I just heard about Groupon Coupons a couple of weeks ago. It’s a new part of Groupon (that’s my referral affiliate code, just fyi) that is just free coupons to use with their 7500+ partner sites like Macy’s, Nordstrom, Best Buy and Target. I would never suggest buying something just because there is a coupon, but why not use a coupon if you were going to buy something anyway?
Stacking Up the Savings
Another thing that hit me was that some Groupon Coupon places are also places that I can get discounted gift cards for when I use my Discover card cash back.
For example, I like Shutterfly. I’ve used them once so far to make a photo book of our cruise in mid-2013. But they are generally a more expensive splurge for me for something fun like photo books. Our cruise one cost around $10 thanks to a mailed coupon deal.
If I use my Discover cash back to buy a discounted gift card ($20 for a $25 gift card), and then I stack that with a Shutterfly Groupon Coupon, then I’m getting a great photo book for what amounts to less than $8 in credit card cash back.
That’s an inexpensive present for friends, family, or even just for me. Hahaha.
Have you heard about Groupon Coupons yet? What do you think of it?
