hippychick saves some bucks and still feeds the chickens


 Hippychick digs groupon 

 - it's a buying collective and i've had excellent fun with the purchases i have made to date.  i'm saving big bucks for goods i cannot usually afford.  it's nice.  i don't take part in each and every deal - that's for sure - but the every so often, i do.  groupon is a great way to have some fun and still feed the chickens.  give it a look see, it's free to join and present in many many citys around the world. 

How It Works

  1. Each day we feature something cool to do at an unbeatable price.
  2. You only get it if enough people join that day… so invite your friends!

I like today's deal - how do I get it?

Just click "BUY" before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people sign up, we'll charge your card and send you a link to print your Groupon. If not enough people join, no one gets it (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the deal!

Do I need to use my Groupon the same day I buy it?

No. Many Groupons have an expiration date, but you never have to use them on the date of purchase.

I bought a Groupon - how do I use it?

Once you're charged, you'll receive an email with a link to sign in and print your Groupon. The Groupon has redemption instructions and a map right on it!

Can I buy a Groupon as a gift for someone else?

Yes. We communicate with all the businesses that we work with that Groupons can be gifted, and unless the Fine Print specifically states otherwise, gift away! To have us send them the gift, select the gift option at checkout.

Is Groupon safe?

Extremely. Your credit card number is transmitted by SSL directly to a secure electronic vault. At no time is your credit card information stored on our servers.

What happens if my Groupon expires?

All is not lost! Once a Groupon reaches its expiration date, it loses its promotional value, but you can still redeem it at the price you paid for the length of time stated by gift certificate laws in your state.

Where did you get the name "Groupon?"

Groupon is a city in Switzerland where Goodyear tires are sold at heavily discounted rates.

When will Groupon be in my city?

Hopefully soon - we're growing fast. If you'd like to help us launch Groupon in your city, feel free to email us.


and then there is another like site - living social - they run in a very similar manner.  i have joined both free services.  you sign up and claim your nearest city - the good news it that you can join in on the deals in any city - use the coupons for gifts or for yourself when you travel.
