Groupon is a worldwide e-commerce marketplace founded in Chicago in 2008. The website connects its subscribers with local merchants by offering its different services like activities, travel, products, restaurants, spas among many others at a lower price. 


The idea is helping retailers to make themselves known in their neighborhood through the website resulting in more sales for them, but at the same time, it helps subscribers to save money by buying the service or product through this site.


To have an idea of its success, in 2010 was available in more than 150 cities in North America and 100 around Europe, Asia, and South America. Currently, it is in more than 500 cities around the world in more than 28 countries.


How to Save Money with Groupon Eating At  Restaurants

Okay before you know how you can save a few dollars eating in restaurants I want to tell you why you must subscribe to Groupon. 

If you think I am going to mention many reasons to do it you’re wrong, there is only one but a strong one and is that all the offers here are exclusive for the subscribers, and it’s completely free to sign up! Did I get your attention now? Good! Sign Up here


After Signing Up what next

If you already subscribed now I will tell you what to do next, but in case you did not just take some seconds to check the site and see what you can be missing. Below, I am showing you how the site looks like and where you have to go to sign up.

After you registered Groupon will ask you to allow your location, and you have to accept, so this way the site will show you all the offers and promotions where you are.

But How Does It Work in Restaurants?

Well, when you go to the section Food & Drinks link you will be able to see all the Groupon deals on restaurants, bars, and every place who sells food and drinks near you. But let me give you some examples. 

The first example is the one in the picture below. You see a Chuck E. Cheese – 50% off. The promotion is for a $10 Gift Card you are only paying $5.00! Cool, right?


Chuck E. Cheese's Groupon Deal


Not sure how you will get the gift card and how to use it. Simple, you receive an email with the purchased promotion which you have to present in the restaurant, in this case, at Chuck E. Cheese. And That’s it; you saved $5.00 by using Groupon 🙂

Did you not like the Chuck E. Cheese example? Okay, let’s do a different one. Here is the promotion.


The next example is a famous Italian Restaurant here. The offer is once again 50% off since you get a $20 voucher to spend in the restaurant, but you only pay $10 for it. Isn’t it great? I would say yes!
