I too love Groupon and have purchased salon packages ($150 for a $1000 service) to car care ($25 for $80 service) and restaurant coupons ($5 for $15) for MORE than half the price! Definitely worth it for personal use, I do not have a business so I can not speak to that.

Arg! I just today's Groupon offer. If I lived in Montreal, not the 'burbs I would snap this one up. It's $5 for a $10 voucher for Ben & Jerry's. I would love to get this. But, if I bought ice cream in downtown Montreal, it would all be melted (or too soft to refreeze) by the time I got home.

Groupon is great when you finally come across a deal you can use. I've purchased it for Redbox, $1 for three rentals. Unlimited car washes for 2 months for $29. $45 credit on Blurb.com for $20.

I am not 100% sure, but I think you have a year to use any groupon you buy.

tax lady - I am also part of Montreal groupon, because we used to live there and travel there about once a month. I am on the lookout for restaurant coupons!

I bought two of the $5 coupons for ben and jerry's! My sister in law has a condo downtown that we visit often in the summer because of her rooftop pool - this would be great for a hot summer day after a swim!!

Then you might want to sign up for ilovemtl.ca. I'm going to buy a getaway to the Laurentians with another couple from them. It's $459 for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom condo, one gourmet supper per person, access to various facilities, and Sunday brunch for everyone.

We'll be going end of May or in June. (Their restaurant is closed until some time in mid-May).

I have noticed that you usually have longer to purchase travel. I have another 4.5 days before this one expires.

Can you tell I'm excited?

It varies, they usually list the dates it is valid or when it expires.
