Frugal Column November 6, 2011

New daily deals sites are popping up on the internet every day. These daily deal sites offer big savings on food and entertainment. What is the best way to take advantage of savings up to 90% these deals offer? Start by reading the fine print. Check the voucher for any restrictions like excluded dates and any extra charges the voucher doesn’t cover. Be cautious with vouchers when you need to schedule an appointment before the expiration date. You could be one of nearly 5,000 vouchers sold and everyone is trying to sign up for classes. About forty percent of all vouchers don’t get redeemed. When you are purchasing a voucher make sure it is for something you will use. Buying a voucher to try a new product or restaurant is fine if you remember you have it. Print out your vouchers and keep track of their expiration dates. Many of these deals can only be purchased on that day or until they are sold out. If you want to unload an unwanted deal check out to sell it back or if you didn’t get the voucher you wanted they may have one for sale. Deal sites typically offer a refund or credit if you buy a voucher from a business that closes. With over 600 deal sites many are sites are going out of business and the merchant may honor the voucher. When I purchase a deal I always check the background of the business first by going directly to their website. This way when the voucher says $25 for $50 worth of merchandise you can verify that they actually have something that is priced at $50. If you spend more than the amount of the voucher you may not end up with a good deal. Don’t let the excitement of these deals lead you an impulse buy. Check out some of the most popular deal sites.

Groupon- This is the biggest deal site with over 115 million subscribers.

Living Social- Buy your voucher, then share a special link. If three friends buy, yours is free.
