Groupons: Now serving Omaha

So, have you heard of Groupons? It is a website that offers group coupons (thus the name). Their website says "Each day, Groupon features an unbeatable deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in your city. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it 'collective buying power!'"

So, this is how it works. If you like the product of the day, you go to your page, click "buy" and fill out your payment information and everything. If there are enough people that sign up that day before midnight to get the discounted price, your card will be charged and you will get the deal for the day. If not, they do not charge your card. So, the trick is to get enough people to sign up each day.

I signed up for this website a couple months ago as Omaha was on their list of cities served, but the Omaha deals did not actually start until yesterday. I am happy to report that now Omaha is up and running. Just to let you know, yesterday's deal was $20 for $50 Worth of All-American Fare and Drinks at 94/95 Sports Grille and today's deal is $35 for $75 Worth of Services at Turning Heads Salon & Spa.
