Hole in the Wall Concert Venue in Portland, Oregon
We’ve been on the receiving end of a few different Groupon gifts in the past while.
Not long ago, Ted went out with a group of friends for a great tasting at House Spirits, and they used the sweet passes he got for Father’s Day.
This summer, my mom bought passes to take Lucie to an elk farm! (An elk farm? Who would’ve thought?)
I keep thinking I’m going to snag a deal to a local spa for a little solo R&R.
I have to admit, using Groupon is a fun way to feel like you’re getting a deal on an experience that you’d otherwise pay more for or miss out on entirely.
My Groupon Advice:
- Choose something that will make for a new adventure and a good story – keep life interesting! Challenge yourself to go out of your comfort zone.
- Be extra kind and courteous and mindful that occasionally the rush of Groupon users can mean extra stress for the business and visitors. Go above and beyond to be a pleasant patron.
- Be generous – surprise someone in your life with a treat! Since deals are often half off (or more), you can take a friend to share an experience for the same price that it would normally cost to do it alone.
- Put a reminder in your calendar to prompt you to schedule within the coupon redemption window. Read the fine print and make the most of the fun.
Wine tastings, concerts, sporting events, movies, festivals, garden admissions…there are plenty of possibilities to use for yourself or give as a gift.
