal of the day site that is available in many cities across the country. It is one of my favorites and I have bought from them several times. You can get great bargains on local items or online items but you need to purchase the day the item is available because the next day is a new bargain!
How does it work?
Just click “BUY” before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people sign up, they charge your credit card and send you a link to print your Groupon. The Groupon has redemption instructions and a map right on it! If not enough people join, no one gets it (and you won’t be charged).
Today there is a great bargain for the Detroit area that I wanted to highlight.
Today only you an get two dinners and two tickets to late night comedy at Andiamo Novi for just $20. (orginal cost is $49.95) That is just $10 a person for dinner and the show! You can buy for yourself or give the certificate to someone as a gift. This would be a fun and cheap date night.
Groupon also has side deals that can be purchased as well. Some are for online businesses and you can purchase them no matter were you live.
Today’s Detroit Side Deal is for $35, you get $70 worth of custom handbags and more at 1154 Lill Studio, a Chicago-based boutique with an online presence. Because shipping is included, this Groupon has a value of up to $80. You can design your own cute handbag for just $35. This looks so fun! Remember, because this is an online deal anyone across the country can buy this not just those in the Detroit area. You will need to look at the Detroit page though.
They even have design your own bag kits that would be a great gift!
Look at this!
Once you sign up, you will receive emails from Groupon with the daily deals so you do not miss another great bargain.
Don’t forget to check out cities you are going to on vacation. If you watch the Groupon for a few months before your trip you can pick up certificates for dining and activities at your destination for more than half off.
Have you purchased from Groupon? What bargains have you received? I bought a certificate for the Chop Shop and for Grand Traverse Pie Company. Both were great bargains!
