There are some great deals today at GroupOn. If you aren’t sure what this site is about, read up on my GroupOn 101 page. Remember that you can purchase a deal from any city in the country, regardless of where you live or where you signed up. These can be a great way to save on dining out or services if you are planning on heading to another city.
If you are on the fence about purchasing, I’ve got a great reason for you to go ahead and do so. Right now, 8% of your purchase price will go directly to fight childhood cancer.
Recently, a family in Washington DC lost their infant son to brain cancer. You can read their entire story here. So your purchases will actually be one way you can help battle this horrible disease the afflicts so many children and families. In fact, I have pledged all purchases made for the next 7 days will go directly to this charitable cause. This is truly a win-win situation! You get a great deal and they get money to help fight cancer!
