Have you ever heard about Groupon? If you’ve never or perhaps you did but never tried because you did not have any idea of what this about is and how it works. No worries, today I will tell you what this about is and how to use it.
Let’s start by explaining what Groupon is.
THIS PAGE MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS; PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
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, helps subscribers to save money by buying the service or product through this site.
To have an idea of its success, on 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 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 option Food & Drinks you will be able to see all the Groupon deals on restaurants, bars, and every place who sell food and drinks near you. But let me give you some examples.
The first example is the one on 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?
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 🙂
You did 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 around 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!
One more example, do you like pizza? You can use Groupon to buy your favorite pizza. The following example is a pizzeria that offers its large pizza with one topping for $16.00 using Groupon which regular price is $ 25.60. Or you can get a meal package worth $92.28 for just $59.00.
Besides the promotions above, you can also get up to %30 Cash Back on many restaurants.
Then, what’re you waiting to subscribe? To be honest I have not found a better application to save on restaurants so far. Subscribe now
