Groupon: Not Just Local Deals

Groupon is such a great resource for finding local deals and discounts. I've found tickets to sporting events, restaurant certificates, and theater tickets at fantastic discounts of 50% or more on Groupon. In addition to local deals, I always look for groupons in cities where I am planning a vacation and usually have many certificates and activities pre-paid before the trip. Most of these sales only last a day or two, so you need to act quickly to make your purchase.

But did you know that there are many Groupons that are online? No matter where you live, you can buy the offer. Many offers allow you to apply the groupon towards shipping. Simply click on the city that is hosting the offer and make your purchase. You'll receive a confirmation and will be able to use your voucher or code usually withing 24 hours of purchase.

Here is a sampling of what I found for today, 11/18/10:

* $25 for $50 of American Apparel clothing and accessories. For in store use in stores nationwide. When I was looking for teal blue tights last year to match my Lilly Pulitzer Seamus Jubilee dress, American Apparel was the place to find them.(Baltimore)

* $10 for $20 Worth of Decadent Sweets at For online use. You can use the groupon for shipping, too! My top pick is the lovely assortment of Thanksgiving cookies from A Dozen Eggs, one of my favorite cookie vendors. (Dallas-nearby deal)

* $30 for $50 Worth of Floral Goods from Touched By Flowers ($60 Total Value) Use online to send holiday flowers to friends and family. This is a true bargain because shipping is included! Where can you send flowers with shipping for $30? What makes this deal even sweeter is that a portion of the cost will be donated to a charity of your choice. The Persian violets are a perfect choice for almost any occasion. (Kansas City-online deal)

If you're not already a member of Groupon, use this link to sign up today. Share the good deals with your friends, too!

Have a wonderful day! It's almost Friday!
