If you don’t know about Groupon then…. how did you even find this site?
Whenever i go out for the day to enjoy the town I always check Groupon. they have a map filter so you can see the deals in the vicinity that you will be in. If you know that you are going to Santa Barbara for the weekend you can create a search filer.
Download the App to your smart phone and filter away. Groupon has the largest membership of merchants from eye brow threading to vacation packages.
Groupons are great because you can make your purchases gifts. most dinner coupons are around 50% off. And that goes a long way when you are dining.
