Thrifty Thursday! ( a little early)

Thrifty Tip #55:  Sign up for GROUPON to get amazing deals for local businesses in your city!

Here's an example what your daily email will look like.  You can take it or leave it...no problem!


The reason I'm posting this early is because for the next EIGHT HOURS, you can still buy a YEAR LONG PASS to the BLANK PARK ZOO for only $34 for a 2 person membership or $49 for an unlimited # family membership!  This is 50% off the normal price!  PLUS, when I signed up for Groupon, I received a $10 discount code in my email and the person I signed up under received a $10 credit!  So, our family membership was just $39!  We couldn't even visit the zoo one time for this price!  It's a great deal for a fun family activity!!!

So what are you waiting for...



**No worries if you don't live in the great Des Moines Metro area, there are 100's of cities to choose from, so you can choose the city closest to you!  (Although I highly doubt it's nearly as cool as good 'ol Des Moines where it was a whopping -1F when we drove to school this morning!)

We love looking at Groupon, too. I could pinch myself for missing out on the Build-a-Bear coupon. *sigh* Maybe next time. The zoo sounds like fun!! You need a taxi driver?? ;)

Thank you for mentioning this was in the Des Moines area. I'm so use to our little state being overlooked that I tend not to look at sites like this. I signed up.
