Groupon is a really cool site. Every morning they feature some kind of cool product or service that you can use in your local area. They support quite a few cities so far too, so you should take a look to see if yours is listed.
So what you have to do to get these really good discounts, is to join in on the group buy. For example, today’s Groupon here in Denver is for a $50 coupon to a hair salon and you pay $25 for it.
But the only way to get this deal is if enough people also join in on the deal. At this time, 6 people have purchased the deal and 14 more need to buy within 2 days and 15 hours.
I’m a sucker for deals like this, especially when it involves my local businesses.
I’ve subscribed to their RSS feed, so that I can see what the deal is every morning when it’s updated, but you can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to get updates or subscribe to their email list.
