Most of you all know that I used to be a pretty avid couponer. I am the founder of AFullCup and The Coupon Cupboard. But in the years since selling those sites I have really gotten away from couponing. Today, if I use a coupon at Costco I am proud of myself.
But in the last few months I have gotten a little hooked on Groupon, Living Social and Daily Deals for Moms.It started with an innocent email from a friend that there was a ‘groupon’ out for my all time favorite garden store, Tagawa. If you live in the Denver area you no doubt know what I am talking about. Tagawa is a gardener’s paradise. Not so much a paradise on my wallet. Every year they have a big Mother’s Day sale that is sort of famous with folks out here. That weekend only the hanging baskets are Buy 1, Get 1 free. When I got the email from my friend, I thought “OK, now I have to finally figure this thing out”. My old couponing habits surfaced and I started thinking, if I got the groupon which was a gift certificate worth $50 for $25 and I did the Mothers Day sale I might make out OK on this deal. So I purchased my first one.
It was super easy to use and I had no problems with it, so when other businesses started coming out with these daily deals I bought into a few more. I just bought a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory one two days ago. YAY me.
So, it sounds great right? To me the problem is that there are too many sites doing it and doing it well. I have to now get email from each of them or check the sites daily. Pain in my butt. And I don’t like pain in my butt.
Enter my old friends from Savings.com! When Kim from TravelingMom.com, asked me to help with this weeks sponsored #TMOM twitter party, she had no idea that I used to be a Deal Pro for Savings.com. Match made in heaven on the planning part. But when I found out that they are now offering a service that aggregates all the data from daily deal type sites I was sold! How awesome. I can now just pop over there and put in my zip code and it kicks back all those deals on one page. Easy peasy!
So this Monday I will be hooking up with the folks at Savings.com (really, they are super nice people) and talking Travel and Savings on Twitter. Here are all the details on how to join in on the fun and win some cool stuff.
RSVP to be eligible to win $250 American Express gift card, two swag gifts, and a $25 gas card.
See ya Monday on Twitter!
