I just bought $10 worth of Red Mango frozen yogurt for $5. I've never been there but my friend Sarah was recently raving about it. Groupon lets me either visit favorites (like my hair salon for a half off color) or try new restaurants that I have not yet tried like Cilantro.
Either way it is fun to do. A little 50 off shopping from my computer. It is always a win-win. Either I try something new and am glad I only paid 50% off or I found something new and fun that I may have overlooked.
Check it out here, you will be glad you did.
(You can buy Groupons for cities you don't live in but visit. So check it out if you are traveling somewhere.)
