Nothing stands out today as something I want (or need) to buy. I try to look for things that are either something I would have bought anyway or a new experience that is worth the money and something I’ve wanted to try. I am a big buyer of restaurant deals, love those! Some of the best ones I have purchased were on Gilt City and Bloomspot, I especially love the tasting menus that have a select few items to choose from. Some highlights have been a deal for Meritage at the Claremont, Zut and Bin 38.
Some not so great deals… The couple’s massage class I insisted on getting. It was in a pretty sketchy neighborhood and the lady was a no-show (which was actually a blessing in disguise). Major fail. Also, a restaurant in Danville that had a waiter who wouldn’t take my Living Social voucher on my smart phone, I had one foot out the door when the owner came rushing out to apologize and seated me in another waiter’s section.
Some other favorites… Admission to Golden Gate Fields. I loved watching the horse races! Fred, not so much. Finding cool shopping deals is another one that I love. My dad loves Peet’s Coffee and Tea, I just found a deal on Gilt City for a $50 Peet’s gift card (I paid only $38). Plus, I bought the deal through My Points which gives me 2 points per dollar that I spend on Gilt City. How could I pass that up?!
