Groupon

A lot of you are probably aware of this already, but just in case, I thought I'd share a pretty cool website I came across a few months back. It's called Groupon (the French version of CityDeal), and as the name suggests, is a site for group coupons.

The way it works is they negotiate some pretty great deals with companies all over France and then they publish them on their website (or you can choose to receive their daily emails). If enough people decide to participate, the "deal" is validated and they email you your gift certificate. There are several ways to pay - I usually use PayPal. FYI: The payment is only taken from your account if the deal is validated.

Here are a few that I've chosen - a massage + foot reflexology for 18€ instead of 50€, a 36€ gift certificate for the Happy Days Diner for 18€, a 15€ gift certificate for Jeff de Bruges chocolate for 7€, etc. Plus a surprise for C for our anniversary, but more about that later....

Groupon is available all over France, not just in Paris, so feel free to check out their website. And if you do decide to sign up, it'd be great if you could do it through my parrainage link here.

Happy Deal hunting!

haha, how timely, I just signed up yesterday! I'd never heard of it, but it seems a cool idea.

My husband has purchased some...20% off of the Aquarium at Trocadero and a Wine deal. It's great. I heard about it when we were State Side from a friend. But nothing exciting came up when I was viewing it. But the Paris one...seems pretty decent.
