Ya ever heard of Groupon? It’s a site that lists discounted coupons! Yes, that’s right, you can actually buy a coupon (gift certificate) worth a specific dollar amount for.. LESS!
Here’s how it works: You sign up here. Check for discounts in your area. When you see something that you want, you buy it. So you actually get a gift certificate that you can use at a restaurant or store and pay less than it’s worth. Whew, what a bargain! BUT there’s a catch! Your card won’t actually be charged unless there are enough people who also want that same discount. Hence the name GROUPON – you gotta work together as a group to get the discounts. No, they don’t have to be your friends (there are millions of people on Groupon), but it doesn’t hurt to refer friends! (If your friends buy something, you get a $10 certificate) Check it out and lemme know what you think!
