In today’s economy, saving money on everything you buy has become the savvy way to live. Maximizing this idea are group coupon sites, which are popping up left and right. Groupon, the most recognizable of all, is leading the pack and was also recently acquired (for a hefty sum) by Google.
But not all group coupon sites are worth your valuable time; some have the buying power to bring you significantly better-priced deals and more coveted offers than others.
We’ve compiled the top 5 best group coupon sites to make every fashionista a savvy beacon of deals and steals.
The leader of the group coupon pack, Groupon, offers customers a deal a day in various cities in the US. Because they are widely recognized, they are able to deliver the ultimate deals. The deals range from things to do, to sites to see, to special places to eat. If you’re going to sign up for only one group coupon site, this is it.
Past deals at Groupon included this $79 massage and facial package.
When using Groupon, you must act quickly; if you want something, buy it. But, in order to get the daily deal, a certain number of people must buy it and if not, the deal is canceled.
Next best is LivingSocial, a site that offers a coupon-a-day from local businesses around the US.
Past deals include a one-hour, on-location photo shoot with wardrobe changes by Valerie Jeannis for only $65.
Cities include New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and more. But, just like Groupon, if enough users don’t buy the deal in the one-day time slot, the deal is canceled.
3. KGB Deals
Thirdly, KGB deals offers daily coupons on 50-90% off of things to do, eat, wear and activities in every major city in the US.
Past deals at Kgb include $10 for one week of unlimited yoga, pilates, and more.
Users are required to log on and buy a deal before it expires, similar to Groupon and LivingSocial. With KGB Deals, if the deal meets its activation point, or the minimum number of customers required to get the deal, users get the bargain.
Unlike our top three sites, Bloomspot doesn’t require a minimum number of users to buy the deal or else it’s canceled so thankfully, if you want it, you got it.
Past deals at Bloomspot include various hair goodies from Folica.
The only catch to Bloomspot is it’s only available in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. But for our lucky readers in those cities, check out Bloomspot for deals such as discounted hair salon services and personal training sessions.
Lastly, this coupon site e-mails members one deal each day with a limited amount of time to buy it but, unlike Groupon or LivingSocial, users get the deal no matter how many people buy it.
Past deals at My Daily Thread include a coveted 60% off of Mel Boteri handbags.
An added bonus of using My Daily Thread is if a certain number of people do purchase the deal, then the deal comes with a bonus. Past “bonuses” include users getting $25 worth of tea for $10, and when 50 people bought the deal, users are given a buy one get one free bonus tea.
Available in Atlanta, New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, and more
