Get Your Groupon!

Here's an easy way to give online shopping a whirl.


Recession Mama Michele Ashamalla: Recently, my daughter's preschool director sent me a link to a site called Groupon that was featuring an ethnic supermarket she knows I love. The deal was $10 for a $20 printable certificate and a free eco-bag for groceries. Since I had never heard of the site, I did some research to make sure it was legit. Turns out, it is similar to Valpak or Money Mailer coupons that come in the regular mail for local businesses, but the deals are phenomenal, usually 50 percent off or better. Also, there is no deal unless a minimum number of people agree to buy. It is generally one per person, although sometimes you can buy extra for gifts.

Finally, there are a limited number of deals available, and the offer is good for the one day only. Groupon features deals in 45 major metropolitan areas in most states. I think it's perfect for people that want to get their feet wet with online shopping, since it's really only partially online. And it's a great way to get a deal for a place you might already love or try out some local businesses you may not have known about. I am loving getting my Groupon!
