As a parent and living in a home where money counts, I am always looking for ways to save a little bit of money while still being able to get out and have fun with my wife and my kids. Sometimes we do this through free activities, and sometimes we splurge. However, it is nice when you can simply find a site where you can find fun places to go or eat and still save money too and this is why I have loved using Groupon in the past and continue to use it today.
I first became aware of Groupon as a site a few years ago. I was going to a new city and a friend of mine told me about the site and said that I should check it out. I did, and found a ton of great offerings in the city where I was going to get money off of meals and even a few local attractions. What could be better. The site was secure and easy to purchase from. Over the years the site has continued to grow, and it is not just localized content now, but they also have content that is national in scope and covers consumer good to restaurants to hotels and more. You even can get Groupon cash for some offers, so you save even more money by spending money!
On a recent family vacation to Niagara falls we used Groupon to book a hotel deal. I had been looking online at a lot of the other travel websites and found that the deal being offered on Groupon was the best and it came with some other great perks including some meals and the ability of getting into a few attractions – so we signed up and it was a great stay!
One of the final things that I wanted to say today about Groupon is to stress that it also is a great way to get out on a date night every now and again. For my wife and I with the hectic scheduled that we have, it is nice to be able to save a bit of money on a nice meal as we know we will be spending money on a babysitter too. So having Groupon deals that are local to us is important and a nice splurge every now and again – as you cannot forget to rekindle your own relationship every now and again!
What’s even better is that there is a new service called Groupon Coupons that they just launched. Groupon has partnered with more than 8,600 national retailers to bring you amazing deals right to your inbox! It’s a completely free way for shoppers to find thousands of coupons and exclusive promo codes from stores like Macy’s, Expedia, eBay, Nike, and more.
If you have never checked out Groupon you should, as I think you will find, like I did, that there is a ton of deals just waiting to be found!
