If you have read my blog then you know that I belong to a simple middle class family. We believe in splurging but only in moderation. It's not everyday that we go out for a brunch or dinner at a five star property and even if we do, we look for a deal that gives us value for money. and exactly here the vouchers of Groupon comes into play.
Frankly enough I had no clue of what groupon vouchers were before I was contacted by their PR group in Kolkata. For the uninitiated, Groupon is a Worldwide deal-of-the-day website that features discounted gift certificates usable at local or national companies. It's a free service which every 24 hours broadcasts a collection of discount coupons on selected products and services. If you register at their site you will automatically receive notifications of each days coupons. Once you like a certain deal, you can purchase it online, take a print out and can redeem it at the restaurant or store at a considerable amount of discount.
The deal for me was to get the Buffet at Waterside Cafe worth Rs.1971.00 for only Rs.999.00. It's been long that I was able to spend some quality time with the husband sans the kids. So we planned for a small hiatus from the daily routine and headed to the beautifully landscaped property of Hyatt.
