If you are not using many of the deal sites (daily or otherwise), you should be! I have used these kinds of sites to help us get aquainted with new businesses, save money at places we already love, and to get the most out of our vacations. Not too mention, the daily sites often send the deal right to your inbox to save the hassle of searching; as for the other sites, I make a point to check out current deals at least a month. Deals vary by site yet restaurants, entertainment, beauty services, fitness, and so much more are the common categories showcased. Many of these sites have at least 50% off the deals and I have seen some as much as 86% off. Examples of deals we have found: half off gift certificates that we used on an already discounted hotel stay, 75% off kids activities (i.e. museums, ice skating), $25 massages, art classes (glass fusing, pottery) to name a few over the years. Remember to read the fine print on limitations and expirations; obviously, if the gift certificate is never used it is not as great a deal. If these sites are not in your area, be patient many are expanding.
Let me know what deals have you found at these sites, sites similar that you have had success with, or whatever is on your mind!
