Are You Missing Out?

There is a huge phenomenon buzzing up the web at the moment, and I want to be sure you don't miss out. I'm sure most people already have a Groupon account. If you don't, sign up right now, here's why:

  • Deals that are so good, I can't understand how they get them. I assume they're loss-leaders. If you have any inside info, let me know. I guess it's a win/win arrangement of free marketing in exchange for lost earnings. 
  • Whatever the case... we win! It is quite common to see reductions well over 50% - in fact, over 90% isn't uncommon.
Here's an example of one of the latest offers. An X Box, with 3 months broadband for...

Tell you what, why don't you work it out. What would you pay for a brand new X Box? What about 3 months of broadband to go with it? Got a number? Right, now think of a discount. Ready...

£10. Yep. Seriously. Not £10 off... just £10!!! There's only a limited number, and they're only around for a few hours. At the time of writing, there's 27 hours left to get this deal before it expires, and over 1,700 people have snapped up their £10 X Box. I'm picturing the look on the face of whichever child/partner/friend opens that on Christmas Day. A decent box of chocolates costs more than that! It's madness! The broadband is with Orange - the people I use. My broadband signal is consistently stronger than that of my friends on BT etc. I recommend it! In fact, the deal going forward is cheaper than I have. Wonder if they'd change it for me if I bought the X Box. I'd save a stack of money and get a free X Box. Seems unlikely, but might be worth a try. It's an amazing deal.

These deals are the best I've seen. Bearing in mind that I'm approached by advertisers every day to promote their products and services, I see LOTS of products and services. The stuff on Groupon is consistently superb. Everything from hotels to professional photo shoots can be found there, but they are all very, very limited in both time and number. The trick is to subscribe for updates so you don't miss them.

The service is available in a number of countries, and you can see results for both your country and local areas.
