GroupOn: Desserts, Personalized Cards & Other Great Deals!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

I’ve been talking about GroupOn a bit lately and if you don’t know what this is about, let me fill you in.  This is a site where there is one deal in each city around the country.   You don’t always have to reside in the city where there is a deal, however, some are local, so you’d need to in order to cash in on them.

The way it works is that a deal is put up.   If enough people purchase the deal prior to midnight, then everyone’s card is charged and you get in on the offer.  However, if GroupOn doesn’t sell the minumum required offers, then no one is charged and the offer dies. 

There ar several great deals today.  Just select Cities from the top of the page and find the one you are interested in.  Here is a recap of a few: 

  • Columbus Pay $15 today for $35 worth of desserts from Fancy Fortune Cookie.  What a fun idea for a gift for someone (or a splurge just because it is Wednesday).
  • Brooklyn Get $50 worth of personalized photo cards at Photo Card Creations for only $25.  What is great is that you can use your GroupOn towards shipping!!   Think ahead to Christmas……as this one is good thorugh February.
  • San Francisco (Deals Nearby) Get $50 worth of organic underwear from PACT Underwear for only $25. Orders of 3 or more items will receive free standard shipping.

  • Chicago (Deals Nearby) If you have old photos and slides that you want to preserve digitally, you may want to check out this offer of from ScanDigital for $100 worth of memory preservation for $40.
