Groupon – a review of a cool website you need to know about – and check often!

groupon website review


The other day I was checking around for money-saving websites.  One of the websites I found that was really interesting was Groupon.com.  Now, it is important to note that Groupon is not the same thing as Mommysavesbig.com (which is another great money saving website that was just featured in a recent post).  Both of these websites will save you money the difference is that with Groupon you use the power or of local groups to get great savings that you could normally get.

For instance,  when you login to Groupon,  you just entering your ZIP code your primary city where you want to do business in and the latest deal will come up.  It could be anything from a 90 minute massage that normally goes for  around $100 at a discount price of $40.  Sometimes there’s a limit as to how many people can utilize this savings for this particular deal and sometimes there isn’t.  There is always a time or availability limit of one day.  The next day there will always be another deal – I’m waiting to see one from BJ’s for 50% off on desktop and laptop computers!



The deals ranged from half off on organic groceries delivered to your doorstep from a local organic grocer to massages as I mentioned to rockclimbing, painting classes, acupuncture treatments (these can be really great deals as initial assessments at an acupuncturist usually run well over $100), etc…  You can always look back on the website and see what the previous deals you missed out on were.  But be forewarned you might get mad at what you’ve missed – like I just missed out on 80% off deal for two acupuncture visits – damn that would have been nice to have had for $50! Groupon.com is popular all over the United States and growing rapidly.

If you live in a more rural area it might take a while for Groupon.com to get to your town, but if you travel into the bigger cities or travel much will definitely want to pay attention to the latest deals on Groupon.  The latest deal for my town of Charlotte, NC is six sessions of beginners Pole dancing for only $30 which is a 67% discount off of the regular $90 retail value.  And apparently this is quite popular as over 250 people have bought this same deal.  Maybe they will have a great deal soon on Papa John’s pizza or a day at the race track with the Richard Petty Driving Experience
Regardless of what your interests are unique to check out Groupon.com.  All you need to do is look at the past recnt deals that you missed and a leave you wondering what deals are coming up in the next few days or weeks.  There are some really good deals on everything from great food, massages, lessons and classes and much more.  Groupon is definitely worth taking a look at and I highly recommend it. It is definitely a valuable website, like ReportYourComplaint.com, that you will want to favorite, forward to all your friends on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere and then check back daily.

    I took advantage of some Groupon savings last month and got some groceries for half off and a great deal on a great pair of running shoes. It is definitely worth checking out, but I would say there is only about 1 or 2 deals per month that I am really interested in – still that is more than worth it. Great site.

    Groupon is okay, I have seen some pretty good deals, but I would love to get some greatly discounted accupuncture, chiropracter care or a good quality psychic on there. I need a psychic as my father died and my scumbag stepmother is illegally hiding assets that are supposed to go to the grand children (hence the term scumbag). I would love to get the whole scoop from a reliable, trustworthy psychic for a reasonable deal.

    Sometimes, though, Groupon has weird shit on there that nobody would really want. Like today there was a 50% discount on renting a RV for a 3 day weekend. Like I am going to rent a big ass RV for 3 days. I wish there were more cool stuff on there – maybe I don’t check it often enough? I check back at Groupon like once a week when I have time. I would like to get some half price massages or accupuncture as you said is on there or was…

    The site Groupon is a cool idea, although I have not seen anything that would remotely be interested in yet for my city, San Diego, California. But I’ll give it some more time and hopefully something will show up that I will like or be interested in.

    Thanks for the advice, by using my local Groupon here in Philadelphia Pennsylvania I was able to get half off at my local health food store and that was pretty nice. Plus I was able to get around 75% off on a hot rock massage treatment. I like receiving an e-mail every morning as to what the newest deal is on my Groupon. It’s just a really cool website and definitely one of my favorites now, just like ReportYourComplaint.com!

    Groupon sucks. I’ve been a member there for over three months and have found nothing that I’m remotely interested in on there. I get e-mail every day for some spot or girly thing, but there’s no guy stuff ever on there. They need to put some guy stuff on there fast or I’ll be gone and move onto something else.

    I just got a great deal on a 90 minute Swedish massage from a local spa for more than half off! Sweet!

    I like Groupon and have used it for several months now. I have found great coupons for local restaurants that I love at like half off. They also have interesting things like pottery classes, horse riding lessons and even discounts on drinks at local area nightclubs and bars here in Philadelphia. Awesome website.
