Bypass Groupon to Support Local Businesses (and get the same deals!)

Groupons and other online social coupons are great way of saving money, but they cost the business tremendously. When you pay $25 for a Groupon that gives you a $50 value, the merchant gets around $12.50. If you just mention the Groupon without buying it, you could get a similar deal.

Instead of buying online, try going directly to the merchant and ask them for a similar deal (you might have to check in with the manager). Savvy business owners realize if they say no, you’ll just buy they coupon online and they’ll get less money.
