I have used Groupon numerous times to purchase items as well as entrance fees into vacation destinations.It can offer significant savings on goods, getaways and more.
Groupon is a play on words of coupon and group buying; however, groupon is so much more than just a coupon site. The discounts offered are amazing. For example, you can get a Dyson Multi-floor upright vacuum, regularly priced at $399.99 for $199.99.
Save Money on Travel
Have you always dreamed of traveling the world? Check out Groupon's Getaways. An 8 day Rome and Paris vacation that includes roundtrip airfare and hotel rooms for the entire trip based on double occupancy is only $999.00.
While I was on vacation, I purchased a Groupon for Brookgreen Gardens. The normal ticket price for this attraction is $15 per person. I was able to get entrance fees for four for $30. That's 50 percent off the standard price!
One thing to remember with Groupon is time is of the essence. Companies using this site only offer discounts for a limited amount of time.  If you see something you want, order it as soon as you see it; otherwise, you may miss out on the deal of a lifetime!
I would advise checking each deal out carefully before purchasing. Take time to read the fine print , including if there are any restrictions, additional charges or it is only available for a certain amount of time.
To use your groupon at a place of business, you can either print out the groupon or simply show it to the attendant. For example, to the tickets I bought for Brookgreen Gardens, I only had to show the attendant my Groupon from my smartphone. She hit the redeem button and the item was marked as used.
