Every parent knows it’s important to get away every once in a while for some adult time, which is why we are huge advocates of date night. From dinner and movie to a full-blown weekend getaway, we all need it. To make all your future date nights easier (and more affordable), we wanted to introduce you to three amazing group coupon sites that give members access to incredible activities around the country at seriously discounted rates.
1. First, there’s LivingSocial.com. They offer daily deals in cities from Atlanta to Denver (click here for the full list) that allow members to save 50% at the best restaurants and other activities like group hikes. Each deal is only available for one day, so you can’t mull over a deal that piques your interest. Once you buy your deal you can invite friends to buy the deal. If three of your friends buy it, your deal is free. You can’t sit on your coupon forever, though–all deals come with expiration dates.
2. The deals on CherryDeals.com are a little more obscure, but this is the place to score something you’ll actually use rather than just experiences. These deals are available no matter where you live in the country and some are available fore more than 1 day. This is really helpful because one day you may not think you need a coupon for $50 toward Colorado Bag N Baggage luggage, then suddenly dad surprises you with a weekend escape. If you don’t have luggage, you can still purchase that deal within a day or two. And if you are the plan ahead type, once you buy the deal you have 90 days to cash it in.
3. Groupon.com is a lot like LivingSocial.com in that there are daily deals for lots of different cities. What makes this site different, though, is that each deal isn’t “locked in” until a certain number of people purchase it. The idea is that Groupon.com has collective bargaining power with restaurants, spas and other services so they can lock in a really low price only if they guarantee a certain number of people will pay that price. So once you see an amazing deal on Groupon.com–like a 60-minute massage for $40– the key is to share it with all of your friends (via Facebook and Twitter, of course) so they buy it, too.
