Groupon has bargain hunters on the hunt

Saving money is never a bad thing and getting a great deal can be a good feeling.
Finding an outrageous bargain can give you the thrill of victory and make you feel like you’ve outsmarted “the man.”

That’s where Groupon comes in and unless you’ve been completely out of the loop like me, odds are you’re already a member. Groupon is a service providing daily e-mail notices about bargains near your area and other major cities. For Ennis and surrounding communities the closest participating city is Dallas.

Joining is easy, simply go to www.groupon.com and submit your e-mail address for each day’s notification.

You can also join through Facebook by searching Groupon and adding the application.

According to their website, Groupon started in November 2008 to make it easier for people to enjoy the great things in their community.

The range of products and services offered at a lower price, sometimes more than 70 percent off the initial cost, vary widely so it’s likely you won’t find something to purchase everyday.

This is a good thing because if Groupon was tempting you to make daily purchases you probably wouldn’t be benefitting from saving the initial amount.

Having only been a member for little more than a week, I have seen items and services that are completely random including belly-dancing classes, more than 50 percent off a bicycle tune-up and 78 percent off of one month of unlimited yoga classes.

Other great deals offered were 53 percent off of two one-hour massages and more than 60 percent off of an art class. Each deal is only good for purchase that day so if it’s a discount you’re interested in you should act fast.

Also, Groupon requires a minimum amount of patrons purchase the daily offered item or service. If not, the deal goes away so if you find something you want and it’s a hot bargain, tell everyone you know.

Even if you only find something you’re interested in purchasing once a month, joining Groupon is still something to think about because the savings offered are monumental.

Share the savings wealth and check out Groupon today, you’ll love it.
