One of the items in my cost-cutting tool bag is Groupon.com. If you aren't using it yet, you should. It has the 2 for 1 value of an Entertainment book, without all of the clutter. They post a local deal each day, be it food, entertainment, or services. I usually watch for stuff that is right in my area. For example, I recently picked up a certificate to a local restaurant that was $20 for $10. Groupon keeps track of all the Groupons you have purchased, and you simply print them out when you are ready to use them (or use your Iphone app). I have used about 20 Groupons so far, and have never had an issue. They are even nice enough to remind me if one has been sitting unused for a while.
My favorite Groupon so far was the $49 for a family annual pass to the Clark Planetarium. We have probably been to the Imax and Dome theaters a half dozen times so far (plus, our pass includes a popcorn each with every movie).
Tonight my family will be going to Rumrz over at The District then heading to our local Redbox. The price of both visits will be substantially reduced courtesy of Groupon.
If you haven't tried them yet, click here to check them out. (In the interest of full disclosure, I will get a free Groupon if you sign up through my click... win-win.)
