Something Else Saturday: In Search of a Good Deal

ses-deals-thEveryone loves a good deal. Money off, or something extra thrown in, we all want some of that. And that led to the rise of the deal sites. We see emails from them every day, sometimes several times a day, but are any actually worthwhile?

In my current situation I need to make money work as hard as possible for me. If I am looking for a manicure or a pedicure, or occasionally a hairdresser, I will check out deal sites and see what is on offer. It used to be that I would go to the same beauty salon all the time. I was a loyal customer, as the prices were good, and the service excellent. Unfortunately they closed down and since then I have moved about a lot. I haven’t had any bad experiences, but I have heard of them. Can you really get a good service in a good salon when you are paying only a fraction of the usual price, and the salon are only getting an even smaller fraction of that? Should you expect high quality salons to advertise on deals sites, or only salons where the price may be good, but you wouldn’t normally go anywhere near the place?


The morning deluge of deals emails…


So, today for Something Else Saturday, I am looking for opinions on whether deals sites do offers that are actually worthwhile. Have you had particularly great experiences with them, or particularly horrific? Are they a good way of saving money, or should I spend the extra money, find somewhere and stick with them? Please do let me know in the comments!
