Groupon

Has anyone had any luck with Groupon? I just signed up and wondering what experiences folks have had, and what deals you've gotten!

DH signed up but said so far in our area it's mostly been for spas and manicures and waxings, a few restaurants about an hour away. Nothing he's interested in yet so we haven't used it. The most interesting one was a tour of a microbrewery that included a light meal and a 6-pack for half price. Since we don't drink much, it didn't get used.

I signed up a couple of weeks ago. I haven't bought anything yet.

I LOVE Groupon! I've bought a few things on it. I've done a couple of laser hair removal things, salon stuff mostly. Very very good deals, and no issues with redeeming them either.

I am also doing Dealfind and Swarmjam. Liking all of them so far, but have yet to redeem a Dealfind or Swarmjam.

I was able to get one of my photos put on stretched canvas. I paid $40. Without Groupon it would have been about $140.

Does Groupon accept PayPal for payment?

I signed up for Groupon a couple of weeks ago, so far there seem to be some good deals, just nothing that was a fit for us yet. One deal I thought was pretty good was for $750 you could get $1500 towards a houseboat trip on Shuswap Lake in BC. I have been houseboating before and this is a good deal with a reputable company. It was just too short of notice for us to get a group together to go. Buy for folks who were planning this kind of vacation it would have been great.
