I’m sure many of you are already signed up for this, but if you’re not and you live in a [major] city where they offer their services, you should definitely check out Groupon. So what is Groupon? This video explains it best.
I was surprised when I went to embed this video that I actually know the motion graphics animator who made it. For those of you who have read some of my earlier posts, you may recognize his name (Brad Chmielewski) because he co-hosts a video podcast with my friend, Ken, called the Hop Cast (yes, this is the specific episode that I got a shout out).
Anyways, back to Groupon. I’ve seen some pretty cool offers for things like golf lessons, spa deals, restaurants/bars that I already go to, events, etc. Probably the most interesting thing that came out of signing up for Groupon is that it has introduced places that I didn’t know about or things that I never thought about doing previously but they seem more appealing to try because the risk has been reduced.
