Ways to Save More Money with Groupon
Groupon is well known and loved by now. And why wouldn’t it be when you can use discounts to discover new things in your area, make holidays less expensive, and maybe even discover a new hobby for cheap. We came up with 10 more tips to get even more savings while using Groupon:
- Refer your friends
We all have friends who love great deals just as much as we do, so refer them to Groupon and get $10 Groupon bucks for each and every one of them. This is a very simple procedure – sign in, click on your name in the top corner, and select “refer a friend” from the drop-down menu.
- Extra charges
The most expensive part of Groupon is hidden extra feels, like gas or your cost to get to wherever you are going, so always check for such fees and calculate them into your total price.
If you want to avoid such fees, you can wait until holidays for some activities and items, as Groupon often has extra discounts during those festive times.
Avoid keeping track of best deals on the site yourself and sign up for alerts. You can be directed to useful information and things that apply to you and your interests. If you have scheduled traveling in the near future, subscribe to those cities in advance to collect some good ideas and discounts.
- Get social
Tweet about your favorite Groupon buys and Groupon will tailor the offers based on your interests. This way you will not have to deal with stuff that you don’t care about and save not only money, but time too.
- “Best of Groupon”
If you want to save serious money, search through “Best of Groupon” to get deals that are 50% or more off. This easy way will lead you to the best savings and fast.
- Fine print
Fine print is a very important step in every deal with Groupon. It’s not long, so don’t fret, it won’t take much time. You should know what the deal covers and don’t do anything to ruin it. Some deals specify that you can’t get the particular discount if you already used it last month, so buying it again would be a waste of money.
- Sell unused vouchers
If you bought something and never had a chance to use the vouchers, don’t waste them. You can always sell them on CoupFlip and recoup whatever you just spend on that impulse buy.
- Have a purpose
It might be tempting to just wonder all over Groupon and buy whatever looks good and sounds cheap, but the best way to shop is to know what you are looking for before coming there. Decide if you want to get a nice vacation, a massage, or something for your home and then shop – you will save a lot of money this way.
- Groupon online
One of the best ways to get the best deals is to follow Groupon on Twitter. Lots of new deals are announced there daily. Even better – you can tweet them with suggestions about what deals you would like to see.
- Mobile Groupon
Download free Groupon app and keep up with the best offers anywhere. The app knows your location, so you will be able to check the best deals wherever you are at the moment. This way you will get offers that you can really benefit from and not something that might be good, but too far.
