I’m sure the majority of you have heard about Groupon. Coupon sites like Groupon, Living Social & even Yelp Deals have blown up over the past few years and they are continuing to add different features to their sites. I love going on Groupon and browse to see what’s available. It’s also my go-to site when I want to treat myself to a manicure or a pedicure, or something extra special at a reduce price.
I remember when I first heard about Groupon, I couldn’t imagine how this concept would work. Once I got the hang of it, it’s been such an amazing source of finding deals to try out without paying full price.
These days, these discount coupon sites are offering hotel coupons, hundreds of different items at a discounted price, and restaurant coupons. It doesn’t stop there, they even have a ton of different fitness coupons to a bunch of different gyms in my area. I could pretty much try a different physical activity every month for the rest of the year from Groupon!
So, what are some great things to buy on Groupon that may save you some money?
If I’m going out of town and I’m not using my hotel points from my credit card, Groupon is the next best place to check for discounted hotel rooms.
You can find nice hotels on Groupon for a great rate. Whenever you are traveling, locate your Groupon app and synch it to your location so it can help you find a hotel near you. You might be able to find affordable vacation bundles as well through Groupon.
2. Restaurant Coupons
I love traveling and finding local spots instead of visiting chains when I go out of town. I usually go right to Yelp Deals to check out the reviews and see what the popular spots are around me. I like that the Yelp app is easy to use and gives me all the info in one place.Not only do I get to eat delicious food, but I also to take advantages of the discounts these restaurants offer.
3. Fitness Related Coupons
I love trying new fitness activities and coupon sites are a great way to get to try before you buy. There is so much to offer in the way of fitness, that you would never get board! Activities like rock-climbing, stand-up paddle boarding and hot yoga are great ways to get out of your comfort zone and not break the bank. It’s a lot of fun to explore new activities and you never know who you will meet!
Most of the people in my life are pretty hard to buy for, so I really like looking through the Groupon to see what kind of unique items are available that would make great gifts.
5. Home Furnishings
Did you just move and need to furnish your home? Coupon sites can be a great way to find discounts on high quality & unique items. I bought my bedroom curtains from Groupon and really like them.
Double up on Savings
Don’t forget, you can earn cash back on sites like Groupon when you shop through Ebates. I wrote a very detailed post about Ebates in my 10 Part Money Making Series and what it is, how it works and how you earn cash back. It’s a great way to earn extra money for something you already do!
