MY answer: not at all.
For as long as I can recall, I have always been a coupon-clipping/savings card-carrying/frugalista shopper, so these sites (some of which have matching apps) help out a lot. If anything, I’m proud — and glad — that I’m able to find such great deals without much effort. I’m never embarrassed to save a buck…or more. In some cases, referring a few other folks will waive your deal cost.
How cool is that?
So far, I’m a proud participant of the following sales sites:
- DC Girls in the Know
- Deal Chicken (coming soon!)
- Deals for Deeds
- Grub With Us
- Living Social
- What’s the Deal
You can sign up for deals in your area, as well as other metropolitan areas (Atlanta, New York, etc.), so you can save while you’re on travel. Savings include things fit for everyone — male or female — who enjoy fine dining, beauty/skin care regimens, hotel accomodations and family-friendly activities. Savings range from 25%-80%, depending on the site.
So, tell me…are YOU ever ashamed to use savings vouchers/coupons? Why? Why not?
