I don't know if yall have heard of a little site called Groupon, but it is amazing. Basically its a site that will send you daily deals for your city, or any you subscribe to, straight to your very own inbox! They negotiate huge deals with popular businesses in your area and then offer them to you! You can get discounts on food, spa treatments, hair services and all sorts of other things!
Recently I've bought a Groupon to Handpicked, Shutterfly, and tickets for more than half off to see the Columbia City Ballet.
Basically all you have to do is buy, then it'll be delivered to your inbox the next day, then just print and use! For you eco-conscious bloggers out there, they also have an iPhone and android mobile app so you don't have to print to use.
An added perk is for every friend you refer that buys a Groupon, you get $10 towards your next Groupon!
If you need a referral my link is: http://www.groupon.com/r/uu7344712
Also, you always have the option of buying as gifts and at these prices anyone can afford something nice for their friends and family!
Another little know site is LivingSocial, which is basically the same thing. I recently bought a 1/2 dry cleaning coupon and 2 fandango movie tickets for $9! The unique thing about this one is they offer discounted trips to anywhere you could want to go. These seem to be especially targeted towards romance most of the time!
They also have a perk. When you buy a deal, if 3 of your friends buy it also, you get it free!
These deals are too good to pass up so get out there and start grouponing!
I wasn't paid by either of these companies, but I think they are so awesome I had to share!
