Have any of my tens of readers out there heard of Groupon? It's a web site/application that offers discounts/coupons for local businesses in your area. I signed up for it a month or so ago, but originally it said it still wasn't in Boise yet. This is because they have to have a large enough group of people sign up in one area to start off with to make sure that they can offer the discounts.
Well apparently enough people signed up because I started getting a Deal of the Day email last week. I'm sure there will be plenty of them that I'm not interested in...but it's great when there's one that I really like. Already I've found one that I'm interested in and want to try. (30 day exercise boot camp, normally $149 on Groupon for $39. I may try this to get in shape before my upcoming cruise in October.) You can check out the Groupon web site to find out more info about how it works and what the deals are in your area.
And with Groupon you can also refer friends and get credits towards future deals. Here's how it works: If someone joins Groupon within 72 hours after clicking your link, they'll notify you within 24 hours of their first purchase and automatically add $10 Groupon Bucks to your account. You can refer as many people as you like. Even if you don't click on my link and sign up, it's still worth it to check it out. You never know if you'll find a deal you like!
