Groupon Hot Deals & Tips

by Ann-Marie on March 14, 2011



You may already receive email updates from Groupon for your city’s deal of the day; however just a tip for ya – if you click around and look at other cities – even across the country with no plans to travel there – you can find national or online deals that don’t show up on your own hometown page. It may not be the highlighted deal front & center, but look to the side in the box that says “Deals Nearby”. Be sure to check the offer details for any restrictions.

Another tip – if you’re planning to travel for Spring Break, or you’re starting plans for a summer vacation, be sure to check those cities as well (and expiration dates to be sure the offer falls within your travel period).

Here are a couple of examples going on now! I’ve listed the city to find the deal, but most you can use anywhere.

  • Expires today! Howl at the Moon – Indianapolis, Orlando, Kansas City and more: $25 for $50 worth of drinks, food and cover charges. Valid only for location purchased. Deal ends today (3/14/11), offer expires 9/15/11.
  • Expires today! Domino’s PizzaGreenville, SC: $8 for 1 large, any-topping pizza (value $20) – this is a good deal if you like to load your pizza with toppings, like my husband. If you’re like me & my kids, not such a great value. Must order online. Carryout only. Not valid with any other offers. Deal ends today (3/14/11), offer expires 4/19/11.  Thanks, Money Saving Mom!
