Groupons: What are they?
Have you ever heard of a Groupon? They are advertised on Facebook if you haven't noticed.
Groupons are one big coupon valid for an extended period of time and you get to choose when you use it. Recently they had a Groupon for 50% off a Gap purchase of $50. How it works is you buy the coupon (for $25 if you were buying the Gap one) on their site and they add it to your My Stuff folder. When you are ready to use it, print it and take it to the nearest Gap and start shopping. The groupon will say $50 off of a $50 purchase since you have already paid for it! How awesome is that!
They also have an awesome referral program. For every friend that you refer you get $10 to use towards a groupon on your choice! Think FREE money and FREE things! :)
