Ways to Save with Groupon

This is a sponsored post; however, as always, all opinions are 100% honest and all mine.

As a college student, saving money is super important to me. I cringe whenever I run out of makeup and have to run to get more, I stock up on paper towels and toilet paper during sales (seriously I have like 12 rolls of TP under my sink), and I’m always looking for ways to stay frugal and on top of a budget.

I’ve learned how to be frugal from my mom. I use to cry the whole way to Costco or Sam’s Club since I knew we would spend 937 hours in there, but the tears stopped coming when I remembered the free samples. I ate my lunch in that store just by walking by and asking nicely for stuff to give to my little sister.

I DO have a little sister, people. I’m not lying. She just wasn’t at the store with us 99.9% of the time. Nobody has to know.

Now I appreciate a good deal and I’m frugal whenever I can be. I’ve been using Groupon for quite a while; I used to search weekly for a mani/pedi deal or a save at a restaurant nearby. I just recently discovered Groupon Coupons and I knew the college Gods were watching over me. You can save SO much at SO many different places! Based on your location, Groupon gives you coupons to the stores around you and never lets you miss out on a great deal.

Like the typical college girl, my heart belongs to Target. I go in to get a notebook, mascara, and vitamins and I come out $50 later with new décor for my room, a gift for one (or all) of my roommates, flowers for every room in the apartment, and themed (!!!! THEMED!) napkins for any upcoming holiday.


Did you know that Groupon Coupons has close to 100 – ONE. HUNDRED – coupons for Target?

Go back. Read that sentence again. I’ll wait.


For my travel friends reading, I have a lot of upcoming trips planned for the summer and I’m counting down the days until school ends. Ever since my trips last summer and my time in a treehouse with GlampingHub over Christmas break, I’ve been dying to travel again. 33 days, in case you were wondering. That’s when my summer starts. Groupon Coupons has deals for flights and booking services, like Travelocity, Orbitz and Hotels.com. You can also find deals on accessories, like the perfect camera for your next road trip through Canon or your next pair of hiking boots from Gander Mountain (I personally recommend for women the Ahnu brand for footwear).

Some more coupons that stood out to me:

  • Fandango (YOU MUST GO SEE ZOOTOPIA if you haven’t already. Movies you must also see this summer if you love kids movies like me are The Secret Lives of Pets and Finding Dory.)
  • Dominos (Late night delivery to the library, amirite)
  • Victoria’s Secret (Because nobody can have too many pairs of cute undies)
  • For those of you with a fur baby, Petsmart and Nationwide Pet Insurance
  • ALDO (Grab a pair of cute sandals just in time for spring!)
  • Nasty Gal (Heading over there now to grab a cute dress for my roomie’s 21st!)
  • Zumba Fitness

Whether you’re a college student like me saving every penny you can or a parent that’s shopping for their family, Groupon Coupons offer incredible deals that you can’t pass up for all of your favorite stores, services, and brands.

Find out more ways you can save by visiting the Groupon Coupon site, Facebook page, or Twitter account.
