When I wanted someone to tell me more about Groupon, I looked no further than Casey Tell-It-Like-It-Is Mullins. Her no holds barred approach to everything in life gives you an honest, open look at motherhood, infertility, depression and law school widowhood. Read all about the hilarity of her life with Moosh in Indy—I know you’ll love her as much as we do!

When I told a friend I didn’t know what Groupon was her reply to me (in all caps) was “YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT GROUPON?”
I knew if she was typing in all caps it had to be good.
So I joined (for free) and was instantly sucked into what Groupon is all about, “collective buying power.”
Groupon teams up with businesses in your city (mine is Indianapolis; there are 47 other major cities available) and offers screaming deals at severely discounted prices and a deal a day is delivered to your email for your consideration.
I have seen everything. Examples include discounted museum admission, half off drinks and dinner at the city’s trendiest restaurants, half off spa services at various salons, deeply discounted dance or cooking lessons, clothing discounts, dental health deals and my personal favorite? A full on trip to the Chiropractor for less than an insurance co-payment.
Each Groupon is valid for a specific amount of time, usually six months to a year, and each one spells out any restrictions.
Even better? You can give them as gifts and/or keep them for yourself, when you refer a friend and they purchase their first Groupon? You get a $10 credit on your account.
I currently have a facial, a massage, and a couple of manicures just WAITING for me. Enjoy!

DUDE, the one today? Hour long massage and half hour facial for $45!!!
Another site to check for group discounts is LivingSocial Deals (http://deals.livingsocial.com) – it’s the same idea w/ deals of the day in different cities across the country. I follow both and have gotten some great prices on good stuff!
That Dec 11th Groupon? I & my relatives account for 10 of the 1322 Groupons bought. Family outing FTW!
