Don't let yo Groupon expire!

Do you guys use Groupon? Do you love it? There are totally some good deals available!

However, I've figured out how Groupon, and these businesses, make their money. It is through dummies like ME who purchase the Groupon only to let it expire! Son of a gun!

First I let a Stella's Deli groupon expire. That's okay I guess, I only paid $6 for it. I bought another for Frame Outlet for $50 (good for $100 of merchandise). Well, I'm an idiot. I thought it expired 6/23. WRONG. Try 6/20.

In honor of my idiocy, I went out and put my Sun Tan City Groupon to use this evening and got a Versa tan. I'll let you know how it turns out. I've done it before, but it's been awhile.

Also, on the subject of sunless tanning, try St. Tropez Mousse. It is awesome! Nancy first recommended it, then my friend Katherine did, too. I bought some, and it is the best self-tanner I've ever used. PSA for the day people!

PS, today is my 28th birthday. I've totally sabotaged any weight loss I've had lately. Particularly since it's damn near midnight and I'm eating a Papa John's Cheese pizza. DELICIOUS.


  1. so frustrating. to avoid this i write down in my planner a day or two BEFORE it's set to expire. right now i have a hallmark coupon exp on 6/30 so i have it written down on the 28 "hallmark Q".

  2. Happy Birthday!

    I hear you on letting Groupons expire. I believe you can still redeem them for the face value you paid, so don't throw them away when that happens. $.02

  3. Today is your birthday?!? HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILL!

    And I've yet to be brave enough to purchase a groupon deal... I'll get there.

  4. Happy Birthday! It's your birthday, calories don't count today (:

    I'm going to have to check out that sunless tanner. Every time I find one I like, they discontinue it.

    I hate that Groupons expire period. I used my Shamrock's one on the day it expired and they tried to say I couldn't. Then the lady got all huffy when I showed her that it expired that day and not the day before. Thanks for the reminder though, I have a couple that expire next month!
