Groupon – special deals treasure chest or collection of useless junk to waste money on?
What is Groupon?
It’s a site that offers daily deals on restaurants, goods and services usually local to you or anywhere you search.
Has Groupon benefitted its clients? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. What do I mean by that?
In some cases it has attracted a new subspecies of cheapskates known as the grouponites (I just made that up :p) they only go to places that offer a Groupon and will only go again when that place issues another Groupon. They also usually only order what the Groupon covers and won’t order any extra items or exceed the Groupon amount.
Now, that brings me to the goods section…
I have purchased numerous goods that I may not have needed, some I always wanted, but haven’t purchased and others I didn’t know about.
Products I didn’t buy like: $69 for a gallery wrapped canvas art print, $21 for escali glass kitchen scale; might be junk for me, but it might be a treasure deal for someone else!
Be frugal, and be smart and Groupon will benefit you!
Now there are even Groupon like copy cat sites
I also bought a Groupon for Muscle Maker Grill. I love that place see the review here, as well as El Ay Si and Tommy Chengs among others
I used the Muscle Maker Groupon and got 2 Godfather Meals over Broccoli – Grilled Chicken in Balsamic Vinegar with mushrooms, roasted peppers topped with Mozzarella cheese. Ate one for lunch and brought one home for dinner and after I used it, it was still for sale, so I bought another!
