One of my most fabulous friends introduced me to Groupon tonight. She mentioned the site before, but I completely forgot about it, until an email arrived in my inbox offering $25 tickets to the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show in Washington, DC. I thought about booking tickets for this event this summer, but now I’m unbelievably happy that I waited. I saved $30 off the price of both tickets and $60 in savings is a heck of a lot of money.

According to their website, “Groupon features an unbeatable deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat and buy in your city. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find elsewhere. We call it collective buying power.” You can learn more about the power of Groupon in the FAQ. It’s a fascinating idea to help stretch your entertainment dollars.

If you want tickets to the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show in Washington, DC for just $25 you must act fast. The offer ends at midnight tonight. If any of you do purchase tickets or sign up for the Groupon website please use my referral link. For every friend that registers and makes a purchase Groupon will add $10 to my Groupon account.
