TAMPA - Some of you may have already heard of Groupon, Crowd Savings or Daily Dealster.
For those of you who have not, you may want to add some of the websites to your favorites. These websites offer half-off deals if enough people like yourself are interested. Not all promotions require a minimum number of takers, however, and will offer the deal regardless of popularity.
For example, I bought a $30 gift certificate for $15 (plus a $2.00 fee). My wife and I enjoyed $30 worth of Sushi and only had to folk over $17 to buy the certificate online.
Here are a few websites offering deals on a regular basis:
Here’s how to do it!
Some places that do not have a minimum of interest include the Creative Loafing website and Tampa Bay Half Off.
Examples of some of these coupons and certificates include The Rack, Barnacles, Bowled, The Lucky Dill, The Venue and more…
Is it worth it? Heck yes!
Just remember -- a small fee of $1-$3 may be added when you are purchasing your certificate, but it is still a great deal because you are saving real money.
So get going! Start saving! Look for my other saving tips to come.
