Hi everyone! Recently my coworker told me about these new websites called Groupon and LivingSocial that offer a different deal every weekday on all things in the DC area. They range from activities, sporting events, spas, restaurants, etc.
What's interesting is how it works. The deal is usually 50% off whatever, for example, a meal. You then say you'd like to buy the deal. However the only way you can get this deal is if the required number of buyers (changes depending on the item) is met. You do have to give them your credit card, but it will only be charged if everyone gets the deal.
I paid $25 for $50 worth of food at Co Co Sala, which can be redeemed anytime before the end of the year. How awesome is that? You get an email with the deal to print out.
Both of these sites work the same way, but they offer different things everyday. Someone let me know if there are others out there like this.
For anyone thinking I'm promoting these sites because I'm working for them or anything, I'm not. I really think they're innovative sites that can get you deals at DC restaurants!
