In the right-hand column of my blog, you’ll see bargains broken down by categories. One of the categories is “Daily Deal Sites.” These are sites that send out a daily e-mail with a time-sensitive bargain. Generally, the item is just available for that day (or until it sells out — whichever is first).
By carefully picking and choosing from these sales, you can save money. For instance, if you know you are going to vacation in a certain city, you can sign up to receive daily deals for that city (do this several months ahead of time)! You may be able to buy restaurant vouchers, activity vouchers, and more for 1/2 price or less.
Here are some of my favorite Daily Deal sites:
Zulily is a Daily Deal site designed specifically for moms. When you sign up, you’ll receive daily emails with bargains for moms, kids, and babies.
Groupon seems to be one of the most well-known sites. They offer a wide variety of daily deals from restaurants to theater tickets to sporting events. You can sign up to receive emails from whatever city you’d like. You can also buy a groupon from any city.
Mamasource offers deals especially for moms! From spa days to child-friendly restaurants to green and healthy living companies, you can find great bargains. Mamasource also gives 5% of your purchase price to the school of your choice.
