Discount Deal & Coupon Sites Verses Black Friday

Updated: Mar 23

With Black Friday approaching this coming Friday, the last payday before Christmas I thought I would share something that is available the whole year through.

Did you know there are a couple of very good discount deals and coupon sites that offer up to an astonishing 90% off on items such as homeware to exotic holidays?

You're maybe thinking "I'm not sure of the quality/returns and it sounds complicated", well I wouldn't blame you. These were some of the things I thought about before taking the leap into the unknown of discount and coupon sites.

Here is what your missing out on, the sites, the amazing offers, and the great experiences.

Groupon was launched in 2008, an online American e-commerce site that offers activities, travel, goods, and services in 15 countries. The site offers daily local deals with a select number of Groupons available.

Refunds for local deals, customers can return any unredeemed Groupon for a refund of the amount paid within the first three days after purchase. After that, all sales are final unless stated otherwise in the fine print. However, the customer's unredeemed voucher is always worth at least the amount paid for it.

I have used Groupon on several occasions to purchase experiences and goods since 2011. During that time I have had to enquire twice about two separate purchases. On both occasions, Groupon customer service was very quick in resolving the issues and refunding the full balance paid. The issue was nothing to do with Groupon but with the provider of the goods. I still enjoy looking at and purchasing the right Groupon.

So before you travel, get that one-off deal, at a nice restaurant, spa treatment, or helicopter trip!

Today only save up to an additional 50% off on top of the 50 - 90% off! Code: GIFT50

The refund policy is slightly different where any unredeemed voucher may be returned within the first three days of purchase for a refund of the amount paid. After that three-day time period, LivingSocial will not refund any voucher and all sales are final unless otherwise stated in the fine print.
