A great tip for taking advantage of daily deal sites like Groupon is to check other cities you may be visiting.  We have family in Salt Lake City so I subscribe to their emails.  Today’s deal is for $35 of product at Joe’s Coffee House for only $15.  This is a 57% savings, and the best part, you redeem it online.  This means no matter where you live you can take advantage of the deal.  They have $5 flat rate shipping that would be additional. 


#1) Purchase Groupon certificate for $15 

Buy (2) bags of 1lb Estate French Roast @ $11.50
Buy (1) bag of 1lb Estate Costa Rican Tarrazu Dota @ 11.95
Pay shipping $5 

Subtotal: $39.95
Redeem $35 Groupon certificate
Total OOP for 3 bags of coffee shipped: $19.95 or $6.65 per bag

#2) Purchase Groupon certificate for $15

Buy (3) boxes of Ashbys of London Gourmet Teas @ $7.95 (assorted flavors)
Buy (1) box of Mighty Leaf Tea @ $9.95 (assorted flavors)
Pay shipping $5

Subtotal: $38.80
Redeem $35 Groupon certificate
Total OOP for 4 boxes of tea, shipped: $18.80 or $4.70 per box

Thanks for the great scenarios, Emilie.  She also checked to make sure if your order was slightly under $35, that you could still use your certificate and you can!

Are you new to Groupon?  You can sign up here to learn about all their daily deals.  We don’t have any physical deals here in Eastern Washington, but it’s awesome to know that there are online deals we can still take advantage of!
