#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

    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?

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

    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.

    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…
