Groupon has been great for restaurant deals!

I got a free $10 to use for having signed up with groupon, and i got a hair cut with that 10$! yay for deals

205
Mary May 20, 2011 at 7:14 am

I often use these deals to go to dinner or buy products that I wouldn’t normally try. I’ve yet to be disappointed! They are fabulous!!

206
Malinda May 20, 2011 at 7:14 am

not yet – hoping to find a deal that interests me……

Jamee @ A New Kind of Normal May 20, 2011 at 7:15 am

I think I am a daily-deal-site-aholic! I subscribe to so many! But I tend to like zulily the best! I have gotten some great deals for my daughter!

209
Kiley May 20, 2011 at 7:15 am

I have bought some things off groupon and groopdealz, they turned out to be a great deal, and i still enjoy the items! I’ve bought headbands, rings, more headbands….i don’t remember what else. ;)

210
Corrie May 20, 2011 at 7:15 am

I’ve purchased several thro’ Groupon & LivingSocial…coupons and giftcards to Amazon, Gap, Yogurt Zone…. :) I’ve had good success with them; just make sure you only buy deals for things that are easily available in your area and that you would buy anyway.
Thanks for the oppotunity!

211
Jules May 20, 2011 at 7:17 am

Love—Deals of the day…Have scored on deals at the local nursery! New tomato plants that is, and one of my favorite cooking stores too. But our favorite deals we use for “date night” a great dinner out at half the price! Great fun! Will check out VeryJane too.
cheers!

212
Elizabeth May 20, 2011 at 7:17 am

I actually have never heard of deal of the day but I LOVE etsy so I will have to check it out!

Brittany May 20, 2011 at 7:17 am

I’ve taken some of Very Jane’s free incentives.. Owl prints, etc. Love the website!!!

215
Julie G May 20, 2011 at 7:18 am

Most of the Groupons are from companies I have already tried. One was an unfamiliar company, but it turned out well. 2 of my purchases have been Shutterfly books, and they were great!

216
Claire Snyder May 20, 2011 at 7:18 am

Have not tried the website but am always looking for new ideas, things, and
to expand knowledge.

217
Krista May 20, 2011 at 7:19 am

What a cool cool site!! LOVE this. And… and chance for some amazing gift certificates! Thank you!

Crystal Hamilton May 20, 2011 at 7:19 am

Nope! :)

Betsy May 20, 2011 at 7:20 am

Love the camera straps. I have never purchased from Very Jane but added myself to get the daily emails.

220
Tina May 20, 2011 at 7:20 am

I bought a few things from NoMoreRack.com. I wasn’t overly impressed with the quality of what I got or the shipping. It took a MONTH to get my orders!

I did get a membership to the MD Zoo via Groupon for 1/2 price and that was a great deal!

221
Becca May 20, 2011 at 7:21 am

I subscribe to groupon, and I’ve bought quite a few things from there. Some turn out to be great deals, some not so great.

222
tori May 20, 2011 at 7:21 am

I’ve purchased stuff from Groupon and Living Social and love them all!

223
Sasha May 20, 2011 at 7:21 am

I use Groupon all the time and love it! Off to check out Very Jane.

224
mekei May 20, 2011 at 7:24 am

no deal yet. i always love what i see but i need to accumulate another little pile of money for such purchases – the fun ones! dang, my birthday needs to roll back around.

225
Jamie May 20, 2011 at 7:24 am

never purchased anything from a deal a day site but have always been curious!

226
Melanie @ Whimsical Creations May 20, 2011 at 7:25 am

I have never heard of that site before. Definitely going to go check it out. Thanks for the chance to win.

227
Kristen May 20, 2011 at 7:26 am

I’ve never bought anything from a daily deal site, though I get several emails from companies who offer them. I’ve wanted to, but don’t always get to my email early enough, and sometimes it’s not a good enough deal for me or something I want. That doesn’t mean the right item isn’t going to come my way soon, though!

228
Tara @ The Butter Dish May 20, 2011 at 7:26 am

September 2011 – I was going on my first cruise ever to celebrate my 40th Birthday.

I hadn’t owned an evening gown since my prom 22 years earlier and needed two for the “elegant nights”.
I signed up to a deal of the day site that was running daily deals on evening gowns to my luck. I found two dresses that were top of the line name brand designers.

One was priced tagged at $425 and I got it for $120

The second was priced at $340 and I got that black beauty for….

ready……
wait for it…..

$40.00 – Yes that’s FOURTY dollars

for a $350 dress. That’s a steal!!

(and yes I purposely spelled “fourty” wrong because I personally think this should be the correct spelling. ☺ it makes more sense )

229
Emilie May 20, 2011 at 7:26 am

Yes, from LivingSocial! I’ve bought a few restaurant gift certificates there and it’s working out great.

230
Ashley C. May 20, 2011 at 7:26 am

I’ve never purchased from a deal a day site. I’ve looked at them, and thought about it, but never done it. Maybe I need to start that! :D

231
Jana S May 20, 2011 at 7:26 am

I’ve gotten many things from them–mainly spa services–such a great deal! One of our family favorities was a 1/2 price deal at a local aquarium. Our little son loved it!

232
AmandaP May 20, 2011 at 7:27 am

I have bought a few things from Groupon, mostly deals for places I already go to or events I was already planning to attend.

233
Tara @ The Butter Dish May 20, 2011 at 7:27 am

OH I should have mentioned the site –

IDEELI.com

Check it out!!

234
Kayla Hodel May 20, 2011 at 7:27 am

I haven’t… but I’ve received gifts from my brother and boyfriend from them. To me – that was a pretty awesome deal!

235
(ms.) Michael May 20, 2011 at 7:28 am

So glad to learn about Very Jane! Thank you!

I have used Groupon for a Shutterfly canvas and a restaurant gift certificate. Both were great for me! But I’m anxious to see hand-made items featured. Thank you for the chance!!

236
Brandy May 20, 2011 at 7:28 am

I buy from them all the time! I think my favorite deal was $10 for $20 on Amazon. Not that earth-shattering, but Amazon has everything and that’s 50% off! I’ve also purchased a lot of restaurant deals and some fun deals for weekend activities.

237
Sharon May 20, 2011 at 7:28 am

I bought $10 gift cards for $1 for Brixx Pizza once off of restuarant.com

238
Tina H May 20, 2011 at 7:29 am

I have to say…I am a marketer’s dream. Make it easy to buy and tell me it is cheap…I am sold. I buy stuff on these sites all the time…and love it. I have recd great deals at restaurants that I may have never tried, spa services, and even a gondola ride.

239
Melissa May 20, 2011 at 7:29 am

I never have…I always look but I’m never ready to commit! However, my future mother in law gets Groupons and gifts us with them :)

240
Sharon May 20, 2011 at 7:30 am

I bought a refurb laptop from one of the tech sites that I was very pleased with!

241
Ashley May 20, 2011 at 7:31 am

I’ve purchased from a couple of daily deal websites. I’ve gotten shoes for my daughter, a Wii video game, and free Redbox rentals. I think they’ve all been good deals.

242
lesli May 20, 2011 at 7:31 am

Looks like a fun new site. I love Etsy type things. I belong to Groupon–mostly I use it for restaurants. Happy Friday!

243
Sarah May 20, 2011 at 7:31 am

Yep great deals from Kidsteals and Babysteals!

244
Linda May 20, 2011 at 7:32 am

I’m not subscribed to any of those sites, but maybe will try them out! Thanks for the contest–

245
Laura Loomis May 20, 2011 at 7:33 am

Thanks for this cool opportunity!!!!

246
Emily Crall May 20, 2011 at 7:33 am

I’ve never bought anything off of deal-of-the-day type websites. I’m too chicken. A gift card could get me started though! ;)

247
Lori May 20, 2011 at 7:33 am

Other than QVC’s “today’s special” I have not done any deal of the days. Will definitely check this one out though! Thanks!
Lori

248
Laura Fitzgerald May 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

I’ve bought discount gift cards (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, local restaurants, etc..) but the newest one I bought was for a local artisan glass place nearby, they hold a glassmaking class, and had a deal for half price classes!

249
Darla May 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

I have purchased from Groupon and I was very pleased with the discount I got on some brownies that I had been wanting to try anyway!

250
Emily Crall May 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

I’ve never bought anything off of deal-of-the-day type websites. I’m too chicken. A gift card could get me started though. ;)

251
Amanda May 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

What a great giveaway! I have used deal a day sites for boutique coupons. I have lately signed up for a couple of new ones and local ones. I think they’re great!
Thanks!!

252
Danielle R. May 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

I haven’t bought from deal a day but I use groupon all the time. I will have to check out this site as I am addicted to the amazing deals. I have bought so many certificates for my favorite restaurants, spa deals and so much more. I love it!

253
Jenna K. May 20, 2011 at 7:34 am

I haven’t heard of Very Jane, but I’ll check it out right now. Thanks for the info!

254
Janine May 20, 2011 at 7:35 am

Nope, never have.

255
Noelle Frye May 20, 2011 at 7:35 am

I have never bought anything from a “deal of the day” site. It seems that everytime I visit the “coolest product/thing I really needed/hottest item” has just sold out!

256
Colleen May 20, 2011 at 7:36 am

Yep, I’m a sucker for a good deal! I’ve bought from several deal of the day sites. So far I’ve always been happy with my purchase. :)

257
Alison May 20, 2011 at 7:36 am

I have not ever purchased anything from this site but I can’t wait until I do!!

258
Laura @ Dunning Duo May 20, 2011 at 7:37 am

I’ve bought a few things from these sites. There seems to be getting more and more. I bought vinyl chalkboard stickers from a site called Group Dealz , a few restaurant deals from living social and groupon, a shutterfly book, etc. They have all worked out really well and I have had no problems getting the deals. There are definitely good deals out there on these sites. I’ve probably signed up for 5+ over the past 6 months to a year now but haven’t purchased something from every site. Never heard about Very Jane so I guess I have another one to add to the list.

259
Debi Kelley May 20, 2011 at 7:37 am

Can’t say I have but I do love to check out different websites. I’ve never heard of woot.com or veryjane so I’ll have to go check them out now. Thanks for the chance to win this.

260
Valerie May 20, 2011 at 7:37 am

This would be my first time of using a “deal site”. Would love to win!!

261
Alicia P May 20, 2011 at 7:38 am

I have but they have been little things like 3 for 1 redbox or movie tickets.

262
Heidi F May 20, 2011 at 7:38 am

Yes, I have purchased deals of the day before. The first that comes to mind is fabric. Awesome giveaway!

263
Katie May 20, 2011 at 7:38 am

I bought a magazine subscription once and it was a great deal.

264
Jan May 20, 2011 at 7:39 am

I’ve never heard of Very Jane, but will spread the word by adding a link of this on my blog! Thanks and have a great weekend!

265
Leah Moynihan May 20, 2011 at 7:39 am

What a super cute site! I’ve bought a groupon for a photo canvas and a gift certificate for shoes…both good deals!

266
Dar May 20, 2011 at 7:39 am

Never tried the deal of the day but I’m a frequent amazon shopper : )

267
K williams May 20, 2011 at 7:40 am

Bought recently from livingsocial, it was an awesome deal for food from a local meat butcher. Plus they will give it to you for free when you get 3 friends to buy the deal! Never heard of Very Jane but I love it etsy!!!

268
Lisa May 20, 2011 at 7:40 am

I have bought from Groupon and mamapedia. I’m always on the lookout for a deal!

269
Bernice May 20, 2011 at 7:41 am

I’ve never tried any “deal of the day” sites but I’ve been hearing lots about them!

270
Jennifer Rutledge May 20, 2011 at 7:41 am

I’ve gotten several deals at restaurants to use. Who doesn’t want extra money off their meal? From my latest $20 restaurant purchase, we’ll get $50 worth of food and drinks. Woot!

271
Leah May 20, 2011 at 7:41 am

No, I have not. I just discovered this website yesterday!

272
Sadonna Lingnau May 20, 2011 at 7:42 am

Never heard of Very Jane but I like some of the deals that are posted on there. Plan to buy a few this morning.

273
Nikki May 20, 2011 at 7:43 am

I haven’tpurchased anything from a deal a day site.

274
Clara May 20, 2011 at 7:43 am

I have used lots of Deal of the Day sites. Sometimes they have great stuff and sometimes it is junk. It is just hit and miss I guess but I check them out all the time.

Fabulous giveaway and I will be checking out this new site for sure.

275
Jewels May 20, 2011 at 7:43 am

Yes. I have bought several things. One being a night light for my daugther that changes colors. She loves it and it puts her to sleep which is a bonus for us!

276
T. Rich May 20, 2011 at 7:43 am

I have purchased from Tanga and Groupon. I think I got good deals. I would love to win this one. :)

277
Heidi W May 20, 2011 at 7:44 am

My husband loves shirt.woot but I have never bought anything for me from a ‘daily deal’ website.

278
Kori May 20, 2011 at 7:44 am

No… :( I never have. But most don’t show stuff I’d be interested in. Very Jane seems very cute though! lol

279
DJ Jaeger May 20, 2011 at 7:44 am

I have never bought anything from a deal-a-day website, but it is mostly because I can’t decide, and then the offer expires ha! I think it is a great way to get new names out into the shopping ether, but it requires those willing to take a chance…which I haven’t gotten around to yet!

280
Ali May 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

Awesome giveaway. I’ve gotten a few things from Woot.com and used Groupon once. So far my experiences have been great.

281
Janet May 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

I am a member of a bunch of “deal a day” websites. I have used living social and groupon the most. I have purchased weekend getaways, skydiving, dinners and the list goes on and on. i have never had a problem using any of the deals and i think it is great idea. why not hit the town in style and save 50%…

282
Angie -- Bigbearswife May 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

I’ve never bought anything from a “deal a day” website but I’ve been very tempted too lol

283
Kayla May 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

I have used Yugster! I really like their deals and they have some of the cutest watches! Every once in a while they have grab-bag type deals where you pay a certain price for a mystery box. Totally worth it! I got a nice pocket knife that I keep in my car and a pair of really nice night vision binoculars which my fiancee is excited about for hunting!

284
Lisa May 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

I have purchased a thing or two from woot.com. I am very exciting to go browse Very Jane! I am in love with those rings already.

285
Tina L May 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

I just bought my first thing yesterday. I pedicure for 50% off, we will see if it turns out to be a good deal or not in a couple weeks!

286
Jodi Krautkramer May 20, 2011 at 7:46 am

I don’t think I ever have, unless Forever21 counts… This is SOO cool!

287
Tricia May 20, 2011 at 7:46 am

I LOVE daily deal sites! We mostly buy certificates that equal a cheap date night. Coupons for food, movie tickets, museums…things like that.

288
Kerrie Jones May 20, 2011 at 7:46 am

I’ve purchased a couple of groupons and they did end up being great deals! I try to never purchase a coupon/groupon unless it is something that I would use anyway- same with grocery coupons- it’s not a good deal if you spend money you would not have originally spent in order to save! Also, wanted to say to the Kevin and Amanda readers that I am passionate about helping my sister raise money for the juvenille diabetes research association-they are giving away many prizes including an ipad2- if you so desire, visit http://www.caylinscure.com for more information. Thank you!

289
Jenn May 20, 2011 at 7:47 am

We have purchased some stuff from Woot. For the most part, we have been pleased with the products, mostly techy type stuff.

290
Kendra May 20, 2011 at 7:47 am

I have purchased items from a couple of different steal a day sites. I mostly use http://www.greenbabybargains.com, http://www.zulily.com and http://www.babysteals.com. I am usually very happy with these purchases because they are great discounted prices, but you have to be very careful about the shipping charges. Sometimes they are so expensive that they make the steal not worth it!

291
Tawnya May 20, 2011 at 7:47 am

Love, Love these rings! I’ve not heard of this site yet and have not bought anything.

292
Amy N May 20, 2011 at 7:47 am

I have found lots of great deals on deal of the day sites – canvases, gym memberships, clothes – love them!

293
Emily May 20, 2011 at 7:47 am

I buy things from deal sites all the time! Shutterfly books, restaurant coupons, even a Nordtrom Rack groupon! Recently bought a sailing adventure in the San Francisco Bay for our upcoming trip there!

294
Tami May 20, 2011 at 7:48 am

Only once about a week ago. I bought some ribbon and a cute little gable box for it…so cute and a great deal! Thanks for the chance!

295
Neda May 20, 2011 at 7:48 am

I’ve used both Groupon and GroupDealz, will have to add Very Jane to my list! I don’t purchase often…it has to be a *really* great deal (at least 50% discount). Thanks for the giveaway! Hope you’re enjoying Atlanta!

296
Crystal May 20, 2011 at 7:49 am

The hubbs and I love those deal-a-day sites! We’ve bought everything from clothes to electronics, and have been really happy with the deals.

297
Valerie P. May 20, 2011 at 7:49 am

I’ve bought many things from various deal of the day websites. My most favorite purchase was for a 90 min. massage. It turned out being the BEST massage of my life!!!!

298
Natalie @ Queen of Whirled May 20, 2011 at 7:52 am

I’ve never purchased from this site, but I’m on my way there now. Thanks!

299
Tina Mac May 20, 2011 at 7:52 am

I have bought something through a deal a day type of sight. It was a $50 gift certificate for $25. I actually bought the g.c. for my sister to give to me for a Christmas gift. So it turns out that the $75 purse cost me $25. Not bad at all.

300
Teale May 20, 2011 at 7:54 am

Never heard of Very Jane but now I’ll check them out!

301
DebbieB May 20, 2011 at 7:54 am

I bought an Amazon $20 gift card for $10 fom Living Social. Great deal in my opinion! Really interested in trying one of the Bed and Breakfast weekend getaways they are always offering.
