Groupons I would actually use

I used to love Groupon, but lately the offers showing up in my inbox are getting more and more tragic. Five dollars for $15 worth of tempura at the sushi buffet a few suburbs over? No thanks. Half-priced Botox at a “salon” in a converted warehouse? I’ll pass. But all these epic Groupon fails did get me thinking about the kinds of Groupons I would actually be eager to use. Most of them are of the fantasy variety, but hey, a girl can dream. Here are 15 imaginary Groupon deals I would redeem in a hot minute: Keep reading »

Well, this blows. It’s just come to my attention that a special GroupOn was offered last summer in Mongolia, advertising discounted unicorn rides. If this doesn’t make you squee with joy and sing the theme to “The Last Unicorn,” I don’t want to know you.

The ad reads:

Unlike bigfoot, Santa Claus and the perfect men, unicorns really exist. Today’s Groupon offers full proof with a one-day unicorn-back riding from The Horse Whispers.

Every week, I get an email from Groupon Goods offering me a selection of deeply discounted products like earbuds and yoga mats and wine stoppers.

A few weeks ago my Groupon Goods email included a 3-pack of “Freedom Bras,” and I was instantly intrigued… Keep reading »

Hop On This Groupon Gap Offer (Please!)

The Gap is usually a go-to for our fall shopping, so we were pleasantly surprised to see this Groupon offer land in our inbox this morning: Sign up for the deal and you’ll only pay $25 for $50 worth of merchandise in stores. For those not familiar with Groupon, it’s a sort of local coupon service where retailers and business owners can offer you a deal, but only if enough people participate (or sign up) for the deal. If the offer goes through, you pay online and print out your certificate. So, if you already know you’re going to spend $50 at the Gap (um, today), might as well get in on the coupon now to capture the savings opportunity. [Groupon] Keep reading »
