#189 – Get your Groupon

Contrary to what my immediate family believes (I’ll give them a shout out because they are the only humans who still read this blog), I love a good bargain.  So, when I heard about this new thing, I was pumped.

I signed up for Groupon updates.

Every day, Groupon emails me a “deal” with a target number of people needed to render the deal “on”.  The service is so popular in Chicago that most every deal is “on” after only a few hours.  The catch is that you have to purchase the deal within the time period allotted, which is usually 24 hours.  I’ve only purchased one deal so far: I spent $30 fora $75 gift certificate to Spring, which is a restaurant I wanted to go to anyways.   Good news for my fam- they have a Cleveland contingent.  Sign up today to receive discounts on psychic readings and anal reconstructive surgeries.

Fun factor: 8

  1. I can’t read Groupon without thinking the words “get your groove on”.

    Is there a buy one get one on the anal reconstructive surgeries?

  2. Cogs,
    I am still reading this…don’t fret.
    Sept- Nov was painful with NOTHING …but I think your low season is over.
    Love,
    Kristy (Pres)

  3. Finally, anal reconstruction…You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for that. My exploratory college years were pretty intense…

  4. Take a look at http://www.events@goldstar.com You can get all kinds of stuff, mostly events (plays, sporting events, concerts) pretty cheap. Chicago and other big cities are represented. Sign up and they send you a list of opportunities every few days or so.

  5. I too have signed up for Groupon, and I now find it to be the most annoying thing on the planet. Everyday it fills up my in box with useless opportunities to spend my money. I wish bad things on them…bad things…
