KJ May 20, 2011 at 6:16 am

We just purchased our first Groupon but haven’t used it yet. Seems to be an excellent way to try out new things–which I like. Thanks for the opportunity!

Kristen May 20, 2011 at 6:17 am

Yes, I bought several things from Zulily and one thing from another site. The zuiliy stuff worked well. The nacklace I bought from the other site was very cheep looking. So I am have and lost but I will try to win again.

Patty May 20, 2011 at 6:18 am

Hi, I’ve never heard of it but will get right on it! Sometimes our world can get smaller and smaller….recently I found out another co-worker gets your e-mails also!! I live 56 miles away and she also probably lives as far away….who would’ve thought it!!

shirley May 20, 2011 at 6:18 am

I have bought recently a macaroon baking class through Groupon, a great deal, but too bad the classes was too full and over bought, they don’t want to reschedule new classes and they have to refund to me. Really feel sad that I have Missed that deal. :(

April May 20, 2011 at 6:21 am

The only thing I’ve ever purchased from a deal sight was from Zulily that has all the children’s stuff. I want half of everything they show in the emails each day but had stood strong. But when they had the sailor suits on sale I couldn’t resist. However I didn’t get a great deal. $30 for one outfit is too much!

Mikki May 20, 2011 at 6:21 am

brilliant giveaway! I’ve never bought anything from a site like this but I may just take a look at this one. It sounds like a good idea!

Chris W May 20, 2011 at 6:21 am

I just signed up yesterday to receive email notices, therefore, I have not yet had the opportunity to shop. However, I thinks this is an awesome idea and way to give new things a try. Thanks for sharing with us all. I would love to be a winner and I love Kevin and Amanda, have been following them for a while.

Tracy May 20, 2011 at 6:21 am

Kelly Massman May 20, 2011 at 6:22 am

I have bought one deal of the day from Very Jane. I don’t know yet, because I haven’t gotten the item! It sounds like a good idea, though! Thanks for a chance to win!

Mom24@4evermom May 20, 2011 at 6:23 am

I have bought things, the most successful was a “sweet and sassy” makeover for my daughter. Unfortunately, I have also bought duds that I ended up never using.

melyssa May 20, 2011 at 6:23 am

I bought a mustache necklace made by little miss momma from a group-deal site. Love the necklace & loved the price:) Thanks for the chance!!

Yes. I’ve bought several – a 16×20 canvas from Groupon and also a $20 gc to amazon for half price from living social. So far so good.

Tiffany May 20, 2011 at 6:30 am

Our first groupon purchase was to a “wilds” type zoo. We got 4 tickets and went as a family. It was a great time and really was a good DEAL!
What a great giveaway…. Thanks!

Hannah Sparks May 20, 2011 at 6:32 am

I have bought a groupon for Kobe in Honolulu, but our trip is in two weeks, so I haven’t used it yet. It was $60 gift certificates for $24!

An amazon gift card would be great to help me finish getting things ready for our trip!

Can’t wait to check out the etsy store!

Maureen May 20, 2011 at 6:33 am

Nicole H. May 20, 2011 at 6:34 am

I’ve purchased many “deal-a-day” coupons! Whoever came up with this brilliant idea is a genius! The best one I found in Boston was for a cupcake shop and also a gourmet chocolate shop. I got double the treats for half the price! pure HEAVEN! Deal-a-days also allow my husband and I go out on a few more dates with each other without breaking the bank!

Katie M May 20, 2011 at 6:35 am

Yes, I have used Groupon twice. Got a great deal!!

Hannah May 20, 2011 at 6:35 am

No I haven’t bought anything from that site before. Love a giveaway!

Tracy May 20, 2011 at 6:37 am

Yes, yes, yes. I love the idea.
I recently became a fanatic of the site. They have tons of great offers for children and women… and occasionally men too. They also have toy offers and kids’ room decor. I have bought a toddler’s keyboard for the computer, flip flops for myself, a baby gift for a friend and most recently a red and white polka dot halter dress, a matching skirt and a tank top – and an adorable matching polka dot purse for my toddler. I’ve even recvd two $15 credits for referring friends who purchased too. Can you say ADDICTION??

Olivia May 20, 2011 at 6:37 am

I have never bought anything from Woot but glad I know about it now! I just signed up! Love finding new deals, thanks!

I’ve done a deal through Groupon to get some professional soccer tickets at half price. What a great deal! My family was so excited because there was no other way we could have afford to do that! Hooray for online deals :)

Shauna Barrier May 20, 2011 at 6:46 am

I am obsessed with the daily deals from LivingSocial and Groupon! I also visit Etsy everyday! My favorite etsy purchase thus far is a Designer SLR Camera bag :) How cool to combine a deal site with handmade items! Can’t wait to check it out!

Memorie May 20, 2011 at 6:47 am

I can’t say I’ve ordered from there either, but I love Etsy. That’s where I purchased my daughter’s Fancy Nancy tutu for her birthday and party favors. Love them. Please pick me!!!

Misti May 20, 2011 at 6:48 am

I have used Groupon a couple of times, but that’s it. Very Jane looks pretty cool, though!

Krita May 20, 2011 at 6:49 am

No I haven’t but after reading this I’m thinking I should!

Nancy McElwee May 20, 2011 at 6:50 am

I just heard about this site for the first time. I am constantly checking Etsy and have bought many items from there. Already signed up for Deal a Day with my email and liked them on Facebook. Can’t wait to find out more.

Joan Pratt May 20, 2011 at 6:51 am

Yes, I got a Barnes and Noble $20 gift card fro $10. There are a lot of good deals on these sites but they fill up your in-box daily.

Sarilyn May 20, 2011 at 6:51 am

Only once — an even match donation to Red Cross for earthquake relief in Japan.

Janice May 20, 2011 at 6:51 am

I have and I love it!! Feels like find that perfect item on a clearance rack!! I recently bought 2 very vivid printed dust pans (yes dust pans). Great deal and so pretty you don’t have to hide them away. I like finding the unique and different. Looks like this one falls right into my criteria!!

Trisha May 20, 2011 at 6:51 am

Jennifer Woods May 20, 2011 at 6:53 am

Candice J May 20, 2011 at 6:53 am

I purchased a $20 gift card for Amazon for $10 on living social a couple months ago :) Sounds like a fun new deal site, thanks for the heads up!

Mary May 20, 2011 at 6:53 am

Yep, watch Groupon and have purchased. We are new in our area so it is a great way to find out about places to go, businesses or activities in the area. Have purchased mostly restaurant coupons. Just tried one deal of the day for product this week on another deal a day and the “deal” price was closer to the quality of the product, so I felt like I got my money’s worth but not a “deal”.

Cat May 20, 2011 at 6:53 am

I have to admit that I’ve never even checked one out. You have my curiosity piqued though!

Sara P May 20, 2011 at 6:55 am

Never have. But I’m not much of an impulse buyer.

Jynelle May 20, 2011 at 6:55 am

Gift Certificates to my favorite local restaraunt…..that was the deal I stole……….thanks for the giveaways & great site!

Krissy May 20, 2011 at 6:56 am

Hi. I have never bought anything from these sites, but I do get daily e-mails from Etsy and Groupon and they both have some great items. Maybe one day I will be blessed with a daily deal. Have an awesome weekend!

Kelly Elliott May 20, 2011 at 6:56 am

Kristen May 20, 2011 at 6:57 am

I’ve gotten Groupon deals (used one last night to go to Movie Tavern); gotten several flat screen monitors; numerous scrapbook supplies; toys; clothes; household items; the list goes on and on! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE online daily deals. Oh what I could do with a $100 gift card. Thanks for this opportunity!

Kelly Johnson May 20, 2011 at 7:12 am

I’m a huge deal a dayer! Groupon, steep and cheep, seize the deal, half price depot, 1daysale and more! Idint think I’ve ever been disappointed because I really think before I buy. I also read all of the details! Expiration date, restrictions, limitations, etc. Know the rules first.

Good luck everyone, and thanks for the chance at the amazon cards!

Katie H. May 20, 2011 at 7:12 am

Sure have! I bought a deal for Qdoba Mexican Grill and it worked perfectly for a cheap date night for my husband and I! :)
